The weather is getting progressively warmer, giving people all over the United States hope that summer is finally on its way. If you haven't already, now is the perfect time of year to go to your screened-in porch or "three season room" and get it set up for the summer. After a winter away, you might want to do some cleaning so that this space is fresh and ready for another summer of frequent use.
Rather than just dusting off your furniture, do what you can to make this the indoor/outdoor living area that you've always dreamed of. You don't have to spend a lot in order to make this really work. Instead, try to repurpose other items that you're not using throughout your house.
Change the feeling of this space by adding spare lamps from inside the home for extra lighting, you can also bring out an area rug to bring a really special feeling to the space. If you would like to make this part of your home feel especially luxurious though, consider hanging silk drapes.
The sight of magnificent drapes billowing in the wind is romantic and reminiscent of the season. You can place these in the corners of your screened-in porch to frame your views and make spending time out here even more special. Choose a soothing color, like light green, which will blend in well with nature.
Get all of the benefits of being outside with the comforts of home when you set up your porch the right way.
