Residential Shade Sails

Residential shade sails are an affordable alternative to other fixed shade structures. We can literally design them to fit around any size or shape of outdoor space you require shade and sun protection for.

Some of the many benefits of installing domestic shade sails include:

  • Extending your outdoor living and entertaining spaces
  • Saving money and the environment with passive cooling of your home 
  • Reducing glare
  • Providing privacy
  • Keeping your family safe from harmful UV radiation
  • Protection from tree droppings
  • Adding street appeal and value to your home

At Creative Canvas we design custom make and install our architecturally attractive domestic shade sails in a wide variety of colours and fabrics … we can even make waterproof shade sails too, depending on the fabric and size you choose.

You can totally block or change the level of UV radiation absorption and the amount of light under your shade sail depending on the fabric chosen. All our shade cloth manufacturers state the level of UV protection for each colour and weave. 

​​Posts can be powder coat or etch primed and painted with urethane paint, all fittings and wires are stainless steel marine grade and we use PTFE thread for the stitching, which comes with  a 15 year warranty.

Our high quality domestic shade sails are ideal for shading:

  • Balconies and patios
  • Pool and spa areas
  • Gardens
  • Carports, caravans and boats
  • Privacy screens

Residential Shade Sails for Balconies and Patios

A residential shade sail for your balcony or patio provides you with permanent shade at an affordable cost, as well as the flexibility to shade just one part of your balcony or patio, instead of the entire space.

Installing a shade sail on your balcony or patio also provides you with passive cooling for your home by dramatically reducing the amount of heat and glare from the sun that hits your windows or doors.

Patio shade sails immediately extend and enhance your usable outdoor space, while balcony shade sails can enhance the street appeal of your home.

All of our Creative Canvas domestic shade sails for balconies and patios can be custom made in a wide variety of colours and fabrics to suit the design and colour of your home.

Residential Shade Sails for Pool and Spa Areas

Enjoy more time relaxing in and around your pool, keep cool all year round and protect your family from harmful UV rays with our domestic shade sails for pool and spa areas.

We only use long lasting commercial grade PTFE thread for the stitching of our shade sails because unlike other fabrics, it does not deteriorate from exposure to elements such as UV sunlight, cleaning agents, salt water and extreme weather. 

Whether you decide to shade all or part of your pool area, choose from a single shade sail or several shade sails, we will custom make a shade sail solution to enhance your pool and spa area, providing you with the maximum amount of shade possible, while also being totally council compliant.

Not only can shade sails be used to protect your family and pets outdoors, but they can also provide shade and protection for your plants, outdoor furniture and garden paths.

Installing shade sails in your backyard instantly creates inviting outdoor spaces to relax in, usually without the cost or requirement for council planning permission that may come with other  alternative outdoor fixed shade structures
