Awning Ideas / February 24, 2019 / Shari Nelson
Unlike other permanent awnings you don t have to worry about the weight of snow buildup and you can take them down in the winter or leave them up all year. The retractable awnings give you the option to get sun on some days be shaded on extremely hot days or still be able to have a barbeque in a rain storm. Awnings are a great way to cut energy costs and many find the additional window shades can cut their utility bills substantially. Some motorized retractable awnings such as the SunSetter Screen Room allow you to add insect-screened protection to your deck or patio so you can use your outdoor room any time. Of course SunSetter is a leading brand of motorized retractable awnings and the offer Free Awning Idea Kits and a DVD. They have a variety of EasyShades Window Awnings and Patio or Deck awning options.
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.
If you need a new set of camper awnings try shopping around on the Internet. There are so many manufacturers available that it will do you good to do some bargain hunting and comparison shopping. This way you will be able to find high-quality easy to use camper awnings without spending an arm and a leg. It is also a good idea to read user reviews before you make the purchase to see what other campers like you have to say about a particular awning. Once you have taken care of the large majority of landscaping elements of your home what more can you do to make the exterior space more inviting and functional? Often projects such as outdoor kitchens and in-ground swimming pools are nice and luxurious improvements that are just too darn expensive for most of us.
