Ways to Freshen Up Your Patio

You step into your beautiful backyard on a warm spring afternoon, but something is missing: it reminds you of the dull winter days that are now behind us. Pretty soon, you’ll be inviting friends over for an outdoor gathering, but you’re embarrassed by your backyard’s appeal. Here are four essentials you need (and we swear by) if you’re looking to freshen up outdoor space: 


New Pillows. We’ve all been to an outdoor gathering where the seating is quite uncomfortable - don’t be that host. Fluff and throw down some pillows - your guests will be happy you did. Add these bright colors to your swing and table set chairs. You can even create a space for kids on the ground - sort of like a mini fort from when you were a kid! 

Trees. Let’s look beyond fabric and focus on the one element every yard needs: greens! Buy large pots and plant mini trees and flower arrangements in them. Not only will it create a wonderful aroma, but it will also boost the flow of oxygen and create a little bit of cozy privacy in your yard. 

Lighting. When you’re hosting an evening party, the last thing you want is for it to go dark. Light up the night with Edison-inspired lights or anything that creates a festive atmosphere. Go the extra mile and add a fire pit as well! 

Awnings. Now, your friends come to this party of yours and it starts raining. But inside your home, it’s a mess and you don’t want to postpone. This has happened to many more of us than we’d like to admit. That is why we recommend you install a residential custom awning above your patio to keep everyone (including your patio) dry. Even for those super sunny afternoons, your guests will stay cool and shady all day long. 


Your outdoor space should not only look appealing - it should also be functional for when you invite guests over. If you checked everything off your patio makeover list but still need an awning, call Dean Custom Awnings. We offer some of the best top selling residential awnings and can offer you professional advice on your home’s needs. To learn more, give us a call at (845) 425-1193 or visit us on the web.  


How to Prepare Your Business for Spring

This weekend, we finally leap into spring! Is your business prepared for the changing seasons? From seasonal sales to energy savings, there are a few things you can do to get your business ready for the warmer months: 




New Sign
Spring is the time of year when new products are introduced and season specials occur. Attract more customers by creating a new and enticing sign to promote your new products and your sales. Remember: visuals are significantly more effective than text, so if you’re going to use text, do so wisely without giving away too much. 

Window Tinting
The sun will soon be shining bright. Wouldn’t it be smart to invest in window tinting? Not only will it block out a glare for your customers, but it will also conceal what’s inside your business, creating a bigger mystery and attracting more potential customers. 

Awnings
Whether you own a restaurant or a retail store, there are many benefits to investing in an outdoor awning for your business. Did you know that awnings can protect your customers from April showers as well as reduce indoor temperatures by 8 to 15 degrees?  Regardless of the type of business you manage, creating a customized awning is essential to your business for the warmer months (and all year round). 

If you’re in the market for a customized commercial awning, turn to Dean Custom Awnings! We can help you create a custom awning, tailored to fit your spring and summertime needs, and show you digital renderings to make sure you are nothing short of satisfied.
