There is something about hosting your event in an outdoor patio area that makes it special. Many restaurants have beautiful patio areas, making them the perfect spot for birthday or anniversary parties, showers or rehearsal dinners. Whatever your special occasion, you want it to go smoothly for all of your guests.
Comfort is a big factor, and is sometimes overlooked. It is important that the outdoor venue be pleasant regardless of the weather or time of day. While you may not have control over the weather, it is helpful to scout out the patio covering beforehand, to ensure that there is some measure of control in regards to sunlight, wind or even rain.
A covered patio area that uses louvers to control sunlight, air circulation and provided protection is ideal. Louvers allow sunlight to be redirected, depending on what time of day it is. For example, if your event is in the middle of the afternoon, direct overhead sunlight can be harsh. Louvers can be closed partially or all the way to provide shade or redirect the glare.
In the later part of the afternoon, the light is much more pleasant. The louvers can be opened to allow more light and to increase airflow.
These are important considerations when planning an event. While decor and food are of course primary considerations, things like temperature, ventilation and light are huge factors in the comfort and enjoyment of your guests.
