    The color of the front door is a custom paint color. This color reflects that of the home's kitchen cabinetry. The cabinetry line used---Decora---and the finish a paint called confection.

    What kind of rods are best to use that will hold up in the outdoors? Just purchased some outdoor curtains for our screened porch and trying to figure out best rods and hardware to use that will not rust. Thinking of using PVC pipe.

    Any material that will not tarnish when exposed to the elements will work. The material will also depend on the weight of the curtains. We use aluminium tracks for our outdoor curtains.

    Another great option for colorful Adirondack chairs is Polywood. These chairs, made from recycled plastic, come in 13 colors and won't fade or chip the way a painted finish will.

    Hi there and thanks for your inquiry. Our patterned rug was the inspiration to the development of the front porch, purchased from an online retailer---and while we dont recall which one to be exact---we always have great success with Ballard Designs, Home Decorators, and Pottery Barn. They always have an array to choose from. Happy Shopping!

    Hello Jami---No questions are ever too silly :) We found the best way to hang our wreaths was with one of those command hooks by 3M. They have a variety of colors and weight limits to choose from. Thanks for the question.

    7. Outdoor CurtainsUnless your porch is naturally shaded by a nearby tree or fence, you may want to add a set of outdoor curtains to diffuse the sun’s glare. Just as with indoor curtains, you can pull them open when you don’t need them and close them when you do. If you opt for anything but white, it’s worth choosing a fade-resistant fabric — you would be amazed at how quickly the sun can bleach even the most vibrant colors.Shop for outdoor curtains and drapes

    3. Cozy Seating for Two in IndianaIn this Indianapolis home, a pair of orange Adirondack chairs with matching pillows encourages one to relax or have an intimate conversation. An outdoor rug underfoot adds softness, and striped curtains hide the driveway from view, increasing privacy. Try at home: Add outdoor curtains for quick screening. Mounting a curtain rod and hanging fabric of your choice can be a useful design trick for making a porch feel more intimate or screening unwanted views. It’s much faster than waiting for shrubs to fill in and more cost effective than adding fencing.

    Other Porch ConsiderationsProportion. You want to keep in mind how you will use the space and plan for furnishings that will provide for your porch activities, whether they are mostly for aesthetic or functional proposes. This porch is approximately 8 ft. (2.1 m) deep and 12 ft. (3.7 m) wide. It is low enough to the ground to do without a railing. You will notice that the scale of the brick piers and the columns that rest upon them is diminutive, while the stone piers and tapered columns in the Craftsman house example are far more massive and heavy in appearance and require a much larger-scale porch.

    6. Hang outdoor curtains. Look beyond the catalogs to find ideas for whipping up your own outdoor curtains on a budget — painter’s drop cloths, cute shower curtains and tablecloths can all work. If you don’t want to sew, purchase a grommet-making kit and pop in grommets along the top side of your fabric, then simply hang it from any curtain rod.
