Unleash the Power of Shade: Elevate Your Outdoor Living Space with Custom Awnings


Australia is renowned for its great outdoors, and as Aussies, we love spending time outside, soaking up the sun and enjoying nature. Whether it’s lounging on the patio, having drinks on the verandah, or organising barbecues with loved ones, being outside brings us joy and camaraderie. However, the unpredictable Aussie weather can put a damper on things, and no one wants to be caught in a sudden storm or dealing with annoying insects during their outdoor activities. Luckily, our incredible selection of awnings in Bateman’s Bay nips this right in the bud.

The right shade can protect you from the sun, rain, and insects, enhancing your outdoor living experience and adding value to your home. Awnings are a versatile option for extending an existing space such as a verandah, or creating a new one from scratch.

At Watson, we offer awnings that not only provide functional benefits but also look fantastic. Enjoy your outdoor space all year round with the perfect shade solution.

Why Choose Awnings?


Fabric Awning

Our awning fabrics come with a 10-year warranty, so you can trust their durability. These fabrics are specifically designed to withstand harsh Australian weather conditions, and they also look great while doing it. Some of our awnings, like the Folding Arm awnings, even offer custom colour options to suit your preferences.

It’s important to choose the right fabric for your awning to ensure it can withstand the weather and last for years to come. Different types of fabrics are recommended for different types of awnings. When selecting your fabric, consider the following:

Air flow

When you need an unobstructed view and can’t have air flow, Clear PVC is a great option. But if you want to enclose your verandah or patio while still allowing a cool breeze to pass through, choose a fabric with an open weave that has around 10% openness.


Fabrics used outdoors are exposed to various elements that can affect their quality. However, fabrics that come with DURAGUARD® Fabric Protection are designed to resist stains, prevent odour, inhibit bacteria growth, and deter mildew and fungi build-up. This ensures that your fabric remains in top condition for longer, despite being exposed to the elements.

Colour fastness

To maintain the original color of your awning fabric for years, it is important to choose a fabric with excellent fade-resistance to the sun. We recommend selecting a fabric with a fade-resistance rating of 6 or higher. This will ensure that your fabric retains its colour for a long time.

Privacy and view through

When choosing an awning fabric, you should be aware of the difference between open and closed weave fabrics. Think about whether you want privacy during the day or at night. An open weave fabric in a darker color provides excellent visibility during the day, but may also allow others to see inside at night.

Tips 'n Tricks

If you’re in need of an awning solution, whether for your home or retail space, it’s useful to have a checklist to ensure that you select the most suitable option for your needs.

As straightforward as the process may seem, it’s natural for questions to arise along the way. Going over a checklist can help you find the answers you need sooner rather than later.

  • Purpose: While it may seem obvious, identifying the specific purpose of your awning is crucial in determining the best solution for your needs. For example, an awning designed to cover a swimming pool may not be suitable for a storefront. Therefore, understanding the intended use of the awning is key to finding the most suitable solution.
  • Space:

    Once you’ve determined the purpose of your awning, it’s important to ensure that it’s a good fit for the space you have in mind. While most options will work seamlessly, there may be some cases where additional consideration is needed. Taking a moment to assess the situation can go a long way in ensuring you end up with the perfect awning for your needs, and our team is here to help you every step of the way.

  • Fabric:

    Scroll on up to find detailed information about our awning fabrics and the available options. However, your choice of fabric will ultimately depend on your intended use. For instance, if you need a see-through option, clear PVC might be more suitable than a retractable canvas awning.

We had honeycomb blinds and sheer curtains installed today and can not fault the process from beginning to end. Loyzek was on time to measure up and help us make decisions on what blinds and curtains would meet our needs and had amazing knowledge about all products. Today, Russell and Merv arrived were professional and courteous and completed the work in a timely manner with precision.
