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.
You definitely cannot go wrong with rockers on your front porch along with your other porch furniture because they give your front porch a welcoming look and feel, but will also give your family a great place to spend time together. Porch rockers are just one of many front porch ideas to make your porch a place where you and your family want to be.
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.
Probably one of the most interesting outdoor porch ideas is adding a fireplace. Depending on the size of your area, ventilation, materials, etc., you may be able to add this popular addition and further enhance the ambiance! (But be sure to hire a professional for this one, folks! Safety first.)
One of the main thing that will determine which of the many ideas you have for building a porch is the amount of money you have available for such a project. It is a good idea to purchase all your materials first so that you have everything you need. There is nothing worse than thinking you have enough materials only to find that you run out halfway through the project and have to wait until you can afford it to buy the rest of what you need. This will make your home look unsightly during the waiting period.
Do you have a container garden? Container gardens are friendly for porches, patios and decks where you don't have a lot of mainstream gardening space. A container garden allows you to have herbs, vegetables and flowers in different sized pots right on your porch. But do your pots look like a hodge podge collection of many sizes and colors that don't quite jive together? Then how about painting a bunch of inexpensive pots in a color(s) that complements your porch or patio.
