With warm weather on the way, an outdoor deck is an excellent place for relaxing and hosting friends alike. A deck can be a great focal point for the exterior of your home, and a great place to install beautiful custom window treatments. Whether they’re fixed to the home or a part of the outdoor deck itself, you have tons of stunning options for sprucing things up.
Louver Shop of Pittsburgh is your one-stop shop for beautiful custom window treatments. If you want to upgrade your outdoor deck, new shutters or shades might be just what you’re looking for. Let’s take a look at 7 outdoor deck window treatments that will transform your deck into a centerpiece for the summer.
Roller or Roman Shades Can Keep Things Light and Breezy
1. Roller Shades
2. Roman Shades
Even though the deck is an outdoor space, lots of window treatments can be installed along hanging beams similar to those you’d find on a pergola. They can offer a sense of structure without restricting the open air feel that makes outdoor decks popular spaces to host from. Louver Shop of Pittsburgh offers many richly textured shades including our Designer Roller Shades that can soften harsh sunlight without putting up walls.
Beautiful wooden decks could make the Provenance® Woven Wooden Shades your treatment of choice. Built from high-quality natural materials like bamboo, these Roman shades effortlessly filter out the strong sunlight of midday, helping keep your deck cool. They establish a sense of upscale, yet rustic beauty. And with the LiteRise® system, you can quickly adjust them by hand without a traditional cord or wand.
Exterior Shutters Offer Architectural Detail
3. Bahama Shutters
4. Louvered Shutters
You can also bolster the style of nearby windows with new exterior shutters. Custom shutters add to the visual delight of an outdoor deck without making it seem like you’re struggling to bring the indoors outdoors. Louver Shop of Pittsburgh exterior shutters are the perfect choice whether you prefer fashion or function. For example, traditional louvered shutters offer a regal, yet inviting appeal.
But as an outdoor space, your deck can also be a chance to experiment. If you’re trying out a more tropical feel, why not try some custom Bahama shutters?
