Outdoor Screened Porch Heaters – If you’re seeking front porch ideas that will make your pooch the envy of your area, then I have three inspiring thoughts here. Two are front porch decorating ideas and the next is all about entertaining on your own porch. I recently saw a porch makeover where a beautiful mirror has been hung on a gorgeous contemporary porch. The mirror has been hung from chains and reflected the outdoors. Envision hanging a mirror on your porch. Not just any mirror but one that has an attractive frame. What would it reflect? The trees in your front lawn? Maybe some brilliant hanging baskets hanging from your 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 that 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. Just make sure to secure the mirror to your porch so that it does not blow with the wind.

My second porch decorating idea would be to utilize landscape lighting in the day to light up your porch. I know someone who devised 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 an extremely attractive seating area on your porch that’s softly lit by lamps that flaunt your potted plants.

Or consider greenery or flowers in baskets that line your porch steps and are illuminated in the day. How tempting would that be? A plant lamp may add the perfect sparkle to your porch in the day and create a welcoming tone. My third front porch notion is all about entertaining on your porch. Think about turning a wonderful wooden picnic table into a beverage and appetizer buffet on 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, it is possible to throw a fairly checkered table cloth on it (or not!) . Then spread out your selection of wine bottles, sparkling juices, crystal wine glasses, fairly baskets full of fruit, cheeses, and crackers. Fill vases to the brim with fresh flowers from your own garden. And yet another great touch is to put soft pillows on the picnic table seats.
