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.
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.
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.
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.
If you grow your flowers and vegetables in containers, consider spray painting your plastic pots to pull together the look you desire for your container garden. It's easy, inexpensive and you can change the color whenever you want. It's just another plus to container gardening. Why not try it this season?
Our daughter-in-law gave us this great idea. She wanted all of her flower pots to be black to go with her black wrought iron furniture, but the cost was prohibitive especially in the larger-sized pot sizes. She would have had to purchase more expensive ceramic pots to get them in black. So she purchased inexpensive plastic pots in various colors and sizes, took them home and spray painted them all black. She used a type of spray paint that's specifically made for plastic. The result? A great looking container garden with a unified look.
