August 30th, 2017 · Published to Awnings, Domestic by Steve Lewis

There are several ways to add value to your home. However, nothing is as simple or as cost effective as installing Australian awnings to a home. Awnings are a highly functional shade solution that increases a home’s visual appeal. They provide shade for patios, verandas or over windows and doors, which in turn, reduces the internal temperature of a home.

If you’re preparing to sell your home and want a high sale price for a low outlay, then awnings are a great investment. And I’m not just saying this simply because I manufacture awnings, it’s a proven fact!

Continue reading this post to discover how Australian awnings can increase the value of your property significantly. Hopefully, when you’re done reading, you’ll consider investing in one as well!

1. Better curb appeal

Installing an awning is a very effective way of improving the curb appeal of your home. Awnings are one the first things people will notice when looking at your property. This gives you a great chance to add personality and style to your home. And they won’t just add beauty to your home, they’ll also add equity and value to your home.

Modern Australian awnings, such as those we manufacture at Global Shade, are available in a range of attractive designs and colours. They can even be custom designed to meet your specific requirements. By adding awnings to your home, you’ll raise your property value significantly.

2. High functionality

Apart from aesthetics, awnings are also highly functional and can be applied to various applications. Most commonly, they are used to expand or create an outdoor living space. By simply adding an awning over a patio or veranda, you’ll create a shaded outdoor space that will be very attractive to buyers.

Also, retractable Australian awnings, offer many other benefits. They allow you to block the sun while keeping your view and you can also extend/retract shade depending on your needs. High quality awnings also allow you to control room brightness and they will protect your indoor furnishings as well. Considering just how practical awnings are, they will definitely add value to your property, whichever way you choose to use them.

3. Lower utility bills

Finally, awnings can also reduce your utility bills to a significant extent. Windows are the biggest source of energy loss in every household. By blocking out the sun during summer and letting the sun in during winter, you can reduce your cooling/heating bills dramatically.

To reduce utility bills, your awning must be made of a high-grade fabric, such as what we offer here at Global Shade. Our shade fabrics are capable of blocking out up to 99% of the sun’s UVR, making for excellent shade protection. Moreover, our fabrics are breathable and they reduce air temperature to a good extent. The fact that awnings will reduce utility bills will be realised by potential buyers and it will increase your property value by some amount.


If you’re looking for easy and effective way to increase your property value, consider installing Australian awnings. Quality awnings will increase your curb appeal, add functionality to your home and reduce utility bills. By simply installing an awning in your home, your property price will appreciate by a good extent.
