Custom awnings are more than just functional additions to our homes; they are stylish extensions of architectural design, adding charm and practicality. The process of designing and installing custom awnings involves careful planning, creative thinking, and precise execution. 

Concept Creation

When you opt for a custom awning from Best Blinds & Awnings, you reap the benefits of a finely-tuned process that begins with understanding your specific needs and your vision for your outdoor space. Awnings serve both functional and aesthetic purposes. They provide shade from the sun, protect your outdoor patio from the elements, and enhance the overall look of your home. A good awning design should complement the architectural style of your house while also accommodating your specific requirements and how you intend to use the area it covers. This initial step sets the foundation for the entire project.

Design & Planning

Once the outdoor concept is established, the next step is to create a detailed plan and work out the exact specifications. It’s important at this point to take precise measurements of the space, calculating carefully to ensure that the awning fits and functions effectively. Factors such as individual budget, local building codes, and direction and intensity of sun exposure are all carefully considered during this stage.

Materials Selection

After the design and planning phase, we select the materials. Sifting through an extensive collection of possibilities for the frame, fabric, and additional components, we determine what combination of elements best fits your design. At Best Blinds & Awnings, we focus on choosing high-quality materials that are durable and weather-resistant as well as beautiful and stylish. We consider local weather patterns and the frequency and duration of your awning’s intended use when making our choices. The fabric is often treated to resist fading and mildew, ensuring that the awning remains in good condition for years to come.


With the materials in hand, craftsmen work to construct your unique awning. Using expertise gained over years of producing quality workmanship, they cut, sew, and assemble your selected components to create a beautiful and sturdy finished product. Precision and attention to detail are crucial during this stage to ensure that the awning is structurally sound and visually appealing. 


In the final stage of the custom awning process, our skilled team works to install your finished awning on your home. After mounting the frame, they securely fasten the fabric in place. The installation process can vary depending on the type of awning and the method of attachment. Some awnings are mounted directly to the building, while others may require additional support structures. Many awnings are now retractable, which involves installing a mechanism that allows you to extend and withdraw it as needed, reducing exposure to the elements and further prolonging your awning’s lifespan.

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

Communication between the client and the awning provider is essential throughout the collaborative effort. Best Blinds & Awnings prioritizes keeping the client informed and involved in every step of the process to ensure that their vision is realized.
