With summer weather on the way, an outdoor deck is a great place for relaxing and hosting friends alike. A deck can be a great focal point for the exterior of your home, and a great place to install beautiful custom window treatments. Whether they’re fixed to the home or a part of the outdoor deck itself, you have tons of attractive options for sprucing things up.
Louver Shop of Columbia is your one-stop shop for amazing custom window treatments. If you want to upgrade your outdoor deck, new shutters or shades could be just what you’re searching for. Let’s take a look at 7 outdoor deck window treatments that will transform your deck into a centerpiece for your summer.
Roller or Roman Shades Can Keep Things Light and Breezy
1. Roller Shades
2. Roman Shades
Even though a deck is an outdoor space, many window treatments can be installed along hanging beams like those you’d find on a pergola. They can provide a sense of structure without limiting the open air feel that makes outdoor decks popular spaces to host from. Louver Shop of Columbia offers many richly textured shades such as our Designer Roller Shades that can diffuse harsh sunlight without putting up walls.
Beautiful wooden decks may make the Provenance® Woven Wooden Shades your treatment of choice. Made from high-quality natural materials like bamboo, these Roman shades effortlessly filter out the strong sunlight of midday, helping keep your deck cool. They add a sense of upscale, yet rustic beauty. And with the LiteRise® system, you can quickly adjust them by hand without a traditional cord or wand.
Exterior Shutters Offer Architectural Detail
3. Bahama Shutters
4. Louvered Shutters

Custom shutters can add to the visual delight of an outdoor deck without making it seem like you’re struggling to bring the indoors outdoors. Louver Shop of Columbia exterior shutters are the perfect choice whether you prefer fashion or function. For example, traditional louvered shutters offer a regal, yet inviting appeal.
But as an outdoor space, your deck could also be a chance to experiment. If you’re looking for a more tropical feel, why not add some custom Bahama shutters?
