Wrap Around/Farmhouse Porch. There is no porch any more grand and welcoming than the wrap around farmhouse porch. This porch is a true American favorite. The expansive space on the porch makes it easy to entertain guests, relax after a long day or just hang out with the children or grandchildren. These porches are normally simple in design and feature standard porch furniture, wicker style furniture, rockers, and simple tables.
Ideas can come from anywhere. A simple internet search for porches will turn up more inspiration than you will know what to do with. Other great places to get ideas are the home construction and design sections of your local bookstores and libraries. Magazines can also provide a wealth of material. You might also just go for a drive and see what other people are doing with their porches.
Consider how you will use your porch. Will it be used mainly for relaxing or entertaining. Your answer will determine what kind of outdoor furniture you will need and where it will be placed. It will also determine what amenities you may want. If entertaining, you may need extra storage space for dining utensils, cups, and other items you will want to keep handy. You may also need additional lighting like outdoor table lamps or even exterior chandeliers.

Do you remember when a porch was simply a structure on the outside of your home that was there to protect those coming into your house from the weather? How about the time when it was a simple wood or cement foundation, maybe with a few columns or railings, on which you set a rocking chair and watched the world go by? Well, say bye-bye to that. Porches have reached a new frontier.
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.
