Your home’s front porch is like the smile that welcomes guests, beckoning them to come and stay a while. It’s also a place where members of your household can go to enjoy a quiet moment, relax, take an afternoon snooze or watch the sunset.
For those reasons, we have plenty of ideas for furnishing your porch using cottage style outdoor furniture and accessories designed expressly for a comfortable, serene porch experience.
Create a Serene Porch Using Cottage Style Outdoor Furniture
The article, Dream Spaces: Gracious, Spacious Front Porches, highlights beautiful porches across the United States. Here are some of the features they have in common.
Comfortable furniture. Make your guests feel right at home with comfortable furniture that is as worthy of the interior of your house as it is the front porch. Outdoor Porch Furniture with comfortable cushions is a wonderful place to start. If you have the space, a beach bed swing will become a favorite hangout.
Ambient lighting. Lighting is key to enjoying your porch past sundown. Use designer fixtures to enhance the ambiance and make your porch sitters feel even more at home. Hanging coastal lanterns or even a swanky chandelier are just the thing.
Soft Textiles. Ensure you and your guests are never more than an arm’s reach away from a beautiful blanket or throw that can provide protection from a cool afternoon breeze or a chilly evening. The Scramble Matelasse Coverlets in our bedding section add fun summertime color and a heap of comfort when you need it.
