Our outdoor areas have become valuable living spaces, and many people want to enhance them to make them homier. At A Shade Above serving Charlotte, NC, we understand how important it is to make the most of our living areas, and we’ll be happy to show you the best blinds and shades for the outdoors.

Places to Use Outdoor Shades

For added privacy, protection from the sun, and a feel of a room away from the house, here are some places to consider adding outdoor treatments:
  • Patio
  • Sunroom
  • Balcony
  • Backyard dining area
  • Hot tub area

Heavy-Duty Solar Shades

The heavy-duty Outdoor Solar Shades in our Corradi Collections come in many textures that carry many opacity levels. When used to surround a patio or sunroom, they can help reduce cooling costs in the summer. All solar shades come standard with a wind-flex tie-down system that helps keep them in place during mild inclement weather situations. However, be sure to respect the heavy-duty outdoor shades If high winds or heavy rain is expected, they might need to be pulled up to protect them.

Child & Pet Safety

Child and pet safety is paramount, so consider your options for outdoor operating systems. Because motorization isn’t yet available on outdoor treatments, for a patio or backyard covering, a crank would be a good option.


Innovation drives Corradi by thinking of new ways to solve challenges through creating new and proprietary window coverings. Our Corradi window products add unique luxury and style to any room while also providing advanced solutions to everyday needs, such as managing light, insulating the window, child safety, sound absorption, motorization technology, and much more.
