Enjoying your time on the porch is an excellent idea to do when the weather is nice. However, there is a time when the bugs and mosquitoes are many that it becomes uncomfortable and annoying to spend time there. It is the major reason why the porch is screened.
Is that the only reason why we must add the screens? Of course, it is not.
Installing screens in the porch area can create a chance for you to build an alternative living space. It can be even better if you also add a fireplace as one of the main features there.
A fireplace can enhance the cozy ambiance on the porch. Other than that, it can heat the area, so it becomes a more comfortable place to enjoy time with those who are close to you.
Do you know what is best? The heat produced by the fireplace makes it possible for you to spend time in the porch area, including on windy or even chill nights. Fascinating, isn’t it?

1. Simple, Rustic Screened Porch with Stone Fireplace
Here is the first idea that we want you to take a look at. You can see a quite spacious, simple rustic screened porch that comes with a stone fireplace as one of the main elements in the picture.
From this picture, you can see the most basic idea in decorating a screened fireplace. It is none other but placing seats to make sure that you can enjoy your time comfortably there. The most common position of the seats is, of course, facing the fireplace.
In this design, you can see that there is also a flat-screen attached to the overmantel. The idea is very simple, but it can give you more options for activities you can do in the porch area.
The thing that we also love is the built-in lighting in the ceiling. It helps build a cozy ambiance with the light’s tone.
2. L-Shaped Sofa to Accommodate More People and Get Extra Coziness
While it is very clear that a fireplace can build up a cozy ambiance on a screened porch, another thing can make the place even more comfortable. It is none other but the choice of seating furniture to place in there.
You can also consider some other detail when you think about the right furniture piece to place there. If you want to accommodate more people at once, for example, an L-shaped sofa can be a good choice to choose from.
Please take a look at the picture of a traditional screened porch above. The existence of the stone fireplace in a corner is an attention-stealer.
We love how the design comes with a raised hearth. You can use something like this to place decorations on some special days and make the screened porch look even more decorative.
We also like the choice of an L-shaped sofa with something that looks like leather cushions. The size of this furniture piece matches the large space of the porch.
Other than that, it is clear that this sofa can accommodate more people at once. It is perfect for when you host a party at home or have many guests come over at once.
3. Fully-Decorated Screened Porch with Fireplace for a Living Room-Like Atmosphere
When you have a screened porch, it means that you can adorn it fully by placing complete furniture set in there. You can even include some decorations to make it look more attractive.
As an example, please look at the picture of a small rustic screened porch above. The first thing that catches our attention from the design is the stone fireplace and the furniture set in front of it.
As you can see, there is a three-seater sofa, a chair, a coffee table, and some side tables. There is even an arched floor lamp placed there.
We love how the designer also placed a beige area rug under the furniture. It can enhance the coziness of the place.
Some pillows are also placed on the seats. These items will work as decorations and other things to create a cozier feel when enjoying quality time and the warmth from the fireplace on the screened porch.
4. Timeless Look with Screened Porch Fireplace with Wainscoting
When designing a fireplace for your screen porch, it will also be great if you can make it have a timeless look. A consideration like this will be beneficial for a long-term investment.
You can choose to create a timeless look in your screened porch fireplace by including wainscoting in the design. The picture above shows an example that you must see.
The large size of this fireplace shows that the porch area itself is quite spacious. At a glance, we can see that this special feature has a coordinating look with the home design. As you can see, they share the same red brick material and white color from Sherwin William Extra White SW 7006.
The thing that catches our attention the most is the white wainscoting that dominates the fireplace design. You can consider something like this when you want to create a timeless look on your porch.
If you want to make the design attractive and not interfere with the house look, ensure that the wainscoting color is coordinated with the house exterior color scheme. In the picture, for example, the fireplace has both red brick and white paint colors.
5. Large Fireplace for a Large Screened Porch
Choosing the right fireplace dimensions can be important to keep the visual of your screened porch balanced. It is something that you can relate to the size of the porch itself.
If it is spacious, a big fireplace can be an excellent choice for it. Besides, you can create a better focal item if this element’s size is big enough for people to notice first whenever they enter the porch area.
A good example that we want to share with you here is available in the picture above. This traditional, screened porch is ample.
The space is large enough for a set of seats and a coffee table placed right in front of the fireplace. There are even a walkway and another lounge area on the other side of the place.
As for the stone fireplace itself, we all can see that the dimensions are large enough. It even has a grilling station extension on one side. Something like this is a clear attention-catcher.
Another thing that we love from this screened porch design is how luxurious it looks. This impression Is something that you can see from the choice of furniture and decorations placed in there.
