With this in mind, the location of your new screen porch plays an important role in its function and your ability to enjoy it during the year.
Placement and Accessibility
Consider the accessibility of your screen porch from other points of your home. Should you add stairs or a ramp? With this in mind, it is essential to consider whether or not everyone in your family can access this room safely and comfortably as you entertain. Your new screen porch should be a place in your home where everyone can enjoy time outdoors and feel comfortable at the same time. In considering this, it is crucial to keep the floor level and the room open, so that is easily accessible.
Details and Finishing Touches
Once your screen porch is built, your details and finishing touches will play an essential role in making it feel like a part of your home.
