KE Outdoor Design Retractable Motorized Awning and Sunshade Installed by Window-ology

Window-ology installed a motorized, retractable awning and exterior sunshade for a beautiful new build in Monte Sereno. The featured product are from KE Outdoor Design, a manufacturer of outdoor living accessories.


The Sunbrella fabric came in the "Linen Tweed" color with a classic wave cut, which complimented the home's terra-cotta exterior and European design influence.


The awning over the balcony measures 9'x7'8''.


An awning can be mounted almost anywhere. While many of our customers choose an awning for their patio or backyard, this project was a fun twist - a retractable awning over a balcony with a beautiful iron railing.


The sunshade was installed on the side of the brick pergola to provide additional shade to the patio leading to the grill.


Outdoor shades differ from interior window treatments in materials — window treatments are not made to weather the elements. Companies like KE Outdoor Design and SunSetter Awnings manufacture shades specifically made for the outdoors, able to withstand the beating sun and gentle wind, rain, and other conditions.
