At The Porch Company, our goal is to always provide a custom-designed outdoor living space, which speaks to each client’s lifestyle. This Nashville screened porch is a little bit country and a little bit rock ‘n roll, and a perfect combination of style and function. What you would not know, is that this is actually a deck-to-screened porch conversion. We do not often have the opportunity to build atop of an existing deck, but this time, it was just the thing! The tall gable roof design you see here makes way for the magic you will see inside.
Let’s start right outside the classic country screened door. This beautiful PorchCo screen door calls to mind days of old – reminiscent of our grandparents’ screened door. This is a solid Sapele wood door with bottom picket infill, painted a beautifully-understated light gray. Hardly a more inviting porch entrance can be had. Speaking of that invitation, let’s peek inside.
Can’t you just imagine a southern Sunday brunch with loved ones in this charming space? Just look at this gorgeous light! The space takes on a truly ethereal aesthetic, with large screened openings and the custom half-round arched gable trim. Here again, you will notice the subtle gray framing. The lap ceiling is painted white, offering the slightest contrast porch trim. Not that additional light is required in the daytime, but this porch also offers sconce lighting, which is mounted on the framing throughout. The classic picket rail keeps tradition with the country chic elements of the space.
There is no such thing as a design afterthought with a Porch Company porch. The half-round gable trim we spoke about above is one example. That porch wall was created to perfectly mimic the entrance into the home, which has a fixed half-round window over the French doors. Along with the windows and transoms on either side, the interior of the home will not be devoid of natural light with the new porch roof added on.
And those natural wood beams are the perfect dramatic element inside the space. Not only did we include electrical wiring inside the beams for ceiling fans, but we added up-lighting, which will set the stage for even more drama at night!
These beams were created with 2”x8” yellow pine, wrapped in beautiful spruce. They add tonal warmth and movement with the woodgrain pattern. And if you ask us, a pop of burnt orange is a little bit rock ‘n roll too! With the muted hues used in constructing this porch, it will lend itself beautifully to seasonal décor elements.
