Screened Porch Addition Extends Living Space in McLean, VA

Homeowner Challenge:

Having lived in their McLean home for over twenty years, these homeowners felt it was time to give their kitchen a refresh, incorporate a new screened-in porch, and update their back deck. They enjoy hosting their friends and families for social events, so their goal was to make their home more suitable for entertaining while simultaneously improving the overall design of their spaces.

The BOWA Solution:

What used to be a dated and gloomy kitchen is now a brighter and more functional space with updated appliances and a luxurious service station. Additional storage was created, and the kitchen island is now equipped to handle large gatherings. In the living room, a new quad sliding door was installed that enables a smooth transition to the screened-in porch. To make this porch usable year-round, BOWA experts installed heat lamps and fans, as well as a chic new fireplace. The exterior space now features new wood decking and railings, and around the side of the house, a pickleball court was installed giving the homeowners the opportunity to engage in one of their favorite activities together.

Project Highlights:

  • Service station with in-shelf lighting
  • Quad sliding door
  • Screened-in porch for year-round entertainment
  • New wood decking & railings
