This elegant custom screened porch in Lenexa, KS boasts not only diagonally installed IPE Brazilian hardwood flooring, but also a complete fireplace facade. The stainless steel gas fireplace insert will keep the space cozy on cool days. Notice how well the painted beadboard ceiling and porch framing work in perfect contrast to the richness of the IPE. Recessed lighting highlights the custom fireplace facade, where the homeowners might place artwork for a focal point or a TV for entertainment. Taking the fireplace facade all the way to the ceiling adds height to the space. Low-profile black aluminum railings offer great views beyond the screened porch. IPE Brazilian hardwood is a high-end material that offers a fantastic designer aesthetic.
