Outdoor Shades and Blinds

Outdoor shades, such as solar shades and outdoor roller shades, do a lot for your home. They improve its curb appeal, which is ideal if you’re looking to sell the property. They’ll also reduce glare from outside, making them perfect for installing outside a cinema room or bedroom.

But before we dig into the benefits, we have a crucial question to answer:

What are outdoor shades?

Outdoor shades are similar to rolling sun shades and other blinds. They’re usually made using a woven fabric and are operated by a cord or remote control. The key differences are that you install these types of shades outside your windows, rather than inside. Plus, they tend to be made using tougher materials, which allows them to stand up against exposure to the elements.

There are many reasons you might install outdoor shades:

  • The protection outdoor shades provide extends beyond preventing glare. They also stop harmful UV rays from getting into your home.
  • Outdoor shades boost curb appeal by adding an attractive design element to your home’s exterior. If you’re looking to sell your home, these shades ensure a perfect first impression.
  • The shades act as privacy blinds. Outdoor snoopers won’t be able to see into your home without physically walking up to the window and messing with the blinds.

At Factory Direct Blinds, we offer a huge range of outdoor shades and blinds. Whether you’re looking for standard window blinds, attractive budget blinds, or solar shades designed to keep out the sun, we have what you need.

Better yet, we help you to find the right-sized blinds for your home. Our guides for measuring and installing outdoor shades ensure that the shades you receive fit your home perfectly.

FAQs

How to keep outdoor shades from blowing?

If you find that your outdoor shades, blinds, or other window coverings blow in the wind, you have several possible solutions. You can use padding to stop your outdoor blinds from making noise when they’re blown around. You can also install your window treatment directly to a wall or window frame.

How do you secure outdoor shades from blowing?

Beyond the solutions mentioned above for securing exterior shades, you can try gluing magnets to the post or window casing to which your blinds connect. This magnet catches the metal rods used in your patio shades, keeping them stable when the wind blows.

How to anchor outdoor shades?

If none of the above solutions works, you can try a tie-down kit for your patio blinds. These kits are usually made with a bungee cord that’s designed specifically for outdoor blinds for porch and window treatments. 

How to clean mold off outdoor shades?

As attractive as outdoor blinds for balcony and patio setups are, mold can make them look terrible. Try mixing equal parts water and white vinegar to create a cleaning solution. Wipe the shades down with a clean cloth dampened in the solution and the mold should come off.
