Your porch can be a great opportunity to gain more square footage in your house and creating a unique inviting place to hang out with friends and family.
If you’re lucky enough to have a porch, chances are you don’t use it as often as you’d like. If you look at it as an extra room, however, you can turn it into a cozy, inviting space that you’ll want to spend as much time in as possible! Bring the indoors out with an all-weather rug and pillows and a table or two, and watch the homey factor rise immediately. A storage bench provides seating and stores toys and games for family time, and citronella candles help to keep bugs at bay. Finish off the space with pretty container plants and, volia! You’ve turned your ho-hum porch into a family-friendly spot to gather for meals and relaxing.
