Made for the shade

With sum­mer ap­proach­ing, there’s no bet­ter way to en­joy the view of your gar­den than from be­neath an awning

Country Life Every Week - - Market Towns -

AS a space for re­lax­ing and en­ter­tain­ing (or even an al­fresco home of­fice), the cool space be­neath an awning is sec­ond to none. More­over, in the heat of the day or in the cool of the evening, an awning cre­ates the per­fect place from which to en­joy the view of a gar­den, how­ever big or small.

With a choice of elec­tric and man­ual op­er­a­tion and a wide ar­ray of fab­rics, Lux­aflex’s range of­fers an ideal way to cre­ate a be­spoke look that will en­hance any gar­den ter­race.

Lux­afex’s Base plus lat­eral arm awning has a re­tractable arm that al­lows it to of­fer ex­ten­sive cov­er­age with a less dra­matic pitch than a canopy. Other op­tions in­clude Ital­ian-style awnings sup­ported with two side arms and per­gola awnings that have per­ma­nent sides.

When po­si­tioned over French doors, an awning will ef­fec­tively en­large in­ter­nal spa­ces such as liv­ing rooms and kitchens. Lux­afex of­fers a wide range of fin­ishes to choose from, in­clud­ing metal, such as alu­minium, which are the most hard wear­ing and can be matched to any colour. There is also a vast range of pat­terns and colours (in­clud­ing plains, stripes and wo­ven jacquards), cre­at­ing an op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate a look that is as dis­creet or dis­tinc­tive as you please. With the op­tion of a re­mote­con­trol mo­ro­tised awning, choos­ing fab­ric could be the most work you have to do.
