Sunroofs for summer houses play an important role in your outdoor recreation. On hot summer days, keeping the outdoors cool can be a challenge. Your backyard may come equipped with a patio, pool or beautiful garden, but without good shade it can be quite uncomfortable to stay in on the hottest days.
If you are looking for a temporary solution for shading a specific area of your garden, take a look at some DIY dome ideas that you can put together quickly.
Creative sun sails
You may have everything you need to install an awning. Just look around the house. What you really need is a fairly large piece of fabric, a few sticks or pillars, something to use as a base, a few tools, and additional materials like cord or rope.
Here is another interesting project that includes tubes for hanging reeds or sheets as a parasol.
Do you have large plastic containers? Use them repeatedly to create a nice little shaded area in your garden as you see it.
Some of the above ideas are great, but they don’t involve strong wind and rain. If you want, you can reinforce the shed by driving sticks and posts into the ground and tying everything to the wall or building with rope.
The following projects are particularly suitable for a pool. Check out two ideas from Red Gingham and Home Talk, they use pots to hold umbrellas.
Pots are great for storing large umbrellas, but barrels are also a solution worth considering. They are large, durable and uncomplicated, making them a perfect match for umbrellas. This example from the French Inspired Room has the right idea, and you can take it a step further by incorporating it into your entertainment space – like this one from Hire Society and one from Encore Events Rentals.
The comfort of shade sails
Awnings are a great solution. You can order these sails from Amazon or buy them at a hardware store. An example from The Garden Glove shows how you can replace a patio umbrella with an awning.
