One of the first decisions you’ll have to make after a decision to install a commercial awning is to choose an appropriate colour. Here are some tips to help you make the right decision.

The Goal of a Commercial Awning

As an effective marketing tool, a commercial awning should welcome customers while also making a great first impression. They provide an opportunity for your business’ personality to shine and stand out from the competition on the street.

Available in a variety of innovative designs, they easily add an impact to an otherwise ordinary storefront.

Choosing Your Commercial Awning’s Colour: Not as Easy as It Seems!

Choosing a colour for your commercial storefront is much different than selecting one for your home. At home, you can choose one based on your personal preferences and the colour surrounding your property. But with a commercial awning, a lot more thought needs to be put into selecting the right colour.

Choosing a Solid Colour

By choosing a solid colour, your commercial awning can easily be matched to your store’s branding.

Because colour can be used to send a certain message to your potential customers, choose your colour wisely! You want your commercial awning to be a continuation of your branding, so think about what that is. Certain colours convey more excitement to your business, whereas others offer a more calming effect.

Check out the list below for the type of message certain colours convey:

Orange: An especially attractive colour for children, orange also signifies power, energy and fun.
Blue: Known for wisdom and trust.
Pink: More attractive to females, pink is the colour of royalty and symbolizes luxury.
Gold: Traditional royal colour representing wealth and sophistication.
Brown: A great colour to be used for relaxation and stability, brown represents nature.
Black: A great choice to be used as a contrast colour, elegance is associated with black.

Adding a Logo to Your Commercial Awning

Besides choosing a solid colour for your commercial awning, have you considered graphically embellishing it with a message or logo? Not only does this addition make your storefront easy to find by passersby, it seamlessly associates your storefront with your brand!
