The Space Below Your Deck – A Screened-In Porch Waiting to Happen

A few weeks ago, we wrote on the benefits Screened in porchof the three-season porch.  Check out that article hereThis 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.
