Adding a fireplace to your screened porch is a great way to turn this part of your home from a pathway that you simply step through on your way into the main part of the house into an extra room where you, your family members, and guests will enjoy spending time.
The fireplace gives you a focal point for the space, and the screened area means that you can enjoy the fresh air in fair weather without having to contend with bugs once the sun begins to set.
A gas fireplace is a clean-burning and safe choice, but you can also choose a wood-burning model if you wish. Add some accessories to the mantle to set off the area to reflect your personal style and taste.

The entire effect works well together to create an area which is inviting without a heavy appearance.

This example of a screened porch features a painted corner fireplace which extends to the ceiling. The cream-colored finish creates a solid block of color which does not break up the space and serves to give height to to the porch. With the ceiling being a dark color, the light color choice for the fireplace brightens up the whole room.
