Awning Ideas / February 23, 2019 / Leann Parker
By controlling sunlight you ll find yourself getting more use out of the amenities and spaces you already own: poolside deck balcony patio; grill gazebo outdoor bar hot tub. But there s more. Awnings act as an extension of your home adding square footage to your home or commercial building. They allow you to expand the look and feel of your interior into the outdoors serving as an architectural addition but without the typical costs. No contractor or expensive installation is required. In the residential setting this results in outdoor space for entertaining relaxing and eating. In the business setting it means additional room to seat patrons serve customers or hold meetings. In both cases the "outdoor rooms" end up adding value to the business or home. On top of this awnings result in direct energy savings. Installed strategically they make the inside of a building up to 15 degrees cooler cutting direct sunlight and shading windows.
Choose a theme and based on that decide on the colors furniture size wall decorative pieces and ceiling enhancement ideas. * Color scheme for a theme-less restaurant: In case you do not want any theme to define your restaurant you can them work towards combining various elements to create a great ambience. The color of your walls matters a lot. So choose colors which complement each other and give a welcoming feel to the whole place. Keep the entrance uncluttered to let the visitors see they are in an open and spacious eating joint. * Lights can make a huge impact: You can make your restaurant look classy Victorian edgy or modern or even homely with your choice of lights. So choose lamps and light fixtures which will offer your restaurant a definite look and feel. You can also hang beautiful lamps from your ceilings and give the entire area a pleasant feel. * Decorate the walls: Choose pictures or items/memorabilia or posters to hang on your walls based on certain considerations. They should match the furniture you have (specially the picture frames) and also the entire ambience created by the colors tables and the light fixtures.
This can help meld the two together into a coherent whole that wouldn t exist without the awning. Residential awnings come in many sizes styles and applications. Some awnings are designed to keep glare off of single windows while others extend for the length of the building. It s a good idea to match your awnings to the outdoor living areas that you plan to spend time in so as to provide adequate shelter for times of inclement weather. This means that it can also make sense to plan such things as decks and patios adjacent to your home alongside planning the awnings so that the two can be designed with each other in mind. Another important thing to bear in mind while looking for residential awnings is whether you will prefer a retractable awning or a fixed one.
