All About Window Awnings


Turn your home into the neighborhood favorite with an exterior makeover that maximizes curb appeal and energy efficiency. With window awnings featuring Sunbrella fabrics, it’s easy to add style and efficiencies to your home. Read on to discover how window awnings can take your exterior from ordinary to unforgettable.   

Dial Up the Curb Appeal 

Fabric window awnings are a great way to transform a home’s facade into a showstopper. Today’s awnings have come a long way from the styles of the past, offering a unique and modern shade solution that makes your home the envy of every other on the block.  

Whether you’re interested in timeless neutrals, classic stripes, vibrant hues, or unique patterns, Sunbrella has hundreds of styles to complement the architecture of your home. For a more unique look, choose tones that contrast with your home’s exterior. If you’re looking for a subtle enhancement, select colors that blend in with your house’s exterior, trim, or accents. Whatever you choose, rest assured that fade proof and UV-resistant Sunbrella fabrics will keep your color looking its best for years to come.  



Enhance Energy Efficiency 

 Besides beautifying your home, window awnings can significantly cut down on energy costs by blocking direct sunlight from entering a room. This helps keep your interiors cool (and keep your utility bill low). The best part? Unlike blinds or curtains, they block the sun — not your view.  

According to the DOE, window awnings can reduce solar heat gain in the summer by up to 65% on south-facing windows and 77% on west-facing windows — all the more reason to add window awnings to your home! 



Durability You Can Trust  

Since the 1960s, Sunbrella awning fabrics have combined excellent performance with unbeatable style. You can trust that our fabrics won’t fade or become damaged due to the sun’s harsh rays or normal wear, thanks to color and UV-stabilized pigments and best-in-class durability and color retention. 

Whether you’re adding a dash of contrast or an injection of color, fade proof Sunbrella fabrics will stand up to years in the sun. Looking to make a statement? Our large selection of color and pattern choices make it easy to extend your home’s curb appeal by complementing other shade elements, like your patio awning.
