You are going to get many wonderful benefits from your
new screened porch, but be aware there are undesirable secondary effects that catch
many people off guard. Since these structures are almost always added to a home,
the natural light entering the finished room adjacent to the screened porch is always
significantly diminished. That room will be darker, so it may need additional artificial
lighting to compensate. You can add can lights to the affected room or skylights
in the screened porch to help get additional light into the house.

are more than a worthy financial investment for the homeowner. They are an investment
in the good life, providing us with a place to pause from a hectic life, to
gather with others, to extend the vision of our lives beyond ourselves. These
structures remind all of us that no home is an island.

there are any number of reasons our back yards are all but abandoned these days,
with some effort and creativity, a screened porch can turn a problem into a
design opportunity and add value and interest to your home.
A studio roof is a single slopped roofline that will
add a more uniformed elevation to the appearance inside the room. The studio
roof is a more economical roof style, which may blend better on some houses
then other more expensive roof styles.
A cathedral (or gabled)
roof adds interest by providing an elevated peak to the center of the roof.
This roofline has two sections, sloping to each side of the porch. On the inside,
it adds additional height, creating a larger feel to the room. This is the most
popular roof style for screened porches.
hip roof is very similar to the cathedral roof with one slight difference. This
roofline adds one more additional slope to the front of the porch creating three
slopes to the roofline.
Skylights will add
more light to, as well as better views from your screened porch. There should
be consideration to the amount the roof slopes when adding skylights so that
leaking does not become an issue. Skylights can be ordered as either operable
(ones that open for more ventilation) or inoperable (fixed and non-opening).
When adding a screened porch to any house, the
intended use is important to consider. Most people add a ceiling fan as a way
to help circulate the air as well as outlets for floor lamps to increase additional
lighting options inside the room. Depending on county codes, you may be required
to have a light near the door on the outside of the room that is either motion
sensitive or connected to a switch.
A gas or wood-burning
fireplace will ensure the room is comfortable on chilly spring and fall evenings.
During cooler weather also extend the screen room's use. However, they can limit
design possibilities. In a room with only screens, you aren't limited by window
sizes and can use larger pieces of screening. This provides more of an outdoor
feeling, but the trade-off is less refined, all-weather furniture and more dirt
A screened room for
entertaining, for example, may require a fireplace and wide-screen TV, stereo
surround sound, larger seating area, and a popcorn maker!
Enclosed Screen Porch Ideas
Enclosing a porch with a screen is a great way to
enjoy an outdoor space through the entire year. It will keep you out of the
elements and free from bug attacks. There are a number of elements to consider
when creating an enclosed screen porch to make it a tranquil retreat that invites
everyone to enjoy.
Creating Useful Space
Screened porches are a great way to increase the space
of an interior dining area. If you have sliding glass doors that open to a porch
from your dining room, you can enclose this to make semi-outdoor eating areas
free from flies and mosquitoes.
Create a sun room kids can get fresh air all day,
regardless of rain or sun. Screened porches make great playrooms to hold toys
and games, even video games if the roof and flooring are water-tight.
If you are an artist looking for a spot that has
lots of light, inspirational views and fresh air, an enclosed patio is a perfect
option. You can gaze from the porch to the sunset while capturing it with your
where the door is that leads from the porch to the inside of the home. A door
at the corner of the porch can reduce the usable space of the porch because
you need to allow clear entry and exit.
A vaulted ceiling would make the room seem larger,
opening it up not just to the landscape but upwards to the sky. You may also
want to add a quiet ceiling fan to circulate air during days when there is no
Front porches are great locations for a porch swing.
You can also keep delicate potted herbs on a front porch away from harsh sunlight.
If you are enclosing a wooden deck porch, remember that
any cracks or grooves in the flooring will allow insects to crawl up.
You can place a screen from top to bottom or create
a series of panels that create a wall. This may be waist-high with screen going
to the ceiling. Creating nice frames for the screen to keep it taught.
If you are building a a porch from scratch, think
about the furniture you want to put there and the activities the porch will
serve. Create a porch large enough to not seem cluttered.
