Welcome to our Screened Porch Design topics - an extensive hub from which you can plan, design, build, and decorate your porch enclosure.



In collaboration with custom screen porch builders, Mary and I have assembled an array of information and pictures to give you oodles of screened porch design ideas.

The two of us love screen porches - so much that we actually bought a home just for the porch. A screen porch not only gives you additional living space but also allows you to enjoy the outdoors in comfort.

Don't make this screened porch design mistake...

The major error most people make with their screened porch design is size. Most people make them too small and wish later they had made it a just a "little" larger once they begin placing furniture.

Planning makes all the difference. Whether you are building your porch yourself, using a kit or hiring an architect or contractor, start with pencil and paper. Your screened porch design should be given thoughtful planning.

The screen porch pictured below called for a 16' X 18' screened porch with cathedral ceilings. Note the ceramic tile flooring and wainscoting on both the walls and ceiling.

Multiple power outlets were installed in the walls and ceiling in addition to a cable hook up. Skylights were installed in the roof. These are but a few of the many things you can have on your screen porch.

  • You can convert an existing patio slab, brick, or deck to screen porches easily. Enclose your existing porch or portion of your porch into a screen porch. Or, start from scratch and build it to your own specifications.

  • Another great screen porch design idea is to use existing screen porch plans and modify them to suit your specific needs.

  • You can usually easily adapt your screen porch to a sun room by adding glass panels and perhaps a space heater depending on your climate. We did this in Nebraska and were able to use our porch almost year round!

  • Another option is to have an architect draw your screen porch plans to your specifications. They will ensure it blends with your home's architecture to make your screen porch the envy of the neighborhood.
