Summer is almost over and the lovely days of fall are nearly upon us. At Atlanta Curb Appeal enclosing screen porches has been a popular choice for homeowners in recent years. A screened in porch is common in the South because of our extended spring and fall seasons. In fact, in the late 19th century and early 20th century it was common to have a sleeping porch to capture and enjoy any breeze that a hot Georgia night might provide. Today’s porches richly extend a home’s entertaining space for guests but also are a great place to have your morning coffee or tea without being eaten alive by mosquitoes.
Whether your porch decor is modern or traditional we have gathered some beautiful pictures from around the web to get your creative juices flowing. And if you have been on the proverbial fence about finally enclosing your porch or deck, this month’s blog post might seal the deal!
Screen Porch Decor Ideas
Hammocks on porches are fairly common but the latest trend is swinging day beds. This one has “nap” written all over it.
This porch radiates with light because of the white interior and natural bamboo furniture. Houseplants at different heights keep everything fresh.
This screened porch with unpainted wicker is great for conversation and sharing stories. The high screen panels allow the sunlight to dance on the hardwoods.
The wrought iron chandelier adds more dining space to this home. Custom roman shades keep the heat out on the hot days.
And finally a true Southern porch isn’t complete without a couple of rocking chairs to while the time away.
