Best Ways to Add Privacy to a Patio

One of the joys of being a homeowner is being able to create the perfect environment for your backyard or patio. You can add coverings to enhance your preferred ambiance or sense of style. You can do the same to protect you from mosquitos and environmental elements. And to add to your ease and comfort, you can get creative with coverings to help protect your privacy.

To help you make this easy, here’s a list of the best ways to add a little privacy, to your patio.

1. Shutter or Fabric Screens

Screens are the fastest and one of the most affordable ways to add a secluded living area to your home. They also make your patio more comfortable by blocking sunlight, making it the perfect spot for hosting barbecues and social events.

2. Patio Covers

If you have neighbors with split level homes (or kids next door that love to play with drones), patio covers provide you with a layer of protection against curious eyes and prying overhead technology. They can be installed with shingles that will exactly match the roof of your home.

3. Fabric Canopies

Fabric canopies give you privacy while at the same time giving your patio the look and feel of a luxury vacation destination. They also protect you from the sun’s harmful ultra-violet (UV) rays, providing style and functionality.

4. Pergolas

Pergolas are versatile because they can be covered with either fabric, greenery, or flowers. So no matter your preferences or sense of style, there’s always something to suit your taste. They also have the added benefit of incorporating nature into your surroundings, which makes a nice change for people who have to spend the majority of their time indoors.

5. Retractable Shades

Retractable shades are easy to use. They also allow you to remain outdoors, rain or shine. Furthermore, they have the added benefit of providing extra shade for your home, reducing air conditioning and energy costs.
