Summer is always hot but this year has been especially brutal with much of the country receiving record-breaking heat waves. Atlanta has not been immune and residents have been seeking comfort either in their air-conditioned homes or taking to their neighborhood pools and nearby lakes—unless they have a screened porch, patio, or gazebo! A screened space not only provides shelter from the blistering sun, it also protects the people, pets, and belongings inside from rain, insects, and debris. Add a ceiling fan or two to this comfortable and shaded space and you never have to wait for a summer breeze.

 

Benefits of a Screened Space

  • A multi-functional space: A single space can transform from an additional family room to a space for entertaining neighbors, friends, and family to a relaxing space where you can have some quiet time, read a book, or take a nap.
  • A bug-free space! No pesky flies or ants ruining your meals and when night begins to fall, mosquitos won’t make a meal out of you!
  • Seamless connection to other indoor and outdoor areas: A screened area next to an indoor room or outdoor kitchen, bar, or barbecue area can provide a sanctuary from the sun and bugs while still feeling connected to the other areas.
  • Open sight lines: Floor to ceiling screened porches, patios, and gazebos create a feeling of openness due to unobstructed sight lines.

 

Customizable Additions

Screened rooms are perfect for providing the great feeling of being outdoors, but that doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate all the conveniences of indoors into your new space. Add electricity for modern comforts such as ceiling fans, televisions, stereo systems, and lighting. Put your feet up in a hammock, hanging bed, or porch swing. Don’t forget to think ahead to other seasons, too. Integrated fireplaces are great for staying cozy when the temperatures swing in the other direction.
