Whether you have been living in the same home for 20 years and are looking for ways to change up your space or you are just preparing to move into your fixer-upper, transforming your deck into a screened-in porch can be a fantastic decision. Here are some of the biggest benefits that come along with a new screened-in porch.
More Space to Enjoy the Outdoors
Screened-in porches are an amazing compromise between the great outdoors and the inside of your home. If you love sitting outside with a good book and a glass of iced tea in the summer, an addition or sunroom might lack the breezy and fresh feel of sitting on the porch. However, a screened-in porch can provide you with the breeze you long to feel and the lack of bugs swarming around your sweet tea you need.
Use Your Space Wisely
Screened in porches can allow you to use things you wouldn’t typically use on an exposed porch outdoors and feel safer about doing so. You might not leave outdoor speakers or ceiling fans near your typical porch, as that’s just asking for a rainstorm overhead. However, with a screened-in porch you can safely leave and enjoy electronics outdoors during all but the most severe rainstorms. Make sure to still use outdoor-rated products for your ceiling fans, lights, and furniture, as the humidity and heat they face during Maryland summers will cause them to droop and get damaged over time.
Increase Your Curb Appeal
Screened-in porches offer an awesome return on investment if you are planning on selling your home in the future. They increase the resale value of your home and add a major boost to the curb appeal, as a picnic outdoors with no mosquitos is almost every homeowner’s dream.
