1. Add a Retractable Screen
We may have mentioned this before, but it’s so true! Retractable screens on your entryways give you a connection between your indoor space and your outdoor space. They allow you to open your doors to fresh air whenever you’d like, which can also provide energy efficiency benefits as well.
