How An Awning Can Transform Your Balcony

With summer now settling in, we all want to make the most of the good weather. Balconies are a wonderful addition to apartment living in the warmer months, but many apartment owners don’t make the most of these unique outdoor spaces. If you have a balcony but rarely use it due to it being too hot or too cold, too dark or too exposed, read on to find out how an awning could transform your unused outdoor space.*

Shade and Shelter

The most obvious benefit of having a retractable awning for your balcony is that it provides excellent shade from the sun and shelter from light rain and light wind. Easy to control via a hand held remote or an app on a smart device, our Markilux and Weinor awnings gently open or close to cover or reveal your balcony at the touch of a button. So, whether you want to enjoy the sun or create some shade, an awning makes your balcony a comfortable place to relax at all times.


Enjoy your balcony all day and right through the evening, even after nightfall, with an integrated awning light bar. The ultra efficient LED lights create a warm glow underneath the awning so you can enjoy spending time outdoors for longer. Plus, the Weinor and Markilux light bar designs are stylish and elegant for a neat and tidy finish and made from corrosion resistant materials for extra durability.

Balcony Awning Fitted in Winchester


All of our awnings can be fitted with an infrared heater that provides instant heat for you and your guests. So, even when the temperature drops, you can sit and enjoy your balcony and make the most of your outdoor space. Plus, our infrared outdoor heaters are modern, safe and super economical – they reach full power just seconds after being turned on and convert 90-95% of energy into heat.


If your balcony is overlooked by properties positioned above, an awning is a great way of creating a bit of extra privacy from prying eyes. Simply deploy the awning for some instant screening and enjoy relaxing on your balcony in complete seclusion.
