As the AZ heat (finally) cools this fall season, it’s time to start spending more time outside! At Fix My House we’re all about spending quality time with loved ones and what better way to do that then hanging out on your newly remodeled porch? So since we’re recommending it, we’re going to give you some ideas for a porch remodel.
Porch Remodel Time
THE DAZZLING SUNROOM
Did you know these are called ‘Arizona rooms’? It’s a screened-in area located either at the front or the back of the house, and it is so-named for the great amount of light that pours in through the oversized windows. We can create a custom sunroom that is both enjoyable and impressive by going big. A large sunroom with fair colored woods—such as cedar or a synthetic material in a lighter shade—simple white interiors and a few floral or exotic printed textiles is chic and timeless, and it also adds to the grandeur of the house. Exterior remodeling should take advantage of the state’s diverse climate. Adding a fireplace to the design makes it practical for all four seasons.
THE ENTERTAINMENT CENTER
Sunrooms are charming and casual, more rustic than elegant and perfect for dining or reading a book. An entertainment center is where the high-energy fun happens. A modern porch remodel with all the extras is the ultimate entertainment cave. Add a big screen TV with DVD player and game consoles to ensure the room gets plenty of use by everyone in the family. Comfortable furniture made from leather and wood is suitable for hosting your in-laws on Thanksgiving or your buddies on game day. All these electronics and high quality trappings require a fully enclosed porch remodel, which means a greater expense on your part. Talk to our team of expert contractors for a reasonable price quote and consider adding a skylight for a more open feel.
THE OUTDOOR KITCHEN
Cooking and dining outdoors doesn’t have to end with mid-summer barbecues. A partially enclosed porch remodel with collapsible screens allows you to grill to your heart’s content in temperate climes and during the summer, simply shut up the doors. Any exterior remodeling should account for variations in temperature. Installing a small vintage stove, farmer’s sink and counter workspace not only increases the style of the porch, it also means enjoying meals in nature’s embrace any day of the year. Opting for the warmth of brick over wood provides a sturdier, four-season appeal, but don’t feel like you have to choose red. Bricks come in an array of colors, and painting brick can also lend a completely different feel to the material! We can adapt the brick to suit the style of your house or use another stone entirely.
THE MINI PORCH
Located on the front, side or back of the house, a miniature-sized porch remodel is a fantastic option for exterior additions since not all folks have a lot of extra space or a large budget for extravagant renovations. Don’t be fooled- small doesn’t mean meager, however. Skip the brick or screened in walls that may emphasize the modest square footage. Instead, we can construct a custom rustic wood roof and decorative porticos for a cozy effect. Our team can create a tucked away, romantic atmosphere by adding climbing vines, lush foliage, and candles or soft lighting. This style of porch remodel shows how exterior remodeling can be both inexpensive and rewarding.
