Do Awnings Increase Home Value?

Most people believe that the only way to increase the value of their home before placing it on the market is through expensive and dramatic renovations. Well, think again! In addition to creating more space inside and outside, a retractable awning adds curb appeal which can increase your home’s value even more, who wouldn’t want that?

With the added bonus that most of our outdoor living products do not require planning permission, you can really save yourself thousands of pounds whilst knowing your awnings increase home value.

Awnings Improve Your Curb Appeal  

Buyers are frequently looking for homes that have an attractive exterior. Apart from simply adding additional “living space,” an awning gives your garden a competitive advantage over other homes. If you think you may be selling your home soon – especially if you live in a particularly competitive area on the housing market – you may wish to invest in as many improvements as you can.

There are many things you can do to level up your home’s appearance. For instance, nice landscaping, a well-kept green lawn, and a well-maintained roof, trim, and gutters, are just a few.

Adding a made-to-measure awning adds an entirely unique element to your property, transforming your patio area into a distinguished, modern, and attractive setting that can be used at any time of year.

Besides improving the appearance, a large awning can actually add to your home’s usable outdoor space, and that can add value. They also cost a lot less than building a porch or deck, and in many cases are much more attractive and desirable.

How Do Awnings Increase Home Value?  

An awning is a great way to enhance both the look and functionality of your home by transforming an outdoor space into an area that can be enjoyed all year round. Not only are they beautiful to look at, but they have behind-the-scenes benefits, including saving money on energy (bet you didn’t know that!) and protecting your home from the weather.

There is more than one way to look at value. Ignore money, simple pounds, and pence, and think instead about value in terms of enjoyment, satisfaction, and happiness. Not to mention your neighbours and friends being in awe of your spectacular-looking garden!

Awnings Increase Usable Garden Space 

An awning can be used to essentially enclose part of the garden by making more of your home usable. Under an awning, you can place a deck, tables, chairs, and an entire patio area if you desire! Otherwise, this space might go unused. If you ever decide to sell your home, then having functional outdoor space (such as a BBQ area) is essential.

With an awning you can be free to spread out a bit more. They aren’t just a party piece; they are a practical and stylish way of improving the functionality of your garden for use no matter the weather.

Awnings provide effective shade in the peak of summer and keep the rain at bay when the heavens open, so you can host garden parties or enjoy relaxing outdoor coffee breaks whenever you like. No more dashing about to collect chairs in from the rain.

A retractable awning not only easily installs against your home to more space inside, but it also provides an accessible shaded outdoor living space in which you can relax.  

Installing a new retractable awning will automatically increase the value of your home since it creates a space that did not previously exist. Magic!

Pride of ownership 

The addition of awnings on your house shows that you are a homeowner who cares about your property.

Installing awnings indicates to potential buyers that you likely maintain other aspects of your home well, such as the heating, wiring, and plumbing. Buyers are more likely to purchase a house that has been maintained than a rundown house.

Can Awnings Bring Down Electricity Bills in the UK? 

Although awnings most certainly can help to keep a house cool, the energy savings can only be significant enough to be considered for houses located in sunnier parts of the world. So, depending on where you live in the UK, you may be able to limit summer energy consumption.

Even though the sight of any sunlight in the UK is like gold dust, retractable awnings are still a SUPER popular choice. Why? It’s in the name. RETRACTABLE awnings are not permanently out, you have the option to retract them and receive a few extra hours of sunlight during the colder months when you can. Bonus points for the family pet who will love basking in that nice sunny spot.
