How the right outdoor shading could benefit your business

Restaurant awning Dorset

Broadview provides outdoor shading solutions to hotels, shops and restaurants. We explain the different options, and how they could benefit your business.

Hotel shading solutions

We aim to help you create an inviting outdoor space that maximises your hotel’s potential and encourages guests to return. We offer a range of parasols, awnings and giant umbrellas, for flexible summer shading that can be conveniently stored in the winter. 

For something more fixed, our outdoor structures can be customised with heating, LED lighting, and options to fully enclose, making them ideal for use all year round. 

Whether you need a simple shading solution for your existing outdoor seating area or want to create a brand new, welcoming space for weddings and events, we can help. Take a look at how we created a beautiful, bespoke outdoor structure on the terrace area at The Sandbanks Hotel. The hotel uses this versatile new space as an additional dining area, and for private functions.

Restaurant shading

We have also provided shading solutions to cafés, pubs and restaurants. When Rick Stein Restaurants wanted to give their establishment in Barnes a facelift, we replaced their outdated awning with a beautiful new, branded and customised awning that created an attractive covered outdoor dining area.   

Shop awnings

Broadview shop awnings and canopies will set your shop apart and enhance your presence on the street. Our bespoke tailoring offers unique design and colour options to suit your image, and we also offer a diverse range of branding options to ensure continuity of your brand.

As well as looking great, awnings and canopies provide superb protection from the sun’s heat. This will ensure your customers have an enjoyable shopping experience. Integrated gutters drain rainwater down through the legs, so you have the peace of mind of knowing that your customers and any stock you have displayed outside won’t get wet. 

We recently worked with the National Trust, to provide shading cover for their Knoll Beach site in Studland Bay. We designed a range of canopies and awnings for three separate sheltered zones. The shading was intended to provide cover during unpleasant weather, as well as welcome relief from the sun in warmer months.
