Getting your family away from the TV and into the great outdoors can sometimes be a daunting challenge―unless you have a prime place for gathering. That’s what Gaye and Frank George discovered when they turned their back porch in Valdosta, Georgia, into one cool spot. “Frank and I―and especially our kids―are always having friends over to our house, and this porch invariably becomes the main go-to space,” says Gaye.

The space is outfitted with practically everything that you would find indoors―tables, comfortable chairs, pillows, lamps, rugs, a clock, and even a pillar candle or two. A couple of inexpensive oil paintings hanging on the back wall complete the look. A true crowd pleaser, the Georges’ outdoor hangout accommodates both their living and entertaining needs.
