Key Considerations When Designing a Shade Structure for Your Florida Restaurant
While some restaurants are keeping busy with record-breaking demand for curbside pickup and delivery, other establishments are planning for a future filled with seated service and dining on-location. Florida restaurants, particularly those near the coastline, are ideal for outdoor dining, and a shade structure from Datum can make outdoor spaces shine. Datum is proud to offer customizable awnings to suit any property. Here are some crucial factors to consider when designing a shade structure for your Florida restaurant with Datum.
What Should Your Shade Structure Look Like?
Your new shade structure can serve as an extension of your restaurant’s brand or your establishment’s existing architecture. Some business owners design awnings that stand out and attract attention while others choose more subtle features. When working with the team at Datum to design your new sunshade, it can be helpful to start with an idea of what you want your shade structure to look like. We offer a wide range of body and fascia options to suit the style of any property.
What Must Your Awning Cover?
Another critical aspect of designing your restaurant’s new sunshade is determining the area you would like to cover. Some businesses prefer a simple awning above the front doors or windows, while others choose more substantial structures. If your restaurant has a loading dock or drive-thru, you may benefit from a canopy that can keep it dry and shaded. Of course, many restaurants choose to install a shade structure to create an outdoor dining room or waiting area to enhance their customers’ experience. The location and purpose of your new sunshade will help you make some critical choices when it comes to design.
What Type of Weather Protection and Atmosphere are You Trying to Provide?
Finally, consider the type of weather with which you will have to contend. If your primary concern is to shield guests from the sun and rain as they eat, you may want to choose a sunshade that offers more significant weather protection. On the other hand, if your main goal is to provide a unique piece of decor or create a light and airy atmosphere, an awning with louvers or grates may be suitable.
