Awning Ideas / February 16, 2019 / Sabrina Carey
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.
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.
Most awnings on the side of the vehicle are 2.5 metres x 2 metres or 2 metres by 2 metres. The longer side is usually the one running length ways along your vehicle so make sure you measure to see which is going to sit the best. These things are great and incredibly cheap. In fact you can get a good quality one for under $300 and fit it in around an hour. 4WD Awnings are designed to be set up by one person and very quickly. The procedure normally involves unzipping the case un-clipping the supports rolling the awning out and standing the legs up. The legs are incorporated inside the aluminium frame that the awning rolls out of. Stand them up attach the supports and if it is windy put a few pegs in the ground with guy ropes going to the awning.
