It feels wonderful knowing that your outdoor deck allows you to spend quality time with your friends and family. However, no matter how much you want the world to know how amazing this part of your home is, you may still want some privacy. Fortunately, there are ways to do so, most of which won’t hurt your budget.
Sentry Exteriors, one of the leading local roofing contractors in the local area, also specializes in other exterior installations such as building custom decks. We discuss in today’s post these four ways to add privacy to your outdoor deck.1. Drop Cloth Curtains
Old drop cloths can be repurposed into fashionable outdoor curtains. Make sure it doesn’t have stains that may detract to their beauty. You can spray-paint them to create a simple yet bold pattern. Hang them using cheap curtain rods.2. Recycle Shutters
Utilize old shutters and tie them up into an existing wire fence to create a wall that instantly gives your deck privacy. Such a fence can be removed or rearranged to whatever configuration you like at any time. The same fixtures can also be turned into a folding partition that can stand on its own. Just attach the panels to their hinges and you are good to go.3. Privacy Plants
Deck and gutter companies like ours recommend privacy plants as an attractive solution for decks that are too overexposed. These can take a long time to mature, however, but once they grow, they provide a natural wall that conceals everything on top of the deck.4. Bamboo Plants
Speaking of plants, you can plant bamboo along the perimeter of the deck, serving as a green fence. These plants grow high as well while bringing an exotic charm to your outdoor space. Be sure not to pick invasive species of bamboo.
