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.
Determine how many people can fit comfortably on your porch. You may exceed that number at times but plan for average number of people you'll be entertaining or just having over for quiet conversations.
Comfort. We all like to be comfortable when we are outside. Choosing comfortable outdoor furniture should be a priority. Study tables and trays will be appreciated by your family and guests. Adjust for the sun and weather. Use porch blinds, shades, or outdoor curtains to block the wind and sun. Do not be chased back inside due to poor weather or a blazing sun.
Another idea would be to paint your pots in complementary colors, like forest green, emerald green and celery green. And yet another idea is to paint a pretty stencil on your pots after you spray paint them in your chosen color. A little imagination and work can go a long way. When you tire of black pots, you could re-paint the pots a pretty golden color for the fall.
So imagine a very attractive seating area on your porch that is softly lit by lamps that show off your potted plants. Or think about greenery or flowers in pots that line your porch steps and are illuminated in the evening. How inviting would that be? A plant lamp can add the perfect sparkle to your porch in the evening and create a welcoming tone.
Porch ideas can come from anywhere. Keep track of all of your ideas and before you go running out to do some shopping have a clear plan of attack. Make sure that you have thought your ideas through and that they are practical. Make sure you have taken your budget into consideration as well as the construction of your porch. Ideas can get us excited about the outside of our homes in ways that nothing else can, but make sure you think them through!
