Host the Most Epic Super Bowl Party

Now that 2019 is but a distant memory, it’s time to look forward to 2020’s first big event - The Super Bowl! Super Bowl LIV 2020 will be at 4:30 PM MST on

Sunday, February 2, 2020

 

If you’re planning to host a Super Bowl party in your home, it’s never too early to prepare. Here are some in hosting the most epic Super Bowl party:

Prepare the Space

Think about how guests will watch the game. Prepare the amount of seating you will need for everyone to enjoy the game comfortably. While the couch may not be adequate to accommodate all your guests, think about putting the game on in different areas. A popular Idea is to have the game on in the backyard. Grill burgers and hot dogs, or grab a beer while enjoying the game as the kids play. 

Comfy seats are essential, and you should set them up so everyone can see the screen and easily access the food. If you’re hosting the party on your patio, you can expand your entertainment space with some awnings, or make it a little more intimate (and bug free!) with some zipper-sealed patio shades. Decorate the area according to the colors of the teams playing with some streamers, mini-flags and foam-fingers, and you’re all set! 

Game & Half-Time Show Fun

Get everyone into the Super Bowl spirit with some fun games around the event. Start a drinking game that revolves around certain plays, commercials, or the half time show. Jennifer Lopez & Shakira will be the headliners for this year's Super Bowl Half Time Show.

Make a pool for Super Bowl predictions before the game starts and have everyone put in a couple dollars to play.  You can even have some fun with the prizes- get a little trophy and pop a bottle of champagne to celebrate the winner.

 

Simple, But Delicious Food

When it comes to Super Bowl parties, there’s no need to be fancy with food. Just remember these two things: savory and sweet. You can never go wrong with classics like barbecue, hotdogs, or tacos. Make your party standout by keeping food presentation cohesive to the Super Bowl theme, if you are feeling up for the challenge try to make a Super Bowl Snack Stadium. For dessert, make some Super Bowl-themed sweets (check out delicious recipes on Pinterest!). 

Lots of Drinks!

A Super Bowl Party is not complete without some refreshing drinks. Think about what kind of drinkers your guests are, and how tipsy you want them to get. Get a beer keg or a cooler full of beer for the occasion.

Of course, not everyone drinks alcohol. Remember to serve fun non-alcoholic drinks for designated drivers and guests who prefer to stay sober. If there are kids attending think of what they would enjoy.

Ready to host the most unforgettable party ever? Let All Pro Shade Concepts get your backyard ready for parties all year round with high-quality shade solutions.

Home Upgrades for 2020

2019 will be ending very soon, and a new decade will start. As the new year draws near, you should start thinking about how you can refresh your home for 2020. Think about the home projects and upgrades you've put off over the years.

Don’t know where to start? Here’s our list of home upgrades you can add to your home this 2020.

Solar Panels

The road to sustainability and self-sufficiency is long, and the first step is renewable energy. Arizona has plenty of sun, so harvesting its power for your own use only makes sense. Solar panels can help significantly cut your utility costs. It also serves as a backup when grid power is down. When air conditioning costs are at its highest in the summer, you'll be glad to be harvesting your own power.

Going solar not only brings your monthly power bill down, it benefits the environment. It’s definitely worth looking into if you want a more self-sufficient home.

Entertainment or Game Room

If you have an extra room that’s been gathering dust, one good way to make use of it is to transform it into an entertainment or gaming room. While it’s okay to keep your entertainment electronics in the living room, an entertainment room sets an exclusive ambiance, where you can binge-watch Netflix films, watch sports, or play your favorite video games.

Wow your guests with a new pool table, air hockey table, dart boards, ping pong table, or poker setup. Get a projector and install a wet bar to host the greatest super bowl parties for years to come.

