One reason to screen-in your porch is for privacy. By screening-in your porch, you can create an outdoor living space that feels private and secluded, without being completely cut off from the outdoors. Some homeowners choose to hang curtains to enhance privacy on their porch.

Extra Storage Space

Screen porches can also provide extra storage space. If you have a small patio or deck, screening in your porch can give you some much-needed extra storage space. By screen in your porch, you can create a storage area for outdoor furniture, grill supplies, and more.
