Buying guide for an outdoor door curtain

As we told you at the beginning, an outdoor door curtain has many benefits in general. It serves to prevent sunlight from damaging the door itself. (for example, if it is made of wood, it may lose that shine or it may look older than it is). It also helps to put up a kind of barrier for insects, especially flies, mosquitoes, wasps and bees, preventing them from entering the house at least in droves. And, of course, it gives you a break from the temperature.

But, when buying it, there are several factors to take into account to get it right. And among the most important are the following:

Material

Since we are talking about an outdoor curtain, you should consider materials that are durable outdoors. In this sense, the best would be polyester, treated fabric or PVC.

Size

Another point to consider is the size of the curtain. This must at least match the size of the door (width and length) to really protect it.

In some cases it can be shorter, but no less wide If you don't want to have a problem with it not covering it completely.

Style

In the market you will find a wide variety of models of different styles. They may be transparent, opaque, strip curtains... And in turn they can have sliding panels, magnetic closures, weights...

To this You should also add maintenance to keep it clean. and to prevent any damage it has from becoming worse and rendering it unusable.

Price

Finally, you would have the price of the curtains. And here the truth is that there is something for all budgets because from ten euros you can find it. But to go buy it, I recommend that you first think about the previous factors because all of them will determine the final price of this curtain (and your safety).
