Now, for those of you who have been drooling over the many gazebos, pergolas, pavilions, sunrooms and pool houses that we’ve reviewed these past few weeks, but who don’t have the room for one, or even for those who love the idea of a getaway in a luxury Swiss chalet, but who don’t have the vacation time to spare, we have a great alternative for you today!

Yes, you can still turn your patio or yard into something special, using an awning, as these don’t take up much space at all.

If you enjoy eating outdoors, for example, but find it too hot in the direct sunlight, then the shade provided by an awning is just what you need – and you can still get the benefit of a gentle breeze cooling you down.

Retractable awnings also provide protection from the weather too, when you need it, and if you invest in the right type, then they will look elegant too, enhancing the appearance (and value) of your property.

If you already have patio doors or a French window, then the obvious place to install one would be right there, although another option would be outside the kitchen – then you can simply pass food and drinks through the window.

The awnings we’re looking at today are from the Sunsetter Pro Motorized Awning range, and the one shown above is the Burgundy Stripe 18ft Sunsetter Pro Motorized Awning.

The motor used in these awnings is the Somfy motor, which is regarded as the best in the industry. And the good thing is that this motor is hidden inside the awning roller, so it won’t appear unsightly.

The Sunsetter Pro Motorized Awnings are also remote-controlled, so you can operate them from anywhere.

These units can be installed on almost any surface, including brick, wood, aluminum, stucco, vinyl sidings, as well as on eaves and overhangs.

The dual-cable system used by these awnings maximises your use of space, and also avoids the need for ugly vertical supports, and they include a weatherbreaker vinyl front screen, which helps to block the sun and breeze, or light rain from blowing under your awning.

These awnings need a minimum of 7.5 feet vertical clearance, and installation is reckoned to take from two to three hours. You will, of course, need a grounded outlet within 12 feet of your awning, to power the motor.

And to provide peace of mind, the Sunsetter Pro range comes with an industry-leading five-year warranty.

So, let’s take a look at some of the other styles that are available:

    I have one in my appartment in Barcelona. These are indispensable in summer and the good thing is that if they have a nice colour they give the house inside a very nice ligth!

  3. These things do everything they say for a fraction of the priced of a real porch. Good stuff.

    Motorized awnings sound like an excellent approach for quality for those with limited space and perhaps funds!

    This is exactly what I want over our backdoor! It looks great and the installation looks to be pretty easy, good thing I have my husband and daughters’ boyfriends to install it. Great Post and I love your website.
