Perfect Bliss: The Screened Porch

Perfect Bliss Can be Just Outside One of Your Doors

A screened porch on the front of a home.

I grew up in homes with screened porches. It was the best room in the house on a summer day. The porch was a spot that offered shaded comfort, gentle breezes, the sounds of nature, and the perfect place to read, dine, play cards, talk and nap. And best of all—no mosquitoes!

It’s still my favorite place during summer. I’ll take a screened porch over a deck any day of the week.

Many homes feature an open porch. Here’s an article that offers a new and improved way to install a porch screen.
