How to Get Your Awning Ready for Warm Summer Evenings

We all know that awnings can provide many benefits to outdoor living during the day, but they can really enhance your outdoor space in the evening too. We all want to make the most of summertime and enjoy being outdoors as much as possible, and awnings can provide you with the perfect space in which to relax during warm summer evenings. Here are a few ways in which you can make sure you maximise its potential come nightfall…


Create a warm and inviting ambience with some atmospheric mood lighting. An integrated LED light bar can be fitted to the underside of your awning cassette to provide a lovely soft glow underneath the awning, allowing you and your guests to enjoy alfresco dining and sociable gatherings well into the night. The lights can also be used when the awning is closed and be dimmed to create the perfect ambience. Supplement awning lighting with garden lanterns and strings of fairy lights to really enhance the look.

Take the edge off chilly summer evenings with an infrared heater fitted to your awning. The Weinor Tempura outdoor patio heating system is very efficient and will provide full heat within a few seconds. It also turns 90-95% of the energy used into heat to make sure you stay comfortable, whatever the temperature is outside. So, sit back, relax and stay warm and cosy for many hours after sunset.


Keep away from prying eyes with a large patio awning. This is especially effective in overlooked gardens; sit out in your outdoor space come day or night, safe in the knowledge that you won’t be on full show to your neighbours. You could also invest in side screens for your awning to provide some extra privacy from adjoining gardens or balconies.

Now is the perfect time to get your awning accessories in place ready for the summer. Whether you have a garden, patio, balcony or roof terrace, make sure you can enjoy your awning during the long summer days, and evenings too.
