The quarantines brought on by the worldwide pandemic kept us spending extended time in our homes. Maybe you used this time to clean out unwanted and used items, possibly starting in the garage. With garage screens being the latest trend, you’ll want to read on.
For many homes, the garage is the largest room in the house, and often the most underutilized space. Although it was designed to house the family automobile, the garage is an extremely valuable space. That large, enclosed room can be used in innovative ways to make it an exciting and useful extension of the home.
Create Your Space
First, imagine the possibilities of what you can do with the garage space. You could create the ultimate “Man Cave” or “She Shed” where you have a private space to relax. Or become the most popular home in the neighborhood by designing an entertainment room with a movie screen and game tables. If your family needs more functional space, you may want a pet zone, home gym, or a kids’ playroom. If your hobbies need a place to land, the garage is the spot for arts and crafts or an auto repair shop. Garages have even been made into an additional bedroom for the teenager or short-term guest who needs his or her own space.
What is a Lifestyle Garage Screen?
Second, consider installing a unique accessory that could make spending time in this space even more pleasurable: a retractable screen door! The Lifestyle Screen is the most versatile garage screen on the planet, and Joe Wilde Company is proud to be a licensed dealer. A Lifestyle Screen is a fully retractable, spring-loaded screen system that works in conjunction with your existing garage door. To put it into place, raise the garage door, and then lower the screen from the ceiling into place where the door was.
It is lightweight and so simple that it only takes one person to put it into place. It just takes seconds to turn your garage into an airy, pest-free space. It has an optional door-within-a-door, which allows for easy entry and exit from the garage without having to raise the screen. When you are done enjoying the great outdoors, simply retract the Lifestyle Screen and close the garage door. It’s that easy!
