Visualize the Right Size For Your Porch and Three-Season Rooms

What is the best size for a new porch or three-season room? This is a common design dilemma for our clients. In a recent blog on porch size considerations, we shared that two of our most common porch sizes are 14 x 16 and 23 x 14. For some people, knowing these dimensions is all they need. For others, making these measurements more visible is a helpful step. If visual examples of dimensions would help you, check out the various porch sizes with accompanying photos below.

*Tip: Remember that furniture size has an impact on space and space planning. If you don’t already have outdoor furniture you are planning to use for a new space, you may want to research this before finalizing your porch size decision.

Porches Under 200 Square Feet

At Archadeck of Raleigh-Durham, we design and build custom porches and three-season rooms in all shapes and sizes. The scale that is right for you should meet your functional needs and your budget, and be scaled to your home's square footage.

Small porches can be functional, inviting, and still feel spacious with the right shape and furniture. Check out these pint-sized Archadeck porches, and see how homeowners have maximized every square inch:

Porches Between 200 and 300 Square Feet

Whether you're building a screened porch, an open porch, or a three-season room, greater size can offer more functionality. Porches in the 200-300 square foot range are the most common for Raleigh area homeowners. This size can provide space for a dining nook, cozy conversation area, or even both! Browse the examples below for inspiration.
