Having a backyard patio is a lot of fun in the summer, but without patio shade of some sort, you can almost guarantee to feel the effects of harmful UV rays. You want to be able to spend an ample amount of time outdoors. That means patio covers are a definite must! Here are 3 patio shade ideas for your backyard: 

Awnings as Patio Covers 

Awnings are the perfect patio cover when you’re looking to increase the shade on your backyard patio. Revive Outdoor Living has plenty of customizable awning options for you to choose from. One of the best and most versatile awning types is the retractable awning. With the retractable awning, you can control how much sunlight you would like, and you are able to fully retract it when it is not in use. Or, if you spend a lot of time on your backyard patio, this awning can be fully out to cover you from the harmful UV rays while keeping you cool. 

Screens to add some shade  

If your backyard has a pergola, adding an awning with a screen can be an amazing addition and a great patio shade idea. A screen can protect you from bugs, but most importantly it can provide you with shade in any way that you want it. You can bring it partially down to block the sun from your eyes, or fully down to create a space where kids can play without getting burnt.  

The more custom you can make it, the better! 

Increasing patio shade on a budget doesn’t mean that you have to settle for something less than great. With Revive Outdoor Living, you can make your backyard patio the “chill spot” of your dreams and customize your awnings. There are tons of fabric options and styles for you to choose from, making it easy to customize to your own personal taste and style.
