Why Door Canopies Are A Great Addition To Your Home

Written by Posted On Thursday, 12 September 2019 04:01

Door canopies are one of those home additions that you might not even notice or pay very much attention to. This is because they’re used so commonly due to their practicality and functionality.

They’re surprisingly versatile, and can even save you money on your energy bills, as well as improve the appearance of your home, add value, boost curb appeal, and provide you with much-needed shelter as you’re putting your keys in the door in inevitable rainy weather.

If you don’t yet have a canopy for the outside of your home and are now considering adding one to your home, then this helpful guide is for you. Find out exactly why door canopies are a great addition to your home in the four points to follow below:

Boost Curb Appeal

Styled well, and expertly fitted, a door canopy can drastically improve the appearance of the outside of your home. If selling your home in the future is on the cards, then you’re going to want to have the forethought to prepare it for re-sale, and adding curb appeal is going to help you tenfold in doing just this.

Most prospective buyers will make a snap judgment upon first seeing your house, so it’s got to be looking its very best and most presentable. First impressions really do matter, and if you’re stuck for ideas on how to raise the bar and invite visitors in, then install GRP door canopies, or at least speak to the professionals and discuss further why getting a door canopy is a great addition to your home.


With a door canopy, you needn’t worry about having to unlock and lock your front or back door as quickly as you can in fear of standing out in the rain, and getting soaked through before you’ve even got to the car, let alone to the office. Door canopies provide you with that much-needed added element of shelter so that you can take shelter in all weathers. They provide shade in the summer, and a small outside roof over your head in the colder months.

Adding Storage Space

Here’s probably the most fun and exciting part of installing a door canopy to your home: you have a place outside to store your outdoor shoes, plants and potted vegetables, umbrellas, and a doormat. Here you can also put some outdoor lighting and any other garden decoration that takes your fancy.

Save Energy

Although a canopy won’t go a long way in saving you money on your energy bills, every little helps, right? You can’t turn your nose up at savings, even if they are somewhat small. A door canopy can essentially shield your home from some draughts in the winter, while also doubling up to prevent some of the worst direct sunlight from hitting your front door windows. This then means that you should be able to keep your home a little cooler without the need for such constant and high air conditioning.
