Curb Appealing Porch Curtains and Shade Ideas

Porch curtains and shades not only offer comfortable shade and extra privacy but also protection from the weather and welcoming curb appeal.

Mary and I love the shades on our porch as they greatly reduce the summer heat on the front of our home. Installed properly, both porch curtains and porch shades can withstand the elements to provide protection from wind and rain.
