Benefits Your New Favorite Place
There are many benefits to having a
Columbia SC screened porch in a bug-filled
backyard. In addition to being pest
free, you have a whole new room for eating,
entertaining and relaxing. It will be cooler on
the porch than it is outside the porch, and you
won't have to fret too much about spills and
housekeeping. Unless you carpet, you can clean
up with a bucket of water and the sweep of a
broom. What a great way to send the kids outside
and still have them confined. If you don't have
a screened porch, you can build one on a budget.
Screened porch design books abound.
First, consider the size of the Columbia
SC screened porch, if you're adding one. How
many family members and guests do you expect
will hang out here? Will that table and
chairs fit, and still leave room to open the
door to the yard? Where will that big, comfy
chair go? Will you have more or less furniture
or people than you do in your family room?
Remember, you want people to be able to walk
around freely. If you know what furniture you're
going to use, set it out in the yard,
comfortably spaced, and then create "walls" with
string. Measure to see how big your string house
is. To seat eight people comfortably, your
Columbia SC porch probably needs to be as big as
15 feet square.
