In this fall season, enjoying the bright sun in an outdoor space could be a great idea. A shady outdoor retreat is now easier than ever, with a number of shade options available. No matter the size of your outdoor space and of course your budget, there is a shade solution available. From outdoor umbrellas to external awnings and blinds, there are tons of ways to create pretty shade and protect yourself and your family.
Whether you’re looking for ways to keep your home inviting this fall or you want to transform an outdoor space into the ultimate entertaining area, these stylish shade solutions should have you considered.
1. The oh-so-pretty umbrella
A simple umbrella is a pretty goodie because it gives you shade in an instant, and fortunately, there’s one for every budget. The standard umbrella with a center pole is forever being reimagined in a host of new colors and patterns, so it’s easy to find one that suits your style. However, don’t take up space in the center of your table and are made in much larger sizes. If it works great for your garden, then consider a wall-mounted umbrella with a swing arm. Finally, you can adjust the area that gets shaded throughout the day.
2. Friendly Gazebo
Plenty of the latest gazebos enable you to create a complete outdoor room. And increasingly more have the appearance of a permanent structure, yet can be erected or dismantled in minutes. If you are looking for something on-trend, consider the butterfly-style gazebo.
3. Smart Awnings
Awnings provide a smart way of blocking out direct sunlight and creating shade outside your home. Basically, they extend the eaves of the home, removing the effect of direct sunlight from above. This contributes to heat reduction inside the home, which can lessen the need for home cooling and so reduce energy bills.
4. Simple Shades Cloth Sails
Shade cloth sails are an inexpensive and adaptable way to add shade to your outdoor areas. You can cut them and stretch them into various shapes and install them over a range of locations like decks, courtyards, and terraces, without the time or cost involved in engineering and constructing conventional solid structures such as pergolas or solid roof additions.
