One thing that’s a big consideration when adding a porch to your home is how it will affect the view and light from your current interior windows. You want a bright and airy room on the back of your home but you don’t want to compromise all of the light you currently get.
Archadeck of Piedmont Triad recently overcame that challenge while designing a screened porch in the Wesley Park Community of Kernersville, NC. The owners wanted to add airy, functional living space to the rear of their home, but didn’t want to compromise the peaceful wooded view they enjoyed from inside. We devised a solution that enables them to enjoy the view from inside their home through the window and all around them from the porch.
There were several keys to success for this project. The first was to use wide-screened openings that minimize the obstruction of the view while maximizing the penetration of the light and air. The second was to use lots of wood in the construction of the porch that complements the colors of the trees in the area–the porch dividers blend into the background with little visual disturbance. The porch is also longer than it is wide, so the porch roof doesn’t block very much natural light to the window. A black metal belly rail looks ornamental, but provides additional safety for animals and children.
The porch has stairs matched to the rail that connect the porch to the yard and the existing patio, providing easy access to the brick patio and stunning backyard. Both the patio and porch have seating areas, so it’s easy to choose where to relax based on their mood or the weather. The beaded plywood ceiling and wood-toned ceiling fan fit in seamlessly with the rest of the space and look far more expensive than their actual cost.
We were thrilled that when our clients were looking for a Kernersville porch builder that they chose us. We enjoyed the challenge of making the most of that focal point window from both inside and out. We are delighted that our project provides not just shade and bug protection, but adds enormously to the value and enjoyment of their home year-round.
