10 Design Ideas for Your Chicagoland Screen Porch

Screen porches are a great way to experience the outdoors while remaining protected from elements like rain and snow. Today’s custom screened porch designs can be as elaborate or simple as you choose. Match your home, opt for a finished look, or keep it rustic and outdoorsy.

Here are ten popular design elements to consider as you plan your screen porch.

1. Screened Porch with Skylights and Exposed Rafters

Exposed rafters create a rustic look and skylights let in more sun.

2. Screened Porch with Enclosed Rafters

Enclosed rafters will give you a more finished look for your screen porch.

3. Screened Porch with Cedar Siding

Use cedar siding instead of your home’s existing siding to give your screen porch a more outdoorsy and rustic look.

4. Screened Porch with Rolled Screening

Keep your view open and blend your outdoor spaces a little more smoothly with rolled screening.

5. Screened Porch with Vertical 4-Track Windows

Protect your room from the outdoor elements and extend the time you can use your screen porch with vertical 4-track windows. Slide them all the way open to let the warm breeze in, open them only partially, or keep them closed to protect from rain and snow.

6. Screened Porch with Attached Patio or Deck

Attach a patio or deck for the perfect grilling space or additional room for entertaining.

7. Elevated Screened Porch

Maximize your outdoor space by building an elevated screen porch, leaving you room for a patio or deck beneath.

8. Screened Porch with Outdoor Fireplace

Adding an outdoor fireplace to your screen porch design provides ambiance and additional warmth in the winter.

9. Screened Porch with Stone Floor

Screen in your existing patio or use paver stones for your screen porch flooring.

10. Double-Decker Screened Porch

A two-story screened porch allows you to feel surrounded by the great outdoors while providing plenty of protected space for relaxing or entertaining.
