External Awnings - can they really be Stylish and Practical?

Posted on 6 May 2019

I'm talking about outside fabric awnings.  You've got this beautiful stylish home, everything is matching, modern colours but you are getting hammered by the hot sun.

How do you protect your home from the heat, keep the electricity bill from going into over-drive and still keep everything flowing in the style department?

You have to see the latest design from Europe!  The Ravi Pivot Arm awning!  The first time I saw it, I loved it so much I got one for our own home... and I can choose anything!

Let's be honest.  Style is not something you think of when it comes to outside blinds.  Sure, Internal blinds have kept up with colour and design trends, making them bigger now to fit our Aussie big windows.  Even motorisation has become more affordable.

Make no mistake, outside blinds were always about being practical, until the Ravi Pivot arm fabric awning came along.

It's still just as practical with blocking the harsh heat hitting your window and heating up your home.

It's still just as practical to be a more natural way to keep your home cooler than cranking up the air conditioning. Who doesn't want that?
