Tips for Decorating a Screened Porch
Before introducing new changes to your screened porch, you should clear the clutter. Put the magazines and newspapers in book shelves, keep the shoes on a shoe rack, and hang the coats in a closet. You have to organize your things prior to decorating your screened porch.
Add some color by placing an all-weather rug in the center of the porch. You can create a unique piece of art on the floor by painting a faux rug, or you can weave an intricately patterned rug of acrylic paints.
A glass center table goes very well with cane furniture. However, if space is a constraint, you can use a folding center table. Decorate the table with a laughing Buddha, flower vase or a table top fountain.
For light-colored walls, copper or bronze art work will accentuate the beauty of your porch. A wrought iron wall mirror looks great in front porches. For a warm Mediterranean look, use wall decorations in shades of ivory, turquoise, orange-red or olive-green.
Welcome your guests by hanging a beautiful floral wreath on the entrance. If your porch receives sunlight, you can create a container garden by using old paint buckets, milk jugs, wastepaper baskets, glass bowls, etc.
Some other captivating climbers are the Chilean bellflower, periwinkle, trumpet vine, clematis, bougainvillea, climbing rose and morning glory. These colorful creeping vines will not only lend a fragrant aroma to your porch but also attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Installing railing planters is an innovative way of beautifying your porch.
These tips were all about how to decorate a screened porch. Go ahead and implement your crazy, creative imagination and make your screened porch the most talked about thing in town.
