outdoor drapery rods 1Memorial Day weekend, the kids are getting out of school and everyone is busy planning their fun summer activities!  Spending time outside is a rite of passage of the summertime and in recent years the outdoor living room has emerged as a popular home design trend.  An outdoor area can consist of anything from an outdoor patio with a table and chair set to elaborate outdoor living areas that include feature furniture, outdoor drapes and hardware and other décor items.

Outdoor drapery and hardware are also gaining in popularity.  If you haven’t discovered this outdoor accessory yet, they serve multiple purposes.  Use them to divide a large outdoor area into smaller, separate spaces when you are entertaining guests as it creates a cozy atmosphere. Hanging curtains will give you more cooling shade on sunny days.  It will also help to prolong the life of your outdoor furniture.

As great as outdoor drapes can be there are a few things you must be aware of prior to using them in your outdoor living room.  Due to being exposed to the elements for prolonged periods of time it is important to choose not only drapes that are weather resistant, but also drapery rods and other necessary hardware.  Be sure to use drapery hardware that is specifically designed to be used in outdoor situations.  Metropolis Iron’s large line of outdoor drapery medallions and hardware will stand the test of time in even the harshest weather that summertime can throw it’s way!
