Screened porches are a great addition to a home. These canopies protect from the elements and keep everyone cool with fresh air in the summer. With spring approaching and temperatures rising, we will often use our porch as a second living room.
When looking through inspirational images, I recommend finding an idea from each image: the color of the quilt, the texture on the pillows, the size of the rug. Looking at multiple image sources will help you define your porch design (instead of mimicking what you see in the image).
Would you rather have a light and bright oceanfront screened porch? Or do you prefer a dark and moody, cabin-inspired outdoor space? Or mix a bit of both styles!
Last summer we bought two new (for us) chairs from the thrift store, an outdoor rug on sale, and painted our ceiling fan. I’m always looking for creative back porch ideas to decorate our own porch and make it more usable.
