Explore our window awning styles to find the best one for your building and design.

Awnings can be a crucial part of creating and maintaining a beautiful and, more importantly, comfortable environment for your home. While many people first install awnings to cover their backyard patios or decks, awnings can also be essential for providing shade for your windows that receive the most light. Fortunately, there are several window awning styles you have to choose from so you can create your ideal shade situation and increase the beauty of your home. Awnings are meant to increase your enjoyment of your home, so read on now to learn more about the different types of awnings you can design with Carroll Architectural Shade. 

Retractable Awning Styles

Retractable awnings are a space-saving solution for all properties. The awning is designed to roll out when you need it and retract when you don’t require shade or when bad weather hits. You can install retractable window awnings that close with a manual or mechanical system and even install awnings that automatically close when high wind or rain triggers the sensors. These awnings are best for homeowners who want the option of letting in sunlight when they choose. 

Stationary Awnings

The most classic window awning styles are stationary, which stay up year-round and in all weather. These awnings protect your home interior from harsh sunlight that raises your indoor temperature, burdens your air conditioning, and creates a glare on your electronic devices. 

Custom Awnings for Unique Locations

If you want to design a unique awning for your home or have windows with unique designs, you can create a custom design with Carroll Architectural Shade designers. In addition to designing original retractable and stationary awnings, we are available to create custom designs that suit your existing home design and provide the coverage you desire. 

Retractable Screens

Retractable solar shades are, in a sense, another type of window awning style. These screens can cover any space that can have the vertical track installed. From that track, you roll the screen down to provide instant shade and protection from the harsh glare of the light and the accompanying UV rays that may damage your indoor floors, walls, and furniture. This combination of luxury and convenience is becoming increasingly popular for many homeowners.
