Log Cabin House Plans With Porches – If you are looking for front porch suggestions that will make your pooch the envy of your neighborhood, then I have three inspiring thoughts here. I recently saw a porch makeover in which a gorgeous mirror has been hung on a gorgeous modern porch. The mirror has been hung from chains and reflected the outside. Envision hanging a mirror on your porch. Not just any mirror however, one which has an attractive framework. What would it reflect? The trees in your front yard? Perhaps some brilliant hanging baskets hanging from your porch?
A mirror is a gorgeous accent you do not expect to see on a porch. But as you probably have noticed, a growing number of people are creating outdoor rooms which are comfortable like the rooms inside their homes.This porch I noticed 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 into your own porch so that it doesn’t blow with the wind.

My second porch decorating idea is to use landscape lighting in the evening to light up 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 gentle glow. The homeowner can put the plant lamp on a timer. So imagine a very attractive seating area on your own porch that’s softly lit by lamps which show off your potted plants.

Or think about greenery or blossoms in baskets that line your own porch steps and are illuminated in the evening. How inviting would this be? A plant lamp may add the perfect sparkle to your porch in the evening and create a welcoming tone. My third front porch idea is all about entertaining on your porch. Think about turning a wonderful wooden picnic table into a beverage and appetizer buffet for your next porch celebration? I found this idea in the publication titled Perfect Porches.
If your front porch or outside space is big enough to accommodate a small picnic table, you can toss a pretty checkered table cloth on it (or not!) . Fill vases into the brim with fresh flowers from your own garden. And yet another nice touch is to put soft pillows on the picnic table seats.
