How To Choose Your Awning Color

February 2023

Choosing the right awning color for your home can be a daunting task. There are so many options available, and it can be difficult to make a decision that will both look good and fit with the existing style of your property. Fortunately, there are some key things to consider when choosing awning colors that can help you make the best decision for your space.

The first thing you should do is consider the existing colors of your building’s exterior. Choose an awning color that either complements or contrasts the existing color palette. For example, if your home’s exterior is a pale yellow, you might want to look at a bold navy or black awning to create a noticeable contrast. If you home is white with black accents, a black or gray awning could give the building a more unified look. Depending on the look you’re going for, you may also opt for a colored awning if you want to draw attention to the structure.

It’s also important to consider the environment of your space. If your building is located in a tropical, beach-like setting, you might want to consider vibrant colors like blues and yellows. If your property is surrounded by trees, then a calmer color palette of greens, browns, and blues could better fit in with the surroundings. This is a great way to ensure that your awning stands out without feeling out of place.

There are some great awning visualizer tools that are easy to use that let you see how a particular pattern or solid color will look on your own home. We have a link to the Sunbrella Shade Studio awning visualizer on the Massachusetts Awning website. It’s super easy to use; just take a picture of your home or select from a picture of a home that looks like yours, select a frame color and you can try out all the fabrics in the Sunbrella collection. Sunbrella also has a fabulous Fabric Finder Tool that allows you to easily narrow your choices of Sunbrella® patterns based on your color and pattern preferences. Tempotest also has a visualizer tool so you can check out their fabrics as well.

Finally take a look at awning examples from other buildings. You can find plenty of pictures online to give you inspiration for choosing the perfect awning color for your property. Look for awnings that you like and that are similar to your own property to get a better idea of which colors may work best in your context.

By considering all the factors mentioned, you’re sure to find an awning color that works perfectly for your space. Take the time to research different options, and you’ll soon have an awning that both looks good and fits in with the style of your property.
