I love cabana curtains and I use them quite often.
There is something fun and relaxing about bringing the indoors out and creating an open feeling in your terrace. It may seem decadent to some. But its a practical way to expand your living space and enjoy the summer weather. You can buy ready made packs of outdoor cabana curtains and simply hang them on a rod for the summer. They can be in sheer or in solid Sunbrella fabrics and they are washable.
Create an outdoor living room where you can relax for the next few months while the weather is hot. The beauty is that when the fall comes, you can just remove them, wash them and put them away until next summer. They are not expensive. As a matter of fact, many retailers such as Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware sell cabana curtains ready made.
It's summer! Hang your cabana curtains and enjoy the outdoors!
