Upstate Screen Scapes

Serving Upstate South Carolina

Phantom Screens partners with Southern Living® Magazine

The official motorized retractable screen provider for the highly anticipated Southern Living 2023 Idea House.

Phantom Screens partners with Southern Living, expanding indoor/outdoor living on their 2023 Idea House in Nashville, TN. The home sits on more than 60 acres of farmland, and with primary living spaces with stunning views and a color palette tailored to emphasize the natural scenery. This sustainable smart home is full of Southern charm.

Any home in the South knows a charming Southern space needs bug protection, and the Southern Living Idea House 2023 was no exception. With a fresh patio space ready for entertaining, Phantom Screens, with the help of Somfy, got this space from bug city to a dinner party oasis.

This charming home is full of modern comfort and Southern hospitality. With 12 motorized retractable screens seamlessly integrated into its design, it effortlessly merges indoor and outdoor living.

The upper porch boasts five Phantom motorized dual roller screens, surrounding the outdoor living & dining room and outdoor kitchen & grill, offering the home protection from the bugs with the mesh, or climate-controlled spaced with the clear vinyl. This upper patio is ready for hosting all season long!

Meanwhile, on the lower porch, two Phantom motorized screens offer a cozy space for restful slumber and a lower patio off the billiards room, making it a haven for tranquil evenings and lively gatherings.

These additions allow its residents to enjoy endless entertaining any time of the year bug free, pollen protected, and temperature controlled.

Mesh & Fabric Options

Your screen's material gives you a surprising amount of control over what comes in and out of your space. Choose a tighter or looser mesh—or even vinyl or blackout fabric—for your ideal combination of air, light, heat, and bugs.
