Screened-In Porches, The Best of Both Worlds

Screened-in porches offer the perfect mix of indoor and outdoor living.

The Kansas City area lends itself beautifully to screened porch living. Archadeck of Kansas City has been building custom screen porches since 2001 and as time has passed, they have become a staple for homeowners in our area. Where once decks were automatically placed on new homes, we are now seeing homes built with a screened spaces right out of the gate. But if your home doesn’t have a screened-in porch, maybe it should. Here are a few reasons why!

Screened-in porches offer a unique living experience.

Because screened in porches are not wholly an indoor or outdoor living space, they truly are unique additions. Screen porches provide sanctuary from the elements and insects yet allow you to have the feeling of being outdoors. At the same time, they also afford creature comforts that are found inside our homes. In this way, a screened porch feels cozier and more comfortable than an open deck or patio.

When can you use a screened in porch?

In mild months, like mid-springtime through late autumn, our custom screen porches are plug-and-play. You need only walk out to your porch and enjoy. During cooler periods of time, like early springtime, late fall, and winter, your screened porch can provide unexpected use. Most of our porches are designed with radiant heating that is perfect for warming up the space on cool days. Additionally, many of our porches have outdoor fireplaces for even more warmth and ambiance. Really? A screened porch is usable in the winter in the Kansas City area? Yep!

On Christmas Day 2019 and 2021, an Archadeck screened porch would have offered a lovely space for entertaining loved ones – the temperatures on those days were 66°F and 56°F, respectively.

What makes screened-in porches a superior choice to a 4-season room?

What we at Archadeck of Kansas City have found through our years in business, is that many clients that come to us for a 4-season space really would be better suited with a screened-in porch. Through our design consultation, we can discern each client’s true outdoor living needs. Our Design Consultants are versed at matching clients to their ideal space, and as such, have turned sunroom clients into screen porch clients. How?

One simple question can help us arrive at the answer: Do you have ample indoor living space? If the clients answer affirmatively to this query, we always recommend a screened-in porch in lieu of a full-scale indoor room addition, which is exactly what a sunroom/4-season room is.
