How to choose between light shades and dark shades?

A shade sail protects you from the sun and the heat. Dark shades are the most effective in this area. They will be the most suitable in very sunny regions, in particular by reducing the sensation of glare caused by light rays.

Conversely, a shade sail in light colors will bring extra light to an area where the sun is less generous. The light will be more reflected, which will help create a sunnier ambiance for your whole garden while effectively filtering out UV rays.

However, you will note that the maintenance of your canvas will be easier for a dark sail than for a light sail. The latter is more sensitive to dirt, even with anti-stain treatment.

What colors of shade sail for a modern or more classic atmosphere?

The shade sail is directly part of the exterior decoration. It is most often chosen by the facade of the house (even if nothing prevents you from playing on contrasts):

  • An old house will thus go well with beige or ecru colors, sober and elegant at the same time.
  • Bright, expressive colors will better highlight a more contemporary decor.

Similarly, soft colors create an atmosphere closer to cocooning, where more energetic ranges give a more contemporary and dynamic atmosphere.

How to properly match your shade sail to your decoration?

A shade sail is a decorative element, just like the curtains or the paint on your facade. For a harmonious effect, you can match it with the color of the shutters or opt for cushions in the same color range as your canvas.

Today, more and more garden furniture is even colored, which will allow you to multiply the color reminders for a better decorative effect.

If the area you have to cover is large, opt for several shade sails rather than one larger size. You can play on several different colors and match them together. Be careful not to multiply the colors, at the risk of creating too much contrast. It is preferable either to stay on a gradient of the same shades (several blues, even going from blue to green) or to keep only one veil in a sustained tone, underlined and highlighted by others. More neutral canvases.

It is the case for all our fabrics for shade sails, from the Australe 220 range (which has four colors) to the Acryl 300 range, which has 25, without forgetting the Australe 340 and its sample of 8 available colors.

The luxury of tailor-made for your shade sail

shady corner is essential to ensure that your garden remains welcoming even when the sun is at its zenith or in the event of a drizzle. The current trend is for veils, but not just any: made-to-measure shade sails, please!

What is a shade sail?

Shade sails (or canvases) are made of textile materials. They are made to protect you from the sun, but depending on the design, these functional and decorative elements, at the same time, can offer you excellent protection against rain. Extended above the lawn, the swimming pool, or as an extension of the terrace, the shade sails guarantee you maximum comfort.

The custom-made elements of your shade sail

Setting up a custom shade sail starts with choosing a shape. You can opt for the classic triangular format, for a trapezium, a rectangle, etc.

Then choose your fabric. The mesh is a rot-proof material, resistant to UV, and whose longevity can extend over a good decade. Acrylic is rather recommended for summer use because of its very light fiber. The canvases in Soltis guarantee the best quality. Transparent and perfectly breathable, they promise shade and freshness.

The colors are also customizable, as are the fixing accessories: cables, pistons, turnbuckles, and bungee cords. If you wish, you can ask for different materials and colors to be mixed. It is even possible to have patterns printed on your canvas.

The advantages of a made-to-measure shade sail

A made-to-measure sail is much easier to install since the dimensions are perfectly adapted to cover the surface. You will also appreciate the fact of being able to combine decoration and practicality. Indeed, two fabrics can be superimposed (while respecting, all the same, a minimum of difference). The one below will provide shade; the one above will bring the ornamental note while preventing the consequences of any showers.

Thanks to the made-to-measure veil, you will have the opportunity to create a design space in your image in total respect of your budget. All you have to do is specify your aesthetic, financial, and practical requirements. The designers will take care of the rest.

Tailor-made, a guarantee of a design that suits you

You will certainly notice that ready-to-install sails are available in many shops. Although their dimensions are designed to adapt to different configurations, this does not guarantee a total match with your needs. The shade cloth may be too large or too small, which may affect the aesthetics of your accessory.

By choosing a tailor-made sail, you have the assurance that it fully meets your requirements. First, measure the space to be shaded to get an idea of ​​the correct dimensions for your shade sail.

A technician can come to your home for an in-depth study. His on-site visit allows him to assess the appropriate locations for the anchor points, the appropriate type of fixing, and other technical criteria that are taken into account in the design of your shade sail. Otherwise, place an order 100% online, without traveling and without an appointment on-site with a professional. All the useful tips are also in this article to help you in the ordering process.

You can then choose the material from which your shade sail will be made. Four materials stand out in particular:

– 300 gr/m² acrylic is a pre-treated waterproof material to resist UV rays. Available in several colors, it is durable and adapts perfectly to outdoor use. Moreover, acrylic is highly acclaimed in the nautical world;

– the 340 gr/m² mesh is a textile made of high-density polyethylene. Woven rather coarsely, it is micro-perforated, which gives it water-repellent properties. In other words, the water flows along with the shade sail instead of passing through;

– Soltis at 420 gr/m² is the material most used for shade sails design. It has micro-perforations that allow it to effectively regulate the perceived heat. The Soltis being very slightly transparent allows the air to circulate properly under the shade sail. Another advantage of Soltis is its durability over time and its recyclability. In addition, it is easy to maintain;

– byline at 500 gr/m² is particularly suited to the design of privacy and windbreaks. Resistant, the material provides both excellent water evacuation, good protection against the sun, and optimal ventilation.

