House hunting is one of my favorite activities. I love driving around town, and getting ideas for my future home from the homes around me. My favorite thing about houses is, by far, porches and patios. These areas are such dreamy spaces that combine all the good things about both the indoors and the outdoors. Adding these touches to your porch will help create your new favorite spot in the house!
If you can do it, sliding doors to your porch make entertaining more convenient.
