A few weeks ago, we wrote on the benefits of the three-season porch. Check out that article here. This week, we want to touch on its close relative – the screened-in porch below an upper level deck.
If you already have an upper level deck, then you have somehow dedicated use to the space below it. Maybe it’s rocks, landscaping, or a lawn chair or two. Why not take it to the next level? With just a little remodeling work, you can have a new outdoor room to enjoy.
The benefits of a screened-in porch below your deck?
- The comforts of shade
- An outdoor escape free of bugs
- Usable space for dining or entertaining
- A better transition from your lower level to your yard
- Additional privacy in your yard
- The ability to add a ceiling fan
- Can use indoor furniture and décor
Looking for ideas? Houzz has no shortage of examples – peak at photos of screened-in porches below decks here.
