To make an outdoor room out of an empty space, simply put up a freestanding canopy. The canopy provides shade and minimal structure for an outdoor room. An area rug helps to further outline the space and a matching couch and chair set leave the room feeling cohesive. Attach curtains to the canopy for additional shade and privacy. Planters on either side of the canopy's entrance and stepping-stones leading to the structure help the space feel a bit more grand and permanent./
Shade sails are an innovative and aesthetically pleasing way to create shaded spaces outside of the home or business. At home, they allow you to cover your patio, swimming pool area, gardens, children's play areas, cars and other vehicles, and virtually any outdoor area that you would like to be protected from the sun.
Shade sails are designed to provide outdoor protection from the sun and use a flexible membrane, tensioned between three or more anchor points, similar in form to a ships sail, hence the name. Sun canopies and sun awnings are designed to provide the same protection but are just slightly different in concept. This article discusses all three.
