Outdoor Living

Maximizing Your Space at the Cottage

The cottage often offers a smaller living space than your home and yet it likely hosts a larger group of people over the summer months! Improving your outdoor living space is a great way to expand without increasing the square footage of your  cottage!

Let Your Personality Shine: With over 40 designer fabric options to choose from, ShadeTree® Retractable Canopy Systems can be customized to suit your design esthetic! We love the bold pop of color the canopy brings to this patio. Repeating the color in your accessories and even in the plants, creates a designer look with ease. 

HAVE IT YOUR WAY: One of the key advantages of a retractable canopy is flexibility! In almost all cases, you’ll find that your patio or deck offers beautiful sunlight for part of the day and harsh heat at other times. A retractable canopy lets you cover and uncover your outdoor living space with ease, depending on what best suits the current weather!

A ROOM WITH A VIEW: At the cottage, the dock is often a popular spot to gather and enjoy the summer hours. Of course, on particularly hot days, this space can become almost unbearable unless you are in the water. And then there is also the worry about sun burns and UV ray damage!

The addition of a pergola and canopy turns your dock into an outdoor room instantly. Now you have a pleasant space to sit and visit right at the water’s edge.  In addition to blocking the harsh sunlight, a canopy also helps protect you and your guests from damaging UV rays while still enjoying the benefits of being outdoors!

ADD OR IMPROVE: A retractable canopy system can be customized to suit your unique situation. If you already have a pergola or outdoor room in place but it doesn’t provide the shade you were hoping for, adding a retractable canopy system is the perfect solution.

However, if you simply have an empty deck or balcony space, or no outdoor living space at all, ShadeTree® offers several options to create that space for you.

These low-maintenance systems, made from aluminum or vinyl, include options that can be freestanding or attached to your existing home, allowing you to create an outdoor room anywhere you wish, and one that will stay beautiful for years to come!!
