Aurelia Copeland. Porch. July 27th , 2018.
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.
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.
Use furniture placement to create a special privacy area for reading or dining. An outdoor rug can be used to define a space also, whether it be a conversation area or bistro table and chairs for two.
2. Make sure that your ideas are practical. If you live in a coastal area, flimsy wicker furniture might not be the best idea for your porch. What is pretty can also be functional and durable. It just takes some hunting. You will also want to make sure that your ideas will stand up to the weather and the wear and tear of normal life. Your porch is different from your family room.
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.
