Help me hide my carport!

drsaginawJuly 5, 2013
You can see my ugly carport from my front door, through the main living area and past the sun room. I need to be able to close it off for the dog, yet have an access door. I was thinking about soji screen meets Mondrian, something artful but doesn't block all the light.

Consider metal cutwork sliding panels that will allow the play of light through them and provide a nice entry statement. You can back light them at night for a great view out your entry. They would be stronger than shoji screens and resist the elements better.

I like the above comment regarding cut metal, I think that could be a very bold look that does not overpower the space.

You might also consider using vertical slats that are offset from one board/panel to another. I've seen this done in fencing, but might work in this situation as well. It would allow light in and out, keep the pets out, and obscure the view straight on. With some shaped shrubs you could create a zen like appearance with all the features you are looking for.
