Porch. Monday , July 09th , 2018 - 05:04:10 AM
There are many different methods to create an enclosed deck. A few types that are not common are a series of sliding doors that may be extended to close off the outside from annoyances, such as bugs or noise. When a clear and open deck is desired, the homeowner simply has to open the overlapping extended doors to return to the outside. Other configurations include actually creating a wall with screened windows, although this almost like adding a finished new addition.
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.
The spring season is the starting point for outdoor enjoyment. As summer comes along, throwing a reunion party for the family is a common occurrence while all of the children are out of school. Even part of the fall season might be able to be spent outside with a grill and friends. What allows an individual to do this is a deck.
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.
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.
