Choosing the Perfect Color Awning for Your Deck or Patio

Sunshine, beautiful views, family time, and dinner on the grill. This has the makings of a perfect summer day! Enjoying your backyard space is restful and good for the soul. And with a SummerSpace® retractable awning, your time outside won’t get cut short by harsh sun rays or intense heat. Now you can spend all day enjoying your shaded oasis. The difficult part will be choosing a color from our many amazing options! With over 250 fabrics in a variety of colors and patterns, picking just one may be a challenge. So, here are some suggestions on how to choose the perfect color awning for your deck or patio.

Awning Location Can Impact Your Optimal Color Choice

Depending on the location of your deck or patio area, it could sway you to choose certain colors. For example, would you like to place your SummerShade awning in a particularly sunny spot? For areas that get lots of direct sunlight, you might want to consider a lighter shade such as Silver, Spa, or Latte. Lighter colors such as these are particularly great at resisting fading and will look vibrant even after ample time in the sun. Lighter colors will also do a great job reflecting heat, leaving your space shaded and cooler for summer enjoyment. 

Or, is your deck or patio near trees? If so, you might prefer a darker color such as Navy, Charcoal, or Forest. These darker shades are perfect for reducing any blemishes or stains caused by bird droppings, tree sap, or other falling debris. 

Consider How You’ll Use Your Awning

As you consider color options for your roll out awning, think about how you plan to use it. If you like to throw backyard parties for your friends and family, a fun colored awning would great a jovia flair! Some of our festive solid colors include Sunflower, Orange, and Shoreline. Additionally, our striped awnings are beautiful and equally eye-popping. 

Is a calm afternoon relaxing in your backyard with loved ones more your speed? No problem! For those that enjoy sitting and enjoying the views, you might want to consider our neutral colors. With our simple but stunning neutral colors, you can easily change your patio furniture or other outdoor features. Your awning will still match and give a cohesive look to your backyard space. Our outdoor living awnings come in many neutral colors such as Cappuccino, White, and Toffee.

Consider Personal Preference When Choosing Your Awning
