Country House Plans With Front And Back Porches – If you’re seeking front porch suggestions that will make your pooch the envy of your neighborhood, then I have three inspiring thoughts here. I recently watched a porch makeover in which a beautiful mirror has been hung on a gorgeous contemporary porch. The mirror has been hung from chains and reflected the outside. Imagine hanging a mirror on your porch. Not just any mirror however, one that has an attractive framework. What could it reflect? The trees in your front yard? Perhaps some colorful hanging baskets hanging from your porch?
A mirror is a beautiful accent that you don’t expect to see on a porch. However, as you probably have noticed, more and more people are creating outdoor rooms that are comfortable like the rooms within their homes.This porch I noticed was no exception – it was superbly furnished with a wicker couch and striking red and white pillows. Just be certain to secure the mirror into your own porch so that it doesn’t blow with the wind.

My next porch decorating idea would be to use landscape lighting in the day to light up your porch. It bathes the plant in the day with a gentle glow. The homeowner can put the plant blossom on a timer. So imagine an extremely attractive seating area in your own porch that’s softly lit by lamps that flaunt your potted plants.

Or think about greenery or flowers in pots that line your own porch steps and are illuminated in the day. How tempting would that be? A plant lamp may add the perfect glow to a porch in the day and make a welcoming tone. My third front porch notion is all about entertaining in your porch. How about turning a wonderful wooden picnic table into a drink and appetizer buffet on your next porch celebration? I found this idea from the book titled Perfect Porches.
If your front porch or outside space is big enough to accommodate a small picnic table, it is possible to toss a pretty checkered table cloth on it (or not!) . Then distribute your choice of wine bottles, sparkling juices, crystal wine glasses, pretty baskets filled with fruit, cheeses, and crackers. Fill vases into the brim with fresh flowers from your own garden. And yet another great touch is to put soft pillows on the picnic table benches.
