When you need a reliable home improvement team in your corner, look to Centennial Construction & Remodeling Services, Inc. We can help make these changes and more!
1. Add an Outdoor Kitchen
If you and your family love to entertain outside, adding an outdoor kitchen area to your enclosed porch is a great option. Everyone knows that the kitchen and the backyard are two of the most popular places to gather. So, why not get the best of both worlds? Your new outdoor space can include a mini-fridge, a place for your grill, and plenty of counter space for all those side dishes and party platters.
2. Include a Faux Fireplace
Just because your back porch is outside your home doesn’t mean you can’t make it feel cozy and inviting. Adding a faux chimney and mantel, and installing an electric or gas fireplace is a great way to make this space more welcoming. Not only will you find that it’s nice to cozy up in front of the fire, but you won’t have to worry about all of the mess that comes with burning logs.
3. Hang a Sunbed
Sunbeds are like those backyard hammocks, only suspended from the inside of your enclosed porch instead of between trees. These oversized porch swings are great for afternoon naps and enjoying that spring and summer air. It’s also a great place for your guests to sit back and relax. Complete the look with a side table, floor rug, and matching pillows for a new, useful space.
4. Install New Windows
When most people picture enclosed porches, they probably imagine a screen is the only thing standing between them and Mother Nature. But that doesn’t have to be the case for your space. When you work with home remodeling professionals, you’ll find how easy it is to include actual windows in your enclosed porch design. With windows to help shield your porch from the elements, you can surely enjoy this space and the flood of natural light, no matter the season.
5. Consider Skylights
Skylights allow so much extra sun and warmth into your enclosed porch. Yet, they’re not often considered an option. Hiring professionals to come in and install skylights in your enclosed porch will certainly complete your look, making your porch feel more open and airy. You’ll not only enjoy the hours of sunshine beaming in, but you’ll also enjoy stargazing from the comfort of your indoor patio furniture.
