Looking For Unique Custom Screened Porch Designs? Whatever Your Personal Style, The Porch Company Will Make Your New Porch Uniquely Yours!

With the holidays now under our belt – in more ways than one (wink, wink) – when folks in town ask me what’s new, I respond most recently with, “Oh, that would be our fabulous new porch in Green Hills, TN.

An absolute joy to work with, our clients have very refined taste, with a keen eye for detail and a strong love of those once-in-lifetime antique finds. This porch encompasses many of our Porch Company standards used on many of our custom designs, such as our Classic Southern Cross railing and Hermitage cap and sleeve, intermingled with custom vintage touches unique to the homeowner.

A Mix Of Unique & Antique Makes This Porch Sing!


As you enter the porch interior, right out of the gate you will notice these vintage bifold doors used to access the porch from within the home, and vice versa. They are the perfect example of their unique style and serve as the exclusive entry into the porch. Stunning in stature, color, and texture, we recognize the beauty of finding an antique treasure like these doors and repurposing them into something new and treasured.


These reclaimed doors were beautifully added to this new build by casing out the opening to the porch and resizing it to work. Interesting to note is that this new porch does not have an entryway from the backyard. The only way folks can access it is through the home’s interior. This actually achieves two functional aspects. It protects the family dog from unwanted journeys outdoors and provides an extra layer of home security.

A Timeless Porch To Cherish


As for honoring the cherished look of timeless antiques, you can also see the gorgeous Edison-style light bulb fixtures on both the left and right side posts of the porch interior. Their warm ocher glow illuminates the new porch outdoor living area beautifully as the sun sets for the day.

Another example of honoring our client’s unique style preferences is the shutters used here. The interior shutters you see here are antique shutters, also provided by our client. They work wonderfully in unison with the Bahama-style shutters installed by The Porch Company.

With perfection in the design and execution from top to bottom, we installed our signature tongue and groove cypress flooring.


The porch ceiling is painted blue, as folklore surrounding haint blue porch ceilings, harkens back to the low country and its use was touted to ward off “evil spirits”. Some even claim it helps keep out insects too — as to confuse them with the blue sky. This homage to tradition is a lovely accent to the porch’s warmth and welcoming atmosphere.


Adjacent to the ceiling, we installed a large contemporary fan for additional breezy comfort when needed, along with a downlight in its center.

To warm up the space as evenings set in, we also installed Solaira infrared heaters in the space, as well. This is something we add to many of our porch designs at The Porch Company. We typically install them, as our porch interiors often need a dependable and unobtrusive heat source for added comfort. We fully integrate them into suspended ceilings or wall mount them, whichever best suits the porch interior and seating arrangements.


For entertaining family members and guests, the roomy interior accommodates groups of seating for casual conversation and drinks, as well as a vintage dining table with seating for six people. As you can see from the potted poinsettias on the dining table, it was a great place to share holiday cheer.


This new year couldn’t be a more perfect time to have your new screened porch or open porch consultation. You can call us at 615-662-2886 we look forward to hearing from you!
