    0

    Living in any area where the sun is inevitable means enjoying the sun when it’s available. If you live in a semi-warm state with seasonal changes or you live in a state where the sun is always shining, why not add to your outdoor space with retractable awnings?

    Here are three benefits if you are thinking about getting retractable awnings for your home and outdoor spaces: Retractable Awnings

    • Adaptable
    The biggest benefit to retractable awnings is that they give you the ability to adapt to various seasonal changes. For example, if you live in a really hot climate like Florida, California or Arizona, the sun and humidity can get really hot after a while.

    During the mild months you can keep the retractable awning rolled up but when it gets really hot around July and August you can activate the retractable awnings to provide a nice cool shaded area. But that doesn’t mean these can’t be used in season states too. In fact, these awnings can actually be deactivated in cooler months to allow the sun to peek into your windows to warm your indoor spaces too.

    • Customizable
    Retractable awnings are also terrific for people that want the ability to customize their retractable awnings. These awnings come in a variety of colors and sizes to match your existing outdoor space.

    There are also various materials that you can choose from and you can also pick from either an automatic or manual system for your ease.

    • Long lasting
    Because these awnings are adaptable to a variety of climates and locations, they are made from tough materials that won’t fade from the sun and heat and they won’t tear from the wind, rain, snow or sleet.

    In fact, these awnings will hold up quite well under almost any extreme climate.

  • 5 Great Tips to Make the Most of Your Restaurant Patio

    1

    If you have a restaurant with an outdoor patio you have to make a conscious effort to really bring the inside décor and feeling outside. This will make patrons more likely to sit out there and really enjoy their surroundings. Here are a few things we recommend starting with if you really want to have a comfortable and welcoming outdoor patio.

    1. Highlighting the Best Parts. Even if you don’t have a fantastic backdrop and your patio doesn’t Restaurant Patioface the ocean or doesn’t face the street, it doesn’t mean you can’t create a patio that everyone will love. If you have a wall, consider a mural or plants and   flowers.

    2. Be Prepared For Outdoor Issues. If you own a restaurant down in the city, you might be having issues with the loud sounds from the traffic or even animals problems (pigeons, squirrels etc.). It’s a good time to start preparing for the worst case scenario now so you will be ready for anything if it ever presents itself.

    3. Rain – Rain Go Away. No matter how much you try to be prepared, Mother Nature will always have her own agenda! If it’s pouring, you are probably going to have to close the patio down unless you have a full awning. If it’s really sunny you should find products that will keep the sun out of people’s eyes; think umbrella tables, awnings and shade arbors.

    4. Dog Friendly. Some places allow people to bring their dogs to restaurant that have outdoor patios. You can make exceptions such as dogs only allowed during certain hours i.e. if breakfast and lunch are more laid back, but dinner is more fancy, you can allow people to bring dogs between 8am to 2pm.

    5. Furniture. Make sure that you use furniture that is comfortable! Some restaurants care only about how many people they can fit at a table or an area, but they never consider their patrons being comfy too. Make sure you keep their comfort in mind because even if you get them there once, the real value is making them want to come back time and time again.
