With the approach of Spring our thoughts are turning to the outdoors and Summer. And, if there’s one thing we’ve learned over the past couple of years, it’s the importance of our outdoor spaces.

As you start thinking about your outdoor living plans for this Summer, here are some points to ponder!

It’s all about comfort.
What most impacts the comfort of your outdoor space? Is glare the main issue, or are you more concerned about insects? Do your neighbors feel a bit too close? Do extreme temperatures limit your use of the space?

There are shading solutions to help alleviate all these issues, so you can truly enjoy time in your outdoor space. Balancing fabric color and openness factor will address many of these issues. Using “zipper” style shades will keep out the insects. Combining shades with fans or outdoor heaters will keep your space comfy for a longer part of the year.

Your Draper At Home representative will help you find the solution that fits!

Create the space that matches your lifestyle.
What is your outdoor M.O.? Do you like sitting on the porch or patio with a beverage and a book, or do you like to entertain? Maybe you take advantage of the space while working from home.

If you host large parties, consider using shades to create multiple spaces where small groups can gather or enjoy different activities. It’s easy to bring everyone together by raising the shades with the touch of a button.

Make better use of that garage or shed.
Your garage or large shed can double as an entertaining space or be a transition area from the indoors and outdoors. They are perfect for open houses, graduation parties, and rained-out barbeques. For such uses, the FlexShade® ZIP provides additional protection from the elements and neighbors’ prying eyes while still allowing a view-through to the outside.

Bring Hollywood to your back yard.
Back yard movie nights are all the rage, whether that means a display or screen on the patio or a large projection screen by the pool.

Our Nocturne+ E projection screen case is the perfect solution. Its case is weather- and insect-resistant, and the powder coated finish stands up to sun, rain, snow, and whatever else Mother Nature can throw at it. Side cable guides keep the surface steady and flat.

Another idea is to include the AV in your pergola, patio, garage, or other covered structure. Once again you can use FlexShade ZIP shades to block glare and insects.
