Gorgeous Screen Porch Decorating Ideas

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!

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.

Screen Porch Season is Around the Corner!

Screen porch season at Atlanta Curb Appeal is around the corner here in East Cobb, GA and Sandy Springs. If you drive down Roswell Road/120 right now you can see elements of spring already. The grass is starting to grow again after all the snow has melted!

Spring flowers and sunny skies…We can practically smell the barbecue.

But how is your porch?

Is it sagging in certain sections? Is it so weathered that your socks get snagged when you step out to drink your morning coffee? Perhaps the back deck sways a bit when you do your Zumba tapes?

Then it’s time for a new screen porch from Atlanta Curb Appeal!

10 Questions to Consider Before Installing a New Screen Porch:

1) What will be its main function?

2) What are some things I can’t do but would do if I had a new porch?

3) Do I like the uninterrupted view of the landscape? Or do I want half walls to cover up a portion of my field of vision. Let’s be honest, does your neighbor have a not so pretty fence?

4) Will I need electricity?

5) Do I want an outdoor home entertainment system like a flat screen television with surround sound?

6) How about new ceiling fans to keep the temperature down in the dog days of summer?

7) If entertaining is your goal, how about an outdoor kitchen with built in refrigerator and cook top?

8)Would an entryway work? You could keep part of the porch screened in and some not.
