You’re fortunate enough to live in a home that has a breezeway. If so, you already know how wonderful this feature is. But if you don’t know how to style it, don’t worry!

Breezeways look great when they are kept simple, allowing architectural elements like stylized windows and wood beams to shine through. You can find inspiration in the 16 breezeways below, no matter whether your home is on the coast, a city structure, or something completely different.

What is a Breezeway?

A breezeway is an open space that allows easy access to one area of the house from another. It is usually protected from the elements. Some breezeways can be enclosed to serve as mudrooms, or sitting rooms. Breezeways can enhance the architecture of a house and serve as important interior and exterior focal points.
