How Big Should My Porch Be?

This is a question many of our clients ask us when considering the addition of an open or screened-in porch.

Here at Archadeck of Central South Carolina, we like to meet with our clients during the planning stages of any porch project. During this meeting, we’ll work together to determine the size your porch needs to be to accommodate all your needs.

Your Custom Screen Room

A screened room, or screened porch, is very similar to a sunroom. The difference is that rather than using glass windows, we use fiberglass screens to let the breeze flow freely through the room, creating a space that invites the outdoors in.

Many Columbia-area homeowners have an idea of what they are looking for but may not know whether it is considered a sunroom, screen room, or an addition:

  • Screen porches and sunrooms both allow you to enjoy the outdoors while avoiding unwanted elements of nature, such as mosquitoes or rain.
  • A sunroom or addition is an actual interior room that requires insulation and conditioning elements, such as heating and cooling.

Knowing how and when your family will use the room will help you decide which style best suits your needs.

What Is the Difference Between a Screened Porch and 3-Season Room?

Interpretation is sometimes cloudy when it comes to screened porches and 3-season rooms. These designations could be different depending on where you live and which builder you ask. In some parts of the country, you might find that builders consider screened porches to be 3-season rooms. At Archadeck of Central South Carolina, we define them separately, but they are not mutually exclusive. We might also call a screened porch a screened room, outdoor room, or screened-in porch.

A Room with a View

In the South, there’s a special meaning to wide open. Take a look at this open porch below. It’s like an open and airy resort hideaway right in your own backyard — placing you at one with all of Mother Nature’s majesty.

Let us bring your vision to life! We can build the porch of your dreams, even on a budget.

We can also design your porch to include the beloved finish details that are so prevalent in our area, from a relaxed rocking chair front porch vibe to a blue porch interior ceiling. Another favored element is the integration of an outdoor fireplace into your porch or screened porch design.

When it comes to creating a custom porch design for your home, aesthetics are not the only consideration. A custom Columbia porch design is as much about how you will use your porch as it is about the way your porch will look.
