Now that the clocks have changed, spring has sprung, and we can start to enjoy the lighter nights. With the sun coming out more than it has been recently, we can look forward to spending more time outdoors. We can spend more time in our gardens, pub beer gardens or dining al fresco at our favourite restaurants (hopefully!). Using garden parasols to maximise our outdoor spaces over the coming months can have fantastic results.
Brighten up your summer with garden parasols
Firstly, we know that your loving customers come flocking in when the sun is out. What if they want to enjoy the heat but don’t want the glaring sun in their eyes? They sure won’t want to huddle inside.
A perfect solution to this is to revamp your outdoor spaces and terraces with garden parasols. They are versatile in that you can extend them when the sun is at its brightest. As it eases off, your customers can enjoy the sun as they wish.
The addition of terrace and beer garden parasols not only means that the crowds can enjoy al fresco dining and drinking. There also becomes more space for more customers to visit! A winning result for both parties.
A garden parasol is not just for summer…
Now, let’s not forget that we are living in the UK, so it may not be super sunny all summer. Luckily, garden parasols can be for more than just sun protection. Take Arts Bar and Grill, in Bowness-on-Windermere. Unpredictable Lake District weather meant they needed an adaptable product. One to manage the glaring sun, but also to open up their outdoor space for usage all year-round. Here at James Robertshaw, we created parasols for their outdoor area which did exactly that. We also integrated heating and lighting for those cooler summer days. Having a versatile addition to the business increased turnover by an outstanding 300%!
A colour pop for added style
A quick scroll through Pinterest showcases some truly stunning landscaping ideas for restaurant and hotel gardens. These range from parasols draped in fairy lights, to quirkier designs with tassels to add style to any outdoor space.
Spring Summer 2018 colour trends are broad ranging, but one which is particularly eye-catching is red. From bright red to dark red, take your pick! A red garden parasol would add a fantastic pop of colour to any size and style of outdoor deign.
If you’re looking for colour inspiration, the Pantone Colour of The Year 2018 is Ultra Violet. Lilac and purple hues in your garden areas could add some style to the atmosphere and aesthetic of your restaurant, bar or hotel.
Whether your garden consists of pretty patio furniture or colourful flowers in bloom, why not consider the finishing touch of beautiful garden parasols? Customers can admire your outdoor space and relax under in the summer days, in joyful bliss.
