I was thinking of a porch swing. We have a bay window which will waste a lot of space on the side opposite our front door.

I think a small round bistro table and 2 chairs would be better if this is to be seen from the windows inside.

I would love a swing there! Hang it perpendicular to the bay with a comfy wicker chair tucked into the corner of the bay and maybe another chair on the railing side if it will fit. A low bench in front of the bay could double as a coffee table when moved in front of the swing. Add some pots of flowers, an occasional table on the end of the swing and you will have a functional areas for informal dining or just chilling.

Dar- I have a front porch that looks about this size (unless the photo is decieving). I do not think there is room for all the above mentioned. There would be no room left to move around in.

If a swing fits, totally go with it! But, only if there's room for swinging action :) I agree with the bench under the bay window. I suggest some flower boxes on the exterior side of the railing and a fern hanging basket or 2 on the neighbors side for more privacy & to hide the attractive meters. Good luck!! :)
