Porches are often forgotten about spaces, regardless of whether they are large or small, at the front of your house or at the back. However, they don’t have to stay that way. There are many things you can do to update a porch from a boring, unused area to a place where you’ll look forward to retreating to after a long day. Of course, how you style and furnish your porch will depend on your personal taste and what is around you - for example, if your front porch looks out on to a busy street, you may want to create a bit of privacy, or on the other hand, you may want to create an area that can be used for socialising. Today's blog will give you some inspiration on how you can transform your porch!

Furnishing your porch with gorgeous designer sofas such as the Oxleys Riviera Double Sofa will instil a sense of sophistication and class into the space. This sofa oozes opulence with its classic Italian style design and cosy cushioning and has a stunning shape that curves beautifully and elegantly. However, if you’re looking for a more contemporary sofa, the Rue Monsieur Paris Altoum Double Seater is ideal for you. This is a fascinating piece of furniture; with its smooth curves and seemingly endless tree rings, it will modernise your space effortlessly while complementing nature around it. 

Another fabulously stylish piece is the Oasiq Sandur Sun Lounger, which is ideal for porches that get a lot of sunlight! Place with one of our outdoor designer tables for a relaxing space where you can sip a cool drink and catch some rays!

Though this may not be possible for all porches, installing a swing chair is high up on a lot of people’s porch furniture wish lists. Not only will this installation create a lovely space where you can relax after a long day; it also brings a quirky and fun atmosphere to your home. We know not all homes have the luxury of privacy, and are sometimes facing other houses or a street - however,  simply planting a tree, a hedge, or a large outdoor plant will help block some of this out, giving you a space where you can unwind in peace on your gorgeous swing chair!
