How to turn your screened in porch into an extra living space

Hey Guys! Sorry it’s been a little while!  I have been traveling, visiting family, and working hard for you guys these last couple weeks! I have a lot on it’s way so STAY TUNED!

Today I wanted to share a super fun project Josh and I finessed a few weeks back which is our SCREENED IN PORCH!! Wooohooo!!!! We were so happy to get this room finished! It’s great for early weekend mornings and cool summer nights! I know we’ll be out here a lot in the fall too! Needless to say, we knew we would get a lot of use out of this room, so we figured why not make it feel like an extension of our indoor spaces!

To make your outdoor space feel nice an cozy, start with an area rug and curtains. Those two things will immediately make your porch feel more “indoor”!

Next find outdoor furniture that has good cushioning and fun pillows 🙂

Then get creative and have fun! Add accent pieces to match your style!

Finding unique pieces like this old rustic trunk helps add textured to your room.

Also, take advantage of your room being outside! Plant an herb garden to add green to the room!

    Man I wish I had a screened-in porch! There’s something so relaxing about an evening on the porch with a cool breeze and no mosquitos!

      It’s seriously amazing! We let the room go unfinished for waaaay too long! SO glad to get some use out of it now! 🙂

    I sat out here when I came a couple weeks ago and it’s perfect. Love this space! You did a great job. 🙂
