Bright and Fresh Porches & Outdoor Spaces

Spring is here, the snow is gone, and Minnesotans are beyond ready for a little fresh air. Honestly, this time of year we’ll happily take any temperature if it means winter has concluded. Spring is all about open windows and high hopes, right?

If you also can’t stop daydreaming about grilling, green everything, and sitting in the warm sun, then you’re in the right place. This week, our blog is devoted to our favorite backyard features and outdoor getaways. Porches, in particular, are a real lifesaver during the spring transition. You get a taste of the outdoors but can still control your environment (hint: fireplace).

Another fantastic way to bring the outdoors in is through oversized french or patio doors. We love how this feature brings in lots of bright, natural light. Additionally, they provide you with the option of making any space – from bedrooms to dining rooms – feel more like a luxurious resort.
