Avoid Insects with a Salt Lake Screened Porch

A screened porch provides added protection against insects and other outdoor pests that may interrupt your outdoor living enjoyment, without limiting your mountain or valley views, or the flow of fresh air.

Daytime use of screened porches is perfect for serving an outdoor meal without flies flocking. Screened-in porches are a perfect escape from bees, wasps and other stinging insects, an important barrier if you are allergic. And the most often cited benefit; screened porches make evening use of your outdoor space a lovely escape instead of a mosquito swatting marathon.

Best Ways To Utilize Your Salt Lake Screened Porch

Outdoor living trends are rapidly changing. With variations in how we live, how much we work, and how little time we have to relax and entertain, outdoor living spaces have to be extremely functional. There are a great many benefits to having a screened-in porch as part of your Salt Lake outdoor living space. Some of the most valuable ways to utilize the space are dependent on added accessories such as:

  • Outdoor porch fireplaces create a focal point, a privacy wall, and a heat source for extending screened porch use well into the cooler months.
  • Ceiling fans keep your screened porch fresh air flowing on the hottest most humid summer days in Salt Lake.
  • Outdoor kitchens provide a space for your outdoor grill where you can cook without insects or hot sun on you. They also provide you with counter space, so you can prep and cook outdoors, perfect for hosting dinner parties or just a weekday dinner at home with the family.
  • Big-screen TVs can be wired into the interior wall or above a fireplace so you can host football parties on the weekend while your television remains sheltered from the elements. Alternatively, grab a blanket and cozy up to your favorite prime time shows.
  • We recommend wiring in some lighting, as one of the best benefits of a screened-in porch is nighttime use without nighttime insects. A perfect location for an after-dark dinner party, card game, or family game night.
  • Do you have teens in the house? Outfitting your screened porch with a television, lounge furniture, and a table to eat at means you can be the house where all the kids hang out, but you can keep them out of your hair and in the fresh open air. And if you choose to add a fireplace or get a space heater involved, you can continue the fun into cooler winter weather.
  • Do you have any children in the house? A screened-in porch is the perfect outdoor retreat where you can escape cartoons, video games, and flute practice.
