Decking out your terrace: a valuable asset

Even ifterrace design isn’t necessarily the top priority when you’re launching your business, there are many short- and long-term advantages to this operation. Here’s why having a terrace on your premises is an undeniable asset.


Increase the number of customers

An efficiently protected terrace lets you welcome your customers whatever the weather. It optimizes the surface area available in your establishment and lets you add extra tables and chairs. This allows you to serve even more people. Depending on the solution you choose, you can even extend the period of use of the terrace beyond the summer season. At the beginning of autumn, temperatures are still pleasant enough to enjoy a meal or a drink outside.

Improve the attractiveness of your business

An attractive, well-sheltered terrace also enhances the appeal of your restaurant or bar. Indeed, if you install designer furniture with contemporary chairs, your terrace will arouse people’s curiosity. You can also, for example, replace your shop front with a modern, elegant touch. It will help you attract new customers and, at the same time, increase your sales.

Opening up to the outside world

Depending on the solution you choose, the addition of a terrace en closure also opens up your restaurant or café to the outside, letting in the light. In summer, simply open your restaurant doors wide to let the fresh air into all the rooms. You’ll save on your heating energy, which is an appreciable point when you’re independent in the HORECA.

Let’s take a look at the different ways you can protect andfurnish your terrace, so as to optimize its use.

Increase your productivity

Whether you choose to install a terrace shelter ora pergola, you’ ll gain in productivity by landscaping your terrace. In summer, when you set up tables and chairs outside, you need to put them away at the end of the day to keep them in good condition for as long as possible. It’s true, you can never really predict the weather overnight, and it would be a shame to ruin them.

Whereas with a shelter or pergola, your outdoor furniture will be protected and you won’t have to put everything away. You’ll save time and money, and be more productive the next day.


The different types of terrace protection for restaurants and cafés

As a specialist in outdoor landscaping for professionals and private individuals, VERANDAIR offers you a wide range of quality products, perfectly adapted to your sector. Discover our tips to help you choose the one that’s right for you.


The pergola

This installation protects your customers from the sun thanks to a more solid structure than a parasol. The pergola can be attached to the facade of your building or be completely free-standing. In this case, it is said to be “self-supporting”.

It is possible to add one or more
sliding bay windows
to act as windbreaks. Depending on your taste, the pergola roof can be flat or sloping. You can also make it retractable. In short, you can customize your pergola to suit your needs and the configuration of your outdoor space.

What’s more, if your restaurant or café is located in an area with a beautiful view, a veranda can be an ideal way to enhance it and create a relaxing space for your customers. They’ll appreciate the view all the more, and at the same time have a great experience of your establishment.

The bioclimatic pergola

For an even more luxurious and practical installation, consider a bioclimatic pergola. Thanks to its adjustable slats, this structure adapts to weather conditions (sun or rain).

It’s very comfortable to use. What’s more, it’s an elegant and stylish
design solution
to rejuvenate a facade and attract customers.

Terrace shelter

Also known as a cold veranda, this is a glass structure that can be fully retracted. The various parts of the shelter move on discreet rails, making it easy to handle.

In this way, you can create a wide opening to leave part of the terrace in the open air, if you wish. So it can be used in the off-season too. What’s more, the fully glazed structure lets light into your bar or restaurant.

Horeca verandas can be adapted to any style of building, from vintage to modern. It allows you to
increase the surface area of your business

Like our other shelters, the Cube can be customized to suit your every need. It opens and closes easily. Installing a small heater means you can use it in cooler weather too.
