With so many shade solution options available, what sets shade sails apart? Well, the versatility and innovation offered by shade sails are unmatched by any other type of shade product. It’s not just in terms of the range of colour and fabric choices that shade sails come in, as there are more than a few ways in which shade sails can be used innovatively to create a truly unique outdoor décor design.
Area Size & Shape Doesn’t Matter
Even a small outdoor area in your home or business is not a problem – you can install a shade sail that is perfectly cut to suit the space. Unlike other permanent fixed shade structures, you don’t need the length of a solid wall fixture, as shade sails can be attached to virtually any stable structure including trees, supporting poles, beams or other suitable parts of a building.
It’s also a great solution for irregularly shaped outdoor sections. You aren’t restricted to just square or rectangular options. Shade sails can be cut into any shape, with triangular and diamond variations being the most popular for all types of outside areas.
Get Creative With The Layout
Shade sails can be anchored asymmetrically or at an angle. Angled shade sails act as stunning architectural features that provide an instant design facelift to any area. Angling the sail shades prevents water or leaves from accumulating in it, so it’s functional as well.
For larger outdoor sections, such as an outside courtyard, you can choose to add sail shades to select sections to split up the space according to usage needs. For example, having a covered eating area with tables and chairs, as well as an uncovered entertainment section.
Add A Dramatic Touch
You can have your shade sails cut into custom shapes and arranged in an overlapping design. For an even more dramatic look, use different coloured shades that complement or contrast the building’s colours. For those who want to add an even more cutting-edge look to their outdoor area, arrange the overlapping sail shades to allow the sunlight in through the gaps between sections.
You can get creative with the actual shapes of each shade sail section, and even install a number of differently shaped sail pieces that overlap at certain spots for an eye-catching design feature.
