It makes sense to match the interior and exterior of your home. It may be simple for you to design your screened-in porch to flow with the rest of your home decor. Nothing is wrong with this traditional concept but did you know that breaking the rules isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Depending on your landscape, you may want to play around with color. If your garden is vibrant and colorful with various plants, flowers, and shrubs you could potentially want a more vibrant color scheme for your screened-in porch.
Do you like to host gatherings often? Then you may choose a color layout that’s going to pop and create an exciting environment for your friends, family, and neighbors. Here are some considerations for determining the color of your screened-in porch.
Don’t Pick Dreary Colors
While dark colors are classic, it may be hard to light an area that’s too dark. Even the addition of rugs, windows, and fun decor may not be enough to brighten your screened-in porch. After all, this room should be inviting not only to your guests but you as well. You don’t want to avoid your screened-in porch because of not liking the color scheme.
If you do pick a dark color for the walls of your porch, lighter colored furniture can help offset this and break it up. Colors such as tan and gray may seem not to compliment each other, but the contrast is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
Consider Your Interior Exterior
While it’s eclectic to stray from the interior layout of your home, make sure that the contrast isn’t too harsh. For example, if your siding is red, but the interior of your home is blue and white, you may be celebrating Independence day all year long. Breaking the matching rule works, but each design plan in your home should be complementary.
Considering your interior exterior is especially vital if the downstairs of your home has an open layout. You and your guests will be able to see straight into your screened-in porch and into your living room. Highly contrasting colors aren’t visually pleasing to the eye.
Choose Comfort over Color
While color is crucial, comfort trumps color. Consider the type of furniture that you’ll incorporate into your screened-in porch. Cool ideas include televisions to watch sports games. If you and your guests like different television programming then this helps settle differences if you already have TVs in other parts of your house. A footrest or ottoman lets you put your feet up, and specific couches can make your screened-in porch look like a lounge space.
