Awnings for Your Home


Shades of Comfort
Experience the joys of outdoor living, all year round

If ever there was time that we have come to really value our homes outside space, then this is it. The challenge of course with the UK is that the weather can all too often, make this space un-usable, whether that be from those all too infrequent days when it is too hot, to the far more common days when we have to retreat indoors because it is raining. Here at Shades of Comfort we have the answer, with our extensive range of awnings for your home.

Whether you are dining alfresco, entertaining friends or simply spending quality time with your family in the fresh air, our products will allow you more time to be spent outdoors during the day and night.

Wouldn’t you like to be able to enjoy your outside space for much more of the year?

Cassette Awnings

Cassette Awnings are an enclosed awning where the roller, fabric cover and arms are completely protected and stored in a closed cassette when retracted. Fully cassetted awnings are a popular choice for the protection they provide, prolonging the life and the look of all the elements. Cassette Awnings can be manual or motorised to suit any building type.

Dutch Awnings

Dutch Awnings are so called, because they first became popular in Holland. All of Shades of Comfort Dutch Awnings or Dutch Canopies are made to measure and manufactured to your requirements. They are ideal for where a heavier awning is not practical or where you are looking to achieve a traditional look and feel. A Dutch Awning can be fixed or retractable. Where they are retractable, they can come either with a pull cord, crank or a remote controlled electric motor.

  • Helps keep the inside of your property cooler as it prevents sun from shining directly on windows or patio doors.
  • Extends the amount of the year in which you can enjoy your outside space. They are low maintenance, easy to keep clean and easy to use.
  • Awnings can also help protect your external furniture and your internal furniture and carpets from bleaching.
