Restaurant awnings come in many shapes and sizes. If you are a restaurant owner, you are likely to be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing the awning style that you want. Of course, the kind of awning that you pick is largely dependent on the aesthetics that you want to achieve, the kind of space that you want to cover, and the budget. The beauty of working with a restaurant awning professional is that you get a wider choice of styles thus helping to strengthen your brand. You also get a choice of good materials that will not fade or go out of shape. Given how important awnings are for your restaurant’s aesthetics, these are not factors to be taken lightly.
In this write-up, we give you some awesome awning ideas for your restaurant.
Large Extended Awnings
When you have a lot of space to cover and you are wondering what style works, you should opt for the large awnings. These can take different shapes but generally tend to have two or four vertical supports. While they take considerable material to set up, they may significantly increase your dining area, sometimes even doubling it. What this means is that you get more tables and more profits. Large awnings can also be used to cover performance stages where you can stage live bands, comedy shows, and much more. If you opt for retractable awnings, then you have the added advantage of being able to give your customers an under-the-stars dining experience.
These are different types of awnings that are mounted at the front of the store. Many restaurants use storefront awnings mostly for branding although they can help shield your customers from sun rays and much more. Other restaurants even use them to create an eating area outside and right next to the windows. This not only increases table space but also offers a different experience for clients looking to dine outdoors. Like all awnings, it is important to get the material and the structure right, otherwise, your restaurant gets a flabby look. A great way to create a ‘wall’ between the covered area and the street beyond is to use flowers. This creates a green effect while effectively protecting your clients.
Metal Standing Awnings
These are a type of awnings that are used to cover areas that are exposed to natural elements. Made of metal and covered by fabric, they are strong and very durable. The metal framing ensures that maximum light makes it through the awning, ensuring a naturally lit eating area. They also come in a wide range of gauges and patterns so you can customize them as you see fit. If you work with a professional to get these awnings done, they will probably recommend using metal that does not corrode. This eliminates any problems that will lead to structural damage.
