Detached screen rooms let you enjoy the outdoors more

Since patios and backyard spaces can go unused for large portions of the year, and homeowners want more functional living space, screen rooms have been gaining in popularity. We can design and build a detached screen room that can be used in many different ways. 

A detached screen room lets you enjoy your outdoor living space without having to worry about bugs and weather. And if they’re designed right, you can even use them when the temperatures drop.

If you aren’t sold yet, let’s look at some of the benefits of adding a screen room to your home and its possible uses.

Outdoor Dining Room

If you love the idea of dining al fresco but do not want to get eaten alive by mosquitos or other bugs, a detached screen room is a great option. Many of the screen rooms we build are close enough to the kitchen or outdoor grilling space so it will be easy to transport food and is a perfect spot to enjoy a meal.

Outdoor Lounging Area

You could install a television and some big, comfy couches in your screen room to create a secondary living area that feels more outdoorsy while still being relaxing. You could also install a bar area or entertainment space in this room if you like to get a little rowdy.

If you don’t get to enjoy your hot tub as much as you want because of bugs or bad weather, a screen room can easily accommodate one. The screen room will also provide privacy.

Helpful Tips

If you want a detached screen room, make sure to let us know how you plan to use it so we can design it to accommodate your furniture. This is especially important in cases where you will be using the space as a dining room since dining room furniture is rather large. The last thing you want is to find out your furniture has no way of fitting into the screen room.

You may also want glass windows with screen inserts. This, along with a portable propane heater, will let you enjoy your screen room well into the winter.

For the summer months, a ceiling fan is a must, to keep the air circulating so you can enjoy the screen room, even when the heat and humidity are through the roof.

Lastly, a skylight is a good idea to brighten up the space and make it feel more outdoorsy and less confining.