The choice of colors is intrinsic to a design that appeals to you. Most of the colors available in the store are classic. Thanks to made-to-measure, you benefit from a wide range of colors. A specialized adviser will confirm that the choice depends on the type of atmosphere you are looking for. For example :

11 Choosing & Installing The Right Sun Shades Sail 2022

– for a pop design, think of orange, grenadine red, or anise

– for a vintage effect, favor anthracite gray and bright red

– for a vintage look, bet on champagne, cocoa brown, a yellow that tends towards gold, or a blue with turquoise shades

– for a natural finish, hemp and bamboo green, and linen color are to be considered

– for a sober and refined effect, prefer concrete grey, sand beige, cloud gray, pebble gray, or lagoon blue.

As mentioned before, these are examples only. Several other possibilities are, therefore, at your disposal. The technician who carries out the study on your premises will also be of good advice in choosing the colors of your shade cloth. You can also consult the online catalog of the chosen manufacturer to find out about the options available. It is possible to multiply the colors to create fully personalized combinations.

Once the shape, dimensions, material, and color have been selected, you must install your canvas according to your tastes. And here is already a great advantage assured to you by the made-to-measure.

Optimal performance thanks to tailor-made

The shade sail protects against the sun and the dangers associated with prolonged exposure, but not only. It adapts to a thousand, and one uses, depending on your specific needs. Made-to-measure is the guarantee that your shade sail fully performs its functions.

If you need a garden canvas to cover the outdoor dining area, it is necessary to include a margin of 70 cm behind the chairs. In this way, each guest can enjoy their meal without taking the sun on their head and back. Even the little ones will be effectively protected, which is far from negligible! A certain margin is always necessary, especially if the installation is carried out in an exposed area. The shade sail should be effective when the sun begins to rise, when it is at its zenith, and when it begins to set. It gives you excellent protection against heat and glare, both of which are annoying.

If you need a screen, the canvas should be opaque enough to preserve your privacy but relatively thin so as not to suffocate the atmosphere. The made-to-measure canvas will adapt perfectly to the installation space, whether the veranda, the party wall, a grassed area in the heart of the garden, or elsewhere. The main thing is to protect yourself effectively against prying eyes while preserving the aesthetics of the result. Consider the color of your walls without neglecting the openings (doors and windows). Make sure that the privacy screen matches the furniture or the railing. It is not necessary to bet on tone on tone. Nevertheless, the result must be harmonious because the shade sail also plays an ornamental role.

Precisely, we must not neglect the decorative function of the shade cloth. The idea is to integrate it judiciously into the decor so that it brings a certainly added value. Play with shadow and light, exposure and protection. Be inspired by the shape of your bespoke veil to create an artistic effect. By providing different anchor points, you can modify the appearance of your sail according to your desires. Lower or raise the corners to create a slope, waves, laying vertically. The tailor-made creation allows you to consider the style you like to assess the appropriate dimensions. If the shade sail is too tight, you must settle for a standard layout. If it’s too big,

Did you know that garden tarps can replace partitions? Thanks to their lightness, they invite themselves into exteriors without creating a clutter that would harm the design. If you have a swimming pool but haven’t planned a cabin yet, all you have to do is put up a shade sail so that you can change before or after swimming, without leaving the garden’s heat. Have you set up a nice corner for summer aperitifs? The shade sail can be a partition to protect you from the wind and prying eyes. Shade sails are excellent solutions for distinguishing the different areas you have set up outdoors and bringing a touch of refinement simultaneously. Of course, the sail must be tailor-made to fit easily into the available space.

Whatever the use you plan for your shade cloth, custom-made guarantees you a result that meets your requirements 100%.

Control your budget thanks to the personalized shade sail

Many people think that custom-made is reserved for the wealthy. In reality, this option is the one that best controls your expenses. Do you find it hard to believe? It is, however, simple. When ordering, you can indicate your budget to the technician in charge of your project. He will therefore offer you highly qualitative technical solutions based on the means at your disposal.

The savings are not limited to the design of the shade sail. Indeed, you will not have to incur additional expenses in case the fabric purchased does not suit the installation space. With a standard sail, it is sometimes necessary to provide additional poles and review the layout of the garden because, at the time of installation, the sail does not adapt to the configuration of the premises. Made-to-measure allows you to design a solar canvas following your exterior. The fixing type is chosen according to the solidity of the existing supports. If you need masts, you know in advance which ones to choose.

Made-to-measure is thus a reasonable option against the unexpected. From the start, you are informed of the work required, the essential accessories, etc. All that remains is to install your shade sail after delivery.

In terms of maintenance, tailor-made allows you to benefit from personalized advice. Each material ages differently, and specific recommendations may apply. Even before placing an order, you know which textiles are suitable according to the cleaning constraints they require.

This confirms that ordering a made-to-measure shade sail is ultimately less expensive than offering you a standard model.

Tailor-made to stand out

You have probably noticed that shade sails are present in many homes and public places. The majority of the paintings are similar, but some are visibly different. At first glance, you can see that they are an integral part of the decor while skilfully standing out from the other elements installed outdoors. It results from a personalized design that leaves no room for chance. Each existing element is studied, whether it is vegetation or solid structures. Made-to-measure is, therefore, a question of precision.

You don’t have to be like everyone else. Vary the styles according to your moods and your inspiration of the moment. The superposition of two or more veils in different colors is fairly common. What makes the difference is the choice of the color itself because custom-made allows you to order fabrics that cannot be found on the traditional market.

  1. Made-to-measure also allows you to become a shadow and light sculptor for a highly artistic rendering. The distance between two sails is cleverly calculated. The symmetry is carefully studied so that the visual is all in refinement. Adjusting the shadow zone according to the specificities of the space to be sheltered is simply impeccable. In this way, we can say that the shade sail is cut for your outdoor space, which allows it to stand out from classic models whose rendering will probably not be the same.
