My second porch decorating idea is to use landscape lighting in the evening to illuminate your porch. I know someone who invented a plant lamp.The plant lamp works with a potted plant or a hanging basket. It bathes the plant in the evening with a soft glow. The homeowner can put the plant lamp on a timer.
You definitely cannot go wrong with rockers on your front porch along with your other porch furniture because they give your front porch a welcoming look and feel, but will also give your family a great place to spend time together. Porch rockers are just one of many front porch ideas to make your porch a place where you and your family want to be.
Country Porch. If you live off the beaten path and are in love with the idea of a view from your front porch being more like rolling hills, wilderness scenes, or just a long stretch of land dotted with the beauty of nature then you will enjoy a country style porch. These porches typically are low to the ground but not always. They are usually made from wood or poured concrete and there is an array of different ways to decorate them. A country porch is never complete without rocking chairs. You can use as many or as little as you like but at least have one. A knitted afghan infused with vibrant colors hung upon a rocker is sure to add some down home charm. Wicker seating is a favorite on many country porches and you must not forget the swing! Another great idea for your country porch is to use repurpose items to give your porch a broken in and crafty feel. Repurpose items to decorate your porch can include old doors, antique washboards, wooden shutters, old windows and even renovated tables.
If you grow your flowers and vegetables in containers, consider spray painting your plastic pots to pull together the look you desire for your container garden. It's easy, inexpensive and you can change the color whenever you want. It's just another plus to container gardening. Why not try it this season?
My third front porch idea is all about entertaining on your porch. How about turning a nice wooden picnic table into a drink and appetizer buffet for your next porch party? I saw this idea in the book titled Perfect Porches.
So imagine a very attractive seating area on your porch that is softly lit by lamps that show off your potted plants. Or think about greenery or flowers in pots that line your porch steps and are illuminated in the evening. How inviting would that be? A plant lamp can add the perfect sparkle to your porch in the evening and create a welcoming tone.
