Some Great Ways to Use Your Screen Porch
- Rainy days in the summer. Sometimes you just need a break from the air conditioning and enjoy the sound of rain on the rooftop.
- Dining and entertaining. Set up a dining table and chairs inside your screen porch and have your meals outside. Entertaining guests on your porch is a sure way to enjoy your space more.
- Work from home, on your porch. If you work remotely, use the screen porch as a change of scenery, knowing that you’ll be bug-free and sheltered from the elements.
- A place to unwind at the end of the day. Add a chaise or an outdoor sectional on your screen porch and enjoy the evening sounds of your backyard without the insect bites. Add some lighting and music, and you’ll have a new favorite place fast.
