Now that spring is here, it’s time to dust off the patio furniture and get your screened in porch in lounge-worthy condition. Screened in porches are so wonderful to use during the warmer months. You’re protected from the bugs but can enjoy the smells and sounds of nature. Our mornings consist of waking up slow with a cup of coffee or tea while listening to the roosters. In the evening, we often sit out on our screened in porch, wrapped up in a warm wool blanket with a cup of wine and listen to the coyotes howl. Whatever time of day it is, you can usually find us out on our porch!
We’ve put together our favorite screened in porch must-haves below.
Screened in Porch Lighting
Lighting can do so much for a room. There’s something magical about white bistro lights strung on the ceiling. It creates a peaceful ambiance. Bistro lights are relatively inexpensive and can completely transform a screened in porch from dull and bland to enchanting and welcoming.
It’s worth investing in outdoor patio that will last a long time. Take care of your patio equipment. Wash the covers regularly and bring in the furniture when the weather turns wet and cold. Find furniture that doubles as storage so that your space isn’t full of clutter.
Patio blankets are a nice touch to your screened in porch. We have a chest that doubles as a coffee table. Inside the chest we have quality wool blankets that our guests can grab and cozy up in when the temperatures go down. The patio blankets are protected from the elements and are there in a snap when you feel a chill. Our Farmhouse Collection wool blankets have a brushed finish, giving them added loft and softness. Whether you’re looking for a plaid wool blanket, striped wool blanket, black and white wool blanket, holiday blanket, or a camp blanket….we have plenty to choose from!
Candles add a nice touch to any room, don’t you think? Paired with white bistro lights and a good book, your screened in porch is going to be a little haven you’ll never want to leave.
What better way to watch the big game then in the comfort of your screened in porch?
Screened in porches are wonderful additions to any home. A fresh coat of paint, proper lighting, and subtle touches can do wonders for your outside space. Don’t forget, our wool blankets also make meaningful housewarming presents!
