Bringing Nature Home
Those of us who live on a swatch of the planet that allows for a backyard are lucky. But once in a while, some of us lucky ones can be seen outside swatting insects, or inside on our toes, trying to catch a glimpse of the great outdoors through the kitchen window, while doing dishes.
As long as you have access to it, why not find an economical way to bring nature into your home? Patios and pergolas are all very nice, but you need bug and rain protection to really enjoy an outdoor living space.
Enter the Screened-in Sunroom
There are several different types of screened-in rooms, and they can be surprisingly affordable. The screens of today are also much improved over the old metallic screens of yesteryear. Dark, non-glare and unobtrusive, they provide a near-invisible force that lets in all of nature’s good elements and keeps out the bad ones.
There is nothing, after all, like a cold glass of lemonade on a bugless porch in mid-July. The scope, design, style, and quality of your new indoor-outdoor room are limited only by your imagination and wallet. If you already have a porch or an attached patio, it makes sense to use that space as the existing floor and foundation of your new screened-in space. Likewise, if your home happens to have a portion of the roof that juts out, you might consider using that for all or part of the roof above your new screened-in room.
It is also possible to add a screen room to your home without an existing roof or patio. These types of additions will take more pre-planning, pre-construction and a higher budget, but they are an option.
Upgrade Before You've Even Started
Finally, think about the real reason for creating an indoor-outdoor space. If you’re just interested in a place to bask without a fly swatter, a screened-in room will do fine. There are many other wonderful uses for a screened in room, so think about your own lifestyle before you make your decision. You may decide to upgrade to a fully glassed all season sunroom that will be a haven for you, the family, and the pets all year long.
