The most creative porch seating area, super cozy!
Yet today’s post is all about design inspiration! We have 10 stunning outdoor spaces filled with fabulous balcony furniture ideas. Enjoy them, celebrate them, and let them inspire your next porch design project...
Let's start with the outdoor living area, since a porch is often a great place to put a sofa, chairs, and a table or two. Below we see a lovely porch filled with upholstered furniture, as well as a coffee table and side table. Ceiling fans guarantee a refreshing breeze on even the warmest days.

Your porch should reflect your personal style. You can use it as an extension of your interior style, or you can choose spaces in different directions for variation.
Tropical porches and outdoor living areas
This boho-Scandinavian style porch is full of cozy style and beautiful pieces.
If your style is modern, go for seating and tables that are cleanly lined and sleek. Sometimes easy ventilation is the best option! Plus, the less decoration you have, the more you can draw attention to the beautiful natural surroundings, especially if you have a view like the one below.

Look out for special touches like candle holders, artwork, and potted plants. Sometimes, it's the finishing touches that make the biggest impact! In the next photo, we see a throwback photo on Molly Sims' porch.
Benches provide excellent outdoor seating
Next, we put the spotlight on the outdoor dining areas that are often found on porches with plenty of space. A trestle table, folding chairs and benches populate the photo below. Check out the way the tableware fits with the cushions on the benches along the railing!

Whether you're creating a living or dining area, remember that there's no rule that furniture has to be wicker or metal just because the space involves the outdoors. If the porch is covered and screened, you have more flexibility in choosing the type of furniture you buy. Stick to what you like and respect your style. We love the fun, modern look of the sunroom below, including metal sculptures and metal furniture legs.

We end today's post by reminding you that the porch is the perfect space for a nap! After all, they call them bedrooms for a reason! For fun, try hanging beds, like the one-of-a-kind custom beds below. When the bed is not in use, the frame can be pulled up to the ceiling.

If your porch includes a bed, you can use bedding to express your style. Opting for vibrant shades is a popular choice, especially for those warmer weather months when nature is full of colour. For example, you can use shades of water to evoke the feeling of the ocean.
