HomeBlog3 Tips for Creating Great Screen Enclosures

If you are looking for a way to expand your living space, adding a screen enclosure to your home can be an effective way to do that. You’ll get the benefits of a patio or porch, but will be able to enjoy that space in greater comfort, without having to put up with nuisances like mosquitoes. Here at BNP Screens & Seamless Gutters, we want to help you make your home the best it can be, and in this article, we’ll be offering three tips for how to create great screen enclosures.

When designing screen enclosures

  • Place Your Door Carefully- When designing screen enclosures, it’s important to choose the placement of the doors with care. After all, you need to be able to get into your home with ease, so you’ll need to choose a spot for the screen door that won’t impede traffic to the true entrance.
  • Plan for Power Needs- Another tip for creating great screen enclosures is to carefully plan for the new structure’s electrical needs. What kind of light fixtures will you be installing, and how many? Do you plan to include a TV for outdoor viewing? How many outlets will you need, and what is the best placement for them? It’s okay if you don’t know the answers to all of these questions, as our experts are here to help you fill in the gaps, but it’s always a good idea to start thinking about them early in the design process.
  • Consider Your Roof- Lastly, if your porch doesn’t already have a roof, you should consider that part of your new screen enclosure. How do you want it to connect to the main house? What styles will work best with your existing structure? Again, our team can help you select the best options for your needs.
