Picture your family enjoying a relaxing meal, or throwing a small party for the neighbors in the comfort of your new screened porch. Adding a screened porch to your home provides ample benefits, including increased home value, added space, and a place to enjoy the outdoors, free from the elements, sun and insects. The benefits of a screened porch all depend on how you and your family plan on using the space:
Some benefits of a screened porch include:
- Keep Bugs Away from Your Family – Enjoy the out-of-doors without being harassed by insects and bugs. Being outside can be a pleasant experience until you start dealing with swarms of mosquitoes, flies, bees and wasps. Having a screened porch allows you to relish the outdoors without having to deal with pests.
- A Safe Outdoor Environment for Children – The perfect outdoor play area, even on a rainy day, a screened in porch provides a safe, enclosed space for your family to experience the outdoors.
- Increase the Value of Your Home – A screened porch adds value to your home, as well as significant curb appeal. When homebuyers look at a home, they want to picture their family enjoying the space. A screened porch can be that special added touch that seals the deal.
- A Second Family Room for Quality Time – A screened porch is a great place to build new memories with your family. A screened in porch lets your family spend quality time together, eating meals, playing games and having great conversation.
- Entertain Your Guests and Throw Great Outdoor Parties – Your neighbors, friends and family members can use your new screened enclosure as a place to celebrate, enjoy each other’s company, or simply relax in the outdoors.
- Escape for Some Quiet Time – Because it can be closed off from the interior of your home, a screened porch can give you and your family a separate environment to take a nap, read a book, or simply get some peace and quiet.
- Get Creative With the Décor – Unlike the rest of your home, a screened-in porch is easy to get creative with the design, and there are no hard and fast rules to stick to. Any style or theme you can envision can work on a porch, and the décor and furnishings are less expensive and easier to experiment with.
