Solar Porch Post Caps – If you’re seeking front porch ideas that will make your pooch the envy of your area, then I’ve got 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 gorgeous mirror has been hung onto a gorgeous modern porch. The mirror has been hung from chains and reflected the outdoors. Imagine hanging a mirror onto your porch. Not just any mirror but one that has an attractive frame. What would it reflect? The trees in your front yard? Maybe some brilliant hanging baskets hanging from your porch?
A mirror is a gorgeous accent that you do not expect to see on a porch. But as you probably have noticed, more and more 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 white and red pillows. A mirror onto the porch is a conversation starter for certain. Just make certain to secure the mirror to your porch so that it doesn’t blow with the wind.

My next porch decorating idea would be to utilize landscape lighting in the evening to illuminate your porch. It bathes the plant at the evening with a gentle glow. The homeowner can put the plant blossom on a timer. So imagine an extremely attractive seating area in your porch that is softly lit by lamps that show off your potted plants.

Or consider greenery or blossoms in pots that line your porch measures and are illuminated in the evening. How inviting would this 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 in your porch. Think about turning a nice wooden picnic table to your beverage and appetizer buffet for your next porch celebration? I found 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 throw a fairly checkered table cloth on it (or not!) . Then distribute your selection of wine bottles, sparkling juices, crystal wine glasses, fairly baskets filled with fruit, cheeses, and crackers. Fill vases to the brim with fresh flowers from your garden. And yet another nice touch is to put soft pillows on the picnic table benches.
