The porch design projects on this page show off various approaches to connecting interior space to outdoor space. Some porch additions are designed to interact directly with the kitchen, providing a walk out from cooking area to outdoor dining area. During fair weather, the doors can be left open inviting the outdoors into your kitchen. In another design, a porch becomes an extension of the dining room, an inviting place to gather for dessert or after dinner drinks. In all cases, the porch design creates a finished room where outdoors and indoors meet.
