My third front porch idea is all about entertaining on your porch. How about turning a nice wooden picnic table into a drink and appetizer buffet for your next porch party? I saw this idea in the book titled Perfect Porches.
When you are searching for porch rockers, you want to be sure that you take time to find ones that are comfortable to sit in. Adding cushions is a nice, comfortable touch and also allows you to show off your decorating style even more. Try to get cushions that are made of fabric that is intended for outdoors. That way they will not fade as much in the sun and tend to dry more quickly after a rain. Always take into consideration the weather of where you live also. Since the chairs will be outdoors on your front porch you have to be sure that they will withstand the elements like hot sun, wind, hot and cold temperatures and humid or dry air. Otherwise, your investment will be short-lived.
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.
The pots look very smart with her black wrought iron furniture and black fire pit. So instead of noticing the pots, your eyes are drawn to the beautiful flowers she planted: zinnias, wave petunias, marigolds, dahlias and trailing vincas. Would work equally well with container vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchinis. You could paint your pots any color you like.
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.
