Elevate Your Outdoor Oasis: Arched Awning & Privacy Outdoor Screens

We installed our arched Awnings in a chic powder-coated crème finish over their deck and drop down screens adorned in a stylish taupe mesh to match the natural colours of their house.

Creating an elevated outdoor oasis with arched awnings and privacy outdoor screens is a fantastic way to elevate your backyard into a prime entertaining area. We helped this kiwi home owner achieve their vision. Here’s a closer look at the key elements involved:

  1. Arched Awnings: They chose an arched awning in a chic powder-coated crème finish. Awnings provide shade and protection from the elements, making the area comfortable for various outdoor activities.

  1. Privacy Outdoor Screens: To enhance the overall appeal of the outdoor space and create a more private atmosphere, the use of drop-down screens is an excellent choice. We recommended a taupe mesh for the screens as it complements the natural colours of the house, creating a seamless and visually appealing integration with the surroundings. These screens can be raised or lowered as needed to control privacy and airflow.

  1. Multifunctional Outdoor Space: The concept of modern outdoor spaces has evolved from simple patios to multifunctional areas. These spaces are designed not just for relaxation but also for entertainment and dining. This transformation turns the outdoor area into an extension of your home, making it an essential part of your lifestyle.


By incorporating arched awnings and privacy outdoor screens, you can create a versatile and aesthetically pleasing outdoor oasis that can be enjoyed in various ways throughout the year. It’s an investment that not only enhances the beauty of your property but also adds functionality to your outdoor living space.
