Nearly every year, it seems Puxatawney Phil predicts winter will last a little longer, but the calendar officially tells us that spring is here. And if your house is anything like ours, that means the honey-do list has grown to include lots of outdoor projects. At Curtain-Tracks, we like to suggest you move one of those projects to the top of the list: Adding Curtains to Your Pergola. This outdoor project makes for a great first spring project for a few reasons.
BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Adding curtains to your pergola is easier than it sounds plus it gives a lot of bang for your buck. Simply adding a curtain track and some durable curtains, and your outdoor living space transforms from drab to classy. You can a lot of fabric to create a lush, layered effect. For a light, airy, and beachy feel, try using a sheer fabric that can easily blow in the breeze. For a more rustic look, try a textured fabric like burlap that will add great depth to the space. A simple and rustic tie back such as twine or even a small cut of the same fabric will allow the curtains to be out of the way when you don’t need them but still add another layer of design.
A PLACE TO RELAX
We suggest bumping this project to the top of your honey-do list so you can create a cozy retreat to enjoy after a long day of yard work (and all of the other to-do items on your list). Imagine mowing and weeding the yard in between soccer games this weekend and then being able to sit back with an adult beverage to admire your hard work. Would it be more relaxing underneath your bare pergola that needs a coat of stain or would it be more relaxing behind fresh curtains blowing in the wind? We know which we’d prefer as we toast our family for a job well done.
STAND UP TO THE ELEMENTS
Not only are Curtain-Tracks products exceptional for changing the aesthetics of your patio, but they are functional as well. Using our plastic tracks for outdoor use is a great choice because they won’t rust in the elements. You could also try our steel hooks for the same reason; they won’t rust and the look is simply classic.
So, the next time you are looking at your to-do list, consider drawing an arrow to the top of the list from the “update pergola” item. You won’t be sorry. And, bonus! We will help you place the order so you don’t forget any measurements or hardware. Heck, you can even call us right from your patio: 1-888-434-7444.
