If your patio gets more sun than you’d like most of the day, here are 5 ideas to bring a shade to your patio.
Steel net trellis
While most homes have a trellis only as a space-saving alternative garden plot, go a step further by creating a growing shade provider through a steel net trellis. Aside from bringing shade to your patio, you’ll also get a privacy fence when angled the right way.
A pretty addition to your patio, a pergola gives you shade by letting it grow on its trellises. Choose a flowering vine and you’ll have growing shade looking lovelier too with its blooms overhead. Aside from a patio cover, small pergolas can also be attached on your windows or a standalone garden structure.
A flexible natural material, you can have thin bamboo strips fashioned for a screen, a hanging panel, or even a curved dome. Bamboo blinds are perfect for the minimalist, those with a small space, and those going for the rustic look on their patio.
Bring a modern look to your patio with a shade sail stretched over your patio. With its outstretched corners, bring shade to the furthest corners of your space without making it feel claustrophobic. You can change the sail according to your gathering, or line it up with lights for a more festive look. When night time comes, you can easily take it off in favor of the starlit sky overhead.
A steady structure that’ll endure for a long time, keep your patio clean and protected from any weather changes with a patio cover. Aside from its durability a solid patio cover can be designed to fit seamlessly with the rest of your home and customized to extend your roofline.
