Benefits of a Screen Lanai for Your Home

The term “lanai” is common in Hawaii, but you may not be familiar with the term. These outdoor patios and balconies are usually built onto the back or side of the home to extend the living area and provide a comfortable and relaxing place to drink a morning cup of coffee or watch the sun go down. 

In Florida, where mosquitoes are active nearly any time of year, most lanais are surrounded by a large screen enclosure that keeps unwanted bugs and debris away. Take a look at the benefits of a screened lanai for your Florida home. 

The Pool and Lanai Combo

If you have a backyard pool that sits close to the edge of your home and if the roof also extends off the end of your house to provide shade to the back, this is the perfect place for a lanai. 

Imagine an extended roof covering providing a sitting area sheltered from the rain and the sun, which opens out into the pool area. This pool/lanai combination provides the perfect blend between lounging and swimming. Furnishing with a blend of tables, chairs, and chaise recliners will help everybody feel at home. 

It is better yet to enclose the lanai and pool with a large screen structure that prevents mosquitoes and other insects from ruining the fun. 

The Tropical Retreat

If you don’t have a pool to use as the centerpiece of your backyard, you can create a stunning lanai by building an outdoor room with two solid walls and two open walls facing your garden or backyard. You can transform this lanai into a true island house by decorating it with light, sunny colors, potted palm trees, and colorful flowers. Consider hanging a rustic chandelier from the ceiling to create ambiance.
