If you like the outdoors, spending time on the terrace or balcony at your home is a great way to enjoy the fresh air and spend time with family and friends. But sometimes windy weather or lack of privacy can create a challenge. Consider installing a windbreak to make your outdoor space more comfortable. Depending on your style, budget, and space requirements, you’ll find a wide variety of available options. Here are some practical ideas you can employ.

Types of Windbreaks

Glass Railing: Glass railings are a great option if you do not want to block the view from your outdoor space. Replacing traditional railings with glass or acrylic panels will add protection against the elements as well as sleek, modern curb appeal to your property.

Retractable windbreak: A retractable windbreak is a good solution if you do not want to add a permanent wall or railing to your space. A retractable windbreak functions like a horizontal window shade allowing for easy storage when it is not in use. They are available in polyester, textile fibers or plastic. Premium options are waterproof and treated to resist UV rays.

Trellis with climbing plants: Consider creating a windbreak with climbing vines and plants for a more natural aesthetic. First, install a trellis or pergola structure to support the plants. If your working at ground level, plant your climbing vines directly in the ground otherwise line planters along the edge of the balcony.

Bamboo shades: Rolled bamboo shades are a great option if you have a covered balcony with open sides. Bamboo shades are a windbreak you can open and close as needed. They are easy to install and come in a wide variety of styles and dimensions.

Finding the perfect windbreak for your home requires planning and budget considerations. If you need to hire a contractor to help with your project, ask your real estate agent for local recommendations.
