Turn your outdoor living space from sweltering to stunning with the addition of exterior shades. While most people think of window treatments as an interior design element, outdoor shades offer many benefits for creating an enjoyable outdoor entertaining area. From blocking harsh sunlight to adding privacy and style, integrating shades into your patio, deck, or balcony can completely transform the ambiance.
Enjoy UV Protection and Temperature Control
Stay Protected from Rain, Wind, and Weather
Look for weather-resistant outdoor shades that can withstand the elements. Materials like Sunbrella fabric have a high level of water repellence, mildew resistance, and colorfastness. For windy locations, choose shades with a beaded chain, weighted bottom bar, and wraparound side channels to prevent billowing and damage. Motorized shades make it easy to retract your shades at the push of a button when bad weather hits.

Block Heat Gain on Windows and Doorways
In addition to overhead coverage, don’t forget to shade any windows and doorways that open to your patio or deck. Frame-mounted roller shades are perfect for sliding doors, while segmented shades can be designed for large spans of multi-panel doors. For windows, consider Bahama shutters which angle downward to block direct sun penetration into the home. Keep your indoor spaces cooler by blocking solar heat gain.
Outdoor shade structures like these allow you to enjoy your exterior living space during more hours of the day. With protection from rain, wind, and UV rays, exterior shades extend your outdoor living season. Get ready to transform your patio, porch, or deck into a comfortably shaded oasis for entertaining and relaxation.
