Choosing A Door Awning Choosing A Door Awning

A door awning will give your house a fantastic look without a lot of effort. When it comes to choosing one you will be faced with many options. Here are a few ways you can narrow down your choices.

Consider the Architecture

A classic farmhouse will look out of place with modern styled awnings. A modern home may look strange with traditional awnings. When you are considering adding a door awning take a look at the overall design of your home before you choose a style.

Fabric Patterns

Most awnings are mass produced in a stripe or a solid color. You aren’t limited to these only though. You may love the look of a Nantucket style stripe, and if that’s the case then choosing an awning will only be as hard as choosing a color. If you want something a little different than just look around. You may need to have the awning custom created, but the look will be worth the wait.

Frame Styles

Most door awnings are made to attach directly to the house. If you want something more unique, or you have a stairwell that you want covered, consider using a frame that bolts directly in to the concrete on the porch. You can find a variety of frame styles that will suit your home.

Choosing a door awning should take you some time. Don’t just grab the first one you see. Take your time, research, and play with different ideas.
