  1. Adding a Breezeway to Your Home

  2. What is a breezeway? A breezeway can be a great addition to your home, providing extra living space and protection from the elements between areas of your home such as the house and garage. It can be a patio area which provides a comfortable and functional area

  3. The Designs of your Breezeway

  4. Designs vary to include both open and enclosed breezeways, depending on the design of your home and your personal needs.

  5. Open or Enclosed?

  6. Open Design Breezeway In areas of the country where the climate is warm most of the year, an open design would work well and could save money.

  7. Enclosed Design Breezeway This design will allow you to utilize the area as patio space during cooler spring and fall weather. It can also provide much-needed protection from the harsh winter climate.

  8. Function

  9. If you would like to use the breezeway as a "mud room" to store boots, shoes, jackets, and other outdoor supplies, an ENCLOSED DESIGN BREEZEWAY would work best. An ENCLOSED DESIGN BREEZEWAY would also work best as a play area for kids - talking about better security and safety

  10. Achitectural Considerations

  11. Consider hiring a builder or Contractor • Building Codes and Regulations (depends on where you live) • Electricity, lighting and outlets. • For additional features like water fountains, you might also consider hiring a PLUMBER. Deciding these needs in the early planning stages of the project will make everything easier.

  12. REMEMBER! You should also be sure to design the breezeway in a style that is complementary to the overall appearance of the house.

  13. Decorating a Breezeway

  14. Different ways of decorating a breezeway, depending on your own particular needs. • Adding some patio furniture • Adding an electric heater • A small water fountain • A storage bench in the mud room • A peg rack to hold jackets, hats, umbrellas and other outdoor accessories • Blinds on the windows to reduce extreme sunlight.

  15. These are just basics and some of the things to consider when adding a breezeway to your home. It all depends on how creative you are.
