Navy Ideas Small Front Porch
Small front porch – Whether you live steps from the beach or hundreds of miles away, enjoy a lifestyle by the sea right on your own porch. Even a small porch can incorporate a nautical theme that will make you feel comfortable everyday in it feels like a vacation in a coastal private hostel. With the colors on the right, the furniture and accessories, you can transform the front of your house into a comfortable nautical style lounge.
To create a bit of a formal mood, go military with a navy-inspired marine porch. Complement a white wash paint job with some details in navy blue. Elegant, navy blue aluminum chairs with a small but tall glass table can provide a conversation area while maintaining an open and clear feeling on a small porch. Some braided rope and a hot glue gun add unexpected accents: Trim furniture or blinds with it, or wrap it around a porch post. A polished wooden or brass wheel bell lends a formality.
If you have always dreamed of a house in a tropical key where you can rest lazily in the sun, create a surfer style beach cabin environment. A small glider sofa in a tropical print makes for comfortable resting. Hang lightweight, white transparent panels on the windows or from the tension bars laid between the porch posts to help keep that breezy, airy beach feeling. Stick to a palette of cool colors, like green sea foam and aqua.
