Your deck is the heart of your outdoor living space, not only as the place where you can enjoy the weather, but also as your space for entertaining throughout the summer. While the open air of a deck can be great in the spring and early summer, you may also enjoy a screen porch for warmer nights outside. If you’re looking to change up your deck this year, here are four reasons to consider transforming yours into a screen porch.
Added Privacy for Your Space
In addition to providing shade on some of the brightest days, screen porches add an element of privacy to your outdoor space as well. With the perimeter of your deck screened into a room, you’ll not only get added privacy from anyone who can see into your yard, but also added privacy with noises that may otherwise carry out of your yard, such as during parties or baseball games.
Versatility for Use Throughout the Year
By adding a screen porch to your home, you are also extending your living space to an additional room that can be used throughout the year. Even in the fall and early winter months, the temperature of your screen porch can be regulated in various ways so you can keep using your space comfortably in any weather.
Extending Your Living Space
Your screen porch can also serve as a beautiful extension of your living room or kitchen, depending on where it is most attached. Rather than a clear separation to your outdoor space, your screen porch can be made to feel like an extension of either room, giving you both a cohesive design and functional space for your home.
Keeping Bugs Away on Summer Nights
Enjoying your deck on a summer night can be great, except for when bugs decide to crash your party. A screen porch is a great way to keep enjoying your summer evenings without bugs pestering your guests throughout the evening. This will also make dining outside more enjoyable in any season, as your bug-free screen porch can stay as clean as a room in your home.
