Porch. Monday , July 09th , 2018 - 05:47:29 AM
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.
Use furniture placement to create a special privacy area for reading or dining. An outdoor rug can be used to define a space also, whether it be a conversation area or bistro table and chairs for two.
Another idea would be to paint your pots in complementary colors, like forest green, emerald green and celery green. And yet another idea is to paint a pretty stencil on your pots after you spray paint them in your chosen color. A little imagination and work can go a long way. When you tire of black pots, you could re-paint the pots a pretty golden color for the fall.
Determine how many people can fit comfortably on your porch. You may exceed that number at times but plan for average number of people you'll be entertaining or just having over for quiet conversations.
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.
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!