Awnings & Patio Shades

Do you need more shade in your backyard?  Sun protection is a must in the intense Arizona sun. Poolside Retractable Awnings can add some much-needed shade to your pool. With some shade, you can extend your swimming time without worrying about getting sunburned. Arizonians love to have the awnings extend over the pool, eliminating the hassle of setting up an umbrella. Awnings can also expand your outdoor entertainment space when you invite friends over. Motorized Patio shades, another luxurious addition, can reduce the glare and heat coming into your patio, so you can enjoy cooler areas with the sun blocked.

Home Automation System

Home automation is undoubtedly a necessary addition to today's modern home. It lets you control almost anything in your home. And you don't need to buy a huge system right off the bat, either. You can start with small upgrades like lighting and climate control using readily-available devices like Google Home or Amazon Echo/Alexa.

Install responsive sensors for motorized patio shades and awnings, so it retracts or opens automatically depending on the sunlight exposure and wind speed. You can also try sleek, motorized, interior blinds/shades - where you can set them to retract or extend based on a timer. With home automation, the possibilities are endless!

Of all these home upgrades, getting shade solutions is the easiest. It’s an effective way to cut cooling costs during the summer, and you can enjoy other benefits for the rest of the year. All Pro Shade Concepts is Arizona’s most reliable shade solution installer. If you’re not sure what shade solution your home needs, we do FREE HOME INSPECTIONS, no pressure to buy!

Top 5 Gifts for Arizona Homeowners

It’s almost Christmas - we all know what that means! The streets are going to be crowded with Christmas shoppers looking for last-minute deals on gift items. Trinkets, new clothes, and toys are nice, but if you want to give your loved ones something that lasts, or if you simply want to minimize the clutter in your home, look for a gift that everyone can enjoy. Here are top 5 gift ideas for Arizona Homeowners.

Multimedia Projector

Be it movie or game night, a multimedia projector will level up any entertainment space. Create a new tradition with your family where you all come together for one night each week to enjoy your favorite flicks. The great thing about a multimedia projector is that you can set it up indoors, or outdoors if the weather’s nice! Tip: create a driver-in aesthetic to your setup by adding some rugs/pillows on the floor of your patio or living room. Don’t forget the popcorn!

Outdoor Firepit

Every Arizona backyard should have a lovely firepit. There, you can gather your family ‘round for some campfire goodies - smores, hot cocoa, eggnog, barbecue, you name it! A fire pit creates a cozy spot in your backyard, and, when set up right, can also double as a grill. Thanks to Arizona’s warmer climate, you only need a single firepit to make your backyard suitable for winter family gatherings.

Hanging Patio Swings

Choosing outdoor furniture is easy if you go with the basics - but why not do something extra for your family and guests? A swing is a whimsical addition to your patio. It creates a space for you to relax and take in the fresh air while being gently lulled to sleep. Tip: Make sure to add some roll shades to your patio to reduce the sun’s glare in the morning. 

Zipper Patio Shades

Customized Zipper Patio Shades are a great gift for anyone looking to upgrade their backyard. More than protection from debris and UV rays, it also maximizes outdoor living space. Motors would be a great addition too because it makes the shades easier to roll back when not in use. Make sure to pick colors that match or complement your home’s style!

Motorized Retractable Awnings

Need more room in your yard for social gatherings? Motorized awnings are the best way to add a little more space in your backyard. As an added value, it works best with sun and wind sensors, so it can automatically open or retract based on the weather. The best part? You can make use of it all year!

Make your Patio Bug/Debris Free Using Zipper Sealed Patio Shades

Zipper-Sealed Patio Shades are a great addition to your patio, backyard deck, or any outdoor living space. This installation gives many benefits such as reducing the amount of heat and UV rays, significantly reduces energy cost, to name a few. During the fall, parts of your home may be exposed to leaves, dust, and debris. Here’s how zipper-sealed patio shades can protect your outdoor living area.

Durable Design

Arizona is prone to strong winds. The zipper-lock shade feature that holds the screen in rails makes it durable enough to withstand the elements. This makes your patio perfect for board games and the like. You don’t have to worry about your stuff getting blown away, as the screens can break the blow of the wind. You can also add wind sensors and motors so when the wind gets too strong for the patio shades to handle, it will automatically retract.

