These days, especially as more and more people enjoy “staycations,” making the most of all the space a home has to offer—both indoors and out—is important. Which is why it’s great that Hunter Douglas, the leader in innovative window treatments, offers blinds and shades that are great for enclosing patios and balconies. Speak with a trained consultant at Bretz Interiors in Lakewood. We can help you determine the best solutions for enclosing your outdoor space.
Where You Might Use Outdoor Shades
For added privacy, protection from the sun, and additional living space, here are some places to consider adding outdoor treatments:
- Backyard dining area
- Hot tub area
The heavy-duty Outdoor Solar Shade in the Alustra® Collection of Woven Textures® can help reduce cooling costs in the summer months. The shades come in many textures and different opacites. They add privacy and control the sun while lowered. All solar shades come with a wind-flex tie-down system that helps keep them in place during mildly inclement weather.
Tips for Outdoors Shades or Blinds
- For child and pet safety, consider your options for operating systems. For the outdoors, a crank is a good option.
- Remember that your neighbors might not want to see your favorite color from their backyard. Be considerate as you choose your color!
- Texture: The heavier the texture, the more outdoor particles will stick to them. Test the sample to see whether leaves and debris stick to the fabric
- If you have a patio with a view, make sure you can see through the fabric to enjoy what you love to look at even when the blind is down
- If high winds or heavy rain is expected in your area, pull up your shades to protect them. If treated properly, they will give you years of privacy and enjoyment
