Staying in your outdoor area shouldn’t mean being directly exposed to the harsh rays of the sun the entire time. With a variety of materials to choose from, you can add shade to a specific part of your outdoor space and be protected against the heat. From screens made of canvas or fabric to freestanding structures like pergolas, your options are wide and varied.
Asher Lasting Exteriors, a trusted provider of window replacement and exterior remodeling services, lists four kinds of shade that you can use for your outdoor space.
Made with thin wood slats, a pergola blocks a good amount of sun. At the same time, it also lets some rays poke through so you can still enjoy the warmth that comes with a sunny weather.
Curtains do just look great on windows; they can be a charming addition to your outdoor area as well. Don’t worry because you don’t have to splurge on outdoor curtains. You can use canvas tarps, which can be just as effective in adding a little shade.
A sail shade is a triangular-cut fabric that keeps you protected against the sun’s rays. It has eyelets punched in the corners allowing you to attach the shade to poles or nearby trees with the use of a strong rope or twine.
A lattice canopy with lush vines can add a romantic or rustic vibe depending on how you’ll decorate your outdoor space. But whichever type of setting you aim for, this will surely create a beautiful outdoor scene while providing the shade you need.
