Shady Business: Picking the Perfect Patio or Deck Shades for Summer

Outdoor Shades, Shades, Treatments

As the summer sun begins to blaze here in the Piedmont, your patio can quickly go from a relaxing oasis to an unbearable hot spot. But don’t let the heat drive you indoors! With the right outdoor patio shades, you can create a cool and comfortable environment to enjoy all season long. In fact, picking the perfect patio or deck shades this summer doesn’t need to be a difficult or time-consuming task and can even be enjoyable.

After you’ve read through the options, we would love the opportunity to serve you and your family if we can assist you with your project.

Consider the Material

Outdoor shades come in various materials, each with its own benefits. Solar shades made from high-tech fabrics can block UV rays while still allowing you to enjoy your view. Natural materials like bamboo or woven woods offer a rustic charm and can provide excellent shade, but may not be as durable as synthetic options.

Think About Durability

Your outdoor shades will face the elements, so it’s crucial to choose materials that are weather-resistant and easy to clean. Look for shades treated to resist mold, mildew, and fading. High-quality synthetics or coated fabrics will stand up best against the summer sun.

Reflect on Style

Outdoor shades should complement your home’s exterior and your patio’s decor. Whether you prefer a modern look with sleek roller shades or a more traditional feel with Roman shades, there’s a style to match your aesthetic.

Consider Motorization

The ease of use is key for outdoor shades. Options like motorized shades can be controlled with the touch of a button, perfect for when you’re lounging poolside and need quick relief from the sun. Manual options like roller shades or retractable awnings are also popular and can be easily adjusted.

Measure for Coverage

Consider not only the size of your patio but also the angle of the sun at different times of day. Before purchasing, having a precise measurement is critical which is why it is a free part of our Professional Process.
