Visual appeal matters. Whether it’s a building, a piece of clothing or the latest gadget, functionality is essential, but it’s not enough. What does that mean for patio screen enclosures? Patio screen enclosures don’t have to be drab or boring. It is possible to spice them up with an architectural elegance that will make you the envy of the neighborhood. Check out these hot, new trends to find out.
Naturally Easy to Maintain
People love the natural beauty of wood, but they are less enamored with the amount of regular maintenance required to keep it looking its best. Wouldn’t it be nice to get the appearance of wood without the work? It’s possible, and it’s an increasingly popular choice. At Dulando Screen & Awning, we enjoy using Perma-Wood. Crafted from aluminum and offering the appearance and texture of wood, it’s a perfect mix of function and form. Homeowners get the convenience of durable, low-maintenance aluminum and the lovely look of wood. Patio screen enclosures have never been so easy to maintain.
Looking Up With Rafters
In their most basic incarnations, rafters help support the roof, but these architectural elements can do much more. Rafters can also be used to add visual interest to the ceiling and roofline of your screen porch enclosure. There has been a considerable increase in adding Perma-Wood rafters. These cleverly designed patio cover rafters are as easy to maintain as they are beautiful, so you can relax and relish the time you spend in your new patio screen enclosure without wasting any time worrying about maintenance chores.
Standing Proud With Columns
Screen patio columns are definitely trending. They have a classic look and bring timeless elegance and proud solidity to any structure. Are you interested in incorporating columns in your patio cover? With Dulando, you can choose either square or round columns thicker than the standard 3×3 column. Patio columns are a great addition to customize the appearance of your enclosure and create a more elegant look.
Combining Screen Enclosures, Pergolas and Patios
How can you combine patio screen enclosures with pergolas and patios? For starters, you can combine them by enclosing your under roof patio enclosure and then adding a paver brick patio topped with a beautiful pergola. We can incorporate existing structures into your new enclosure with our custom designs. It’s a great way to gain more shelter and privacy. If you have space, you can also take a different approach and use a combination of these popular outdoor features to create a series of outdoor rooms. For example, placing a screen room beside your home is a fantastic way to extend your living space. Wouldn’t it be amazing to step out of your screen room patio outfitted with a grill or an entire outdoor kitchen? Now imagine a pergola placed between the patio and your pool with loungers beneath it. The possibilities are endless.
