Queen Anne/Victorian Porch. If you love romantic and ornamental arts and trim or you are mesmerized by the Renaissance Era, I think a Queen Anne/Victorian style porch will be great for you. These styles of porches are truly fit for a King or Queen and they add a touch of old time elegance to your home. 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.
If the open, exposed porch was not getting enough attention, let's talk about enclosures and all the screened porch ideas that abound in this environment. You will find homeowners including better furniture, pricier décor, higher grade window treatments, and even top-notch lighting. It us almost has if they built a full-fledged addition onto their home (and in some ways, they have).
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.
When you want to spend time relaxing with your family and friends, your front porch is the perfect place to do that. If you have the right front porch furniture, especially porch rocking chairs, then everyone will enjoy spending time together on the porch just relaxing or even playing games.
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.
If you happen to have a wrap around porch, your outdoor porch ideas can probably move into the category of a \"multi-room, multi-functional\" space. There can be a living and socializing area, a casual eating nook, a formal dining room, and even an activity center. You can decorate each area with its own theme including a color scheme of complimentary paint, flooring, fabrics, and décor. Or, get a little more playful and bring a unique style to each area to fit the mood you'll be in when utilizing this space.
