Looking for screen porch design ideas?


In Charlotte, NC, nearly everyone wants a screen porch. They can be quite simple with slanted or a shed roof and a basic shape with screen and a door. Or…

Our design ideas begin with looking at your home’s roof line and imagining what would be the appropriate architectural fit whether its a gable roof, a shed roof, a gazebo style roof, or even a flat roof.

Then we look at colors of your home and the trim color. There are two primary routes we take. Depending on what you are trying to achieve, we can go with a rustic porch look or try to make the porch look as though it was part of the home rather than an addition. This is done through color and roof line.

By changing the size of the columns supporting the roof can make your porch seem more substantial and even decorative. In addition, adding architectural trim such as crown molding under the ceiling or dental molding to the exterior along with trim out the columns can make the porch more formal.
