Even with a flat roof, this spacious Kansas City screened porch is open and airy. Using lighter finish materials and accessories can achieve a bright and open space, even when it is necessary to build a flat or shed roof. With expansive floor space, these homeowners were able to create two separate living areas on their screened porch. Diagonally installed flooring works to break up linear repetition of the tongue and groove ceiling and railing pickets and also achieves a truly custom look. Ceiling fans will cool the space on warm days.
