Good sun protection: without sacrificing style or functionality. Remember sometimes going with a higher price doesn’t always mean matching quality. Metal will retain and radiate heat which in weather that rarely goes below 82 degrees would definitely effect customer satisfaction in the long run. So a more natural approach would be preferable. Or if you want a more affordable solution there is always plastic or strong fabric.
Rural local culture:
There are many extremely colorful local cultures in Singapore and even if you aren’t one to abide by them it’s important that your outer décor can tie back to the local roots in some way shape form or fashion. If nothing else it would make for an icebreaker in conversations if your customers are the business type.
What forms of restaurant shelter are there?:
Of-course there is the classic awning perfect for patio dining areas. Which make it easy to enjoy the outdoors without the sun glaring on you while you’re trying to enjoy your meal. There is also the Gazebo fashion roofing platform to give your patrons the feel of a romantic dinner for two under the stars and sets the perfect scene in the rainy season to show you are open year around. Any of these options and more would be completely dependent on the message your trying to get across to your patrons.
While most Restaurant owners or those who simply want to spice up their backyard buffet will usually have a color scheme in mind it’s still important to remember and take the weather factors into account. Did you know that darker colors absorb heat and studies have shown that darker colors imbed a slight gloom into those around it? There are often many different colors for you to choose from when looking for outdoor dining shelters.
Not only does material matter to the bottom line price of your outdoor shelter but it can play a key factor in the way your patrons feel in your restaurant or in the way your family and friends feel dining and lounging in your back or front deck. Metal is slightly pricier, but can provide you with years of sturdy protection from most every element Singapore has to offer. Cloth can come in a more elaborate array of colors and is easier to take down at the end of the day depending on the mechanisms involved.
The size and shape of the outdoor shelter/ awning should entirely depend on where you plan to place it in your home or restaurant. If the outdoor dining shelter is too bulky it could encroach on the other scenery your home or business has to offer, and if the shelter is to small then it would not only not protect the patrons or family under it, but may put off the feel of a “rushed choice” or worse.
Don’t worry we aren’t talking about price yet either. Figuring out the desired amount of outdoor shelter you wish to have installed is just as important if not more important than the style you want. Having too few outdoor dining shelters can send the message that you aren’t doing well as a business and may put off customers, or if you are getting it for personal use then it may seem like a small side attraction as opposed to an outdoor centerpiece that it should be.
What exactly are you getting for your money? Will your outdoor dining shelter last a year? 2 years? 10? While this often depends mainly on the amount you are willing to spend there are still smart alternatives when choosing what you use and deciding which would be best for your needs just ask yourself these questions.
Do I plan to get something that will stay out year around?
How much use will this get?
What has the weather been like as of late, and what will it be like in the weeks to come?
Finally! The price:
What you plan to pay for your awning or restaurant outdoor shelter seems like the most frightening part of picking which one is right for you. You should never compromise price for quality at least not what you can afford’ see if there are any deals going on with the company you decide to go with. Often times they will be having a clearance sale on one item or another that will often times be perfect for your needs, and can often come in some beautiful colors and designs.
