How are you using your indoor/outdoor space? If you are fortunate to have a screened in area, make the most of it! While traditionally screened in patios are used for cooking out, reading, having coffee or simply relaxing with friends and family, you can really get creative with the activities that you bring to your patio! Let’s explore a few ways to make the best use of your screened in area this summer.
Yoga improves the mind, body and soul. Why not move aside any patio furniture and make room for your yoga mat? Try lighting a few candles in the area and practicing at sunrise or sunset. Your screens will ensure that you are in a bug and weather free area where you can comfortably practice your poses.
Why limit family game night to the living room? Try moving game night out onto the patio this summer for a fun twist. Make some summery treats for the kids, and fix up some summer-inspired drinks for the adults who are playing.
There is nothing like a mini “staycation.” Keep your kids busy for at least one night during their summer vacation by setting up camp. Instead of having the kids actually go outdoors, have them set up a small tent or simply put their sleeping bags in your screened in area. The protection of the screens will make it much more comfortable than actually sleeping outside, plus your kiddos will be much closer when nature calls in the middle of the night. Comfortable and convenient camping compliments of your screened in area!
