Awnings shield your home from the harsh Australian sun by the very nature of their design. However, the best awnings balance aesthetic and function in equal measure.
Increase your comfort factor inside
Elegantly woven with hard-wearing material, custom awnings can boost liveability by shielding your home from heat, glare and UV rays.
There are many types of awnings, but we’ll focus on Drop Down and Folding Arm awnings today. Advancements in their design and technology mean drop-down awnings have never been more popular, due in part to their ability to reduce heat intake up to 95%. Our straight drop awnings are also made locally here in Melbourne and are accompanied by a 5-year product and installation warranty.
Complement your style outside
Folding arm awnings have been a fixture of home facades for decades – a testament to their timeless style and quality.
Ideal for external entertaining, they provide excellent UV protection during alfresco meals and leisurely summer lounging. Total control of their design means you can select ideal profiles, colours and materials, ensuring all awnings can seamlessly reflect your vision.
SHADES can custom create the perfect folding arm or drop-down awnings for your home using an extensive range of deluxe fabrics from the finest Australian and international fabric houses, ensuring optimal quality and style. If you’re ready to prepare your home for summer, get in touch for a quote.
