Best Screen Porch Designs – If you are looking for front porch ideas that will make your pooch the envy of your neighborhood, then I have three inspiring ideas here. I recently saw a porch makeover where a beautiful mirror was hung on a gorgeous modern porch. The mirror was hung from chains and represented the outside. Envision hanging a mirror on your porch. Not just any mirror but one which has an attractive frame. What would it reflect? The trees in your front lawn? Perhaps some brilliant hanging baskets hanging from the porch?
A mirror is a beautiful 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 which are comfortable like the rooms inside their homes.This porch I saw was no exception – it was superbly furnished with a wicker couch and striking red and white pillows. A mirror on the porch is a conversation starter for sure. Just make sure to guarantee the mirror to your own porch so that it doesn’t blow with the wind.

My second porch decorating idea is to utilize landscape light in the day to light up your porch. I know somebody who devised a plant lamp.The plant lamp works with a potted plant or a hanging basket. It bathes the plant at the day with a gentle glow. The homeowner can place the plant blossom on a timer. So imagine a very attractive seating area in your own porch that is softly lit by lamps which flaunt your potted plants.

Or consider greenery or blossoms in pots that line your own porch steps and are illuminated in the day. How inviting would this be? A plant lamp can add the perfect sparkle to your 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 to your beverage and appetizer buffet on the next porch celebration? I saw this idea from the book titled Perfect Porches.
If your front porch or outdoor space is big enough to accommodate a small picnic table, you can toss a pretty checkered table cloth on it (or not!) . Then distribute your selection of wine bottles, sparkling juices, crystal wine glasses, pretty baskets filled with fruit, cheeses, and crackers. Fill vases to the brim with fresh flowers from the garden. And another nice touch is to place soft pillows on the picnic table benches.
