Being outdoors, relaxing in a comfy chair, sipping a cool drink, hanging out with family and friends — that’s living the dream on a patio or deck. But when too much sun turns that dream into a scorching nightmare and forces a retreat indoors, it’s time to find a shade solution.

Whether you’re looking for something quick and easy or want to put your building skills to work, each of these sun-blocking ideas will get you back to enjoying your outdoor retreat. Shade products vary widely in cost. Don’t let cost alone determine what you buy or build. The product should be solidly built to endure the sun, heat and weather it will be exposed to.
