Imagine yourself curled up on comfy patio furniture with an ice-cold glass of lemonade and the latest Kristin Hannah novel in-hand. Those carefree days are not far off; in fact, spring has officially made its appearance! After being cooped up inside all winter, homeowners are eager to start spending more time outdoors. Is your patio ready for spring and summer porch sitting? The window treatment and decor consultants at Specialty Drapery can help you create a serene outdoor sanctuary, extending your living space beyond the walls of your home. However, with lead times of four to six weeks, we encourage you to start preparing your outdoor space for spring now.
Two Ways to Upgrade Your Outdoor Space This Spring
Enhance Comfort with Outdoor Shades & Screens
While your patio space doesn’t officially count towards the square footage of your home, your living space certainly expands when your patio is equipped with outdoor shades or screens. Outdoor shades and screens help solve a number of qualms presented by exposed patios, including glare, UV exposure, heat gain, and pests. Installing shades or screens allows you to tailor your environment to the ever-changing conditions of the outdoors. When the sun starts casting glare across your computer screen as you work from home or when the mosquitoes come out at dusk, simply lower the shades to preserve your comfort.
For the ultimate luxury outdoor living experience, opt for motorized shades or screens. Motorization allows you to choreograph the screens from the comfort of your patio furniture with only the lift of a finger. With a built-in screen cleaning system, you can spend more time enjoying your space and less time maintaining it.
Get Cozy with Decorative Pillows
Pillows are fun, inexpensive accessories that you can switch out as often as you like. They can completely transform the look of your space as the seasons change or your preferences evolve. Whether you’re envisioning a Tahitian oasis or a farmhouse front porch à la Chip and Joanna Gaines, the designers at Specialty Drapery can help you achieve that aesthetic. We offer pillows of every shape, size, texture, and color. From bold patterns to neutral tones, pillows from Specialty Drapery will not only beautify your patio but will also create an inviting haven to entertain and relax.
The progressively warmer weather and longer days ahead make now the perfect time to upgrade your patio. With motorized shades or screens and fresh pillows, you’ll want to spend all day lounging in this outdoor extension of your living space. Beginning with your morning coffee to ending the day with your evening cocktail, maximize the time you spend outdoors this season with the help of the design experts at Specialty Drapery.
