Stay cool with attractive outdoor canopies
It can be hard to appreciate your yard or garden on days when the sun is beating down. Canopies provide shady spaces where you can set up a picnic table or some lawn chairs and enjoy the outdoors without getting overheated. These and other outdoor solutions are designed to be attractive as well as useful. Sears stocks many different styles to complement any home.
Gazebos are a stylish way to add both shade and seating to your yard. Some are simple fabric structures with metal frames that can be set up quickly for barbecues and parties. Others are designed to be permanent fixtures of your yard or garden. These are often made of wood and may include built-in benches. Most models, however, are made without seating so that you can choose your own lawn furniture arrangement. Temporary gazebos are great for travel as they can be packed in a trunk or cargo compartment and transported to beaches, campsites and other vacation destinations. Set them up to shade your picnic table or beach chairs from the direct heat of the sun so that you can enjoy your day without worrying about overheating or getting sunburnt. Back home, use your gazebo to shelter your grill, hot tub or outdoor eating area from the weather.
If you need to cover a smaller space, try one of the many styles of awnings. Designed to stretch over windows, front steps or stoops, these handy outdoor shades make attractive accents for both homes and businesses. Choose a solid-color awning with classic scalloped edges to create a shady space for your patio furniture. Stripes catch the eye, greeting visitors or customers with a cheery style. Brands such as Sunsational and BeautyMark offer both stationary and retractable awnings depending on your needs. Choosing this type of outdoor shade also keeps precipitation at bay so that you'll never be stuck standing in the rain, looking for your keys.
Your yard isn't the only place that's affected by radiant heat. Outdoor shutters help keep the interior of your home cool in hot weather, cutting down on electricity usage from air conditioners and fans. Solid shutters keep out the most light while louvered shutters allow you to adjust the brightness of a room. Exterior shutters also add a touch of charm to outdoor decor. Choose attractive hinges and mounting hardware to enhance the appearance of your home.
Don't let the hot weather keep you from enjoying your yard. With canopies, gazebos and other temporary outdoor structures, you can get out in the sun without feeling like you're going to melt. Shop Sears and stay cool in the heat with a variety of outbuildings and accessories.
