Sit Back and Relax With These Beautifully Idyllic Porch Photos

By Annie Thornton, Houzz

Porches big and small provide a space between home and garden to gather and relax. They are especially enjoyable during transition months, as they allow us to experience the changing seasons up close while shielding us, somewhat, from the elements. In reverse order, let’s look at 6 of the most popular porch hangout spots, from photos uploaded from July through September, as measured by the number of people who saved them to their Houzz ideabooks during those months.

6. Kitchen pass-through. Pass-through windows make it easy for food from the kitchen to make it outside to the table. This New England pass-through window looks like it could also be a place to linger, enabling someone to hang out with the chef as the meal is being prepared but the party is going on outside. Open the casement window, pull up a seat and sit at the bar with a snack or a drink.

5. Contemporary dining. Indoor-outdoor dining is the emphasis of this Australian porch, with a standout pedestal table anchoring the space. It would be an especially enjoyable place to be during a rainstorm, with the water pinging against the corrugated metal roof.
