Top Features of High-End Screened-In Porches in Maryland

Your screened-in porch does not have to be boring whatsoever

Are you a Maryland resident that wants a high-end screened-in porch? Well, you’re in luck! Today we’re going to discuss what features your screened-in porch needs to have for it to be considered “high-end.” Every homeowner is different and has unique design tastes. Your screened-in porch does not have to be boring whatsoever. However, there are a few consistent features that will make your outdoor living space more luxurious. Here they are:

Vaulted Ceilings

Vaulted ceilings are arched and higher than your standard roof. Cathedral roofs fall under this category. These roofs are ideal if you want your space to seem more open and larger than it might be. Architects have even called them an optical illusion because of the design effects that they have. 

Columns Made From PVC or Natural Wood

PVC is a superior material because of its durability, longevity, and the fact that it is weather and rot-resistant. We can glue, putty, and paint the PVC to your columns. Wood is also a superior material. For one, it’s environmentally-friendly, an excellent insulator, and when built the right way, any infrastructure made from pressure-treated wood can last 100-150 years.

A Composite or Metal Railing System

Composite railing can beautify a screened-in porch, and it’s incredibly durable. It’s only low-maintenance and stain-resistant. The same goes for metal railing systems. Metal railing, in particular, is resistant to UV rays. When it’s hot out, you don’t have to worry about the color fading away. 


Decking is the most crucial aspect to screened-in porch design. It’s the focal point and the most used part of the outdoor living space. Connectors need to be sturdy and visually pleasing. Steel joists and framing achieves this. 

Electronic Features

What better way to make a screened-in porch high-end than to add ceiling fans, heating systems, televisions, and entertainment systems? These features are perfect if you want to host a family movie night or invite extended family and friends over. A common misconception is that the purpose of screened porches is only for keeping bugs out and bad weather, but no, you can turn it into another room. 

Matching the Interior and Exterior

If you want the  screened-in porch in your Maryland home to look high-end, it should match the interior of your home. Once again, you can make it look like another room versus just a porch. You can do so by designing it to match one of your interior living spaces.
