The screened porch can be one of the most excellent rooms in the house. Some people will buy a house because of its lovely screened-in porch. This outdoor living space is perhaps the easiest to turn into whatever you want it to be. How can you dress up a screened porch and make it fantastically unique? See if these tips suit or inspire your vision.
Stencil a Pattern on the Floor
One way to make the screened porch unique is to stencil the floor. Use a tile motif of your choice, such as a simple square or a geometric or floral design. Lay the stencil over the floor and paint over it with the color of your choice. Repeat enough times until you have a stencil-tiled floor.
Curtains soften up the look of any screened porch. It can help keep out the rain and wind as well. You can use curtains to filter sunlight or even create a colorful glow in the room with fun, colorful curtain patterns. If you ever need privacy or protection in your screened porch, curtains are a great way to achieve it.
Grow Potted Plants
Do you want your screened porch to feel lively and relaxing? Just add plants. Of course, you will need to keep them alive, but fake plants are also an option. Greenery makes any room feel more rejuvenating, just like if you were out in nature. You could include potted plants that sit on the floor, shelves, or tables or ones that hang from the ceiling.
Add Ambient Lighting
The next step is to add lighting so that you can enjoy your screened porch into the evening. String lights are the simplest way to create even, decorative ambient lighting, and there are many options out there. You can even find lights that match the seasons and holidays. Table lamps and floor lamps are also excellent lighting for setting the mood.
Add Your Favorite Things
Finally, add decorative pieces to dress up your screened porch like you would your home. Include furniture, knick-knacks, books, etc., to your taste. Throw in some snacks. Invite your cat, dog, and favorite people in, and the screened porch is complete.
