I like this covered porch a lot because it is so simple. It shows you all you need to make your back patio work well. You do not need a ton of bells and whistles to make it come together well. Now, when I look at porches, what I want to see are two things: a covering and decent furniture. With you backyard patio you do not have to put in a ton of expensive patio furniture, but rather you can pout in furniture that is nice and affordable. Remember, sometimes the best designs are the ones that are the simplest.
