 1. Create Transitional Areas

Create a seamless transition to an outdoor sitting area by paying the same attention to detail as you would when decorating indoors. Here, the variation in tile size adds interest and a subtle hint of patterning to this clean porch design, columns add architectural support and a classical vibe, and a beaded-board ceiling adds texture. Two ceiling fans circulate air and keep the space cool and refreshing.

 2. Bring in Light

Consider adding skylights to bring extra sources of lights to a dark porch. For extra circulation, consider venting skylights to increase the air flow. This porch also includes glass-front doors to increase the amount of light passing from exterior to interior spaces.
