Reading. Socializing. Outdoor activities. Gardening and plants.
What do all of these things have in common? Each claims a top 10 spot on Statista’s 2022 Consumer Insights survey on the most popular hobbies and activities in the United States.
But they also have something else in common: people enjoy doing all of these activities outside.
Unfortunately, everything from bugs to bad weather can interfere with spending time in nature. But there’s great news! It doesn’t have to be that way. There is a way to engage in these activities even when the conditions outside are less than ideal.
We’re talking about a “best of both worlds” solution: patio and porch enclosures.
Read on for a closer look at how today’s innovative patio enclosures are helping homeowners create versatile indoor-outdoor spaces.
Is Bad Weather Forcing You Inside?
In a perfect world, every day would be filled with blue skies and sunshine, and we’d be able to spend as much time outdoors as we’d like. In the real world, bad weather can wreak serious havoc on the best laid plans.
Depending on where you live, bad weather is just one of many different seasonal issues that can interfere with time outdoors—from cold weather challenges like wind, hail, and snow to warm weather issues like extreme sun, bugs, and pollen.
Not only do these nuisances detract from our outdoor enjoyment, but they also interfere with the many benefits associated with recreation in nature and overall health and wellbeing.
That’s where screen enclosures come in.
When bad weather and other hazards might otherwise drive you inside, interrupt your plans, and prevent you from making the most of your patio or other outdoor space, patio enclosures allow you to continue to soak in the beauty of nature.
What are Patio Enclosures?
The phrase “patio enclosure” may bring to mind thoughts of the screened in porches at summer camp or your grandparents’ home, modern versions have come a long way.
Take Eze-Breeze’s celebrated porch and deck enclosure system, which has been thoughtfully designed to expand and enhance the functionality of favorite outdoor places. Each system is custom built to help homeowners transform their porches, patios, decks, and other exterior areas into 3-season or 4-season rooms.
Cost-effective, easy to use, and flexible, Eze-Breeze deck enclosures and other sliding solutions have functional and aesthetic benefits. In addition to maximizing views, they also give homeowners control over their environments. On nice days, slide your panels open to allow in abundant fresh air. Not-so-nice days? Get protection from rain, wind, bugs and more by sliding your panels closed.
An Investment in Your Happiness, Health, and Home
Today’s homeowners are looking for ways to improve their homes and how they live in them. At the top of the list for many of them? Outdoor home improvement.
In fact, according to one 2022 survey, just under 67 percent of homeowners planned on increasing their outdoor home improvement project budgets—many of them with high-ticket projects in mind. This aligns with the ongoing indoor-outdoor trend, which seeks to blur the line between these spaces.
In addition to heightened use of outdoor spaces and all the benefits that go with it, porch enclosures also have the potential to add value to your home.
According to a Better Homes & Garden roundup of the best outdoor project investments, functional outdoor living spaces were identified as significant value boosters—especially those with some kind of built-in shade or shelter. While pergolas serve this purpose to a degree, porch enclosures take functionality to the next level.
If you’ve ever had plans cut short or canceled completely because of bad weather, you know how frustrating it can be. For homeowners, this frustration is amplified when bad weather sets in. After all, your home is your retreat from the hustle and bustle of the outside world, and outdoor spaces are often hubs for relaxation, recreation, socialization, and more.
Eze-Breeze patio enclosures take the frustration out of the equation by allowing you to continue to use the precious spaces, even when the weather isn’t in your favor.
