Owning a home with a screened in porch is a real gift. A wrap around porch and the surrounding landscape and protection from the weather. Such a place can easily become a sanctuary, a place for retreat in the home, if decorated with the right furniture to be able to contribute to such use. Decorating a screened in porch should accentuate the indoor-outdoor hybrid quality of the area in a relaxing way.
Mop and polish the wooden floor of the wrap porch so that it looks clean and inviting. When the floor is dry, add some woven or braided rugs to give space a cozy quality. Place wicker or rattan sofas, armchairs and ottomans for the porch. Choose a low coffee table for drinks and books. This type of furniture recognizes the outdoor aspect of the porch, but has a domestic quality to it. Add soft cushions and throw pillows to the furniture in your designated color scheme to make seating look more inviting.
Hang clean or opaque curtains or Roman shades along the sides of the room for privacy or block sharp sunlight. Such window treatments will also give the room a more finished, tailored look while adding a splash of color. Put the accessories around the porch. For example, lanterns and candlesticks will provide ambient lighting at night. Flower pots, other pot plants, vases with flowers or garden statues will bring a feeling of outdoor in the porch area.
