Great Outdoors Room

Pots of colorful flowers and a candle chandelier give this porch the look of a garden-themed dining room. Anchoring the arrangement is a vintage green-and-white baker's table. New white metal chairs slide underneath, looking right at home.

Make a big impact with a stunning focal point. Here, a bold lantern transforms a patio from attractive to eye-catching.

Create an elegant atmosphere outdoors by transforming your patio into a great room.

Relaxing colors, pretty fabrics, and wicker furniture work together in this welcoming porch retreat. White on the ceiling, floor, and trim looks fresh and summery.

From the flagstone on the floor to the fieldstone fireplace, this patio gets its solid feeling from its materials.

Turn a deck or patio into an outdoor entertainment center with an outdoor cooktop and simple accessories.

Make your outdoors rich and inviting by matching elegant landscaping with a dark color palette.

Give your patio the feel of an outdoor retreat by flanking it with flowering and foliage plants.

Don't be afraid to "go too far" when you adopt cottage style for your outdoor room.

A cozy spot to enjoy morning coffee, this screened-in porch is awash in bright white. Keeping the space covered is important in the wet and humid climate. The enclosure also provides an opportunity to put architecturally interesting woodwork on display.
