Outdoor Curtain Shopping Tips
Measure Your Space: Put your trusty tape measure to use before investing in outdoor curtains. Measure the length and width necessary to shroud your covered deck or patio with privacy.
Materials Matter: Not all curtains are created equal. Wind, rain and sun create the perfect storm to wreak havoc on indoor-grade fabrics and will leave you with tattered, mildew-ridden curtains. Its paramount that your outdoor curtains are outdoor-rated materials for them to last you for years to come. The top outdoor-friendly fabrics are acrylic, polyester, canvas and olefin.
Consider Your Location: Consider where you plan on installing outdoor curtains and the purpose they will serve in that location. Do you want outdoor curtains to block out the rambunctious kiddos playing next door? Add noise-canceling curtains to your shopping list ASAP. Are you hoping to create a private area to lay out on a sunny afternoon? Solid or semi-sheer curtains will do the trick. Do you want to add an elegant, textural element to your primary bedroom balcony? Sheers are the answer. Use the privacy and aesthetic you desire as your guide and select curtains that cater to that aspiration.
Virgin Vs Recycled Polyester
Originally, all polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable but we are switching to only using recycled polyester. The good thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without negatively affecting the quality of our products. When we make products from recycled polyester, we give a second life to material that is not biodegradable and reduce the amount that may otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Instead, PET and other sources of polyester are used to make textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps.Recycled polyester is just as good as virgin polyester in terms of looks, quality and function, and produces about 50% less in CO2 emissions. And the material is just as clean and safe in every way.
Best Sheer: Nicetown White Outdoor Sheer Curtain
Sheer outdoor curtains are ideal when you want to keep bugs out while maintaining a bright, open feel. These curtain panels come with a rope tie so you can easily pull them back when your patio’s not in use. The tabs along the top attach with hook-and-loop tape, so you can remove the curtains without taking down the whole rod.

Some Challenges With Recycled Polyester
Recycled polyester makes us less dependent on oil. The amount we convert, is equal to the amount of virgin fossil fuel we eliminate from our polyester raw material .With some exceptions, the challenge is not the conversion of polyester into recycled itself, but to make it available to everyone by keeping it affordable. Buying low environmental impact products often comes with a higher price tag. We want to change that by working to make recycled polyester products more affordable and accessible to the many people.

Our Take On Polyester
Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions. The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planets natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products. In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.
Best Acrylic: Sunbrella Awning Stripe Grommet Outdoor Curtain
Acrylic Sunbrella fabric, which repels mold, mildew, stains, and water, gives these outdoor curtains extra durability. The UV-protective material also resists fading, so the striped design will wear well over time.
