Are you already clear that you want to install an awning on the terrace of your house? Then the time has come to start making decisions regarding its functionality and appearance!

Choosing the color of your awning is one of the most important choices you will make, as this should not only depend on your personal tastes, but certain functional aspects that you will discover below.

Firstly, if you live in a community of owners, you should follow the aesthetic patterns of the other houses, in case they have awning on your terrace. If, on the other hand, they don't have it, the board of your community of neighbors must approve the awning that you want to install in your house. Therefore, our advice is to choose a functional as well as aesthetic awning. This will avoid problems with the rest of the neighbors.

Is this not your case? Is the aesthetics of the facade of your home only up to you? We give you the same advice as before! The awning of your terrace doesn't have to depend only on the aesthetics that you want your home to have, but must meet a series of functional patterns that will guarantee the comfort and durability of this.

Are you going to use the awning to protect you from the sun in the months of sun and heat? A very important aspect that you must take into account in these times is the penetration of the UVA rays. You should know that the clearer colors of the canvas, the more permeable than dark.

Therefore, it's not always advisable to follow the latest aesthetic trends, but think about the utility of your shadow system.

Another aspect to keep in mind is the ambient that you want to give your terrace. Do you know what warm colors and cool colors are? Those who will create these feelings in your home! That is, if you choose cool colors, such as bluish tones, you will create a cooler atmosphere, while, if you settle for the colors more yellow, you can create a warm and cozy.
