Traditional Window Awnings help keep the harsh Australian sun from heating your home and fading your furnishings. These attractive and functional external window shades are available in a variety of materials designed to improve your home's energy efficiency and curb appeal. Whether you want modern or traditional looking standard awnings, Amaru has got your windows covered.
Amaru custom-make our standard window awnings in our Melbourne workshop using a variety of quality outdoor shade materials. Our standard awning team will ensure you achieve the look, level of light control, privacy and durability you desire for your home or business.
In the past, standard awning fashion tended toward wide striped fabrics with scalloped edge trim; however, the trend is toward simple plain single colour awnings in modern homes. Traditional striped awnings can instantly add a touch of retro flair to your home, while neat and stylish neutral coloured awnings are perfect for contemporary facades.
Our custom standard awnings can be operated using a number of opening combinations:
Standard awnings can be used on pretty much any exterior window of the home and are particularly useful for protecting and shading windows exposed to full sun or a lack of privacy. If you have a double-storey home, motorised fixed guide awnings are the perfect solution for shading those hard-to-reach windows. Modern residential window awnings are a simple and affordable way to increase your home's energy efficiency and curb appeal. Commercial standard awnings can provide additional sign frontage; however, be aware that there may be restrictions on coverings protruding over public footpaths.
To ensure the best custom window awnings in Melbourne are a perfect complement for your home, Amaru offers an extensive range of colours across our awning shade fabric options. From neutrals through to bold colours and designer patterns. Need help deciding on the perfect shade for your outdoor window shades? Our professional home décor consultants are here to help.

Before air conditioning, window awnings were a common fixture on many Australian homes to combat our scorching Aussie sun. Today’s modern awnings offer a passive home enhancement that cuts home energy consumption as we try to keep our homes cool through summer and warm during winter and can reduce your household carbon footprint.
Like when we slip, slop, slap on some SPF 30, Awnings act as a sunscreen for your home, protecting your windows and interior furnishings from UV damage and fading.
Available in blockout, mesh, and translucent fabric, awnings give you great control over how light enters your home. Leaving an awning down can completely block or limit sunlight and create privacy. Raising an awning partway will provide shade while still allowing plenty of sunlight, views and airflow through your windows.
If you choose to motorise your standard awnings, we can install sensors that will automatically open and close the awning based on the weather. Sensors make the most of seasonal sunshine, helping to cut your home heating and cooling costs.
When closed, awnings limit the amount of sunlight entering your home. Reduced glare improves picture quality, letting you watch television or work on the computer during the day with less distraction and eye strain.
If you select solar-powered motorised awnings you can use the sun's own energy to beat it at it's own game for ultimate mastery over the sun's rays.
