Bella's Room

Project #8: Part 1 of the Screened in Porch

One of the features of the house that we feel in love with was the large screened in porch off of the kitchen.  Pretty standard construction with a concrete slab-on-grade floor, two walls shared with the exterior of the house and two walls of screens.  The roof slopes away from the house and contains two large skylights for additional natural light into the space.  This is also one of Bella's favorite rooms of the house.

My parents had recently added a stained concrete patio to their house so they offered to stain the concrete floor of the screened in porch.  We cut the concrete slab to give the appearance of tile and then my parents stained the concrete.  


The floor no longer looks like a boring grey concrete slab-on-grade but instead gives the appearance of a tile floor. Thanks Mom and Dad!
