6 Questions To Ask Yourself Before Beginning A Screen-Room Installation

  1. What is the purpose of this screen room 

Screen rooms are a dynamic addition to your home, that opens a myriad of outdoor opportunities for you. You can use them as a private exercise corner, a breakfast nook, an entertainment area, a personal zen room or a play area for kids. When deciding on a design, keep the primary purpose of your room in mind. Fixing a definite purpose would help you decide on which features you want to add such as furniture, lighting, electric outlets, etc. 

  1. What is the right size for you ?

Screen rooms can be customised in various shapes and sizes. Once you have a clear picture of how you’ll utilize this new addition, you should discuss with your contractor the ideal screen room size that will best suit your requirements. Along with size, you should also discuss factors such as whether you want your screen room to be connected to your home or as an independent structure? What should be the floor plan? What materials you should choose etc. 

  1. What is the level of security you require?

If you have small kids or pets at home, safety should be at the top of your priority list while installing a screen room. For maximizing security, you should choose screen rooms where doors can be latched or locked, so that the toddlers or pets can be safely confined within/outside the room. If you are concerned about your pet scratching the screen or jumping into the pool, pet & claw resistant screen rooms are the best for you! These screens are quite sturdy compared to the regular insect screens and also provide you with unobstructed airflow and view.  

  1. How to decide the Aesthetics ?

Adding a screen room to your property is like investing in an extension that will yield returns in the future! And, what good is extending your living space, if the new addition doesn’t compliment the design and structure of your property. Screen Rooms that match the aesthetics of your home have a better impact when it comes to enhancing home value and appealing to potential buyers. You should choose a design that not only matches up with the current aesthetics of your home but can also be updated easily when it is time to lease/sell your property. 

  1. Is privacy a priority ? 

When you are having a quiet time outdoors, the last thing you want is neighbours, maybe even strangers, prying on you!  Sure, you can build a barrier around your house with landscaping and other natural components, but outdoor privacy screens are the better way to save you from prying eyes and nosy neighbours. If privacy is a priority, you should opt for materials that can obstruct the visibility of outsiders when they look into your home, without interfering with your view when you look outside.
