Commercial awnings can help you business get noticed by putting your name in front customers as they drive and walk past your establishment. Awnings also have functional purposes, such as protecting your customers from the elements. There are many different awning design options, so how do you select the right one for your business. Ask yourself these questions to narrow down your search for the right commercial awning.
What do I want my awning to achieve?
Your reason for getting an awning can have a big impact on the design. For example, if you want an awning that protects your customers from the weather, then you may want a wide or long awning that easily accommodates a crowd. If you want an awning that draws attention to your business’ name, then a smaller awning with a deep slope or vibrant color could be the right solution. Define your priorities for your awning so you can cross incompatible options off your list.
What are the municipal awning requirements?
Most cities have very specific guidelines about outdoor signage, including awnings. These regulations may limit the size, shape, color, height, and materials of your awning, so verify what is necessary in your area before you start designing. In many cases, you will also need to apply for a permit to post a new awning, so factor the permitting process into your project timeline.
How can incorporate my interior design into my awning?
Your awning should grab attention, but it should also complement your branding and style. Repeating the colors and fonts you use on the interior of your business into your awning design will help to deepen your customers’ understanding your brand identity.
