Awning Ideas / February 23, 2019 / Candy Calderon
Some awnings are finished with the business name emblazoned on the awning as well as the building street number. Avoid too much clutter on business awnings. A quick glance should point out the most significant information that s needed: name and building street number. Understated elegance always wins out when it comes to a professional look. Awnings Are A Good Value Considering the value awnings add to any business facade and the professional look they project awnings are a cost-effective addition that are durable attractive and easy to install. Most installations take less than a half day depending on the number of awnings are available in a variety of sizes. In the United States branding has become increasingly important in influencing consumer behavior.
If you do go for a retractable awning which is generally a good idea in climates which tend to vary between extremes there are further choices. Manual retractable awnings are those which you roll or fold up yourself. Motorized versions have a small electric motor that will do the job with a touch of a button. While motorized awnings seem to offer less work it doesn t always work out that way. Installation is more difficult due to wiring concerns so if you re doing the work yourself it will increase the time it takes you to install the awning. Also with more moving parts the odds of having to perform maintenance and repairs is much greater. Still if you take good care of your awning with preventive maintenance a motorized awning can be a great investment.
Imagine you re an upscale classy Jazz/live entertainment restaurant where music is as important as food. In that case an awning that includes the graphic of a jazz ensemble or horned instruments and large musical notes might be the way to go. If going for a more subtle approach a shade structure patterned in the shape of red bricks might match an actual brick (or stone) exterior. Remember that little changes such as these can go a long way toward an entire revamp of your restaurant and its ambiance. Of course if awnings and other shade structures improve the messaging of a restaurant and are a patron s first impressions canopies very often round out a restaurant-goers final thoughts. While less focuses on literal messaging than on style and atmosphere canopies extend a restaurant s outdoor footprint adding a sense of elegance as indoor amenities are brought outside.
