Retractable screens help bring the outside in - Kelowna BC

At the heart of the picturesque orchards and wineries of the Okanagan Valley and located in Kelowna stands this imposing family home. Surrounded by beautifully designed and immaculately kept gardens, the house is a charming combination of luxurious indoor space and stunning landscaped exterior.

The owners extensively remodeled the house and added the front veranda and the swimming pool, as well as a back porch and patio to enjoy an unrestricted view of the extensive manicured gardens. The porch is used as an entertaining space and acts as a transition between indoors and outside.

The homeowners love their covered porch and the protection from the elements it offers — allowing them to enjoy their gardens whatever the weather. From the end of winter to the last days of fall they like to sit, relax and entertain. Unfortunately, especially in the height of summer, they suffered the unwanted attention of insects and had to retreat indoors. So they looked for a screen solution which would act as a barrier to insects without obstructing the view of their backyard and not take away from the simple and elegant design of their porch.

The homeowners chose retractable screens as the best screen solution suitable for their porch. The view of the gardens was very important and therefore the screens had to be retractable when not in use. The screens also needed to be easy to operate, simple to maintain, and easy to fit in with the owners’ lifestyle.

After full consultation with the couple, Phantom Screens’ BC Interior Division recommended motorized Executive Screens by Phantom® recessed into the porch’s archways to maintain the clean lines of the home’s design. The screens are completely out of sight when not in use, and can be lowered by the simple press of a button on a remote control or a control pad located near the door.

The installation of the screens has enabled the homeowners to thoroughly enjoy their garden, as well as allowing the exterior spaces of their home to be used comfortably from early spring to late fall.

screen bug-free enclosure with outdoor feel. Not sure about strength in strong-wind waterfront areas. Concerned about ripping. Consider for cabin and primary homes.
