Whether you have a massive screened in porch or a small slab, there are endless ideas for creating an inviting and stylish home extension. From adding indoor furnishings and accessories to using interior lighting and ceiling fans, there are a variety of ways to create a sensational indoor-outdoor summertime porch.

Here are a few ideas for a design makeover that will make family and friends feel super comfortable and contented when lingering on the patio.

A shabby chic sunroom offers guests the ideal spot for congregating and celebrating. Cozy clover ottomans and floral tidbits create a feeling of outdoor bliss while being nestled inside. Indoor lighting fixtures, like a crystal chandelier and standing floor lamp, add warm ambiance to this luxurious nook. Including a few pieces of refurbished furniture, like a dry brushed chest, or cane back chair, would create even more of a lounge-happy and lively entertaining space.  Image credit: Via Houzz

An enclosed cottage porch is filled with beach-like charm. Taking a cue from the indoor decorating scheme, this space is ultra-elegant with a hanging daybed, indoor-outdoor hook and loop curtain panels and a matte white ceiling fan. French doors, wicker furniture and lots of pillows make this porch perch perfect for nights of noshing on nibbles and gossiping with girlfriends. Image credit: Via Zillow

Prepare to host guests on a continual basis with this stylish patio space. With an oversized coffee table, ideal for watermelon margaritas and loads of citrus fruits, as well as a mixture of eclectic furniture, this space is destined to become a sanctuary for family and friends. Accessories like a large decorative mirror, bolster pillows and various baskets help this patio pumped up pizzazz.Image credit: Via PInterest

An All-American porch feels fun and fresh. Lively accessories in red and white create a patriotic feel that is full of modern attitude. Staging a small porch to feel homey is merely a matter of adding interior décor like a soft rug, sectional and glossy stool in bright colors. Create an even more spirited space by incorporating a dramatic bronze chandelier, hanging grommet curtains and lots of sassy striped cushions.  Image credit: Via Zillow

I’m in my mid 40’s, mom to one grown daughter, Katelyn, and a grandson, Dawson. He is the light of my life!! I am with the man of my dreams and he spoils me, as well as helping along with the furniture when I need help moving things in and out. My other hobbies include photography, scrap booking, reading and of course, decorating my home! My days find me in the office, painting furniture, decorating my home and when I’m lucky, shopping!
I hope you’ll follow along with me on this journey called home.
