There are many great things about owning a home, and one of the best is that you have the ability to modify your house so that it is exactly the way you want it. And with so many options, there is really an endless amount of things you can do. One addition that is popular with homeowners now is a 3 season porch. This is a fully-enclosed room that does not have any heating elements, which is why they are mostly used in spring, summer, and fall. However, because our NC winter weather can often be mild, for many people a 3 season porch becomes a 4 season porch.
The benefits of a 3 season porch
A 3 season porch can do wonders for a home. When one is added to your home, you will be able to:
Enjoy the outdoors while inside
With large, screened windows, a 3 season porch lets you experience nature while still sitting inside. You will be able to feel the nice breeze and warmth of the sun, but you will not have to worry about coating yourself in sunscreen or bug spray to avoid those nasty, biting insects.
Have a great spot for the family and/or guests
With so much light and a panoramic view, a 3 season porch makes an excellent family room, especially if you stock it with fun stuff like a ping-pong table or other family games. A 3 season porch is also the perfect room for parties and get-togethers.
Increase your investment
Extra rooms almost always increase a home’s value. One of the biggest advantages of a 3 season porch is that it could be used as-is or perhaps converted into something else later on. Because the room can be hooked up to the HVAC system, future potential buyers of your home could see it as a possible bedroom or maybe a home office. When it comes time to sell, the extra room gives your home a bonus that other homes in the area may not have.
Enhance curb appeal
Even if you do not have any plans to sell your home, you should always look for ways to improve its appearance. A 3 season porch immediately gives a house a unique element. Because there are many different style and design options, your 3 season porch can look completely different than any others in your neighborhood.
