Screened Porch - Feedback and Ideas
We decided against skylights because we thought it would be too hot in the summer. The coloring of our floor (nutmeg, Evolve) is similar to that in this picture. Also, we were thinking white breadboard ceiling.
We decided against a stone floor (worries about the ability to keep it clean). We like the table and chairs in this space though. We wouldn't be able to fit a table this big, though.
The floor and ceiling are similar to the way our space will look (as with the coloring of both). We like the more modern looking fans and the way they are spaced. That is what we had envisioned for our porch. The rattan rug looks nice as well. We also like the table and pillows in this space. I don't think white on a couch would work for us though.
I think we would prefer sconces over recess lighting if Sam can do that.
This is similar to the other table/chairs that we liked.
We like the idea of the lantern/sconces. We aren't sure that we will have a lot of flexibility with the trim so it may be easier for us to add lantern/sconces to the house side or to the 4 x 4 posts.
We like the style of this black wicker furniture. It looks stylish, but cozy, and we think it would go well with the darker floors. I would like the chairs even more if they didn't have that wooden bar at the top.
The chairs look nice (though we like the other chairs better). Maybe not this green color though.
I don't want oversized chairs like this because it is more difficult to entertain with multiple people.
Again, like the wood table and metal chair look.
Again, love the look of this furniture.
Artemis Ceiling Fan with Light by Minka Aire Fans - $549.95
I think this fan is fun.
Minka Aire Cirque George Kovacs Ceiling Fan, Silver - $429.95
This is fun too, but we like the other one better. This might be too much with two of them.
I think this is yet another view of the table/chair combo that we liked.
We liked this outdoor art that we saw at a neighbor's place and were thinking of contacting the artist. It could either be on our fence which would be viewable from the porch or could potentially go inside the porch (where our mudroom door currently is).
These rugs from Napa Style are interesting as well.
