Are you looking for beautiful porch ideas in the Lake Wylie area? Look no further! We have been designing and building front and back porches for 26 years in and around the area and have thousands of home photos for great design ideas!
You can go to Pinterest or Houzz and see all kinds of photos but to really dial in on the market with screen porch or covered deck and patio photos, you have to check out http://www.charlotte.archadeck.com to see Carolina outdoor living ideas.
Let’s start with material considerations. If you like a more rustic porch, why not go with a beautiful stained cedar that you can have nice wide porch columns and trim. Have the roofing match your existing home so that it looks as if the porch were built with the home. In addition, have your gutter, soffit and fascia all material and color matched to blend in nicely.
Secondly, flooring options can make a big difference. If you want that rustic feel, either stained wood deck boards or a tongue and groove material for the porch floor works well. If you want a more finished or contemporary look, have the floor tiled with a Travertine or ceramic tile.
Think about integrating an outdoor fireplace right into the porch design for year around comfort and incredible beauty. Drop shades or outdoor curtains are wonderful options to block the sun from you as it shines in brightly below the roof line. Don’t forget the electrical options when designing your dream porch. Of course you want ceiling fans, plenty of outlets, can lights, and perhaps TV for those that truly want to live outdoors.
If you enjoy entertaining, think about a built in bar station with an ice maker and also a cooking station with a vent hood! The possibilities are really endless with porches and the amenities people are adding seem to grow every year. It’s best to begin with the end in mind. In other words, have the entire design completed prior to construction so that if you do the project in phases, it looks like it was done all at once when completed!
