Because of our current pandemic situation, the majority of us are spending more time at home than ever. Luckily, warmer days are just around the corner – so for those of us with backyards, some of our time can soon be spent outside. Here are some of the best reasons why now is the perfect time to invest in a patio cover or awning.
Working from Home While Outside
During COVID-19, many Burlington, Ontario residents are now working remotely from their own homes. In some cases, residents have to make due working in non-office like settings – such as around the kitchen table or in a dark, damp basement corner. How nice would it be to be able to move the office outside, instead?
As long as you have a laptop, you can easily set up a temporary workspace outside. Without a proper covering, however, you are leaving yourself unprotected from the sun’s harmful rays or light rain. Plus, you may find working outside difficult due to the glare created between the sun and your laptop. With a patio cover or awning, those problems disappear – leaving you with an opportunity to enjoy your new work setting at the same time as you enjoy nature!
Keeping Children Entertained
With the closure of schools, playgrounds, trails, and play centres, keeping your kids entertained while inside at home can be a challenge. Spring presents the solution: being able to play outside for hours!
Patio covers and awnings are a great way to stay protected while playing with your kids outdoors. Use an outdoor rug underneath the covering to create a space that young children can safely crawl around or play with small toys. Even during light rain, an awning can provide hours of playtime outside.
An added bonus? Since patio furniture remains protected from the weather elements, its lifetime is also extended.
Getting Fresh Air
During a pandemic, it can be easy to go into hibernation mode and stay inside your home.
As difficult as it may be some days, you and your family members should spend some time outside every day. Spending time outdoors provides your body with a natural source of vitamin D from the sun. Known for improving resistance against certain diseases and facilitating normal growth and development of bones and teeth, vitamin D is an important part of one’s overall well-being.
A patio cover or awning can shield you and your family from potential sun damage, allowing the benefits of vitamin D to be received safely.
