Of course, before you get your heart set on any one of the ideas you have put together for your new (or remodeled) porch, there are some things you will want to consider.
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.
Porch ideas can come from anywhere. Keep track of all of your ideas and before you go running out to do some shopping have a clear plan of attack. Make sure that you have thought your ideas through and that they are practical. Make sure you have taken your budget into consideration as well as the construction of your porch. Ideas can get us excited about the outside of our homes in ways that nothing else can, but make sure you think them through!
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.
When you are searching for porch rockers, you want to be sure that you take time to find ones that are comfortable to sit in. Adding cushions is a nice, comfortable touch and also allows you to show off your decorating style even more. Try to get cushions that are made of fabric that is intended for outdoors. That way they will not fade as much in the sun and tend to dry more quickly after a rain. Always take into consideration the weather of where you live also. Since the chairs will be outdoors on your front porch you have to be sure that they will withstand the elements like hot sun, wind, hot and cold temperatures and humid or dry air. Otherwise, your investment will be short-lived.
You also have to make sure that the ideas for porches that you really like are practical for the area in which you live. Some porches are well suited for windy areas, whereas others are not. If you live on the coast and het frequent high winds and rain, then a porch that consists mainly of glass may not be a good idea unless it is an enclosure between two offsets on your home.