Versatile and Customizable

Zipper-sealed patio shades can be customized according to your home’s needs and style. You can choose the type of fabric and colors. Motorization is also a great addition to zipper-sealed shades. This allows you to control your shades at the touch of a button. You may also add sun sensors that will automatically roll your shades down when it gets too hot out. 

Fade Resistant Screen Fabrics

All Pro Shade Concepts uses only Textilene® to make sure the screens are of high quality and fade resistant. This type of fabric can block up to 90% of the sun’s rays and can significantly reduce your energy cost during summer.

During colder months, it can help you create a cozier environment for your family and guests.

Doubles as a Bug Screen

Love hanging out at the patio with your kids? Keep those bees, wasps, and flies out easily with zipper-sealed patio shades. The sealed track keeps annoying fall insects in your backyard away from your outdoor living spaces.

How To Enjoy Fall in Your Arizona Yard

The leaves are transforming into shades of mesmerizing golds, reds, and oranges. The temperature gets cooler at this time of the month. In Arizona, where the summers are longer, the Fall season is a welcoming sight, and it’s the best time to relax outdoors. Here’s how you can prepare your backyard this fall, for your and your family to enjoy. 

Make Your Yard More Inviting

Just because pool season is almost over doesn’t mean your yard has to sit idly. Fall is one of the best times to take advantage of your outdoor space. Add some outdoor rugs to your patio create a warm and cozy space. You may also change your slip covers to match fall colors. Make sure you install patio shades to block out the sun’s glare without disrupting the view. Motorized patio shades with sensors are ideal, because you can program it to automatically roll up or down depending on the sun or wind.

Use Awnings to Expand Your Guest Space

Awnings are a perfect way to expand your guest space and add a little more shade to your backyard. Water and mildew proof awnings are great for the fall season too. Retractable awnings with wind sensors are easy to use. The sensors make sure that your awnings retract when the wind starts blowing too hard.

Protect Your Patio from Elements

Wind in the fall season cools your outdoor patio area and leave an atmosphere of cozy weather in the yard. If you have a backyard full of trees and plants, debris can easily get into your patio area. To prevent this, use zipper-sealed patio shades. Zipper-sealed patio shades keeps the debris and bugs away from your patio while letting the cool breeze in.

Get Ready to Entertain As the Temperatures Start to Drop

School has started, and the summer’s almost a distant memory. As Fall closes in, holiday events and seasonal festivals will soon pop up around The Valley. With more visitors pouring in as the temperature starts to drop, it’s important to prepare your home ahead of time. Here are ways to prepare your home for fall season visitors:

Backyard Retreat

What better way to welcome your visitors than with a lovely meal in your backyard? Create a space to entertain guests by expanding the shaded area with awnings. Though the temperatures are starting to drop, the sun over Arizona can still be harsh during the day time. Shield your guests with a shade structure that can be retracted anytime you want.   

Intimate Interiors

Interior roll shades provide the much needed privacy for you and your guests. When it starts to get cold outside, it can also serve as insulation. Motorized interior roll shades are so convenient to use, especially when equipped with sensors. You don’t have to worry about rolling the shades down when it’s too bright out, because the sensors will do the work for you. All you have to do is focus on entertaining your guests with great food and indoor activities.

Insect & Debris-Free Patio

When orange leaves start plummeting to the ground, we want to be there to witness it. However, we don’t want these leaves getting into our outdoor furniture. Debris and insects are abundant during fall, and these can easily get into your patio area. To prevent this, you can install zipper-sealed patio shades in your home. You and your visitors don’t have to worry about blocking the view or the breeze with patio shades. Patio shades are created to shield your home from outdoor elements without obstructing the view.

 

Beautiful Curb Appeal

Say hello to Fall-decorating with your revamped exterior windows. Old, faded window screens definitely don’t go well with holiday decor, so make sure your sun screens are upgraded to sturdier, more elegant-looking ones before you start decorating. Window sun screens are a great way to enhance your home’s curb appeal, and will increase your home’s value. Your visitors will definitely appreciate your home’s picture-perfect look!

