Awnings can upgrade your commercial space by adding comfort and curb appeal.

Are you ready to give your business a makeover? If you want to add fresh style to your commercial space, installing new awnings from Carroll Architectural Shade is one way to add style and benefits. A new awning can attract visitors to your store, draw attention to your entrance or sales windows, and even provide shade and energy savings that benefit you and your visitors. Consider the following if you want to know how to use awnings to upgrade your commercial space. When you’re ready to learn more, contact Carroll Architectural Shade to start the design process. 

Create a Stylish Atmosphere for Customers

No matter the size of your commercial space, new awnings can add a distinct style and atmosphere to your building. Fabric or metal awnings from Carroll Architectural Shade can create quite an impact on your customers. We partner with Datum, a leading awning manufacturer, to create the best and boldest metal awnings for our customers.

The new awnings, which can be painted to match your color scheme, or contain your logo and business name, will draw their eye. These awnings will attract visitors and tell them that you care about the presentation of your store. New awnings from Carroll Architectural Shade are designed to suit your building precisely and use high-quality materials to ensure maximum curb appeal and durability. 

Boost Your Energy Efficiency and Indoor Comfort

Awnings are not only helpful in boosting curb appeal but can also contribute to your energy expenses. Awnings provide shade, and when they cover glass windows or doors, they block direct sunlight from pouring into your store. When you install awnings to upgrade your commercial space, you can reduce the heat gain inside your building and keep your employees and customers cool. At the same time, you won’t need to block out all light with curtains or blinds that don’t appeal to customers. 

Installing awnings ensures passersby can still view your store and get a glimpse of your products while those inside can enjoy natural light and views. By keeping temperatures lower, you use your air conditioning less to reduce energy expenses in the spring and summer. 

Advertise Your Brand 

You can use custom awnings to upgrade your commercial space by increasing your branding. When an awning is built for you, you can select the colors and graphics included in your awning. Many business owners include their logo, business name, service hours, or other helpful information on their awnings so potential customers can receive this essential info immediately. Establishing your brand will help you attract and retain customers in a competitive marketplace. A distinct and attractive awning can help you do just that.
