Retractable Sunshades

Your patio is perfect, but it needs just one more thing. Have you ever been sitting in a lounge chair, sun glaring down, wishing you could keep the breeze flowing, but turn the sun down just a bit? Have no fear! Retractable sunshades can make your outdoor space feel more comfortable and enjoyable. 

Retractable sunshades affix to your home and provide cover for an outdoor space, like a patio, dining table, or grill station. The best part about them is in the name: you can decide to use the sunshade or retract it, leaving the outdoor space exposed. The transitional nature of retractable sunshades is really appealing because you can utilize your outdoor space in different ways, depending on the weather and your preference. 

If you still want to enjoy sunshine without direct heat, retractable sunshades are a wonderful resource. Retractable sunshades block direct sunlight, making an otherwise toasty area much cooler. The breeze can also flow freely through the patio or outdoor area. Save on sunscreen this summer– and every one after it! 

What about outdoor umbrellas? Should you just get one of those and call it a day? Beach umbrellas, outdoor table umbrellas… all of these could have the same use as retractable sunshades. However, because retractable sunshades cover a much larger area than the average outdoor umbrella, you will have the capacity for greater outdoor enjoyment. Set up your yoga mat or the kids’ toys without fear of crowding. 

DJing your next summer barbecue just got easier. Using a handheld device or anything with a screen will become much less annoying because retractable sunshades reduce glare. No more squinting to see, or fiddling with the brightness setting. Outdoor video chats rejoice.

And on that note… retractable sunshades offer a level of privacy that can make recreating outdoors feel more comfortable. Homes have taken on a new level of importance, and using all available space has become crucial. Retractable sunshades can make outdoor spaces more enticing and extend much-needed usable space when staying home is the norm.
