Porch. Monday , July 09th , 2018 - 05:09:34 AM
The most common outdoor porch ideas - especially front porch ideas - center on furniture and decor. Homeowners are thinking twice about just plopping down an old chair or sofa with a rickety table. Their horizon of porch ideas reaches far into the realms of stores and design houses, filled with specialty fabrics, eclectic or retro furniture styles, and unique decorative accents. People are even putting up curtains (and who ever saw that coming?).
I recently saw a porch makeover where a beautiful mirror was hung on a gorgeous contemporary porch.
There are many different methods to create an enclosed deck. A few types that are not common are a series of sliding doors that may be extended to close off the outside from annoyances, such as bugs or noise. When a clear and open deck is desired, the homeowner simply has to open the overlapping extended doors to return to the outside. Other configurations include actually creating a wall with screened windows, although this almost like adding a finished new addition.
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.
Porch ideas can come from anywhere. With the many online sites offering pictures and information about porches, you can easily get an idea for building a porch or remodeling your existing porch. Home improvement magazines are also another source you can use in your search. While there may be many different kinds of porches that catch your eye, you have to really look into each one of them to make sure that the design will complement that of the exterior of your home. You also have to ensure that you have the required amount of space to use one of these ideas.
But as you probably have noticed, more and more people are creating outdoor rooms that are comfortable like the rooms inside their homes.This porch I saw was no exception - it was beautifully furnished with a wicker sofa and striking red and white pillows. A mirror on the porch is a conversation starter for sure. Just be sure to secure the mirror to your porch so that it does not blow with the wind.
