Enjoy Outdoor Entertaining All Year Round

hil1(3)More and more people are taking up a European life-style by relaxing, eating and entertaining out of doors.

However, the British weather has not been encouraging our alfresco desires, with a heat-wave one day and pouring rain the next.

In spite of this, we are still devoted to spending more time entertaining friends and eating outside.

As a result of this, Hillary’s are benefiting from considerable growth in awning sales.

Awnings were originally used to stop the fading of soft furnishings in strong sunlight, but are now proving to be an invaluable way to protect us from the weather – be it showers of rain or the sun’s rays.

  • Although the conventional striped fabric awning is still most popular, modern fabrics and styles like linen are becoming fashionable, especially in the more traditional properties.
  • Hillarys awnings are available in a variety of over 60 durable and stylish fabrics.
  • They can be fully motorised or manually operated, with options for wind and sun sensors.
  • Supplied in many widths from 2.5 metres to 12 metres, plus free estimates and fitting.
  • Priced from £1,295 – manual and £1,395 – motorised.

So why not make the most of the lovely summer weather by having an enjoyable lunch on the patio with family and friends?

Your modern-day awning will keep the odd shower or strong sun at bay and food fresh and dry. It will also shelter soft furnishings from damage by powerful sunlight, as well as keeping the interior cool.

Awnings can also be useful in autumn and winter too. Food eaten outside seems to taste even better, so you could enjoy an occasional barbie in winter as well.