6. All-Season Screened Porch with Skylights and Fireplace
If you have a screened porch, it would be best to design it to be usable in all seasons every year around. It is the reason why we suggest you take a look at this picture.
It has a fireplace as the main feature that we talk about in this post. However, if you look at the ceiling, you will also find skylights as another significant feature.
As we already explained previously, the fireplace is very useful to use during the windy or cold seasons like fall and winter. On the other hand, the skylights enable you to spend time on the porch area when the weather is nice, like in spring and summer.
The design of this screened porch is quite simple. It has a combination of white and natural stone tones.
We particularly love the striped L-shaped sofa. Its pattern enhances the style value on the porch.
7. Modern-Decorated Fireplace for Screened Porch
Adding some decorations, particularly to the fireplace on your screened porch, is possible for you to do. It is something you can do to boost the style value of the element and the place.
An example of this exists in the rustic-modern screened porch design shown in the picture. This time, let us focus more on how the fireplace is decorated.
If seen from the fireplace itself, it looks like a combination of rustic and modern styles. The proof is the white-painted wood material for the surround and overmantel paired with a modern fireplace insert.
As for the decorations, the most prominent one is the round mirror with a black frame. There are also two modern black sconces installed on the overmantel. Both the lights and the mirror have a black tone that matches the styling of the fireplace insert.
Other than those, there are also two small sculptures placed on the wooden mantle. They perfect the modern decorating style of the screened porch fireplace.
Are you a fan of beach style? If yes, you can also bring the theme to your screened porch by choosing the right colors to apply there.
We found the perfect example for you to take a look at. It is the picture above.
The color theme of this semi-outdoor space is white and navy. The combination of the two is visible, mostly in the seating area.
The wooden coffee table is also amazing. It somehow reminds us of driftwoods we usually find at the beach.
From all the fascinating detailing in this screened porch design, the brick fireplace is the one that arrested our attention quite the most. It obtained the color from a whitewashing process, and the result is excellently matching with the beach style applied to the place.
9. Fireplace in a Small Screened Porch? Why Not?
If you have a rather small screened porch, you may think twice about adding a fireplace in there. What makes you concerned more is the size of the element that may take up too much space.
The fact you must know is that it does not matter whether your porch is small or spacious. You can always include a fireplace as a feature as long as you know the right option to pick.
The Malm Zircon 34″ matte black fireplace you can see in the picture is a really good example in this case. Its design does not need much space.
At a glance, it looks like it is floating. However, it is not. It has a leg on the lower part.
10. Save Space and Get More Open Feeling in the Screened Porch with Hanging Fireplace
To save space while at the same time also getting a more open feel in the screened porch area, you can choose a hanging fireplace instead. Some people call it floating too.
A fireplace like this often comes in a minimalist design. That is why it often becomes a perfect match for a modern-style screened porch.
You can take a look at the picture above to see an example. This modern screened porch has a black hanging fireplace, and it is very clear that this feature does not take much space there.
The thing that we love about this fireplace is the style. It looks very stylish in its simplicity. That is why it matches the modern minimalist design of the porch.
We do not know the exact fireplace used in the picture. Although so, it looks highly similar to the ones produced by FIREORB.
11. Wood Stove as Alternative to Fireplace for Your Screened Porch Area
Still, about space-saving value, there is another option that we can suggest you consider when designing a screened porch with a fireplace feature. The choice we meant is a wood stove.
Unlike a fireplace, which is more suitable to call a structure, a wood stove is a device. Despite the difference, it works the same with the counterpart in that it provides warmth and ambiance.
An example of a wood stove is available in the picture. The one that you see here is The Shaker Stove by Wittus.
The minimized design of this device is just perfect for a small place. As you can see, it also matches the minimalist atmosphere built up by the options of furniture placed in there.
12. Decor Inspiration for an Engaging Conversation in a Screened Porch
Designing a screened porch interior depends on how you want to function the space. An example is when you want it to be where you can have an engaging conversation with those close to your heart.
If this kind of screened porch design is the one you want, adding a fireplace will help set a cozy mood for an even more intimate conversation. The choice is, of course, suited to the style you choose for the style. For example, the bulky stone fireplace above excellently matches the rustic decor.
Besides the fireplace, you can also consider the type of furniture to place for an even better quality chat. The wicker furniture set chosen for the rustic porch above looks so comfortable to sit on because of the warm-color stripe cushions.
It would help if you got inspired by this porch design because it does not come with electronics like a television. This idea makes it easier for everyone to get engaged in the conversation. Something like this is perfect for spending quality time with the family and close friends, right?
