Outdoor curtains can be used on the front porch to make the space more inviting, a bit more private or to simply provide shade from the sun.  This is one of the most innovative outdoor curtain ideas. Hang them on the ends of the porch or, if you have columns, you can hang panels at each one for an interesting finishing touch.

There is something very fresh about sheers blowing in a summer breeze.  You can create this by hanging sheers or light outdoor curtains from pergolas, gazebos or other outdoor structures.  Tie them up when you want a more open space or let them loose to blow in the breeze for a casual vibe.
