3 Essentials for Your Backyard Porch Retreat!

It’s summer!!!  The time of year to break the routine and invite friends for some summer fun.  More and more people are discovering that when you have the luxury of a screened porch, spending quality time with friends and family doesn’t mean you have to go out.

Porch Enclosure

porch enclosure is an indoor-outdoor space that can create an oasis of relaxation in your home.  While in the enclosure you get that great feeling of being outdoors while keeping pesky bugs away.  Having a well designed screened enclosure built for your home with beautiful patio furniture can create a room with a view where you can sit back, relax and entertain your guest.  A backyard screened enclosure is the perfect addition to any home because it can keep the air circulating during the hottest days of the year.  Several add-ons and accessories can truly complete your porch as a luxurious social gathering location.

1. Seating

This is the most important component of any porch.  Furnish your porch with great patio furniture and it will surely become the go-to spot of your home.  You should find seating with materials and colors that compliment your porch and lifestyle.  If lounging furniture isn’t your thing then add Outdoor Dining Furniture.  For our porch enclosure, we chose the 7-Piece Wicker Outdoor Patio Dining Set from the Lizkona Outdoor Collection found on the “FENPO” Fence & Porch Website.   We found that having outdoor dining furniture was the best fit for our family because it allowed us to enjoy those last rays of the summer sun.

2. Appliances

One thing that can make a nice add-on to your porch is an outdoor barbecue.  Since cooking outdoors will rely heavily on the grill’s features and capabilities, make sure you do your research and find the right grill for your cooking needs.

3.  Lighting

This is one of the most important features of your backyard retreat.  Lighting can completely change the feeling of a room. If you are not sure on what mood you want to set globe lights are a great starting point, since they have a timeless classic look that fits well with most styles.
