Carports have been used since the early 1900’s when people realised they needed to protect their new, fancy automobiles from the elements. Since then, carports have developed to become multi-functional structures that add value to your home.
Here are three additional ways to use carports and steel structures.
Create a shady place to entertain guests no matter the weather with a covered patio. Carports can be customised to match the overall aesthetic of your home. This way your newly covered patio can feel like an effortless extension of your home.
Recently taken to DIYing or another hands-on hobby? Give yourself a cool, sun and rain protected spot to work with a covered outdoor workshop. It will also come in handy when a project takes a bit longer than expected and you need a safe space to keep all your bits and bobs.
Protect your children from harmful UV rays with a covered play area. Hang swings or reading chairs from cross beams, build a sandpit, Hang a sheet for an outdoor movie night or house the jungle gym. The play area can easily be converted to become an age-appropriate space as your children grow.
Carports are versatile structures that can be used for more than protecting your car. With so many options when it comes to colour, size and style, adding a multifunctional carport to your home will instantly expand and optimise your outdoor space.
