• 3 Shade Options for Modern Home Designs

    If you are decorating your home with a modern style, you may be interested in continuing that design onto your patio or in your window covers. When designing your home, there are a number of modern shade options you can choose from to create the perfect look.

    Horizontal Roman Shades

    Roman shades are canvas coverings that are typically used for windows. When retracted, Roman shades stack neatly upon themselves, but create a seamless appearance when open. Horizontal Roman shades expand on this idea, but hang overhead as shade panels. Because they require minimal framework and can be retracted or extended partially, horizontal Roman shades are the perfect option for many outdoor spaces. You can choose from a variety of colors and patterns to create the perfect outdoor living space with a modern design.

    Shade Sails

    Another modern shade covering option is shade sails. Shade sails are triangular canvas pieces that can be suspended outside to create comfortably shaded areas. Shade sails can be made in a number of sizes, allowing you to create a shaded spot in any backyard, no matter the size. Because of their unusual triangular shape and clean lines, shade sails fit perfectly into modern design aesthetics.

    Solar Screens

    Blocking the sun can also be important in indoor living spaces. Solar screens are sleek window coverings that block harsh sunlight from entering your home. However, unlike other window coverings, solar screens are transparent from the inside. Solar screens allow you to keep heat and radiation from the sun from entering your home while maintaining a view of your yard. If you are looking for a minimalist window covering for your modern home, solar screens may be the perfect choice.

  • 3 Factors to Consider When Installing a Restaurant Patio Cover

      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.
