Simple Ways To Enhance Your Florida Home Lanai

A lanai is one of the most desirable features for a home in Florida because it allows you to increase your living space and make the most of the sensational weather we have here.

Odds are, if you have a lanai, you spend a fair amount of your time out there. So why not make the most of that time by adding some features that allow you to enjoy your lanai even more?

In today’s post, we are sharing our favorite ways to enhance your lanai so that you can get the most out of your outdoor space. [For more tips like these, follow us on Facebook]

Get It Screened In Or Enclosed

If it isn’t already, you may want to seriously consider screening in your lanai or adding a cage. A screen adds a much appreciated added layer of protection for those pesky mosquitos and various other bugs that like to make a meal out of you while you are trying to relax.

Add Grill Or Full Outdoor Kitchen

Being able to cook and eat outside three meals a day, all year long is one of the most sensational advantages of getting to call Florida home. If you can’t have a full kitchen on your lanai, a grill will do just fine to help you enjoy more meals outside.

Dont Forget The Greenery!

Adding even a small amount of foliage can really liven up your outdoor space and keep the tropical feeling alive. Whether it be a small palm to accent a dull corner, an herb garden, or a spray of orchids, plants really make an otherwise plain lanai feel more decorated

Add A Punch Of Color

Don’t underestimate the power of a few pops of color here and there. If the majority of your palate is neutral, consider adding some brightly colored cushions or pillows or a throw rug. Again, the splashes of color will make your lanai feel more like an extension of your indoor living space rather than just a boring old patio.

Keep It Private

Value your privacy? Hang some curtains throughout your lanai that you can draw back if you want to open the space or spread for more privacy. Try white, airy curtains that will give you the privacy you crave, while adding a spa-like feeling to the decor of your lanai.
