Choose sturdy furniture

When choosing furniture for outdoors, just like for any other part of the house, you should take into account the space,  what kind of activities you are going to do with them, and the house style and decoration.

Wood, rattan, and wicker furniture are very much used outdoors because they are very resistant to any kind of weather and are easy to clean. However, aluminum, concrete, and iron furniture can also be used for the same reasons and they give a distinctive touch to the space. If you cannot decide what kind of furniture you want for your porch you can rent them and try out different styles.

If you want to have cushions they must be made of resistant materials. remember that they will be exposed to water and sunlight. Hammock, hanging chairs, and sun loungers are also very comfortable furniture, perfect for your porch.

Used colors from the nature

Being a connection between indoors and outdoors, a porch looks beautiful with colors related to nature. According to your taste and style and the house decoration, you can use light colors, green, blue, and earthy tones. However, if you like more vibrant and bright colors,  you can use pink, purple, or orange and combine them with neutral tones.

Plants aromatize the air and add life, color, and freshness to your spaces. They are an indispensable part of any outdoor space. You can have them in pots, vases, and planters. Before choosing a plant for your porch you must know how much water, sun, and humidity they need.

For example, roses, palms, daisies, geraniums, and hibiscus are very resistant to the sun, but spathiphyllum, calla lilies, dracaenas,  sansevierias are shade plants.

Protect yourself from the weather

It is important to have a place where you can sit in the shade to rest. An awning or a pergola can protect you from the Sun in summer and from the rain and cold in winter.  Wood or metal awnings are the most used for porches. The ones made of heather or reed are also very pretty and they will make you feel on the beach, even if you are thousands of miles away from it.

You can play, and choose furniture according to your taste. You can rent or buy them, but you have to always remember that any decoration outdoor must be in tune with the interior of your house.
