In the past, a nicely shaded veranda or porch was the heart of every home’s social life. The air-conditioning was not existing yet so a semi-open space with a roof that protects a family from the hottest hours was a very needed relief. For that reason, the architecture in the regions where the climate is very sunny would always include a courtyard or a porch. If you are looking for unique ideas, look for Southern or Mediterranean-style houses as those usually depict stunning and relaxing verandas where to enjoy a cold glass of lemonade (or tequila). Mediterranean porch with Mexican tiles is what will probably pop up the most in your Pinterest search. Let’s have a look at some of the most functional and beautiful ideas on how to decorate your exteriors with Mexican Talavera tiles.
The porch was considered the social spot in which people would chat with their neighbors or just chill out outside during the hot summer days while watching over their kids as they play in the front yard. Today it is living its comeback as not everyone enjoys the constant cold air from aircon. Also, being outside gives you the opportunity to barbecue as much as you want, put on some louder music, dance, and do any other fun things to do with friends and family. You will want this popular spot to be well protected from both exterior factors like wind and rain as well as a human activity.
