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?

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.

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.
My third front porch idea is all about entertaining on your porch. How about turning a nice wooden picnic table into a drink and appetizer buffet for your next porch party? I saw this idea in the book titled Perfect Porches.
