A custom commercial awning can make a huge difference for your business.

When you are looking for a way to impress customers, designing a custom awning is an excellent way to show off some style. There are numerous awning styles and designs that business owners can choose from to illustrate their establishment’s personality. Awnings are great tools for adding shade and outdoor cover for your visitors, but they can also do a lot for boosting the visibility and appeal of your storefront. When designing your custom commercial awning with Carroll Architectural Shade, you should consider the following design factors to convey your business’s message and make an impact with potential customers. 

Select an Awning Design 

There are numerous custom commercial awning designs to explore. The style is often based in part on the function you expect your awning to serve. Is your awning designed to protect customers from the elements when entering your building? Or maybe window awnings are designed to block sunlight? Or, perhaps you are styling an awning to cover a patio area. By installing an awning that fits its function, your business will appear practical and design-efficient. Additionally, you will know that you and your guests are benefiting from what these awnings can offer. 

Choose the Fabric or Materials

The fabric and materials of a custom commercial awning should also be designed with function in mind but should be fitted to the type of business. For instance, a no-nonsense company should create an awning with high-quality vinyl and clean lines. This design helps the awning’s bold design stick out and convey a sense of seriousness and professionalism. On the other hand, a patio awning may opt for attractive scalloped edges or breathable fabrics to create the sense of a relaxing outdoor oasis. 

Select the Best Colors and Designs

Of course, finding the right colors and designs for your commercial awning is as essential as any other style factor. You want to avoid choosing a color that will make your awning blend into your building and surrounding stores. However, stripes or patterns that match building accents and trim can add a stylistic flourish. In general, you want your awning color to be one that stands out and draws attention to your business’s logo and entrance. If you are trying to attract a younger crowd, selecting fun, bright colors, and patterns can help you do so. 

Customize Your Custom Commercial Awning

Customization of awnings can be especially helpful for businesses. Because awnings typically display the business name and logo, you want to make sure your awning is designed to best highlight that information. If your business is new, you may want to customize your awning to make a significant impact. This can help customers begin to associate your awning design with your business. 

When adding an awning to your property, you never need to settle for existing designs. You can use professional designers’ guidance to create custom commercial awnings that are built to suit your business perfectly.
