Outdoor living spaces feel more complete with an area or areas that serves as both a place to relax and a gathering spot for your guests during spring, summer, and fall. There are many benefits of building a screened in porch. Having an open air deck in the spring and early summer might be nice, but a screened in porch can be enjoyed day or night, rain or shine, and for many months throughout the year.
Enjoy the Great Outdoors Without the Bugs
A screened in porch is a terrific way to get some fresh air without sacrificing any comforts of home. If you want to do this on warm summer nights, you know that mosquito protection is a must. A screened porch protects you from the itching bites, stings, and diseases that mosquitoes, bees, moths, flies, and other bothersome insects can bring. A screened porch is a great investment for those who want the great outdoors without the outdoor elements. Bugs will no longer be a problem for you and your family with a screened in porch.
Extend Your Family Room
Shake up family time by having an outdoor game night or dinner! A screened porch is a great place to spend time with family and enjoy each others company. You can even carry a portable heater with you if the weather becomes a little cool! Or bring out some pillows and blankets to make it extra cozy and add some plants and ambient lighting for a touch of style. Screened-in porches provide a great spot for a spontaneous family gathering.
Create a Space That Fits Your Needs
Your screened in porch can be customized to fit your specific needs. Screen materials come in a variety of forms, so you can get exactly what you need. Some are tightly woven and cut down on UV ray exposure on sunny days, while others are pet and child safe for families with active children who also want to enjoy the porch. There are plenty of options to create a space that is perfect for you.
Increase The Value of Your Home
Adding a screened-in porch to a property increases its value, especially in terms of its overall curb appeal. Potential buyers and renters may picture themselves and their loved ones relaxing in the screened-in porch, and because they aren’t very common, it could be the feature that swayed them to make the purchase.
Add A Little Privacy
Screened in porches are great for those who want some extra privacy in their backyard. Blinds and privacy screens can be added to create a calming oasis to relax with a cold drink or read a book. These window treatments can also work to block out the hard afternoon sun so that this space can be enjoyed any time of day. Even without these extras, the mesh screens themselves add a barrier between you and the outside world to create the feeling of seclusion.
