The time has come to choose a color for your canvas, and at Toldos Guardamar we will guide you to offer you the best possible color in each of the circumstances in which you move.
For example, if you live in a building, the color should be the same as the rest of the floors in your community, so as not to break with the aesthetics of the property, so the choice may have been made before installing your awning, but if you live In a private home, we are going to give you a series of tips.
There are basically three types of colors; solid, striped or printed. It is important to know what type of image you like best or looks best with your facade. Solid colors are more sober, they never go out of style and are suitable for different types of buildings. The stripes can be classic, usually white in combination with blue or green, or other less regular stripes, which encourage imagination and creativity. And then there are the prints, perhaps the least used nowadays, and that combine a design printed towards the inside, with a solid color towards the outside. The latter are rarely used today and are only requested when uniformity with the community must be maintained.
Colors do not absorb or reflect color in exactly the same way. Dark colored awnings absorb light and light ones reflect it. The nuances also count: an awning of a cold color, such as blue, accentuates the feeling of freshness and a yellow awning, achieves the opposite effect, giving a feeling of warmth.
If the terrace is very bright, exposed almost all day to the sun, our recommendation is that you opt for intense and natural colors, such as gray, brown, green or blue. Warm colors such as reds and oranges are usually used in areas of greater animation and where it will be shared with more people, since they are tones that promote interaction. While white, cream or yellow awnings are better on terraces with less light, where the awning covers more a need for privacy protection, but we want to let the more light through the better and accentuate the feeling of spaciousness of the space.
