Awning fabrics: Shades of design

Our awards / 9 Views

As for design, our fabrics come in a wide range of styles. Choose from our selection of solids: single colors make a strong style statement for lowkey awnings with lots of personality. In a more timeless style, our classic stripes feature two-colored lines of even size, often balanced with white, for anyone who wants to stand out from the crowd. “Fantasy” stripes come in a range of designs, from super simple to highly original and add energy and movement to outdoor spaces. A more complex production technique, Jacquard is used to create floral patterns, round shapes and curves in fabric. Jacquard is delicate with a distinctive aesthetic. Finally, “neoclassic” stripes have a sketched effect. Alternating bright colors and traditional stripes give way to blended and vibrant effects. The “neoclassic” range combines technical machine excellence with the sensitivity of the human hand.

An awning fabric to match your outdoor spaces

 Your choice of fabric will obviously depend on the raw materials used in your facade, the color of your wood trim, and the surrounding environment.

If you prefer to play it safe, coordinate your colors. Match your awning and facade by picking out similar but not identical colors. For tone-on-tone, replace your awning fabric with the same color as your wood trim – it’s an elegant solution, especially if you wish to tone down an already colorful facade. Want a more modern look? Try contrasts. A fabric color that complements your wood trim brings to life your exteriors while staying on tone. Finally, if you’re a color person, go for different shades of one color family. But always take a second look: some shade combinations can look gaudy. Brown, red and orange go well together if evenly balanced. If one color is too bright or slightly cooler than the others, it breaks the harmony.

Automation: awnings that think for themselves

Automation: awnings that think for themselves

Re-cover is a handy, easy and fast solution to bring your outdoor spaces into line with current trends - and your tastes. When your awning specialist pays you a visit, why not ask them to motorize your manual awning? Opening and closing your awning in a smooth, continuous motion protects the mechanism and ensures it lasts longer. Home automation solutions also exist to bring your awnings into the modern age. Somfy, for example, can fit rain and wind sensors that extend or retract your awning according to the weather. Now you don’t have to think about your awning at all - unless you’re relaxing underneath it.

Change everything by contacting your Dickson accredited awning specialist.
