4 Reasons To Put Retractable Screens On Your Bedroom Balcony

If you have a balcony off of your bedroom with a beautiful view, you may not get much enjoyment out of it if mosquitoes bother you or the sun's glare is too irritating when you sit outside. If you want more use from your balcony, consider having retractable screens installed. Here are four reasons you might enjoy having retractable screens on your balcony.

1. Mosquitoes And Other Pests Are Blocked

Screens eliminate the problem of outdoor bugs bothering you while you're on the balcony. That means you can sit outside on a summer evening and enjoy the breeze and the view. A screen blocks mosquitoes, flies, spiders, and any other bugs that might fly or crawl onto your balcony and ruin your outdoor experience. Plus, you'll be able to leave the balcony doors open to let the breeze in your bedroom without letting mosquitoes inside your house.

2. Retractable Screens Have A Tidy Appearance

You may resist the idea of putting up regular screens or shades because they make your home unattractive. However, retractable screens move up and out of sight when you don't need to use them. If you're having a pool party or other gathering in your yard, your guests won't see the screens unless you decide to leave them down.

Even when the screens are down, they're not unattractive, but you may prefer the look of no visible screens, especially if your bedroom balcony is the only place you have them installed.

These screens are installed on tracks, so they are secure, and they don't flop in the breeze or look tacky. You can lower them all the way or just partially, and they always maintain their tidy appearance.

3. Screens Block The Sun

You can buy screens for different reasons, and one is to block the sun. This could allow you to work on your balcony without being bothered by glare on your laptop screen. The screens can even stop glare and sun from entering your bedroom, so you can watch TV with your balcony doors open.

Some screens have a dark color, and some are even made of vinyl, so they are solid. In addition to blocking the sun, these retractable screens provide privacy so you can leave your balcony doors open to make your bedroom seem much larger without your neighbors spying on you.

4. Screens Make Your Balcony Safer

Retractable screens add a bit of safety to your balcony. While you don't want to rely only on screens to keep your kids or pets safe on the balcony, the screens can keep them from accidentally falling off. This provides your pets with a place to enjoy the sun and breeze while being safer on an upper-level balcony.
