What Is This Lanai Thing That Floridians Talk About?

One of the first questions potential Florida Plungers ask is “What’s that around your pool?”.  


Most of us were introduced to the word lanai while watching the classic tv show “Golden Girls” back in the mid-80s. However, even though Blanche, Rose, Dorothy and Sophia spent many an episodes saying their were going out on their lanai, many people however outside of Florida do not what they were talking ab out.

So what is a Lanai?   In definition it’s a porch or veranda.

In Florida, a lanai is considered to be any covered area outside of the house, typically screened in, that is used as a living space. Most lanais are furnished.  Some will simply have chairs and chaise lounges, others will have dining tables, televisions, and more.


A must have in your lanai is a ceiling fan.  This will make sitting outside comfortable, even on hot days. We use our lanai just about every day.  Our lanai is truly our favorite room in our home.


And let’s not forget that caged pool.  Well we can enjoy that all year long!
