Looking for a way to combine the comfort of your indoor space with the natural beauty of your outdoor space? Many homeowners find screened in porches, or even screened in decks, to be the perfect compromise. The basic principle is the same: a traditional deck or porch with a screen that runs around the typically open spaces to protect the interior from adverse weather. But when you choose a custom deck or porch, you can go far beyond the norm. It's simply a question of finding the ideas that inspire you.

Vaulted Ceilings

Too often, screened in porches or decks can start to feel boxy or confined. Fortunately, this can be avoided by using a little creativity when it comes to structural design. One popular choice is vaulted ceilings. Vaulted ceilings look rustic, elegant, and homey. They can both make the bold statement you need in your porch or deck design and help you to feel comfortable and at home in them. Attach an interesting light fixture to draw the eye further to your great ceilings.

Screened In Gazebo

Typically, when it comes to screened in decks, the whole deck is not screened. After all, that would defeat the purpose of the deck. The screened portion is meant to be a reprieve from adverse weather like rain or scorching sun. There are a few ways you can design this, but personally, we love a screened in gazebo attached to your deck. It adds style and elegance while also making a distinction between the screened and open part of the deck.

Classy Window Treatments

When it comes to screened in porches especially, often there's still a desire for privacy that porch screens simply don't provide. In that case, you can add window treatments to give you privacy when you need it and a more open feeling when you want it. Your window treatments can also add to the atmosphere of the room and the style. Curtains can provide an airy feeling that gives you privacy without taking away from the openness of the screened in porch. Plantation shutters offer a more classic feeling to complement the rest of the porch.
