Small Front Porch Bench Ideas – If you are looking for front porch suggestions that will make your pooch the envy of your area, then I have three inspiring thoughts here. I lately watched a porch makeover where a beautiful mirror was hung on a gorgeous contemporary porch. The mirror was hung from chains and represented the outdoors. Imagine hanging a mirror on your porch. Not just any mirror however, one that has an attractive frame. What could it reflect? Perhaps some colorful hanging baskets hanging from the porch?
A mirror is a beautiful accent that you don’t expect to see on a porch. But 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 noticed was no exception – it was beautifully furnished with a wicker couch and striking white and red pillows. Just be certain to secure the mirror into your own porch so that it does not blow with the wind.

My second porch decorating idea is to utilize landscape lighting in the evening to illuminate your porch. I know somebody who devised a plant lamp.The plant lamp functions with a potted plant or a hanging basket. It bathes the plant at the evening 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’s softly lit by lamps that show off your potted plants.

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