Palm trees, sand, surf ... who would even want to go inside? When it comes to front porches, making use of all available space is important. Because waterfront property is so often premium, porches this sprawling are rare. On a smaller deck, we think a dining table with comfy chairs is a great use of space. That way, you have an extra spot to have meals while enjoying the view but can also use the chairs to lounge, sip coffee, curl up with a good book or have a long chat with a friend.
