4 Porch Design Ideas for 2017

February 17, 2017

Tags: ,

If you’re looking to install a new porch, or want to re-design your old porch, you will first need a plan. A simple design, even if the most basic, will help ensure your new or re-designed porch will be a success. That said, if you’re looking for a porch design that is a little different from the rest, here are 4┬áporch design ideas for 2017 that are sure to set your porch apart.

Porch Design Ideas for 2017

Outdoor Furniture

When it comes to porches, one of the best ways to add your own style is to use outdoor furniture. What is more iconic of an American porch than a rocking chair? How about the look of white wicker chairs and a couch with colorful cushions or pillows? Whether your aim is to build a porch, or hire a porch contractor in Maryland to build one for you, be sure to consider what type of furniture you will want to put on your porch when drafting the design.

Planters or Raised Garden Beds

No porch is complete without a little bit of nature. What really makes porches great is that they are a transitional area between the outdoors and the indoors. Why not make that transition a bit more obvious and include a planter or three into your porch design. A simple galvanized tub with some shade-tolerant ferns will add a great slash of green without a lot of maintenance required. If there’s no room on the porch, ask your Maryland porch contractor to surround the border of the porch with a raised garden bed instead, the options are limitless!

Porch Design Ideas for 2017

Porch Swing

Along the same lines as the previously mentioned porch furniture, one great design feature to incorporate into your new porch for 2017 will be a porch swing. Porch swings are not only functional areas to sit, but they can become a gorgeous focal point to the design of your porch. Choose a paint and cushion color scheme which matches your home but also sets the swing apart enough that it draws attention to this unique porch design feature.

Screened Porches

If you’re looking for an outdoor area, but also want to be able to keep the bugs at bay, hire a Maryland screened porch contractor to design and build a screened porch for your home. Ask them about winterization options as well for the screened porch so you can enjoy your new outdoor area in the winter too!
