Pretty Porch

This wide view from the two-sided fireplace between the screened porch and master bedroom shows the different zones of the well-detailed space with a dining table and two sitting areas.

Lovely Living Wall

A stunning living wall with plants takes up the entire back wall of the screened porch, and frames black, white and yellow abstract art that adds a burst of color to the dining area.

Handy Pass-Through

A handy pass-through from the kitchen allows easy transport of food and supplies from inside the home to the screened porch outside. Plant sensors help ensure the home's indoor and outdoor plants receive enough water, light and nutrients.

Dining Area

An elegant cast aluminum dining table with a powder coated black finish seats up to six and provides a stylish spot for sharing meals. The black table is paired with black and white woven Parisian bistro chairs for contrast.

Making Life Easier

The latest technology allows many of the systems in the HGTV Smart Home 2016 to be controlled remotely, even from a tablet while enjoying a relaxing dinner in the screened porch.

Views of Nature

The screened porch offers appealing views of nature that surround the back of the home. The door shown leads to a landing and a staircase to the covered porch a level below.

Cooking Outdoors

Located just outside the screened porch on the landing, a full-sized outdoor grill has infrared technology that cooks food faster, more evenly and with less flare-ups.

Great Grill

Unlike charcoal or gas grills, the lack of smoke from this electric grill makes it ideal for apartments or homes with a covered space like a porch or patio.

Connect with Nature

The living wall and various blooming plants and branches help create a strong connection between the screened porch and the natural landscape around the property.

Skylights and Fans

Three remote operated skylights allow natural light inside, with remote operated shades controlling the amount of light during peak sun hours. Two black smart fans operated by wall switch or smartphone feature an internal temperature sensor that increases or decreases the fan spin depending on the weather.

User-Friendly Screens

A simple push of a button on a remote (which can also be added to smartphone or tablet) operates three motorized screens that go up and down, to keep bugs out but also lift up and out of the way when full views are desired.

Speakers and Lights

The speakers seen above the sitting area are part of the home's whole audio system controlled by smartphone, tablet or computer. The home's smart lighting system also allows lights to be remotely controlled, to create just the right ambiance for different times of the day.

Stylish Sitting Area

A fashionable side table sits by one of the two bright yellow slipcovered outdoor chairs with black and white pillows in the sitting area between the fireplace and dining table.

Pop of Yellow

The two outdoor chairs have yellow frame slipcovers that attach underneath for a seamless, tailored look.

Tasteful Table

In front of the yellow chairs sits a cast-aluminum table with a dark bronze finish inspired by an Asian rain drum, with concentric rings of geometric patterns and botanical motifs on the side.

Fabulous Flow

When the large white stacking sliding door is fully open, the living room and screened porch become the ultimate indoor/outdoor space for entertaining and relaxing.

Welcoming Fireplace

A floor-to-ceiling cultured stone fireplace adds a warm and welcoming feel to the screened porch, with a stone mantel that includes black-and-white abstract art and modern hand sculptures.

Slipcovered Sofa

A white slipcovered outdoor sofa with narrow arms that maximize seating provides a spot to relax in front of the impressive cultured stone fireplace that anchors one side of the screened porch.

Concrete Coffee Table

A concrete cocktail table provides a spot for decorative branches or a place to rest drinks and snacks in front of the sofa.

Artful Stools

A pair of eye-catching matte white hand stools provides additional seating and act as a conversation starter for guests.

Two-Sided Fireplace

A two-sided, see-through gas fireplace located between the screened porch and master bedroom provides a warm glow and glimpse into the well-detailed space inside.

Stone Mantel

The stone mantel on the welcoming fireplace adds another layer of texture and provides a place for both framed art and sculptures.

Fetching Floor

The tiles used for the screened porch floor have a rustic feel, but were laid in a contemporary herringbone pattern for a modern twist that adds visual interest and anchors the space.

Easy Access

In addition to the large white stacked sliding door into the living room, the screened porch can also be accessed from the adjacent master bedroom.
