Make Your Space Feel Bigger: Install A Screen Door

Make Your Space Feel Bigger: Install A Screen Door

We spent Saturday evening enjoying cocktails and greasy Thai food while relaxing in our friends living room. And even though their home is small, they comfortably fit 15 friends all at the same time. Although they pulled out extra seating for entertaining, it was the addition of a screen door that kept the space feeling open and airy.

With a room full of people, it's a luxury to be able to open the door and let the fresh air circulate (without letting bugs inside). And even if you're flying solo when relaxing at home, using the screen door will give the illusion of a larger space. Letting extra light inside will naturally add a bright and airy vibe. And after a quick search, we found plenty of screen doors online starting around $40.
