Traditional Victorian Awnings

Over the years, awnings have undergone a transformation of style, taken on various different forms and designs. However, their main function remained unchanged – they are used to providing shade and shelter, additional commercial or restaurant space, and stylish touch to a building front.

Victorian awnings are the most resilient and yet subtle awning solution.

Design That Never Gets Old

The techniques used to build Victorian awnings haven’t changed since the 1800s, a guarantee of its timeless look. Back then the purpose of traditional shop awnings was to shade the products from the blazing sun and shelter customers, but these days, they can be also used for branding purposes and a style statement. The design of traditional awnings still remains highly functional and easily-recognizable. At Awning Depot, we are on a mission to keep the timeless charm of the Victorian style awnings alive, because in areas where awnings with modern designs simply do not fit, this long-established, tried and tested awning solution has the ability to elevate the venue to a whole new level.
