Small Porch. This porch basically is self explanatory. It is small, but that does not necessarily mean it should go without being noticed. There are many amazing ways to make your small porch cozy and stand out from the crowd. Carefully choose the items you would like to use on your porch. Maybe you just have room for one or two simple chairs. Use the space you do have and do not worry about the space you do not have. Add flower planters to the porch rails to create a lovely small porch. Use empty corner space for corner planters and tables. This will free up the much needed floor space.
3. Plan your space. You might feel a little silly crawling around on your porch (or the area of your yard that you expect to be covered by one soon) with a tape measure and tape, but in the long run you will be glad you took the time to make measurements. You should also measure any furniture or fixtures you are thinking about purchasing before you actually buy them. After all, there is little that is more discouraging than spending a bunch of money on a piece that ends up not fitting because you didn't think to measure ahead of time.
I recently saw a porch makeover where a beautiful mirror was hung on a gorgeous contemporary porch.
Queen Anne/Victorian Porch. If you love romantic and ornamental arts and trim or you are mesmerized by the Renaissance Era, I think a Queen Anne/Victorian style porch will be great for you. These styles of porches are truly fit for a King or Queen and they add a touch of old time elegance to your home. Most of these designs will include the use or wrought iron furniture, fencing or porch rails. You will also notice designs, curves and carved formations on the porch posts or railings and ornamental décor is the standard for this porch. Accent pillows line with ruffles, lace and floral designs are common as well as plenty of the color red.
Another option is to turn your porch or part of it into a screened room or three season room. Screen porch kits and porch window panels make it so easy to do. It's an excellent way to prolong your outdoor living season and add value to your home.
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.
