Create a getaway in your home
If you're one of the lucky people who have a screened-in porch, simple improvements may entice you to use this space even more. By creating a look that is both luxurious and inviting, you and your guests may end up spending more time outside than in your home.

One of the most popular trends in home design at the moment, according to HGTV, is to create a resort feel on your porch. Think of it as a getaway within your home, and try to use any style you like - beachy, southwestern, even shabby chic.

An easy trick to transform your porch into a tropical paradise is to update or install window treatments. Choose shades or blinds that are light and airy but still protective against the sun's hot rays. Woven shades are a great example, as they are easy to pull up and down and allow light to come through, effectively enhancing your new relaxing oasis.

Pick a calming color to paint the walls, floors and even the ceiling and choose furniture that exudes comfort. A few simple accessories and lighting are all you'll need to enjoy your updated haven.
