How to choose the right shade product for your needs

At Colourful Canvas we can help you decide on the right shade solution for your needs. Whether you want to shade an exposed window or an outdoor entertaining area, Colourful Canvas will show you a range of shade and shelter systems and a wide choice of materials so suit your needs.

Our wide range of blinds can also be tailor-made to enclose an outdoor entertaining area and shelter it from wind or rain so you can use it all year round. So wth such a wide choice of systems and materials available, each designed to do a similar job, you need to weigh up their combined benefits to ensure that the final solution is ideally suited to the task and your lifestyle.

We can supply anything from a simple window awning through to a wide range of patio, café, alfresco or veranda blinds and retractable folding arm awnings all of which can be adjusted manually or electronically using a remote control. We can even install more sophisticated motorised retractable awnings with sun and wind sensors to make them open and close automatically to suit the prevailing weather conditions.

This flexibility gives you complete control over the amount of shade or shelter you want at different times of the day or year. If for example, you might want to shade a north facing courtyard entirely to keep it cool in summer, while in winter you may prefer to bask in the warm sunshine on cooler days. In this case the solution could be a retractable folding arm awning.

Alternatively, if you have a door or window that is constantly exposed to the heat generated by direct sunlight making it hard to keep a particular room cool, a retractable window blind or awning might be the best solution.

With over 50 years experience in the shade business, Colourful Canvas has the knowledge to help you decide on the right shade or shelter solution for your particular circumstances.
