Bring the outdoors in all summer long! Phantom Screens offers custom-made retractable screens for your windows, doors and large openings so you can keep bugs out of your home while letting fresh air in. Discover smart ways to bring indoor-outdoor style to your living room, kitchen and more in this blog post sponsored by Phantom Screens.

Here's a great example of how you can screen in a porch or patio to easily extend your home's living space. The large motorized screens are custom-built for your home so you can get an exact fit. The screens have sun and wind sensors, too, so you can program them to lower or retract when needed. You don't need to worry about installation either — Phantom Screens offers installation across North America. These screens get as large as 25' wide and 16' tall.

The screens are also ideal for single, sliding or French doors connected to your backyard, deck, patio or balcony. There are three mesh options available for the screens that each offer varying degrees of insect and UV protection, and light, temperature and privacy control. If you're worried about fading furniture, rugs or art, you can choose the solar mesh, which reduces heat and glare by up to 75%, or the privacy mesh, which blocks up to 90% of UV rays.

On French doors the screens are mounted on each side of the door frame and are pulled to the centre of the opening when needed, keeping bugs out, and retract out of site when needed – a great solution as the usual static screens don't work with double French doors. Because all Phantom Screens products are custom-made, unusual door sizes or openings won't be a problem either.

These retractable screens also fit a variety of windows, from casement and awning to sliding and tilt-and-turn.

The screens are ideal for kitchen windows as they help to let cooking smells out and cooler air in. With a range of mesh colour options you can find the perfect one to suit your interior and exterior, and if you prefer a wood grain finish on the screen frames, you can choose from 15 options including light pine, dark acacia and dark walnut.
