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.
Perhaps the least common setup is one that an individual would expect to find in a hacienda in Spain or Mexico. Having a partially enclosed deck or back patio with walls will help shield the occupants from the extremes of weather. Without actual windows or screens filling in the open spaces allows the homeowners to be part of the natural outside which is the main goal of having a deck in the first place.
There are some many porch ideas available today that no matter what look, feel, or use you want or need, you can design to your hearts content!
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.
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.
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.
