As cooler weather approaches, you may be looking for ways to extend the usefulness of your outdoor living or entertaining space. Clear, vinyl curtains offer an easy and affordable means of doing just that.

Clear vinyl offers exceptional clarity and flexibility when it comes to maintaining an outdoor feel while providing protection from colder temperatures, wind, snow, rain and pests.  Vinyl curtains can be added to nearly any structure with a roof using a curtain tracking system or heavy duty Velcro tape and removed just as easily. Less expensive than screens, vinyl systems also create an extra layer of insulation between your patio and main structure reducing energy consumption.

Vinyl curtains are also easy to clean and maintain, requiring just a quick wipe down with mild soap and water every few months. During warmer months, or in the dead of winter, the curtains can be removed and easily stored, just be sure to remove them when the temperatures are above 0 degrees Fahrenheit as the vinyl can crack if you attempt to fold it in extreme cold.

Vinyl curtains are an ideal solution for any location, residential or commercial, that needs some protection from the elements, but would still like to create an outdoor environment with an indoor climate. Hotels, resorts and restaurants that boast beautiful views can continue to provide them to their patrons and homeowners can continue to enjoy their outdoor spaces as well. Advances in materials has even made it possible for vinyl curtains to be used in conjunction with space heaters to make your outdoor space usable even in the coldest winter months, while curtain tracking systems and zippered openings, make for ease of use and accessibility to the space.
