Patio shades are a quick, inexpensive way for you to start enjoying your patio space. These patio shades not only block the sun, they also block wind. Available in an array of colors, these shades can span up to 20 feet in length and can be motorized to operate at the touch of a remote.

This is a cool idea for an outdoor patio, porch, or deck. You can roll them down for privacy or when the sun is shining right in. It would look great if they were all closed at night and there was seating and soft lighting.