13. Fireplace Design for Narrow Screened Porch
Some porches are just narrow. However, it does not mean that you cannot build a fireplace to increase the coziness there.
The picture above gives you a good example of how you can arrange everything in the narrow screened porch area to include a fireplace there. As shown in the pic, the fireplace is placed right in front of the seats, while the space between them is still functional as a hallway.
If you want to, you can enhance the coziness even better by choosing quality, comfortable seat as long as it is suitable for the outdoor environment. An example is a two or three-seater with cushions and pillows.
14. Simple Trick to Avoid a Stone Fireplace Taking Too Much Space in a Screened Patio
A stone fireplace structure often takes the floor and vertical space of the place where it is located. Some people find it problematic because it makes the screened porch area smaller. Some others just do not like the protruded look.
If you are one of them, the screened porch design available in the picture contains an example you must look at. As you can see, the stone fireplace design is non-protruded.
If that is so, does it mean that the fireplace does not have full features? Of course, it has all of them to work properly.
FYI, this fireplace design by Dutch Quality Stone is protruded backward. This idea is brilliant for maximizing the interior space of the porch.
15. Gorgeous White-Themed Screened Porch with Yellow Stone Fireplace
This screened porch design is just gorgeous. We love how the white color still dominates the place, although some other tones also exist in the design.
We also like the yellow stone fireplace. It is not merely about how it looks fine together with the white theme. It is also about how it still looks amazing in its large size being located in a rather small place.
Looking at how sunny the location of this screened porch, we can say that it can be an excellent alternative breakfast spot in the house. It can be a place to enjoy warm drinks or playing board games with family members in the afternoon.
16. Screened Porch with Fireplace: A Perfect Place for Stargazing Comfortably
Do you like stargazing? If the answer is yes, the porch can be the right place to enjoy the activities.
It will be excellent if the place is also screened so that you do not have to worry about bugs and mosquitoes when you are stargazing. It would be even more perfect if there is a fireplace to chase away the cold night weather.
The picture above contains a design example you must take a look at. It is a long porch with screens and a fireplace.
Other than those elements, you can see a set of wicker furniture and a telescope in the place. All these are perfect for supporting the outdoor activity and making sure that you get the comfort you need.
17. A Cozy Reading Spot in Your Screened Porch
For you who love to read and at the same time always like to enjoy the breeze of outside air, a screened porch that also comes with a fireplace feature can be a perfect place for reading too. Of course, in this case, you must provide some items to make the design excellent.
For example, you can add a comfortable chair, as done in the picture above. Adding a side table can also be a good thing to do since you can use it to place some books and drinks.
If your favorite reading time is in the time when the natural sunlight still brightens up the screened porch interior, you should not bother adding a reading lamp in there. On the contrary, if you love to read at night, considering extra lighting will be the best decision.
18. Stylish Industrial Screened Porch with Wood Domination
The industrial style is almost always related to the use of concrete and exposed pipes. Although so, those are not the only materials you can use for creating the interior styling.
As an example, you can take a look at the amazingly stylish screened porch design. It brings up the industrial style by using wood as the most dominant material. Other than that, you can also see some metal details in there.
The thing that catches most attention from this design is none other but the fireplace. It has a very catching wooden mantle as well as a stunning exposed metal flue.
19. Curtain for Extra Privacy in Your Screened Porch
Other than including a fireplace, adding curtains in your screened porch interior design can also be a good thing to do. These are the accessories that can help increase the privacy value in the place.
Other than that, curtains for a screened porch can also reduce the coldness when it is too breezy. Besides, depending on the type you choose, these items can also make the place look more stylish.
One thing you must remember is that not all curtains are suitable to use on a screened porch. The safer choice is something designed for outdoor use.
20. Fireplace with Corrugated Metal Overmantel in a Beach-Style Screened Porch
Using an uncommon material to make the visual of the fireplace of your screened porch even more fascinating is a thing you can do, of course. Right now, there are quite a lot of options available. An example that we want to show you is corrugated metal, as seen in the picture.
Although this fireplace material is quite different from the others in the porch area, it still looks like it belongs there. Besides, the metal color also matches the other shades of grey available there. Overall, the design looks gorgeous and minimalist.
Those are the 20 beautiful screened porch with fireplace designs that we can share with you. Of course, we do hope that all of the pictures and ideas will get you inspired.
One thing you must not forget is the type of fireplace that you will include in the screened porch area. Please be sure that it is something designed for outdoor use for more effective usage and durability and effectiveness.
A quite similar suggestion is also applied to the furniture and decorations options. Choosing outdoor items is the best thing to do in this case.
