Add a Porch. Front porches are back in business, especially if there's room for a bench or a chair to welcome guests to the front of the home. Be sure to check building codes for setback requirements. Also, if you plan to entertain there, make sure your porch has at least 12 X 24 feet of space.
After: Pretty Sitting Fresh paint, bold fabrics, soft rugs, and furniture that's easy to arrange and rearrange make this L-shape porch a great space for parties and family gatherings. For flexibility, select lightweight furnishings that would work just as well inside the house.
Modern Country: White plastic Philippe Starck chairs feel right at home on a country-style front porch with their blue-ticking cushions. Light blue paint on the ceiling gives the sense that you're always sitting under a clear blue sky. Antique treasures like the stone guard dog and ball make their way onto the porch, bringing the home's eclectic style outdoors.
