Broad doorways open this expansive covered patio to an indoor game room, and the stone fireplace is double-side to service both spaces. Warm wood tones on the ceiling give a homey vibe to the outdoor space, while separate areas for lounging and dining give guests myriad options to enjoy themselves and relax.
Cape Cod-Style Porch Features Midcentury Furniture
Midcentury modern furniture pairs with Cape Cod-style architecture to create this stylish yet classic outdoor living space. A bold red-orange lantern adds a vibrant splash of color and personality to the space.
This covered porch from the HGTV Dream Home 2012 provides ample space for entertaining. Sturdy, solid aluminum furnishings are paired with cushions covered in stain-, mold- and mildew-resistant performance fabric. The chocolate upholstery color complements the bold, graphic, all-weather area rug.
Wide stone steps and a porch that runs the length of the house make this transitional home, beautifully lit for night, feel all the more welcoming. An unusual round turret and balcony sits between two more traditional gables.
A large stone fireplace anchors this outdoor sitting area that's complete with iron chairs and comfy red cushions. In the corner, a light fixture and mounted speaker help set the mood for outdoor entertaining.
In addition to providing privacy, outdoor drapery panels can give patios and porches the feel and function of an interior space when the panels are drawn closed. With panels, you can choose to entertain your guests with a breezy, sunny lunch or a secluded, intimate dinner—it's your call!
Dramatic lighting and an artful fire pit bring style and flair to the backyard pool and spa of a luxury home in Westlake, Texas. The entertainment-ready space also features a covered outdoor grill area, sitting area, fireplace and an outdoor shower.
Those playful patterns and vibrant colors continue out onto the terrace, where a bright orange area rug softens the wood flooring. The space also includes an outdoor table and matching chairs, with a pitcher and two glasses waiting at the ready for guests.
