Screened in porches are a great asset to a home. We enjoy our porch because it protects us from bugs and keeps us cool in the summer. With Spring almost here and temperatures rising, we will use our porch more often as a second living room. Last summer we purchased two new (to us) chairs from the thrift store and an outdoor rug on clearance. But I am always on the hunt for creative screened in back porch ideas to decorate our own porch and make it more useable.
When looking through inspiration pictures I recommend finding an idea from each image: the ceiling color, the texture on the pillows, the scale of the rug. Looking at multiple image sources will help you define your own style (instead of mimicking exactly what you see in the image). Would you prefer to have a light and bright, coastal screened in porch? Or would you prefer a dark and moody, cabin inspired screened in porch? Or blend a bit of both styles!Read More
