What is beadboard, and what does it add to your outdoor living space?

What is beadboard | Beadboard Ceilings

Beadboard is a ceiling treatment that gives a routed design to previously flat panels or flat wood coverings. 

Beadboard is sometimes referred to as a "tongue and groove" treatment.

Beadboard can be made of wooden planks, beadboard panels (as in this example), or even vinyl

Beadboard ceiling treatments give a your new home a more classic (and expensive) look and feel, without paying too much.  

 

What is stamped concrete, and could it be a good choice for your new home porch or patio?

Stamped Concrete | What is stamped concrete?

Stamped concrete is created by pouring slab concrete into a walkway, patio, or porch, and imprinting a pattern, texture, and/or color.

The stamp duplicates different surfaces, such as cobblestones, brick, wood, seashells, and others.  

This technique offers homebuyers a durable, realistic, and easy to clean alternative to pavers or natural stone.  

 

 

 

What other designer selections were included in this custom screen porch?
