A screened porch can instantly add another living space to your home. With so many ways to deck out an enclosed porch, it’s sure to become a family favorite gathering space. This type of addition offers versatility and multifunction. Let’s browse some of the exciting options that we’re able to add to a screened porch.

Add Entertainment Elements

Even with a small footprint, a screened porch can be designed for maximum comfort and seating. By adding in comfy seating, an outdoor TV, speakers and lighting, you can transform a once unused space into a place everyone gathers for relaxed evenings. Imagine feeling the cool breeze while you snuggle up in some soft blankets, watching a movie together as a family and feeling surrounded by the outdoors (without the nagging pests!). Some homeowners even opt for a built-in porch swing, which, decked out in pillows and cushions can become the focal point of this space.

Plant Lovers Rejoice

Your screened-in porch provides the perfect place to indulge in any houseplant hobby. Not only will this give you a place to keep those houseplants, they’ll add a gorgeous natural feel to your screened porch. You can also add in skylights that will allow extra sun to shine, helping your plants to grow. This also has the added benefit of being a peaceful stargazing space for a perfect autumn night.

Comfort is Key

Today’s screened porches are all about maximizing comfort. Ceiling fans not only provide continuous air circulation, they’ll provide that coastal feel that gives your porch that resort vibe. Keep the entertaining going even into the chilly months with heaters or a natural or electric fireplace. Just picture sipping warm apple cider or hot cocoa well into the fall, with a crackling fireplace giving that cozy feeling that’s perfect for sharing stories and laughs (and maybe even some s’mores) through to winter’s first freeze.

An Indoor/Outdoor Kitchen

Today’s screened porches are more than just a place to sit. They are for entertaining, cooking and dining as well. Many screened porches can even accommodate a full-sized dining table. To make entertaining easier, consider adding in kitchen elements to your screened porch space. This can be as simple as a sink or coffee bar or as elaborate as a full kitchen set-up. Grill in peace without all of the nuisances of that unexpected thunderstorm or wasps threatening your good time. A grill can be vented out to provide all the safety and air quality you need. Add in plenty of countertop space for food prep and consider a wine chiller or mini-fridge. You’ll soon be brunching out on your porch, hosting parties with ease and enjoying your favorite beverage in this serene space.
