Awnings and pergolas for terraces
And, because of this, the need arises to respond to one of the climate problems most integrated in our culture: How do we protect ourselves from strong solar radiation during the hottest months of the year?
At present, we can find different ways to solve such a basic climate problem. In fact, awnings and pergolas for terraces have become a widely integrated solution in our culture since ancient times.
Hiding terraces ideas
There are endless awnings and pergolas for terraces. Different systems or concealment projects, which try to solve overexposure to UV rays during the summer stage. Likewise, in our interior design studio we work with countless awnings, pergolas or parasols. But also with elements such as blinds, louvered balcony windows and both interior and exterior curtains.
Thanks to this rich range of possibilities, Molins Design has been able to generate outdoor spaces of a domestic nature of extremely interesting value.
Therefore, today there is no customer who refuses to install awnings and tents for terraces. In fact, among his wishes for reform already comes into play being able to enjoy long family gatherings in the open air.
Next, we will take advantage of today’s article to explain which awnings and pergolas for outdoor terraces are better. Which one should you choose, what material it should be and in what space or place it will best combine with the rest of the architectural elements of your home. Are you interested? Read on and discover everything you need to do to create a perfect shaded area on your terrace or outdoor garden.
1. Awnings and bioclimatic pergolas
Terrace awnings and pergolas can be installed both on the horizontal surfaces of any building, as well as on the vertical surfaces of any façade. When we talk about horizontal architecture, this type of roof is presented as awnings, pergolas or parasols. However, when we highlight vertical surfaces, the ideal thing is to think about the installation of all kinds of blinds, louvered balcony windows and curtains both indoors and outdoors.
For example, the solutions proposed by the Kettal brand, with its modular roof structures or state-of-the-art bioclimatic pergolas, are a very good option. In fact, these fully automated opening elements through pivoting aluminum slats become a suitable solution for creating any shaded area.
In addition, its manufacturing material protects us from UV rays, but it also works as a terrace umbrella suitable to protect us from the rain. As a result, you get an awning made to measure that adapts, whimsically, to each of the moments of the day.
2. Garden umbrellas and other garden curtains
At Molins Design we work to improve the outdoor spaces and terraces of any home. Therefore, we have pergolas, umbrellas, parasols and even awnings and tents for any outdoor space.
Thus, there are many projects for pergolas and porches that we have developed. All of them, works that have served to improve the family encounters of our clients in outdoor spaces.
3. Porches or cover for terraces
Another of the most clever and intelligent proposal is the creation of terrace porches. This space ends up becoming the proposal that offers the most benefits. In addition, and if its construction is accompanied by outdoor furniture with a contemporary and sophisticated aesthetic, the deck or porch will go beyond mere functionality.
The idea of creating a pavilion as a reference for minimal architecture always rides on the dichotomy between interior and exterior space. This is so due to the creation of different barriers that are not very concise and defined. But, in turn, it is of great interest to the user. In fact, all clients who opt for this option see how the transformed area becomes an experiential space.
Which system to choose? The most recommended manufacturing materials
The different awnings and pergolas for terraces become structures designed for outdoor use. In this way, they are the ideal elements to be able to enjoy our terrace or garden at any time of the year and at any time of the day.
These exterior concealment and shading accessories can be built on the basis of different materials, although the most popular are aluminum pergolas and classic wooden ones. Their integration with the environment is total, and they can also become an ideal automation and home automation device for your home.
