Striped outdoor curtains come in many colors, patterns and fabrics and can be used to soften the appearance of an outdoor area or to protect those within the area with mosquito curtains, other insects and overly curious neighbors. They also add ambiance and, if it’s hanging inside a porch, slow down the appeal. Depending on the way they are hung, exterior curtains can be moved out of the way when you do not need them. They are also cheaper than blinds or curtains. Choose striped outdoor curtains of sufficient width so that the total width is one and a half times as wide as the width of the box. This ensures that there will be enough fabric to be attractive back when the curtains are open. Thread tension bars through the cloth bag or tabs at the top of the curtains. Connect two or more rods with carpenters for longer extensions. Adjust the tension bars in place between the walls or beams of the porch. No need for hardware is necessary since the springs located in the bars must keep the rods in place. Place striped outdoor curtains by Velcro by purchasing curtains with a loop-backed double velcro strip stitched to the top of the curtain.
