Features Trending in Porch Design
This traditional architectural element has many functions, including keeping direct sunlight out of the house on hot days and providing cover while unlocking the door on rainy ones. But one of the most important things porches do is foster communal living.
In the days before climate control existed, porches were a must, especially in the South. The southern porch provides a space to catch a breeze and be sheltered from the sun during hot, sticky summers, and a porch swing is a staple in many old southern homes.
The upholstery on porch furniture today is thicker and cushier, making it just as comfortable as the living room furniture.
Grilling has become a serious hobby for many homeowners. Building a handy space around the grill has made it all the easier to prep meals on a porch. An outdoor kitchen complete with a sink means you can clean that platter that touched the raw meat without trips to and from inside the house.
