Utilizing Curtains on your Pergola



Summertime is the best time, but while the days are long, the summer months are unfortunately rather short. Don’t let the heat keep you from going outside; with the creative use of outdoor curtains on your pergola, you can have the privacy you need this summer, while keeping both the sun, wind, and bugs out. This will not only keep you and your family safe but will protect expensive outdoor furniture.

There are massive differences between indoor and outdoor curtains, in both style and fabric type. For outdoor curtains, our favorite options feature cotton canvases, polyester blends, acrylic and olefin. In fact, Olefin is considered a prime fabric to use. Research has shown that because of its lightweight, soft, and extremely durable weave, Olefin does not fade and is sure to last.

Providing Shade from the Sun
Sitting outside in the summer heat can be tiring. Adding modern curtains to your pergola will keep you safe from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Not only is this perfect for a quiet relaxing day with the grandparents, but outdoor curtains also allow you and your guests to have an enjoyable day in the backyard during the harshest of summer months. Wayfair carries semi-sheer outdoor curtain panels that would be perfect for your pergola. We suggest choosing lighter colors, such as white and ivory, to attract the sun less, therefore making these single curtain panels a great choice for your pergola.



Keeping your Neighbor’s Peering Eyes Away
If your backyard is your haven during the summer, think about adding some curtains to help keep it that way. Summer mornings are the perfect time to curl up outside with the perfect book and a cup of coffee, far from the bothers of anyone or anything. Adding curtains to your pergola will help for you to keep your time yours. In addition to protecting you from the sun, these sheer curtains can also be used as a privacy screen. They are reasonably priced at less than $22 each. How can you not invest in these?

Is the summer wind ruining your outdoor time?
Investing in a curtain for your pergola will help keep the wind to a minimum. A cool breeze is sometimes inviting, but other times, the wind makes it hard to enjoy your company and “talking over the wind” makes it difficult to hold a conversation. Adding a semi-sheer shade to your pergola will make your outdoor time with family and friends more pleasant. Don’t let easy fixable problems be the reason you are not enjoying the summertime.


Protecting your furniture from the Sunshine and Animals
One major concern most homeowners have with their backyard furniture is that with the amount of money they spend on their outdoor furniture and décor, the last thing they want is for them to be ruined by the sun’s harmful UV rays and wild animals. Adding in curtains to your pergola will help to ensure that your furniture is safe. By utilizing outdoor curtains, you are giving your outdoor furniture the protection it needs, allowing the colors to stay bright and fade-free.  As a bonus, keeping the curtains extended also keeps raccoons, squirrels, and other damaging outdoor wildlife from destroying it.

No matter the reason you want to add curtains to your pergola, there is an option for everyone. Let Four Seasons Sunrooms & Windows help you find the perfect outdoor solution for all your needs, wants and desires. Contact us today for a FREE no-obligation design consultation.
