Bring the Indoors Out with These Covered Deck Ideas

With the warm weather finally upon us, it’s time to start thinking about how to make the most of our outdoor spaces. With a little bit of planning, you can turn your deck into a true extension of your home, a place where you can enjoy the outdoors without sacrificing comfort or style.

By adding a roof, walls, or both, you can create an inviting space that can be used year-round, no matter what the weather is like. Not sure where to start? Check out these covered deck ideas for inspiration.

1. Wall Mounted Patio cover

A patio cover is a great way to extend your living space and enjoy the outdoors. It can provide protection from the sun and rain, and can also create a private space for entertaining or relaxing. There are a variety of patio cover materials and styles to choose from. We use carbonate panels and aluminium frames for our patio covers.

The aluminium frames are much more durable than wooden frames and they won’t rot or warp over time. The carbonate panels provide excellent insulation against the heat and cold, meaning that your patio will be comfortable to use all year round. 

The overall look of the patio cover is very sleek and modern, which ties in nicely with the contemporary design of most homes these days.

2. Aluminium Louvred pergola

A pergola is a garden or backyard structure with an open framework of rafters or beams. They’re often used to provide shade and create an inviting space for outdoor relaxation. Pergolas can be freestanding or attached to your home, depending on the design.

While a traditional pergola might be made from wood or iron, our aluminium louvred pergola is a more durable and weather-resistant option. The louvred roof can be opened and closed to control the amount of sun and breeze, making it a great choice for any season. Plus, the easy-to-use hand-crank lever makes it a breeze to adjust the louvres to the perfect angle.

So if you’re looking for a classic garden structure with a modern twist, our aluminium louvred pergola is the perfect choice.

3. Retractable Awnings

Retractable awnings attach to a wall and extend outwards to provide shade and shelter for your patio, deck, or pool area. 

Reasons for choosing awning as deck cover:

  1. The awning is fixed to a wall, so there are no support posts in the way. This means you can use every square inch of your deck or patio, without any obstacles.
  2. The smooth-gliding folding arm extension is easy to control with the manual hand crank. You can decide how much shade you need, and adjust it as the sun moves throughout the day.
  3. Our awning is made with a sturdy white powder-coated aluminum frame and an acrylic solution-dyed fabric. This combination is water resistant, anti-UV, and rust resistant, making it perfect for outdoor use.
  4. The modern design and colors of our awning will elevate any outdoor space. Whether you're looking to create a relaxing lounge area or an intimate dining space, our awning can help you achieve it.

Add one to your deck or patio today and enjoy an extendable outdoor living space that's sheltered from the sun and rain.
