Do not forget your front porch! Your porch has existing space and with the right front porch ideas you can transform it easily into an outdoor living area.
I recently saw a porch makeover where a beautiful mirror was hung on a gorgeous contemporary porch.
1. What is your budget? Porches are not cheap. Just the simple act of building one can be expensive, so take a look at what you can afford. Learn what building materials cost in your area. Price the various fixtures you are thinking of using. Chances are there are places that will sell you the same fixtures for half the price of that \"brand name\" home improvement store across the street from the mall.
If the open, exposed porch was not getting enough attention, let's talk about enclosures and all the screened porch ideas that abound in this environment. You will find homeowners including better furniture, pricier décor, higher grade window treatments, and even top-notch lighting. It us almost has if they built a full-fledged addition onto their home (and in some ways, they have).
One of the main thing that will determine which of the many ideas you have for building a porch is the amount of money you have available for such a project. It is a good idea to purchase all your materials first so that you have everything you need. There is nothing worse than thinking you have enough materials only to find that you run out halfway through the project and have to wait until you can afford it to buy the rest of what you need. This will make your home look unsightly during the waiting period.
The most common outdoor porch ideas - especially front porch ideas - center on furniture and decor. Homeowners are thinking twice about just plopping down an old chair or sofa with a rickety table. Their horizon of porch ideas reaches far into the realms of stores and design houses, filled with specialty fabrics, eclectic or retro furniture styles, and unique decorative accents. People are even putting up curtains (and who ever saw that coming?).
