Porch Post Wrap Ideas – If you’re seeking front porch suggestions that will make your pooch the envy of your area, then I have three inspiring ideas here. Two are front porch decorating ideas and the next is all about entertaining on your own porch. I recently saw a porch makeover in which a gorgeous mirror was hung onto a gorgeous modern porch. The mirror was hung from chains and represented the outside. Imagine hanging a mirror onto your porch. Not just any mirror but one that has an attractive frame. What could it reflect? The trees in your front yard? Perhaps some colorful hanging baskets hanging from the porch?
A mirror is a gorgeous accent you do not expect to see on a porch. However, as you probably have noticed, more and more people are creating outdoor rooms that are comfortable like the chambers inside their homes.This porch I noticed was no exception – it was beautifully furnished with a wicker sofa and striking white and red cushions. A mirror onto the porch is a conversation starter for certain. Just be certain to secure the mirror to your porch so that it doesn’t blow with the wind.

My next porch decorating idea is to use landscape lighting in the evening to light up your porch. I know somebody who invented a plant lamp.The plant lamp works 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 an extremely attractive seating area in your porch that’s softly lit by lamps that flaunt your potted plants.

Or consider greenery or flowers in pots that line your porch steps and are illuminated in the evening. How tempting would this be? A plant lamp may add the perfect glow to your porch in the evening and make a welcoming tone. My third front porch idea is all about entertaining in your porch. Think about turning a wonderful wooden picnic table to your drink and appetizer buffet for the next porch party? I found this idea in the book titled Perfect Porches.
If your front porch or outside area is large enough to accommodate a small picnic table, it is possible to toss a pretty checkered table cloth on it (or not!) . Fill vases to the brim with fresh flowers from the garden. And another nice touch is to place soft cushions on the picnic table seats.
