Screened Porch Ideas

Screened porch ideas can always be found at Mermaid Cottages. Many times we receive cards and messages from guests with photos of home update projects they’ve completed based on inspiration from their stays in our cottages.  These happy little cottages by the sea are our brand standard and we’re happy to share ideas with our Mermaid guests, too!

With the kitchen located just inside the door, this porch becomes a delicious spot for breakfast and your first cup of Mermaid Morning Bliss coffee. It’s also a great spot for other meals and perfect for board games and puzzles. While most southern porches are decked out with rocking chairs, who says you can’t have loungers or recamiers or fainting couches on yours? You won’t be off your rocker if you do.

Wicker furniture can last for ages and is well-known for being highly durable and long-lasting. Synthetic is ideal for rain, sunshine, and all types of weather. Most wicker matches, so you can add pieces as you find them and move them around easily. It’s also affordable, so adding new pieces to spruce up your porch is fun and easy.

A wraparound screened porch is a great place to hang out, visit with family and friends, and wave to passers-by. This yard is upgraded with a white picket fence, so looking out over your children and pets at play adds to the porch ambiance.
