If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that our homes are our sanctuaries. That’s why there’s no better time to enjoy your outdoor space with your very own patio house canopy.

Whether you’re after a garden canopy, a sun canopy or a canopy roof for the side of your house, this is the article for you. 

Read on to find out how to choose the best patio canopy for your home.

Choose the Right Type of Canopy 

Whether you need protection from the Ireland summer sun or are looking to extend your living area, there is a canopy out there for you. 

Let’s check out the different types of canopies and see what they can offer to your outdoor space.  

Garden Canopy 

A garden canopy provides practical outdoor living space and is a cheaper alternative to a house extension. It is the perfect canopy for the side of the house. Enjoy your morning cup of tea in outdoor comfort. 

Sun Canopy 

Sun canopies provide an overhead shade canopy to protect you from the sun. It works very similarly to a sunshade canopy in that they both provide instant shade and protect you from harmful UV rays. 

House Canopy 

House canopies, such as a window canopy, are attached to your home and have a number of benefits. These include the ability to block rain, reduce cooling costs, protect window plants and improve house aesthetics.  

Consider Your Canopy’s Purpose 

One of the best ways to make a decision is to decide why you need a canopy in the first place. Ask the following questions: 

  • Do you need protection from the sun?
  • Do you want to extend your living space into the garden?
  • Do you want it freestanding or attached to your home?
  • Do you want it to be retractable? 

With a retractable sunshade canopy, you can decide when to let the sunshine into your outdoor space. 

You should also consider what size you’re after and what design will best complement your house exterior. 

Choose Your Canopy Roof Material 

Your canopy’s durability will largely depend on your choice of material. Vinyl, wood, and aluminium are just some of the popular materials available. 

When choosing your canopy roof material, keep in mind: 

  • Its ability to withstand extreme weather conditions 
  • Its practical function 
  • Its overall design and whether it suits your tastes  

Again, you want to make sure your patio canopy aligns with your home design but it also must meet your needs in terms of functionality.

It’s time to extend your home into the garden.
