Picture this: you’re sitting on your porch with your loved ones, having a blast while you chat about what’s been going on in your lives lately. All of a sudden, you hear something buzzing around your ear, disrupting the great time you were having. While distractions like a fly or the weather may not be enough to ruin your experience completely, you’d certainly enjoy yourself a whole lot more if you didn’t have to worry about them. These aren’t concerns with screened porches, which come with several excellent advantages.
- Protection from Insects- Keeping out bugs is one of the most obvious benefits of a screened porch. It means you won’t have to be annoyed by flies, bees, or mosquitos when you’re trying to enjoy yourself outside, and you won’t have to fear them either.
- Increased Privacy- Screened porches aren’t totally private, but they still make it harder for your neighbors to see you. The screens provide a sense of privacy so you can sit on your porch without feeling too out in the open.
- More Living Space- Screened porches are extensions of your home because while they are technically outside, their screens make it feel a bit more like an indoor space. In essence, you get the best of both worlds, and you’ll feel less cramped in your home.
- Fresh Air- Sometimes when you’re seeking fresh air, opening a window isn’t enough. A screened porch allows you to get more fresh air without having to commit to being fully outdoors.
