There are some many porch ideas available today that no matter what look, feel, or use you want or need, you can design to your hearts content!
3. Plan your space. You might feel a little silly crawling around on your porch (or the area of your yard that you expect to be covered by one soon) with a tape measure and tape, but in the long run you will be glad you took the time to make measurements. You should also measure any furniture or fixtures you are thinking about purchasing before you actually buy them. After all, there is little that is more discouraging than spending a bunch of money on a piece that ends up not fitting because you didn't think to measure ahead of time.
Another option is to turn your porch or part of it into a screened room or three season room. Screen porch kits and porch window panels make it so easy to do. It's an excellent way to prolong your outdoor living season and add value to your home.
The purpose for which you want to use the porch will also affect your ideas. If you want this to be a space where you can sit and enjoy the sunshine, then you may want to look for an open design. If you want to have it as a protection for the entrance to your home, you may want to consider having closet space inside so that it serves as a mudroom.
Perhaps the least common setup is one that an individual would expect to find in a hacienda in Spain or Mexico. Having a partially enclosed deck or back patio with walls will help shield the occupants from the extremes of weather. Without actual windows or screens filling in the open spaces allows the homeowners to be part of the natural outside which is the main goal of having a deck in the first place.
Granted, in inclement weather, most people don't enjoy contending with the rain, snow, or wind. The wisest investment would be to incorporate a new deck or existing deck under a covered or screened in setup. This is the only way to guarantee almost complete year round use of the deck, while still allowing fresh air to circulate.
