Porch Ideas

Have you been looking for porch ideas to enhance your home’s curb appeal? Start by thinking of the porch as your home’s welcome center – the place where first impressions are made. Welcome friends, family and neighbors in style by utilizing Mendocino redwood to make your porch ideas a beautiful reality. Whether the front porch is just big enough for the door to swing open, or a spacious affair that wraps around the house, look for porch ideas that can help maximize the beautiful space .

If you’re planning for a small redwood porch, think of it as a transitional space into your home and let your porch ideas reflect your interior design concept. You may want to paint the ceiling above your porch, or any porch railings you may have, a color that complements the inside of your home.

You could also paint your front door an attractive contrasting color in high-gloss paint to add interest. Why not invest in stylish hardware for your house number? There are lots of great ideas for turning your entire front porch space into an inviting showplace. Adventurous homeowners may even want to use a bold, outdoor rug for their front porch instead of a standard doormat.

If your future redwood porch is roomy, consider adding gorgeous, durable redwood furniture. Picnic tables, benches, Adirondack chairs or porch swings can be easily built with redwood and instantly add living space to your home. Adding potted plants or lattice work will also go a long way to adding touches of elegance to your redwood porch.
