Thank you Phantom Screens for sponsoring this post and providing hours of outdoor fun for my daughter!
I don’t know about you, but as soon as the weather turns from winter to spring, I want to have the doors and windows open as much as possible! My daughter loves to play in the front yard with the neighborhood kids so I usually just leave the front door open to get some fresh air and to keep an eye on her. The problem I’ve had for the last 3 years though, is that when the door is open, the bugs think it’s an open invitation to join us for dinner – gross!
Years ago I heard about Phantom Screens and ever since moving into this house, I’ve been dreaming about getting one for our front door. I love having the front door open as much as possible but I don’t like the look of traditional screens, I want to see my pretty door, and wreath, when the door is closed!
Now that we have our Phantom Screens I’m able to have my pretty front door show, but when the kids are ready to play outside, or I just want some fresh spring air, I open the door and close the screen.
I absolutely love our Phantom Screens, they are everything, and more, that I hoped they’d be. It might seem silly to “love” a screen door but when you get yours, you’ll understand. Everyone that comes over comments and says how awesome they are.
The Latch & Release handle makes it easy to use, quiet to operate and secure from unintended openings.
The screens are also very sturdy and durable. The day we had ours installed I had the dog in the backyard while the installation guy was over. When he was finished I left the front door open, with the screen in place, and let my dog back in the house. She came bolting up the stairs, and full puppy speed, and ran straight for the door – thinking she was going to get to run right out the front door. Instead she bounced off the screen, as if she’d just landed on a trampoline. 🙂 I was so mad and thought for sure she had just broken my brand new screen, but when I went to inspect, it was in perfect condition. The screen had just let out a little more, to give into the tension (of our puppy bolting “through” the door) and then retracted back into place! Amazing!
Each screen is custom made for your home and the installation is seamless so when the screen is retracted you don’t even notice it’s there. There are 10 standard colors to choose from but countless custom colors to match any home, including wood tones.
We had a second screen installed on the glass door in our eating area, and it’s a different color from the one we put on the front door because the door color is different.
Not only are the color and sizing options custom for every home but you can also choose from a wide range of mesh options. Choose from mesh that stops bugs, lets the fresh air in, gives you privacy or provides shade from the sun, there’s an option for every need!
We chose the standard – keep bugs out – screens and I’ve been really impressed, they work far better than any of our other traditional screens.
Whether you have a single traditional door, French doors, double door or sliding door Phantom Screens will work. They also make them for windows! We absolutely LOVE our Phantom Screens and I know you will too!
Happy Spring everyone!
