Awning Canopies / September 5, 2019 / Candy Calderon
Working with the professional will help to ensure the structure s success and the client s contentment. Provide input on what s important to you and your hotel or resort. Suggest bright bold colors for cabana designs on a family oriented beach resort or darker shades for canopies and awnings at an outdoor hotel bar with a bustling nightlife. Suggest rows of cabanas for a luxury summer resort or consider a variety of awnings canopies and cabana designs for a casual and contemporary feel. Channel that vibe of a relaxing summer s day or night especially since "hitting the beach and other warm-weather activities" recently won first place in a Road & Travel Magazine poll on favorite vacations. After clearly laying out your visions take in the expert s advice on structure style and set up.
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. Built from a similar selection of material as stated in the previous paragraph canopies can still retain the natural collective body heat from guests (and hot food) with only the most minor of fold-down fabric walls. And as fall weather progresses and the temperatures drop these simple measures can be augmented with propane heaters turning outdoor dining into a year round possibility - even in some of the country s harsher winter climates.
For one thing awnings and commercial shade structures are all about making a first impression. Remember that long before a restaurant patron has taken their first bite of bread or sipped their first cocktail they ve already surveyed the exterior of the building. Does your restaurant fit the neighborhood? Does it stand out in a productive and meaningful manner? And is the restaurant s signage appropriate for the space? Failure to pass these basic tests may mean a loss of business - something no restaurant owner wants to see happen. Awnings and canopies are ideal ways to invite a positive dining experience. Awnings are both functional and promotional items. On one hand they protect patrons from the elements providing a measure of wind shield shade during sultry summer evenings and of course protection from rain and even snow.
