Porch. Sunday , April 22nd , 2018 - 14:08:06 PM
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
