Best Screen Porch Ideas – If you are looking for front porch suggestions that will make your pooch the envy of your neighborhood, then I have three inspiring ideas here. I recently watched a porch makeover in which a beautiful mirror has been hung onto a gorgeous contemporary porch. The mirror has been hung from chains and reflected the outside. Envision hanging a mirror onto your porch. Not just any mirror however, one which has an attractive frame. What could it reflect? Maybe some colorful hanging baskets hanging from the porch?
A mirror is a beautiful accent you don’t 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 chambers inside their homes.This porch I noticed was no exception – it was superbly furnished with a wicker sofa and striking white and red pillows. A mirror onto the porch is a conversation starter for sure. Just make sure to secure the mirror into your porch so that it doesn’t blow with the wind.

My second porch decorating idea would be to use landscape light in the evening to illuminate your porch. I know somebody who invented a plant lamp.The plant lamp works using a potted plant or a hanging basket. It bathes the plant at the evening with a soft glow. The homeowner can place the plant lamp on a timer. So imagine an extremely attractive seating area on your porch that is softly lit by lamps which flaunt your potted plants.

Or think about greenery or blossoms in pots that line your porch steps and are illuminated in the evening. How inviting would that be? A plant lamp can add the perfect glow to a porch in the evening and create 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 beverage and appetizer buffet on the next porch party? I found this idea from the publication titled Perfect Porches.
If your front porch or outdoor area is big enough to accommodate a small picnic table, it is possible to throw a fairly checkered table cloth on it (or not!) . Fill vases into the brim with fresh flowers from the garden. And another great touch is to place soft pillows on the picnic table benches.
