As a homeowner, designing an outdoor space that is useable throughout the year can be a challenge depending on location. It is important to strike a balance of maintaining an open-air feel while being comfortable and protected from the elements.

Homeowners in Noblesville, Indiana knew that if they wanted to truly enjoy their lovely new backyard, they would have to set up an outdoor space to take advantage of Indiana’s pleasant months.

Rated 7.1 out of 10 on the annual Best Places Comfort Index, Noblesville’s high score indicates a comfortable year-round climate. With this in mind, the homeowners erected a large wooden pergola at the back with clear sightlines of the nearby pond.

Underneath are two chairs and a comfortable sofa positioned around a matching fire pit table, which provides cozy heat when the temperature drops. To prepare for the hot and rainy seasons, the homeowners reached out to ShadeFX for a versatile solution.

Working with our knowledgeable product specialists, a manual 12’x16’ retractable canopy was specified to fit the new structure. The homeowners desired a natural look and chose Sunbrella Cadet Grey for the canopy fabric.

“Thanks for your help and responsiveness. We like our cover and make use of it often. We also have two drop-down shades for the late afternoon before the sun drops below the tree line. This allows us to enjoy our evenings on the patio.”

– R. Brockman, Homeowner

With the addition of their retractable canopy, the homeowners are fully prepared to enjoy Indiana’s comfortable year-round climate. In the coolness of the day, they also have the option of retracting their shade to enjoy their new space alfresco style.
