Screened porches can reduce the amount of light that enters the porch's interior, some screened porches are built so that the screens can be removed at times when insects and sunlight are less of a problem to the resident. Some homeowners fill their porches with furniture and amenities typically found indoors, such as tables, chairs, and couches, ceiling fans, imitation hardwood floors, electrical outlets, painted elements, and even built-in furniture and plumbing.
One common benefit of a screen room or sunroom is the sense of intimacy and quiet privacy that can be experienced when spending your leisure hours on a screened porch. In the field of landscape architecture, a screened porch may even be used to divide surrounding gardens or lawns into smaller zones; this is a common design aspect at multiple hospital and care facilities. Arizona Room
An Arizona Room is a semi-outdoor recreational room found frequently in homes in Arizona. The room is often a patio that has been covered and screened-in, creating an outdoor feeling while preventing excessive heat and keeping insects and animals out. The room generally borders the back yard of the house and is often accessed directly from the living room, kitchen or other common room of the home.
According to a website run by Phoenix newspaper The Arizona Republic, residents sleep in their Arizona room during the summer months, before the advent of air conditioning, because the flow of cool night air made them more comfortable than in an enclosed bedroom.
In contemporary England and North America, gazebos are typically built of wood and covered with standard roofing materials, such as shingles. Gazebos can be tent-style structures of poles covered by tensioned fabric. Gazebos may have screens to aid in the exclusion of flying insects.Sleeping porch
Sleeping porches first gained popularity almost 100 years ago. In those days there was not the technology or energy harnessed to be comfortable in the hot weather. People would sleep on a screened porches to get the coolness of the night air during summer without being bothered by bugs. At that time, there were many people who believed that fresh air helped sufferers of tuberculosis, a respiratory-system illness which was the leading cause of death at that time in the United States. Health experts then also touted the benefits of fresh air for avoiding other illnesses.
A sunroom, aka solarium or garden room, is a structure, either attached or integrated into a building. These are used in homes and businesses. A sunroom allows you to spend time in natural light while enjoying quiet time at home, working at the office, or having recreation time at a local restaurant. One big benefit is that this structure allows for maximum enjoyment of surrounding landscape while being sheltered from adverse weather. Sunrooms are used in passive solar building design as a technique for heating and lighting structures.
A sunroom may be a room in a building specifically tailored to that function, but the main feature is contractions done with many windows and appropriate climate control. In most cases the sunroom is connected to an existing structure or new construction. Attached sunrooms are typically constructed of transparent tempered glazing atop a brick or wood "knee wall", or framed entirely of wood, aluminum, or PVC and glazed on all sides. For privacy, frosted glass or breeze block is used.
The two main ideas of sunrooms are abut more natural light. First, sunrooms are designed to exploit a scenic view and enjoy sunlight = the wonder of natural light. Second, they are composed entirely of framed glass and usually called solariums, are typically found in high latitude due to the low sun angle or colder climates that are typically in higher altitude locations.
