Spring Lake- Porch beach style porch

Spring Lake- Porch

The screened-in porch on this mid-century beach house was updated while remaining in sync with the rest of the neighborhood. Raising the ceiling gave the space a more open feeling and made room for ceiling fans with light boxes to illuminate balmy summer evenings. Beadboard panels on the outside walls and ceiling added a vertical rhythm while maintaining the mid-century ambiance.

The porch is about 25 x 8. The porch is all screens, the only windows are on the house and they are double hung hurricane windows.

The doors leading from the porch to the this a screen door or full view storm door with the screen in? Can you tell me the maker of the door. I am looking for the same look for my porch.

Where did the chairs come from? What are they called? - Looking for a vintage style for my outdoor patio and looking for great look, but some comfort as well. Thanks

The furniture was found on line by my client. They are real vintage piecesand have been refurbished. The comfort level is because of the thickness of the cushions that were made in my workroom.

Can you help to direct me where to find sisal area rugs that feel comfortable underfoot? - I am reinvigorating my Cape Cod cottage. Most of the rugs I find feel rough underfoot. As lots of people go barefoot in the house, comfort is important. I love how comfy you made this home!

The area rugs in the house are from a company called Royal Dutch. They have a sisal look and have held up beautifully. The rugs on the porch are also from Royal Dutch and they work well in this sheltered outdoor room.
Enjoy your project.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

AFTER: "The porch is the gateway to the house and transitions from the traditional exterior to the more sleek and urban-inspired interior," says Rich. "It's also the lifeline of a beach house. We began by vaulting the ceiling just enough to give it a lift."Retro porch furniture respects the home's age, while pale blue upholstery keeps things light, airy and fresh. Sisal rugs add beachy texture and define separate sitting and dining/game playing areas. Good lighting and ceiling fans make things comfortable and functional, while beadboard adds a cottage touch.
