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 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.
