Choosing the right material

Since canopies are used all over the world, you will find them in a variety of materials and design. What material you choose depends heavily on the climate that you experience in general and how much you want to spend. Here are a few choices:

  • Iron: This is the most affordable option for many people. They are durable, but not if you have heavy rain over the years
  • Polycarbonate: These are very light for your canopy and you can choose your own design and colors. Also fairly affordable, they might or might not suit your tastes
  • Stainless steel: An every durable material and provides a strong alternative for your canopy. They provide a sound structure and will last for many years
  • Wood: Depending on the type of wood, they can be either strong and heavy, or light and weaker. They are classically beautiful and give you more freedom with design
  • Glass: This is an ultra-modern choice that is at once aesthetically beautiful and extremely strong and durable.

Flat vs. curved

This is a classic debate among home owners, but the fact is that there are pros and cons to both curved and flat canopies on your garden or terrace. A curved Varikatus:

  • Can be aesthetically pleasing
  • Or can look very traditional and conservative to modern design minds
  • Is more suited to places where there is heavy rain
  • Looks especially beautiful with wooden material because of the design possibilities
  • Is easier to build and repair
  • Is quite affordable

A flat canopy:

  • Works well for relatively smaller or even medium sized places
  • Is easier to find with glass and metal finishes
  • Looks very futuristic, especially if you go for glass aluminum
  • May look bland if you choose a wooden structure

Whether you want a curved or a flat canopy is really up to your personal tastes. There is no one objectively better choice. More and more people today however are choosing flat canopies as it can more easily cover larger areas. Modern designs also make them more attractive to curved canopies.

Which one looks best

As you can see, different materials lend themselves to different types of canopies. Decide the material or the design first. Other decisions will follow your initial choice. For instance, if you have a modern condo, then a flat glass canopy looks undeniably good.

Conclusion: Homeowners are spoilt for choices when it comes to finding a canopy for a new patio or for remodeling an existing one. You might want to consult a professional consultant to make your choice. With the right advice, you can give your home a more beautiful look and wow your guests.
