What does the screened-in porch of your dreams look like? Is it large and airy or smaller and more cozy? Do you prefer a rustic feel with warm wooden beams or a quiet, classic space trimmed in grays and whites? At Archadeck of Raleigh-Durham, we design custom screened-in porches in all shapes and sizes. We enjoy helping our clients select the best plan, materials, and building features to achieve their design goals. Below are some examples of different screened-in porches we’ve created over the years. We hope they provide fresh inspiration for your screened-in porch planning.
Raleigh-Durham Screened-In Porch Ideas
Harmonious Porch Architecture
This expansive screened-in porch complements the architecture of our clients’ home with a customized roof tie-in. By incorporating both a shed and hip roof design, we were able to mirror the home’s unique roofline while tying the new structure into the existing home building.
Alternative Porch Flooring
This beautiful three-season room features porcelain tile flooring. This tile keeps our clients’ porch cooler in summer and is very easy to clean. There are several types of interior flooring materials available. Flooring is an important enhancement to any screened-in porch or three-season room.
Vaulted Porch Ceilings
A vaulted ceiling is a beautiful feature of this Triangle porch. Vaulted ceilings not only look good, they also make a porch feel larger and let more light into the space.
What type of ceiling would you like to see in your dream porch? Porch ceilings can be as finished or unfinished as you like. Sometimes the home’s existing roofline dictates the type of roof that can be built on a porch but, if not, there are many options to consider.
As showcased in this beautiful and rustic porch, a fireplace can be the ultimate luxury in an outdoor living space. While there are some portable options for warming up on a cool night, a built-in fireplace can add much more than heat. This porch fireplace is a focal feature of the room, it provides a bit of privacy screening on one side of the porch, and it now serves as a favorite spot for these homeowners to curl up and watch television.
Many Triangle homeowners enjoy watching television outdoors. Whether cheering on their favorite sports team, binge-watching their favorite television series, or hosting a family movie night, adding media options to a porch allows homeowners to enjoy the best of both indoor and outdoor living. If watching television is one of your porch goals, check out this feature story about how to add a television to your porch.
Bronze or Black Porch Window Frames
In recent years, interior design trends have been expanding from white or light-colored window frames to darker colors. Likewise, in outdoor living spaces, these trends have made bronze and black porch window frames a popular design choice. Darker colors are much more versatile than you might think. Dark colors still act as a neutral color, they can match many architectural styles, and they distract less from your view of the outdoors.
