Deck and Awning Decorating Ideas

It’s summer and if you haven’t had time to spruce up your outdoor area, it’s not too late.  Many plant companies are having a sale which means more hanging planters and plants for your money.

Hanging planters look beautiful on your deck awning or patio cover

If you have a deck awning or patio cover, hanging plants are nice additions.  Also bird feeders are beautiful if you like to have hummingbirds or finches at your back door.  Another idea particularly for night time is little strings of lights.  These can be purchased at places like JYSK.  They also offer a variety of paper and rattan lanterns.  Lights can be hung right on your awning or patio cover, along the framework or wound around the posts.

Making your outdoor living area beautiful will provide you and your family and friends with an enjoyable place to relax and visit.

Awning to Cover Part of Deck

Acrylic Awning Built to Size


Aluminum awnings and patio covers can be built in all sizes, including the option to cover only part of your deck.  One of our customers wanted to leave maximum light coming into her home, but add a sheltered area near the deck doors.  She decided on an acrylic awning, also known as lexan or lexan thermoclear awning.  We built it exactly to the size she wanted, and put the posts to the outside of the railing.

A Deck We Can Use

A family of four was wishing they could use their deck more often, even in the rain. They suggested it would also be nice to have some shelter from the sun or shade, and be able to sit out on their deck on a hot summer day.  Additionally, they wanted to be sure their home was not too dark with a patio cover just outside their sliding glass doors.

An aluminum awning with a mixture of aluminum pans and skylights was the perfect answer.  The awning skylights provided enough light, and the aluminum pans stopped the sun from scorching the back deck on a hot summer day.

One Small Awning to Cover the Front Stairs

An older couple wanted to cover the front stairs to their home as they felt it would be safer for them, keep the stairs in better condition, and provide some shelter for them and people coming to their home.

Happy Canada Day from Awnings Unlimited

Patio cover awning with a mix of aluminum pans and acrylic panels
Canada Day has arrived once again and the weather was somewhat cooperative in the lower mainland of BC to allow for some enjoyable Canada Day festivities. 
Now that the kids are finished with school, we can look to enjoying our summer.  Those of us who have decks or patios will likely use them a lot over the next couple of months.  At the moment we are hoping the weather improves to give us less rain.  Either way, with the warmer weather, time can be spend outdoors without getting wet if you have a permanent patio cover or awning. 

Have a great Canada Day long weekend!