The Benefits of a Shade Solution System

A home with tons of natural light can create a positive space. Sometimes though, the heat can be way too harsh for you to endure. Being able to control when the amount of natural light that comes into your home should be an option if you want maximum comfort. Motorized residential shades and sunscreens are the best way to stay in control, so you can enjoy your entire home with your friends and family. Here’s how motorized shades, awnings, and sunscreens can help you stay in control:

Protection from UV Rays

If your home is facing south, chances are it’s getting a lot of sunlight for most of the day. If you’re dealing with Arizona heat, the temperature inside your home will rise fast. Not only that - constant contact with direct sunlight is bad for your skin in the long run. Motorized interior roll shades can easily solve this problem. When installed with sensors, it will automatically roll the shades down when it detects too much sunlight.

Privacy and Security

If you’d like a more permanent solution, sunscreens can block most of the sunlight during the day. It’s also an excellent way of blocking your home’s view from the outside, protecting you from nosy neighbors or people who like to snoop around in general. It’s also a great way to enhance your home’s curb appeal.

All Pro Shades Concepts, are Arizona's #1 Trusted SRP Certified Contractors that can install window sun screens eligible for SRP's Screen Rebate.

SRP is offering customers a rebate of $0.80 per square foot on professionally installed shade screens to keep their homes cooler during Phoenix's summer months.

Save Money with Energy Efficiency

If your home is facing North, your backyard gets the bulk of the sunlight. The back of your house can be hotter than other rooms, and cooling this area may be expensive. How can you cool a room and save power at the same time? Motorized awnings can be a good solution for this. It expands your space and gives it more shade at the same time. Poolside awnings can be a great addition to your backyard too, if you want to have more shade while you swim.

 

 

Protect Furniture from getting Sun-Bleached

Sun damage can reduce the quality of your furniture. Patio shades are a great addition to your lounge or patio and prevent irreversible damage to your outdoor furniture. Zipper-sealed patio shades prevent debris and insects from getting into your home. It also lets the breeze in while blocking the sunlight, so you can enjoy the space with family and friends.

The Best Ways to Cool Down This Phoenix Summer

It’s the middle of August and you think you might be running out of time to enjoy the summer. Phoenix heat has always been intense, so it’s no wonder why some people find summer hard to enjoy. But as always, we’ve got you covered. Here are the best ways to cool down this Phoenix summer. 

Dress for summer

This summer's most trendy colors are the light ones. Wearing light clothing isn’t only about style, but it also absorbs less heat from the sun, making the fabric cooler. This also enhances mood as it is associated with sunshine and the summertime. Cool fabrics such as loosely woven silk, cotton, or linens are preferred as they have a lighter texture and makes the skin breath.

 

Invite People Over

Inviting people over means you don’t have to get inside that hot car to get to a social gathering. Let your friends come to you. Of course, when they do come over, you have to make sure they’re comfortable. After braving the heat to get to your house, they’re going to need a shaded area to rest in. Make sure you have sunscreens or interior roll shades installed in your home so you can keep the heat out for your guests.

Take a Dip

Have a pool at home? Take this opportunity to take time off from the heat and enjoy the summer with your family and friends. Installing poolside awnings increases shade, making pool time a lot cooler. Residents love awnings that extend to shade over their pools. When you swim in a shaded area, you don’t have to worry about staying in the water too long and getting sunburned. Awnings also expand your entertainment space, so there’s more room for your family and friends.

Enjoy Your Backyard

You out and expose yourself to the scorching heat in search of summer adventure. You don’t always have to socialize. Sometimes it pays to relax alone in your own home. Grab a book, a cold drink, dip in the pool and lounge in your patio. Patio shades are another option to help you block the glaring sun while keeping the view and the breeze. All Pro Shade Concepts makes sure your shades are safe and provide the best quality installations- guaranteed.
