With the start of each new season comes a desire to organize, clean, and start fresh. Well, maybe we don’t all have that burning desire, but it is still a great idea to use a new season as inspiration to put some elbow grease into your living space. As fall settles in, you are much more likely to want to put your patios and porches to use for entertaining friends and family. While you may not pay much attention to leaves and dirt on the floor of the patio or garden tools leaning in the corner, your guests will. Why not take a day to clean and organize your patio or porch to make it magazine photo-shoot perfect? Ok, you can just make it “have the neighbors over to sit around the fire” semi-perfect, but that’s an improvement, right?
At Retracting Solutions, we’re busy year-round installing retractable screens from Phantom Screens. We’re good at what we do, but we tend to stick to what we know and leave the domestic tips and tricks to someone else. Thankfully, Phantom Screens recently published a timely blog post with suggestions on how to clean and organize your patio. Give it a read and see if it inspires you to get moving and get your outdoor spaces ready for entertaining.
Once you’ve done your sprucing up for the fall, you can spend the rest of this beautiful season unleashing your inner Martha Stewart by entertaining guests in your outdoor spaces, enjoying cozy fires in fire pits and fireplaces, and witnessing the spectacular views the leaves provide this time of year. If retractable screens for your indoor to outdoor spaces are a part of your sprucing up process, please contact us to find out all the solutions we offer.
