Sun Porch Screen Rooms – If you’re looking for front porch ideas that will make your pooch the envy of your area, then I’ve got three inspiring ideas here. Two are front porch decorating ideas and the next is all about entertaining on your porch. I recently watched a porch makeover where a gorgeous mirror was hung on a gorgeous contemporary porch. The mirror was hung from chains and represented the outdoors. Envision hanging a mirror on your porch. Not just any mirror however, one that has an attractive frame. What would it reflect? Maybe some colorful hanging baskets hanging from the porch?
A mirror is a gorgeous accent you don’t expect to see on a porch. However, as you probably have noticed, a growing number of people are creating outdoor rooms that are comfortable like the rooms within 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 to your porch so that it doesn’t blow with the wind.

My next porch decorating idea is to utilize landscape lighting in the day to illuminate your porch. I know someone who invented a plant lamp.The plant lamp functions using a potted plant or a hanging basket. It bathes the plant in the day with a gentle glow. The homeowner can put the plant lamp on a timer. So imagine a very attractive seating area on your porch that’s softly lit by lamps that show off your potted plants.

Or consider greenery or blossoms in pots that line your porch steps and are illuminated in the day. How inviting would that be? A plant lamp may add the perfect sparkle to a porch in the day and make a welcoming tone. My third front porch idea is all about entertaining on your porch. How about turning a nice wooden picnic table to your drink and appetizer buffet for the next porch party? I found this idea from the publication titled Perfect Porches.
If your front porch or outside space is big enough to accommodate a small picnic table, it is possible to throw a pretty checkered table cloth on it (or not!) . Then spread out your choice of wine bottles, sparkling juices, crystal wine glasses, pretty baskets full of fruit, cheeses, and crackers. Fill vases to the brim with fresh flowers from the garden. And another great touch is to put soft pillows on the picnic table seats.
