Now that you know what you would like to put on your awning and where you’d like to put it, it’s time to choose the perfect color for your new awning. The color that you choose will be part of the first impression that your home or business makes for years to come, so how can you choose the right one? Here are some tips for choosing the perfect color for your awning.
Why Are You Purchasing an Awning?
First things first, keep in mind why you are buying an awning in the first place. Is the awning for your home or your business? If it’s for your business, you are probably purchasing to help with advertising, branding, and the additional energy benefits. If you are buying your new awning for your home, you probably have aesthetics, safety, and energy bills on your mind.
What Do You Want to Convey?
Whether or not you realize it, different colors put off different feelings or energies. Red is traditionally associated with excitement and anticipation, which is why so many restaurants use it in their advertising. Blue is a color meant to inspire trust and calm in the people viewing it. Yellow is another common color in food advertising because it is associated with fun and confidence. Green is another calming color and now has come to represent environmentally friendly or green businesses.
What Does the Awning Need to Match?
Next, consider the surroundings that the awning will be in. What color is the exterior of your home or business? You want to make sure that your awning compliments everything around it so that it doesn’t clash or seem out of place. You probably wouldn’t wear a shirt in the exact same shade as your pants, so don’t pick an awning color that perfectly matches the shade of your building.
