Every business is as good as its visual appeal – be it banner signs, exterior paint, interior decor and so on. One of the ways to enhance the visual appeal of your business is by adding a custom awning. An attractive entrance can easily make the space feel warmer and more welcoming. Regardless of whether you own a cafe or a retail store, a commercial awning can amp up its look and feel. However, it is essential to pick an awning that not only fits your budget but also complements your overall theme and decor.
Where can you place these awnings?
The placement of your awnings entirely depends on their purpose and your business theme. Ideally, awnings can be placed at entryways, along long pathways, over windows, over a patio or a deck, in an open space (like gardens) or even inside your establishment. It is essential to pick the right type of awning for a specific placement.
Types of custom awnings for businesses:
Commercial awnings can be broadly categorized into four types based on their make and function. As a business owner, you need to research thoroughly before you pick one:
1. Retractable Custom Awnings
Retractable awnings are really popular and mainly used by culinary enterprises such as restaurants and cafes. They are mounted to the wall and can be extended or retracted at will. They can also make for a great addition to terraces and balconies to shade the area from rain or harsh sunlight. One of the top three exterior commercial awnings, they offer increased outdoor dining space at restaurants and create a chic visual appeal.
2. Drop Arm Commercial Awnings
Drop arm awnings are extremely sloped awnings installed above windows to prevent sunlight from coming in. They serve as great storefront awnings for advertisement. Moreover, they can also be rolled up whenever they are not needed and can be utilized to display banner signs for your business.
3. Freestanding Awnings
Freestanding awnings are independently fixed shades that stand on vertical poles. Ideally, two awnings are mounted on any number of poles depending on their design. These custom awnings are perfect for creating shade in outdoor seating areas at home or in al fresco cafes, bookstores planning to organize exhibitions etc.
4. Pivot Arm Custom Awnings
Pivot arm awnings are held in place by a set of poles or ‘arms’. They are placed at an angle over windows to shade them from sunlight and heat. They can add a chic vintage look to any business while also helping create a cool space sans air conditioning.
Custom awnings for commercial organizations are versatile and chic. They help shade your interiors from sunlight and heat, create a vintage look and can enable advertisement endeavors as well. Depending on the layout and niche of your business, and your budget, you could pick any or all of the above-mentioned awnings.
