Privacy is a luxury these days because we’re living physically closer to each other owing to lack of space. But there are ways to achieve privacy if not by building high walls. Outdoor privacy screens are how to go about it. Outdoor privacy screens also can be used to decorate your patio and also give you a sense of privacy and comfort. Privacy screens made by several different materials. Wooden screens look and feel natural and since they’re mostly used in outdoor settings, this helps them blend with the environment. Carved designs were once hugely popular with ornate motifs gracing the surface and giving spaces a royal touch. However, recent times and trends have given way to simpler designs featuring horizontal or vertical slats – similar to louvered shutters – with sturdy wooden or metal frames and customization options to fit them on tops of walls, as gates, and as outdoor shower screens.
Metal privacy screens are another great choice because they’re extremely strong. Outdoor screens are subject to wind, dust, rain and pollutants, all of which can slowly destroy them. And though metal in its natural state is prone to rust and corrosion, the screens are treated (galvanized) to minimize these effects. Regular maintenance will also see them last longer. Like wood, metal screens can take on various patterns.
