You can do an amazing decorating job just by using color. Don't be afraid to use color. Not good with decorating color schemes? Neither am I; however I can pick out at least one color I like. So how do you choose a color? Browse through decorating books, visit a department store home furnishings department or go to your paint store and pick out some paint strips that you like. Paint strips give you great ideas of complementary colors, too!
Most of us have at least some type of look or style we'd like for our front porch: country, Victorian, Southern, contemporary, southwestern, Tuscan, eclectic or even a sports theme. Or perhaps you want a seasonal look depending on the time of year - spring or fall decorating, for example. Some prefer, especially those along the coast, a nautical look. Others, like in the southwest, might prefer a western theme. This will help determine the items you want to display on your porch. Look at garage sales, flea markets, your dollar store, or a thrift shop to find items like pictures for your wall, furniture, tables or other charming knick knacks to carry out your theme. Chances are you have some items in your home already that you can re-purpose for your porch.
We get asked often the question "What can I do to decorate my porch without a lot of effort?" Or, "I'm not a great decorator, what easy decorating ideas do you have that looks great?" Front porch decorating is much like decorating any room of your home. Think four things: color, theme, focal point and purpose.

one that wraps the pool, the most basic will have enough room to walk around the far side of the pool. It will have a deck area large enough to put a chair or two. And will have a protective fence so you can't fall off and also to keep out trespassers. It attaches to the pool and can be fully customized. If you have bigger plans you may want to consult someone who specializes in above ground pool deck designs. They will be able to help you save money where you might not otherwise see it.
