One of the first things you should do as soon as summer comes into the picture is change the curtains. Get those heavy things down and replace them with something a bit more cheerful and lightweight. Let the sun in and prepare to prepare many relaxing evenings in your living room or on the deck, shielded from the mosquitos and the heat by your beautiful curtains.
Turn the front deck into a more intimate and comfortable setting by hanging long fabric curtains. Even if they stay tied to the columns they’ll still greatly change the ambiance.
And if you have a roofed terrace or a gazebo, some light-colored curtains can help turn the space into an inviting and cozy seating area, perfect for entertaining guests in the evenings.
Outdoor curtains are not just aesthetically pleasing. They can also offer privacy or shade if needed, although in the evenings there may not be the need for any of these things. Still, they’ll make your deck look more refined and elegant.
White curtains are very popular for summer designs and decors but they’re not the only option. A rustic setting, for example, could look better with colored curtains that feature a warm, earthy tone.

And let’s not forget about the indoor spaces. Here, the curtains should be breezy and more lightweight so you don’t feel completely disconnected from the outside areas.
