If you do much reading on the Internet, you probably come across a “listicle” at least once a day. You know, lists of things that you must know or do to improve your life. For instance, “10 Life Hacks to Save an Hour a Day” or “14 Ways to Get (or get rid of) a Boyfriend.” So we thought we’d give you a listicle of our own as a way to celebrate the upcoming 4th of July holiday. Keeping with the theme of the 4th, the first task was to come up with how long this list should be. 1776 pieces of life-altering advice? 240 tips for the perfect cookout? Well, no. We aren’t that ambitious, so we’re going to go with 4 tips for how Retracting Solutions can make your next 4th of July party much more enjoyable.
1. Retractable Screens for Covered Patios: When you have all your guests gathered on your lovely balcony or patio and the glare of the sun becomes unbearable and all the citronella candles you bought aren’t helping with the bugs, you can offer instant comfort with the touch of a button as your Phantom retractable motorized screens appear from seemingly nowhere to ease the glare but still preserve the look and feel of being outside. The gadget gurus in your crowd will be impressed as well.
2. Sunshades for Balconies and Patios: If you have a gorgeous view of the water or mountains or your expert landscaping, but need to offer your guests some cooler temperatures during your party without blocking the view, the Insolroll Oasis sun shade is a perfect solution. Or, maybe you live in a multi-unit building and need to protect your party guests from inquiring neighbors. This versatile product can also offer you a level of privacy an open balcony doesn’t have.
3. Convert your Garage: If you have a small living space and don’t feel that it is made for entertaining, you have some options with the use of a Phantom retractable screen installed on your garage. No one wants to attend a summer party in a dark and stuffy garage, but when you raise the garage door and lower the retractable screen, you’ve created a unique party space full of natural light and summer breezes.
4. FIREWORKS! Ok, this one has nothing to do with our products, but what is a 4th of July celebration without some fireworks? We don’t advise trying to light up the sky yourself, so we found a helpful list of places to go in our area for some professional pyrotechnics.

Ready to party! Everyone is going to want to come to your party next year if you call us today to help you improve your indoor to outdoor spaces. We’re having our own soirée this weekend and we might just post some pictures of that in a future blog post – provided we don’t get too crazy – so you can see how we do it.
All of us here at Retracting Solutions wish you a safe and happy 4th of July weekend!
