Covered Porch Ideas
If you are looking for a more beautiful entrance into the front of your home or possibly looking for that southern rocking chair porch, Archadeck has you covered – literally and figuratively.
Here are just 5 covered porch ideas for your consideration.
- Front Porch: Hospitable Nashville neighborhoods rejoice in a communal front covered porch, where family, friends, and neighbors meet, or we can offer a salutation to passers-by. A covered front porch can offer a space of respite or gathering comfort and will indeed add designer appeal to the front of your home. Embellished with rocking chairs, seasonal décor, and custom lighting, your new front covered porch can become the talk of the neighborhood.
- Pavilion Covered Porch: A pavilion is a detached porch, which can also be called a covered patio. Pavilions are popular for expansive backyards or those with pools, where the roof shelter will facilitate comfort and protection beyond the confines of your home. Amenities you might find in a backyard pavilion are outdoor fireplaces, built-in outdoor kitchens, lighting and ceiling fans, or radiant heating, which make the space super-functional. A pavilion can become your backyard home a few steps away from home.
- Covered Porch or Open Porch: The terms “open porch” and “covered porch” are interchangeable. This type of porch offers a roof for protection from rain and sun, with open sides for full breezes and a feeling of airiness. These covered porch structures also often feature electrical components, such as lighting and fans. Your covered porch can offer many hours of enjoyment each year, with a multitude of personal uses and opportunities for entertaining.
- Covered Screened Porch: As the name denotes, a covered screened porch has screen-covered openings to allow natural air flow. Screened covered porches are very popular for their added protection from the elements, insects, and rodents. Covered screened porches are often used for outdoor living rooms and dining rooms. These also often include outdoor fireplaces, and all electrical accommodations for TVs, lighting, heating, and fans. Homeowners also often include an accompanying grill deck, which furthers the function of a screened porch as an outdoor dining venue.
- Multi-Season Covered Porch: A multi-season covered porch, also referred to as a 3-season porch or 4-season porch, is also often called a sunroom. The term “sunroom” typically refers to an actual room addition, which includes framed walls, insulation, and some sort of HVAC accommodation to make it usable year-round. A multi-season porch can also be used in all four seasons but includes the addition of vinyl windows to screened openings, rather than insulated walls.
Covered Porch Designs
Our design philosophy for new and upgraded covered porches begins with functionality. Traffic flow is taken into consideration for the best functional use of your covered porch space. We examine your specific needs for entrance and exit flow, foot traffic, and functionality.
We also take your outdoor furniture into account — because a picnic table needs a different porch space than a round umbrella table would.
You’ll be amazed at the way your Archadeck covered porch design blends seamlessly with your home’s exterior architecture and yet still manages to stand out as the masterpiece of your property.
To cover your new porch or not – that is the question. The answer lies in what is important to you.
