There are many different methods to create an enclosed deck. A few types that are not common are a series of sliding doors that may be extended to close off the outside from annoyances, such as bugs or noise. When a clear and open deck is desired, the homeowner simply has to open the overlapping extended doors to return to the outside. Other configurations include actually creating a wall with screened windows, although this almost like adding a finished new addition.
Granted, in inclement weather, most people don't enjoy contending with the rain, snow, or wind. The wisest investment would be to incorporate a new deck or existing deck under a covered or screened in setup. This is the only way to guarantee almost complete year round use of the deck, while still allowing fresh air to circulate.
The most common outdoor porch ideas - especially front porch ideas - center on furniture and decor. Homeowners are thinking twice about just plopping down an old chair or sofa with a rickety table. Their horizon of porch ideas reaches far into the realms of stores and design houses, filled with specialty fabrics, eclectic or retro furniture styles, and unique decorative accents. People are even putting up curtains (and who ever saw that coming?).
Porch ideas can come from anywhere. With the many online sites offering pictures and information about porches, you can easily get an idea for building a porch or remodeling your existing porch. Home improvement magazines are also another source you can use in your search. While there may be many different kinds of porches that catch your eye, you have to really look into each one of them to make sure that the design will complement that of the exterior of your home. You also have to ensure that you have the required amount of space to use one of these ideas.
3. Plan your space. You might feel a little silly crawling around on your porch (or the area of your yard that you expect to be covered by one soon) with a tape measure and tape, but in the long run you will be glad you took the time to make measurements. You should also measure any furniture or fixtures you are thinking about purchasing before you actually buy them. After all, there is little that is more discouraging than spending a bunch of money on a piece that ends up not fitting because you didn't think to measure ahead of time.
If your front porch or outdoor area is large enough to accommodate a small picnic table, you can toss a pretty checkered table cloth on it (or not!). Then spread out your selection of wine bottles, sparkling juices, crystal wine glasses, pretty baskets filled with fruit, cheeses and crackers. Fill vases to the brim with fresh flowers from your garden. And another nice touch is to put soft pillows on the picnic table benches.
