Summer is here! Beautiful weather and hand crafted iced cocktails are in your horizon. We thought of a few ideas to help spruce up your seating arrangement with summer style, wherever your 3-season porch may be, at home or at the cabin.
Greeting, meeting and eating
Utilize long tables as a gathering space to bring your family and guests to a centered space. The light through your porch windows makes your enclosed outdoor area an ideal place to enjoy coffee and catching up with friends and family. See some beautiful dining tables at Pottery Barn!
Use chairs with armrests for the ends of the table or change out a couple chairs for a bench for an updated look. Metal chairs also offer a clean, sleek look, while being low maintenance, especially for year round storage at the lake.
Find the perfect patio furniture set to create a cohesive look that is multifunctional for all seasons. Mid-July is also the perfect time to update your seating areas, as your favorite stores will have the best deals mid-season. World Market is one store that has comfortable, unique and quality patio furniture sourced from all around the world.
These seating areas are great for kids to read, lounge and play on their iPads and enjoy board games with friends. Check out our blog on best ways to utilize the porch for the whole family!
Easily host a tea time or wine tasting with your closest friends, admiring the beautiful full view of the outdoors from your porch windows.
Bench seating allows many guests to enjoy your screened in porch, while opening up the room and best utilizing your space. Choose a full wrap-around bench or include one in addition to the seating you currently have. A perfect mix of design and functionality. Crate & Barrel has some really beautiful benches to check out.
Bench seating and cushions can also be changed out according to the season, along with pillows and blankets. Lighter cotton blankets for summer at the cabin and cozy wool for cooler nights at home.
