Sliding Screen Doors - The owners of this South Carolina home wanted a welcoming entry and loved the idea of keeping their front door open to enjoy the breeze while still keeping bugs at bay. The answer: sliding screened doors hung just inside the foyer, instead of outside the front entrance. Plus, the doors keep the entry and surrounding area open because there is no door swing.

Outside patio and kitchen. Charmean Neithart.
It’s cozy and chic, with a fireplace for cool nights, fluffy pillows, and a candlestick chandelier. The space has a separate area for dining, making it ideal for entertaining. Lush plants are great ways to tie in the surroundings and provide natural ornamentation when needed. Brick used for both the house’s exterior and the floor of the outdoor area creates a seamless look, never giving away that the patio came after the house’s completion. The striped outdoor upholstery and pillows give the space a real living room feel.
Screened porch....oh yes!
