During this odd and unfamiliar time we’re collectively experiencing, we’ve been encouraged to stay home. As the days pass, we’re all starting to feel a little stir-crazy, wishing we had more options than just moving from our bed to our couch to our dining room table on repeat. 

What if you could expand your options by extending your living space to the outdoors? With limited sources of entertainment and the weather becoming more pleasant by the day, outdoor time is more appealing than ever. As a result, now is the perfect time to invest in outdoor shades or screens as we transition to the warmer months.

Benefits of Outdoor Shades & Screens

Outdoor shades and screens provide many benefits to homeowners, including extended living space, pest-control, and enhanced comfort. Specialty Drapery offers a diverse product line, allowing you to tailor your space’s aesthetic to your design preferences while enjoying the benefits of the outdoors.

  1. Extended Living Space. Outdoor shades and screens add unofficial square footage to your home. If you’re starting to get cabin fever from sitting inside all day, the extra living space created by outdoor shades or screens will be a welcomed addition. Fresh air is known to lift one’s mood and sense of well-being, which is exactly what we need during these uncertain times.
  2. Pest-Control. Unfortunately, along with the warmer weather comes an influx of pests such as mosquitos and gnats. Outdoor screens allow you to continue enjoying your outdoor space into the evening, when these critters are at their most tenacious.
  3. Enhanced Comfort. Although we’re currently enjoying the 60- and 70-degree weather, the sweltering summer months loom in the not-so-distant future. Installing outdoor shades or screens around your porch, patio, or deck helps block the sun’s heat, creating a shaded oasis. It also mitigates glare across computer and mobile device screens for when you’re working from home or streaming “Tiger King.”

Motorized Outdoor Shades & Screens

Control your outdoor shades and screens seamlessly with motorization. There’s no need to fiddle with strings! Specialty Drapery proudly offers Rainier motorized window products, powered by Somfy controls. Rainier boasts an extensive product line, and each order is made custom to your space. Additionally, these motorized shades and screens are easy to operate and maintain. When the sun or bugs come out, simply press a button to continue enjoying your outdoor space.

We’re spending more time at home and temperatures are on the rise. It’s the perfect time to invest in outdoor shades and screens. Extending your living space to the outdoors is an investment that you and your loved ones will thoroughly enjoy in the months ahead, as well as in the years to come.
