Screened Porch for an Easy, Breezy Living Space
Is there anything more wonderful in a home than a screened porch? You can be outside without fighting off bugs. Breezes blow and birds are chirping, all while you sip some iced tea or lemonade. Take a moment to enjoy today’s collection of pretty porches.
Porches can provide a lot of extra living space, as seen in this mostly white porch with a beautiful fireplace. There’s ample room for both lounging and dining. A pair of ceiling fans keep the breezes blowing even when the air is still outside.

This dining space is so much fun! The woven blue and white chairs and blue pendant lights add a fun touch. The screens keep bugs away while dining al fresco.

This has to be a southern porch with its haint blue ceiling. I love its large size and all the windows where you can view the porch and the views beyond from inside the house.

The mix of natural wood and white makes this porch cozy and charming all at once. Arched, screened windows add to the quaintness, along with classic white wicker furniture.

Some screened porches have enough sophistication to feel like a year-round living room. Greens and blues are a perfect color combination for spring and summer.
A daybed provides a place for reading or napping on a spring or summer day.
A sophisticated screened-in porch gets a treatment of wood and stone with a beautiful fireplace. If you don’t live too far north, this room could be used year-round.

And finally, the ultimate sleeping porch with a custom bed suspended by chains. I would sleep here every chance I got! How about you?

Sometimes I think about screening in my front porch so I have at least one place to sit outside without bugs. I just can’t get myself to pull the trigger on it – yet.

Beautiful porches. Would love to try that sleeping porch lol. I have an open front porch but would love a screened one.
They are really nice I have one and I do enjoy it. In the Spring when it comes time to clean it up is what I don’t like, they do get dirty.
