Tips For Porch Additions Projects

Take Your Time To Consolidate Your Ideas Into A List

Before anything else, you should consider how you want to use the patio. Note down all the features you need for an optimum user experience. Try to answer the following questions to get the best out of your project: 

  • Will you screen or enclose the porch?
  • What’s the purpose of your porch? 
  • Would you want to use it for relaxing, entertainment, dining, or shelter from the rain? 
  • Would you need a storage area or shelving?
  • Will heating be necessary?
  • Would you use electronics such as TVs or audio systems on your porch?
  • How much seating space would you need to accommodate your family and guests? Consider outdoor furniture and built-in seating to make your porch additions space more functional. 
  • What’s your choice of furnishing for the porch? Would you be adding a table for playing cards or dining?
  • Will you include a ceiling fan?

Set priority by distinguishing between the ‘nice-to-have’ and ‘must-have’ items and features after compiling your porch features. The must-have is the necessities of your project needs that would render your project complete without them.  

Contrarily, nice-to-have items are also called wants. These are the items that are nice to have or luxury items. These add meaning to your porch additions. 

Discuss your project with an outdoor home remodeling contractor. They will help you to set realistic expectations based on your budget. 

Determine The Location Of Your Porch And Your Preferred Layout 

Typically, you can be at the rear side of your house (back porch), front of your house (front porch), or wrap around your home. Consider sun exposure, privacy, and the view when choosing a suitable site for your porch.
