Balcony privacy
July 21, 2008 9:34 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for an outdoor shade/blind to use on my balcony.

So I'm trying to find a specific product but am just having no luck at all. Perhaps you've seen such a thing? Let me tell you exactly what I'm looking for...

My apartment has a small, 8'x8' balcony and I'd like to hang a shade or blind on one of those 8' sides to give myself a little privacy. It needs to be all-weather, and I'd like to get something that is brown or tan colored. I've seen such things on other people's balconies before, and some look to be made from bamboo or a similar type of material that still allows some light through. That would be ideal for me because it would fit with the decor of the unit.

Any idea where I can find a product like this?

Google is your friend. It looks like they're even at Target.

I know that my apartment building doesn't allow curtains/shades/blinds for use on balconies and has made people take them down in the past. You might want to check on that before you make your purchase.

I got both of mine at Pearl River, and they have held up well.
