Deck Patio Awning Trends 2024: Outdoor Living to the Next Level

If you plan to get more use out of your backyard space this year, adding an awning is a great way to make the area more comfortable. Offering excellent sun protection in a stylish design, a retractable awning can help you use your deck even when the weather is less than ideal. To help you create a beautiful backyard area, we’ve rounded up seven deck patio awning trends for 2024 so you can choose the perfect one for your space. 

1. Use Color to Show off Your Sense of Style

We are proud to install high-quality awnings that come in several different styles and colors. Shades of blue are trending upward in 2024, so you might consider incorporating a cool hue to create a modern-looking space. 

When selecting a fabric color for your awning, it’s also important to consider the color of your siding and choose a complementary color for a cohesive look. You can complete the design by choosing outdoor furniture that matches your awning, creating the perfect space for entertaining. 

2. Energy Efficiency Is Key

One of the biggest home design trends in 2024 is energy-efficient solutions. You can stay on trend by selecting an awning with a design that’s optimized for shading the back area of your home, helping to keep it cooler in the summer. 

Adding a shaded area near your back door can help block out excess sunlight, so your air conditioning system doesn’t have to work as hard to keep your home comfortable. 

You can also choose an awning fabric that’s designed to reflect UV rays to help boost your home’s overall energy efficiency. 

3. It’s All About High-Quality Awning Materials

The key to a long-lasting, durable awning that you will enjoy for years to come is choosing one made with quality materials and consistently maintaining it. A lightweight fabric won’t be able to withstand heavy rains, for example, and a low-quality frame will develop usage issues down the road. 

Instead, choose a durable metal frame and heavy-duty fabric that is designed to last in our Iowa weather. We proudly install only the best awnings on the market from Eclipse, which carries a comprehensive Lifetime frame warranty.

4. Don’t Forget Lighting

Outdoor lighting is one thing that will never go out of style. Warm lighting options are growing in popularity for 2024, so keep that in mind when choosing which lighting to install beneath your awning. 

Some other outdoor lighting trends for the year include: 

  • Minimalistic lighting, for a clean and modern look

  • Energy-efficient LED lighting

  • Smart lighting which can be set on a timer

5. Motorized vs Manual Awning

When it comes to awnings this year, motorized is in! Homeowners like the convenience of a motorized awning, which can extend and retract all with the push of a button. Most of us are feeling busier than ever in 2024, so any time you can find a way to make your life more convenient–even when it comes to creating a more user-friendly backyard space–it’s a good thing. 

6. Consider a Chic Pattern

Just like certain colors are in style this year, there are also trendy textile patterns. When selecting your awning fabric, you can opt for an on-trend pattern like stripes or geometric shapes for an extra element of design. 

You can also add outdoor throw pillows or an outdoor rug to the space in a complementary pattern so your awning looks like a purposeful part of your design rather than an afterthought. 

7. Choose a Tech-Friendly Awning Option

Technology is a part of almost every aspect of our lives, and in 2024, your awning is no exception. Most motorized awnings can integrate with your smartphone so you can open and close it all by tapping your screen, no matter where you are in the world.
