Choosing the right Shade Solution for your car port
April 21st, 2012 · Published to Car Ports by nicole
Options abound with shade solution possibilities when you are thinking of a car port for your car. The application of shade sails, awnings or a canopy for carports is not only a more cost effective alternative, but also a design treasure trove. The design can range from classic to modern, minimalist to luxurious, and this is without much work – a design for carports using only canopies, awnings or shade sails begins only with a simple structure.
All you have to keep in mind are the support(s) for your car port shade solution, the colour and its lines or curves. With those three elements, you already have a car port that is pleasing to the eye, with or without your car. The support is necessary, but can also be decorative. The colour of the shade sail or awning, you might want to look into colour psychology for your design ideas. The lines or curves of the whole structure can enhance your car – a luxury for some, but when you have a classic car in your possession, it takes a whole new meaning.
In choosing the shade sail colour for your carport, you have to consider maintenance. While shade sails are built for all-weather conditions, they are not resistant to dirt – one will have to clean them once in a while, especially if for your design, you have chosen light colors for your shade sail. Darker colors have less need for cleaning because the color can hide some of the dirt – but still, you have to consider this in the shade sail carport design.
But still, imagine the possibilities if you are designing a car port for a classic car – all those possible curves and colours at your feet. Just remember the support, the colors and the lines and curves, and you are good to go in creating the perfect car port for your own set of wheels.
