Jody Mcclain Patios, 2018-05-03 09:10:38. Build a series of patio places that will be put to use almost all year around with the use of patio gazebos. A patio gazebo can create drama not to mention shelter from occasional rain showers and also the unhealthy rays of the sun. A slate pathway directing visitors to a patio gazebo with potted plants surrounding it provides a beautiful environment for open-air dining.
Janice Wilder Patios, 2018-05-05 08:52:34. One last patio idea to add to all your patio ideas. It's a hot summer's night (we wish!) and you're sipping a glass of something chilled. On the wall you've given some plants the night off. Instead you've replace the 'planted' pot with an empty one. Added a small saucer to the bottom to block the drainage hole and placed a citronella candle on a bed of sand. The flickering glow of the candle dances over the walls and keeps those blasted midges away - all at the same time.

Unless you've won the lottery recently, or you are one of those lucky people who get to work at home, most of your time during the day is probably spent at work. Even on weekends, most of us have so many errands and events to get to that we do not spend a lot of time lolling around.

You might feel a little silly crawling around on your porch (or the area of your yard that you expect to be covered by one soon) with a tape measure and tape, but in the long run you will be glad you took the time to make measurements. You should also measure any furniture or fixtures you are thinking about purchasing before you actually buy them. After all, there is little that is more discouraging than spending a bunch of money on a piece that ends up not fitting because you didn't think to measure ahead of time.
Luz Hansen Porch, 2018-07-23 23:58:57. Country Porch. If you live off the beaten path and are in love with the idea of a view from your front porch being more like rolling hills, wilderness scenes, or just a long stretch of land dotted with the beauty of nature then you will enjoy a country style porch. These porches typically are low to the ground but not always. They are usually made from wood or poured concrete and there is an array of different ways to decorate them. A country porch is never complete without rocking chairs. You can use as many or as little as you like but at least have one. A knitted afghan infused with vibrant colors hung upon a rocker is sure to add some down home charm. Wicker seating is a favorite on many country porches and you must not forget the swing! Another great idea for your country porch is to use repurpose items to give your porch a broken in and crafty feel. Repurpose items to decorate your porch can include old doors, antique washboards, wooden shutters, old windows and even renovated tables.

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.
Aurelia Copeland Porch, 2018-07-27 23:53:22. Small Porch. This porch basically is self explanatory. It is small, but that does not necessarily mean it should go without being noticed. There are many amazing ways to make your small porch cozy and stand out from the crowd. Carefully choose the items you would like to use on your porch. Maybe you just have room for one or two simple chairs. Use the space you do have and do not worry about the space you do not have. Add flower planters to the porch rails to create a lovely small porch. Use empty corner space for corner planters and tables. This will free up the much needed floor space.

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.
Aurelia Copeland Porch, 2018-07-21 23:34:56. 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.
Linda Richmond Porch, 2018-07-26 23:19:00. 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.
Aurelia Randall Porch, 2018-07-30 23:32:19. 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.
Amie Petersen Curtain, 2018-07-24 23:40:03. If you would like to have curtains with a more formal look, look for French pleats. These look extremely stylish. It also allows the curtain to fall straight. You can also try box pleats particularly if what you have is a thin fabric.Nowadays, insulated curtains are very famous. These curtains are great for blocking sunlight. These are heavier as compared to the usual curtains.Another drapery approach is the use of panels. Decorate the panels using ornate rings, valances and curtain rods. You may also go for lace or sheer curtains if you want the transparent and dim lights filtering into your curtains.
