Furniture Options for Your Screened-In Porch

It offers a comfortable space for you and your guests to relax and enjoy the outdoors without leaving the comfort of your own home. The right furnishings can make or break your screened-in porch, and using the right materials will ensure that your furniture is not ruined by outside elements.

Not truly qualifying as an “outdoor” space, a screened-in porch, also known as a closed-in porch, deserves more sophisticated furnishings than you would normally put in the backyard, such as iron tables and chairs or park-like wooden picnic tables. Also unlike the home’s interior space, the porch is no place for the soft upholstery found on most sofas and armchairs, even if it is made of leather. The best furniture for a screened-in porch would be something that is weather resistant, while still being comfortable, making the area inviting while reducing maintenance expenses. Elite Home Remodeling, located in Columbus, Ohio, can help you complete the look of your screened-in porch. Here are some options to consider when choosing outdoor furniture.

Wicker Furniture

Wicker is used and loved by many, and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. It is lightweight and still highly durable, making it a wonderful choice for your porch area. The natural look of wicker allows it to fit in beautifully with just about any décor. Wicker is not recommended if you have children in your home that may pick at the furniture, causing damage and possibly giving themselves splinters. It is also not a great option for those who are going for a more clean-lined, modern look.

Smooth Wood and Modern Décor

Solid wood furniture, when properly treated for weather resistance, is a great option for your screened-in porch. This furniture is typically heavier and may require more assistance to unload, set up, and rearrange when needed; however, it offers a more modern and classic appearance that many homeowners love. It is a solid choice if you have children who are prone to climbing and jumping on furniture. Wood is versatile in design and can complete the look of almost any décor.
