Few things are as classic as the wooden front porch rocker. White paint is a great choice when you are looking to blend seating with a white exterior or porch railing.
Black rockers on the porch tie in nicely with a black trim color and help add interest and curb appeal to an all-white exterior.
Rockers are appealing both from the exterior and the interior. Because they don't take up too much space, rockers can easily flank exterior windows, so as not to obscure an interior view.
Cushioned chairs and couches make for a very comfortable front porch. Unlike rockers, which tend to have high backs, many upholstered outdoor seating groups are lower and can be placed on the porch without blocking windows at all.
Just like extra-large living rooms, big front porches can accommodate multiple seating areas. For parties or fun family times, having seating for a crowd is a bonus.
Stark and simple or decorative and chic can both work for front porch style. Throw pillows add design, color and, of course, comfort to any porch.
We adore teak furniture by the sea or any old place. It weathers beautifully to a soft gray color if left alone. If you prefer a tan color, simply apply teak oil every couple of months. Another option for this long-lasting outdoor furniture is to stain it the color of your choice.
Shiny white lacquer is such a fresh look for a porch, especially in contrast with a darker floor. Covered with cushions or all alone, the furniture has a clean and crisp look. For style that endures, try having your furniture sprayed with automotive paint at your local auto-body shop.
