Relaxing in the Great Outdoors

Outdoor patio shades, also known as solar and roller shades, are designed to create a space of peace and relaxation. They retain your beautiful outdoor views while reducing heat in the summer, offering warmth in the winter, and keeping pesky insects at bay. And if you live in a busy area, these shades reduce or hide any visual eyesores, enhance your privacy, and add a sound-resistant layer.

These retractable shades can be raised and lowered with the touch of a button or voice command and can be automated to adjust based on the time, temperature, and weather. 

Protected from the Elements

Imagine sitting out on your patio on a late Sunday afternoon, enjoying a shared meal with family and friends with beautiful music emanating from your landscape speaker system. In the distance, you see the clouds begin to form, charting a course toward your home. Usually, you would have to move the gathering inside as the summer storm rolls through. Now, you press a button, lower the shades, and enjoy the beauty of a rainstorm. 

Are you excited about using your new space for barbecues and the upcoming big games? Draper’s outdoor shades can reduce solar heat gain by almost 75% and reduce the temperature by as much as 20 degrees. They also block harmful UV rays and have the Melanoma International Foundation Seal of Approval.

An Enjoyable Dining Experience

Enjoying a meal outdoors can be challenging as mosquito season ramps up and flies descend. When surrounded by insect-resistant fabrics, you can keep insects out and enjoy your outdoor spaces in total comfort. 

If you’re envisioning hard-core mesh that detracts from your home’s beauty, think again. Today, these customizable shades can be precisely color-matched to your specifications, enhanced with custom artwork, and come in thousands of colors and textures. If you can dream it, we can make it a reality.
