Awnings and Outdoor Blinds

Amaru offers an extensive range of custom window awnings and outdoor blinds made in Melbourne. Our modern awnings can increase your home's value by enhancing architecture or adding alfresco living space with an outdoor patio awning. Investing in awnings also cuts living costs by shading windows from direct sunlight and blocking damaging UV rays, extending the life of your drapes, upholstery & flooring and improving home energy efficiency.

Before air conditioning, Australian households relied heavily on their standard window awning to stay cool during summer. Traditional awnings still play an essential function in modern homes by reducing heating and cooling costs and cutting UV glare and fading in your home.

FAQ’s about Awnings & Outdoor Blinds

Expand all
What are window awnings?

Awnings are outdoor window coverings that help to keep the heat and light from entering your home or outdoor space.

What are awnings used for?

In Australia, home awnings serve several purposes. Primarily awnings are used for increasing privacy, preventing UV damage and shading your home from heating up under our scorching summer sun. Patio blinds are a form of awning used to enclose outdoor areas providing all-weather protection for extra functional living space. Window awnings also add character and improve the curb appeal of a house.

How is a canopy different to an awning?

A canopy or Dutch hood is small fixed awning positioned above windows and doors. Unlike other awning styles they are generally not opened and closed but remain permanently in place once installed.

What is the best outdoor blind for my home?

Each outdoor blind has unique features and benefits and will suit particular needs, functionality requirements and styles of home. Amaru’s trained specialists can help you work out which awning is right for your situation and budget.

Are outdoor awnings expensive?

Amaru awnings are custom-made to order; the per awning cost will depend on the size of the window you are covering, the materials of construction, and the awning style you choose. Awnings offer an excellent return on investment. You may be surprised how cheap awnings are when compared to the value they add to your home and the money they save on home heating and cooling. We also offer affordable awning motorisation for most of the styles in our range.

Should I motorise my awnings?

While some may consider motorised awnings an extravagant luxury, they are actually a very affordable and practical upgrade. Having motorising outdoor blinds is a clever solution for hard to access and multi-storey windows. Awning motorisation also lets you quickly batten down the hatches when the weather suddenly turns from the comfort of indoors, rather than trying to wind down blinds in the wind and rain.
