Summer Front Porch Seating Ideas
The porch has long been the perfect gathering place for summer evenings. While some folks may favor an open patio, an elevated deck, or a year-round sunroom, screened-in porches have a lot of allure—and nostalgia as well. Below we’ve some ideas. Check this out!
If you like spending a couple of lazy hours in a hammock, this might be the porch for you. Set off from the main seating area, the swinging spot can become its own private alcove, but it’s still close enough to the action to afford convenient seating for a casual get-together.
This patio dining area offers the best of indoor and outdoor comforts. Sturdy wood furniture and a cozy fireplace bring an element of indoor comfort to the room, while the natural wood ceilings seem right at home with the wooded backyard.
