If you’re looking for ways to spend more time outdoors but you don’t want to bother with pesky insects or bad weather, a screen room from Marshall Brothers Home Improvements is an ideal solution. Without spending a fortune, a screened-in room allows you to add living space to your home, while also affording you the opportunity to surround yourself in nature. Whether you have a screen room and you aren’t sure what to do with it or you’re just starting to consider installing one, we’ve got four creative ways to use the space.

Create an Outdoor Eatery

Have a large family that needs extra seating? Like to indulge in a romantic dinner among the stars now and then? Whatever your reasons, making your screened-in room an extra dining room is a great idea. Try a picnic table for a rustic look, or a sleek glass table for a modern atmosphere. You can even add a hutch or cabinets to store glassware and linens, making it more convenient to take meals outdoors.

Add Luxury and Elegance with Mood Lighting

Create a soothing, relaxing area by adding some comfortable seating, like couches or divans, decorative floor pillows, and a bookshelf full of your favorite books. For added character, install lighting that reflects your style. If you want to go for a glam look, try a crystal chandelier and all white furniture. For a more vibrant room, try hanging paper lantern lights in a variety of colors.

Enjoy an Outdoor Sleeping Area

From a unique guest bedroom to a quiet place to nap, your screen room can easily be transformed into an outdoor sleeping area. Add a daybed or an actual bed to your space to transform it into a bedroom full of nature. If you’re looking for something a little more unexpected, install a hammock and spend time reading or resting there.

Give Your Kids Their Own Play Area

Turn your screened-in room into a place the whole family can enjoy by creating a play space for the kids. Consider out-of-the-box ideas like a teepee or small tent, a water table for play, or an easel so they can paint inspired by the natural landscape that surrounds them.
