Patio traditional-porch


The striped awning offers protection from the afternoon sun while adding beauty to the exterior. Additionally, a motorized, retractable and transparent screen installed behind a custom-fitted, removable apron protects against the harsher elements and insures privacy. The fabric for the custom made cushions is from Pindler & Pindler's outdoor collection.

We designed the ceiling box that houses the shades and the wiring, but Durkins Inc., of
90 Beaver Brook Rd.,Danbury, CT 06810 fabricated the awnings. 203-748-2142. They have a wide assortment of outdoor fabrics to choose from. The one we chose may not be in their current line.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Modern Awnings: Sails Shade the Home
The traditional porch relied less on the awning and more on the architecture to create the enclosure and space.
Laura Fenton added this to Rocking Chairs Roll Onto Porches
An awning-shaded porch is the perfect summer retreat. Designer Sara Hopkins upholstered the cushions with a print from Pindler & Pindler's outdoor collection.
Becky Harris added this to Enliven Your Porch With Color
Add an awning. Not only will it provide extra shade as needed, but an awning provides color and pattern to play off of, as these coastal seat cushions show.More:12 Ways to Prep the Porch for Summer10 Ways to Bedeck Your Deck
Becky Harris added this to Get It Done: Winterize Your Patio
Take care of awnings. Take down and clean any removable awnings, then store these in a dry place, too.
