An ideal place to bask in salty ocean breezes, this porch is a coastal oasis. Two woven rockers, positioned next to the stucco fireplace on the front porch, create the perfect place to unwind on a warm summer night, listening to the sound of the sea, the waves breaking on the sandy shore. This porch is functional and practical. It maintains its appeal while also serving as a great place for sandy feet and wet towels. Easy to clean flooring and furniture ensures that when you and your family retire from an afternoon at the beach, you would not worry about keeping things on the porch pristine.
It is no secret that we live for our porches. Is there any memory sweeter than those of childhood suppers on screened porches, or swinging the night away on the perfectly-designed porch. Face it: we pay for our mild winters with our sultry summers, and while modern air-conditioning may have made those deep porches of the past unnecessary, our Southern spirit just can not imagine our homes without our porches, whether they are wraparound, screened in, or a whole new porch design idea. A farmhouse porch just begs for a deep swing, piled with pillows and a tiny place to plant your iced tea. Maybe the classic white porch, with a row of inviting rocking chairs, is your style. Trust us, porch design ideas are something we take very seriously down here. We love a natural screened in porch that invites the landscape inside. Take a look at some of our favorite porch designs; maybe you will find some ideas for your own perfect perch.
