A new awning is a business detail that can have enormous impact. Probably more impact than any other single physical change you could make to your place of business, at least on the exterior. And that’s equally true for any type of office, not just hotels and restaurants and retail stores. New awning trends and options make finding what you want easier and more fun than ever, too.

There’s no need to wait till your existing awning is tired and you’re tired of looking at it. A new awning can breathe new life into your business, perking up interest from long-time clients as well as passersby. And a new look can give your own attitude a lift -- every day when you approach your office.

Here are a few new awning trends that might get your creative juices flowing.

Making the most of outdoor space.

The hottest new awning trend among homeowners continues to be creating more outdoor living space. Why not do the same for your office? If you’re lucky enough to have a courtyard or balcony, you could create an outdoor work space or client meeting room – comfortable enough for a consultation or catching some fresh air while working on your laptop or sitting through an endless conference call.

Your new awning could be a simple umbrella over a chair or work table. Or a retractable awning that covers a larger space. Retractables are wonderfully versatile, and you can close them up when you don’t need them. You can even get remote control to operate them.

No more working in a fishbowl.

Now there’s a trend any office-dweller can appreciate. If your desk is just inside a street-level window, as in many storefront offices, salons, professional practices, etc., you face an ugly choice every day: either you feel like pedestrians are looking over your shoulder, or you have to close your curtains or blinds and eliminate your opportunity to enjoy the benefits of natural light.

Forget that. One-way mesh roller blinds are the latest “new awning” for your windows. They provide cooling and privacy on the inside, yet you also get filtered light. And – you’ll love this – you can print the outward-facing side with your logo or any promotional artwork or message you want.

Subtle colors.

Popular new awning colors for homes are those that match or blend subtly with exterior colors, so the awning appears to be a seamless extension of the building. If you have a tiny storefront, a matching color could make your business exterior appear larger. On the other hand, you might want to go the other direction and choose a contrasting color that makes your office stand out more from your neighbors.

Interesting shapes.

Typically, it’s the top and sides of an awning we think about when we consider color and design. The framing assures assure strength and durability for your new awning, but it’s usually not much of a visual consideration. One new trend for larger awnings flips that point of view, with creative criss-cross or other structural variations that form interesting patterns when viewed from below. Make the most of this trend with lighter color fabric, so the under-structure appears backlit.

Consider curvy shapes, if you’re looking for a new awning that really says “new.” Not just the popular arched or domed or quarter-round canopies we’re used to seeing, but wavy configurations that can give even the sturdiest awning a softer, almost fluttery appearance. Perfect if your office is located at the beach, fun for the middle of NYC, too.

What’s right for your office depends on many factors other than what’s trendy, especially when you remember that your new awning will probably be in place for several years. Talk to your local awning professional to get the best advice on what new looks are most appropriate for your business.

Sometimes it’s obvious you need to redesign your storefront awning. But sometimes the signs aren’t so obvious, or they’re a little easier to ignore. So take a look at your place from your customer’s point of view. Because if your awning isn’t doing a bang-up marketing job, it isn’t helping grow your business.

Do any of these signs point to you?

New concept.

Your little lunchtime eatery has blossomed, and you’re adding take-out and catering. Or your tried-and-true “steak and suds” format has become embarrassingly outdated, so you’re introducing a new trendy menu and industrial chic interior. The old awning just doesn’t work any more. You need a new storefront awning that reflects the new you.

Corporate merger or acquisition.

Your business hasn’t changed, really, but it’s no longer business as usual from an identity standpoint. It’s essential to create a new storefront awning that accurately depicts this newly-acquired name and look.

Often, changes such as this are accompanied by a great sense of urgency if you’re in certain industries – not just for practical reasons, but to comply with corporate or government regulations. You don’t just need a new storefront awning, you need it fast.

New location.

You’ve moved. Changes are slim that your old storefront awning will fit your new space, so it’s time for a redesign that matches your new exterior as well as your business.

Expansion.

There’s nothing better than a business that’s growing. But if you’ve acquired the space next door and that extends your street frontage, you’ll need a redesigned storefront awning that shows off your growth and identifies the entirety of your newly extended exterior. Besides, you want to be sure all your windows are properly shaded by your awnings, to protect whatever’s on the inside from heat and the sun’s UV rays that can damage furnishings and merchandise.

Or perhaps this is the year you’re finally expanding outward, putting your sidewalk or patio to use for additional food and beverage seating. Your patrons will be thrilled, but they’ll be a lot happier if you cover that space with an awning that shades them from the sun. Your redesigned awning will promote your new outdoor seating to potential customers, too.

New ownership.

If you just purchased a business that carries the name of the former owner, you definitely need a new storefront awning that puts you in your rightful place.

Or maybe the business you purchased has been less than successful for whatever reason. You need more than a sign that says “under new management” to attract renewed customer interest, you need a new look, maybe even a new name, certainly a new storefront awning that pulls it all together with a fresh visual identity.

Nothing is new about your business, including your storefront awning.

It could be you’re simply becoming bored, because your current awning has been in place so long. If that’s the case, consider the fact that your prospective customers may have become bored, too – so used to seeing the same old awning they don’t even notice it or your business any more.

Worse, if your storefront awning is so old it’s starting to look past its prime, it’s speaking volumes – negative ones – about your place. It’s time to get rid of it and start over.

You saw something different you really love.

Good for you, for keeping your eyes – and your mind – open. Today’s storefront awning designs are more varied and versatile than ever, so why shouldn’t you take advantage of that? Especially if you have a cutting-edge business.

For some applications, you might consider retractable awnings. A retractable addition can be a valuable and cost-effective alternative, if your goal is to seasonally expand an existing storefront awning.

If one of these signs points to you, don’t ignore it. A storefront awning can help build your business, but only if it’s the right awning.
