Key Considerations

  • Pick a neutral hue to match your home’s exterior.
  • Choose a tighter weave to block more light (blackout) or go with a looser one for extra airflow.
  • If your porch or patio has posts, columns, or railing, it will be better to install the shades between these architectural features.
  • Don’t scrub the shades when cleaning.
  • Use light blockers to cover light gaps.
