The next step is to determine how many full-size panels you’ll need. Each panel is 14-3/4 in. wide, measured from the center of one post to the center of the next. The panel closest to the house will most likely be a different width (Photo 5). If you need a narrower panel, reduce the space between the posts and decrease the width of the slats.
Even if you love your neighbors (but especially if you don’t) there are times you want to add privacy to your deck or porch. The same is true of a patio. While you may love to entertain, you also may love to just sit in peace.
Another idea is to use lattice panels to build privacy screens for the deck or patio. Create frames for each one, stain or paint them and glue the panels to the wood frame. Drill holes on the ends of the frames and put eyescrews in them.
If you want a more permanent solution, some deck privacy screens can be installed right into the floor of your deck or attached to your deck railing. Most deck privacy screens are configurable panels so you can angle them in different positions depending on how you want to set up your deck.
