Awning Ideas / February 20, 2019 / Dominique Massey
Likewise when rain disturbs your outdoor plans--there s no reason to run inside. If you want to tan in the direct sun or take advantage of some heat on a cold fall day the awning can be rolled up just as quickly. When stored retractable awnings take up about six inches of horizontal space on the side of a building. Installed at a downward angle they need to be attached at least seven and a half feet off the ground. All right we ve covered "What are they?" Now let s deal quickly with the benefits that awnings give home and business owners. What can retractable awnings do for you? Obviously they give you a way to control the elements and this is more than an aesthetic pleasure since it preserves furniture from bleaching and lowers utility bills.
So before getting on the designing table take stock by checking out the entire area entrance and booths included and see what you have got to build on. Just remember that you have to create an ambience which will help customers enjoy their food better and bring them back again. So here are a few tips in addition to the above to spruce up your restaurant s decor: * Choose a theme: If you choose a certain theme which matches the area your eatery is in or the food you serve or the specialty of your restaurant it can really simplify your decorating decision. For instance for a joint on the beach you can have a tropical décor theme with the colors of the sun sand and the sea on your walls and furniture. Similarly for a rock music themed restaurant you can use dark colors on your walls put up posters of rock legends and use dim lighting etc. to create the dreamy effect of a rock star s van.
Once the internal brainstorming is complete it s time to send in the reserves: the services of a top-notch signage company that can deliver the message in an effective and yet subtle manner. Innovative outdoor signs and awnings are essentially an extension of your traditional marketing and branding campaign. Think about it this way: a recent survey by the University of Cincinnati reveals that next to television customers find traditional signs and awnings the most affective means of advertising and that half of American shoppers would like to see larger signs - especially when driving. What s more two-thirds of respondents ages 18-24 said they had even driven past a store whose sign or awning they failed to read or worse yet find.
