Decorating Ideas for Your Screen Room

When you have an open porch, you really have limited options when it comes to décor. But by turning your porch into a screen room, you open up many more possibilities. If you go with the right design, the screened walls and roof will offer some protection. 

This means that you can have a few more design elements, although you still have to be aware of the fact that décor in your screen room might still get wet in a severe storm. Here are some ideas for decorating your new screen room.

Area Rugs and Runners

Area rugs add some flair and your own personal style to your screen room, but they are also very practical, helping to keep your feet toasty warm when you go outside on cool, cloudy mornings or rainy nights. You can make use of rugs in a number of ways, including:

  • A runner from the back door through the room to the sitting area
  • A small circular area rug in a circular seating area
  • A larger area rug to cover most of the screen room

Once you decide on the furniture for your screen room, you’ll have a much better idea of how to arrange things, where you’ll want rugs, and what kinds of rugs you want. Just make sure that any area rugs you choose are rated for both indoor and outdoor use.

Paper Lanterns

You have a lot of options when it comes to lighting your screen room, and it can be tempting to just put in a basic light fixture or lamp. But if you really want your screen room to stand out and be inviting, consider using paper lanterns or similar light fixtures. Paper lanterns add colorful, soft light to your room, giving it a peaceful ambiance.

Bamboo Blinds

Most of your screen room is going to be open to the elements, which means that if the sun shines directly on your screen room for any time at all you have a chance of being blinded. Installing bamboo blinds on some of the panels, particularly around the sitting area, will give you the ability to block out the sun temporarily.
