Do you have so many underused or unused spaces at home? Well, why not extend your living space and turn those portions of your house into an enclosed patio.

Typically, when patios are mentioned, the first thing that would come into your minds is lunch outs, warming out at fireplaces at night and sun tanning. But enclosed patio is a different thing. It still has the making of any typical patio: great view of the outdoors, seating areas, relaxing beds, cooking areas but it just has a roof and some walls. This will allow you to enjoy the benefits of any ordinary patio, whether rain or shine.

An enclosed patio may have other nicknames. They can be called sunrooms, screened porches or as simple as a canopy standing by your pool side. So as you can see, you will still be in touch with nature but the room may just have features that any indoor space could have. Generally, it would look like an extension. However, it has an illusion of space as you allow more of the natural light to brighten the place at night. It would also look like a junction of your garden to the main house.

When you make an enclosed patio, there are several things that you have to ask yourself. Here are some of the questions:

  1. What materials do I want to use? When you make an extension of the house, you have to determine the materials. This is because whatever you use to make it would define its price and the extensiveness of labor. You can make an enclosed patio out of screens, wood and roofing materials. You can also make one out of concrete and other stone materials. Some even would opt to use heavy fabrics for roofing that would resemble a mesh tent or something.

  2. Do I need to attach it to the main home's HVAC system? Typically a patio is open. Hence, there is no need of thinking about attaching the room to the HVAC system. But since this is an enclosed patio, this should become a consideration. You have to ask yourself too if you want to enjoy the space all year round, despite the major changes in weather. If you do, you may have to attach the patio to the house's HVAC system (but not unless if it is just made of screens or if it is made out of a wall-less canopy.

  3. Do you want it to be temporary or permanent? The more permanent the structure is, the better it could add value for your homes. However, if it is removable and temporary, you can eventually take out the patio anytime you want and exchange it for a better home improvement. But if you want an enclosed patio without attaching it to your house, it is best you make use of canopies. You have the option to put them anywhere and if you want to keep out those pestering insects away from you, you can just make use of zippered nets to enclose the space.

Consider all these things and answer them truthfully. Once you have, you will already be on your way to make the best enclosed patio that meets your preference.
