3 Factors to Consider When Installing a Restaurant Patio Cover

Sweetwater Park- Shade Panels-Moran Canvas

 Your restaurant’s patio will see far more use if it features a cover. When installing a canvas awning to cover your patio, there are a few important things to keep in mind if you want to attract diners and create a comfortable space.

 1.      Direction of the Sun

The main function of a canvas awning is to block sunlight; as such, determining where and when sunlight enters your restaurant’s patio is important to consider before installation. The direction from which light shines will dictate your cover’s dimensions and overall design. How far your patio cover should extend can’t be determined without careful planning.

 2.      Awning Style

Your restaurant’s overall aesthetic and atmosphere will help you decide which style of awning to choose. No matter whether you offer an elegant fine dining experience or a sports bar setting, a custom awning can be tailored uniquely for you. Don’t forget convenience and work flow. You will want a patio cover that is easy to maintain and doesn’t get in the way of the waitstaff.  You may choose a retractable cover or a permanent awning with your restaurant’s logo and name. Whichever style you choose should flow with the ambiance and decor of your restaurant.

 3.      Color of the Awning

Make sure the color of the awning you install also matches your brand. Consider the styles and colors that your restaurant’s logo and signage feature. Also, did you know that bright red and green colors have been shown to excite the appetite? All these elements should be considered when choosing the perfect color for your patio cover.

A canvas cover is a great way to increase the use of your patio. Covers make outdoor seating viable year-round. For custom canvas awnings, call Moran Canvas Products at (888) 904-8665. Visit our website learn more about how to begin designing the ideal patio cover or awning.

Following a consistent color scheme will also aid in pulling everything together. Flowers, candles, and potted plants can all create a fun feel.

Canvas can be used to create all sorts of fun and exciting design elements in your home. At Moran Canvas Products, we pride ourselves on being able to create outstanding spaces with custom canvas products.

  • Create Covered Parking

One canvas creation that can enhance your home is a sail shade over your driveway. You can create a covered parking space easily and for less than constructing a new garage or carport. Canvas is a wonderful sun-blocking material that can protect your car’s interior from sun bleaching and its exterior from debris, bird droppings, and weather conditions.

  • Build Your Dream Bedroom

Installing a canopy over your bed will create romance and style in the bedroom. At Moran Canvas Products, we can custom build unique and beautiful bed canopies in any shape or size. A canopy may be the perfect finishing touch to bring your bedroom design together.

  • Make a Fun Space for the Kids

Children love to play pretend, which is even more fun when they have a space of their own to play in. Why not construct a custom canvas playhouse in your backyard? You can create a fun play place for your children to enjoy away from the sun and elements. Your custom canvas playhouse will be unlike anything else in the neighborhood!

  • Transform Your Backyard

Without shade from the sun and protection from rain, your backyard can be a hard space to utilize. A custom canvas awning is a great way to establish a cool and dry space in your backyard that can be used year-round. Adding a cozy, indoor-inspired terrace to your outdoor space is a cinch with a custom-built canvas awning from Moran.

Enhancing your home with canvas products will help you create the perfect space to live and play. To learn more about our canvas options, call Moran Canvas Products at (888) 904-8655. We strive to provide the finest canvas craftsmanship for all your projects.
