Screen porch privacy

Hi. I want to add more privacy to my screened in patio. Should I paint the outside of the screening silver or black?

Rather than trying to paint the screening, I would suggest replacing it with either sunscreen or pet screen. Either one work just like a metal security door, in that you can see out from the inside, but you can't see in from the outside.

Sun and heavy pet screen offer more privacy when it is brighter on the outside than the inside. During the day you can see out and is hard to see into your screened porch. At night it will be easy to see inside your porch if you have the lights on (neighbors can see in but you can't see out).
