Decorate your outside “room” just like you would any indoor living space. First, decide how you will use it. Think beyond just relaxing and grilling – do you want an outdoor dining area or would you rather have a cozy conversation nook? Do you need a gardening area? Today’s all-weather furniture, fabrics & rugs allow you to create the porch of your dreams! Whatever’s on your porch agenda, plan for privacy so you can truly relax and enjoy the space. Consider the seasons – shading is essential in the rainy spring and hot summer, while a fire pit or outdoor heaters allows you to enjoy your outdoor space long into the autumn and early winter.

Outdoor living spaces are usually visible from the inside of a cottage, therefore, it is important that the porch and/or outdoor spaces integrate well with the colors, fabrics, and style of your indoor furnishings. Porches can present a particular challenge – most people would like their outdoor ‘room’ to have both dining and casual sitting areas, but often have a limited amount of space.
