Movie Porch

A delightful swing and comfy rockers welcome visitors to this 10' x 40' porch. A movie screen (rolled up into the eave, behind the ceiling fan) helps provide nighttime entertainment. Posted by Rate My Space contributor Valeriemissouri.

Simple and Serene

Rate My Space contributor Spincycle 421 says this screened porch at their Wisconsin home gets used rain or shine. Faux wicker furniture has saved annual touchup painting of the real thing.

Color Explosion

Exuberant is the only way to describe this porch and side entrance where the railings, window boxes and walkways are as colorful as the roses, hibiscus, geraniums and heuchera. Posted by Rate My Space contributor Brady.

Curb Appeal

Rate My Space contributor Sophia06 and her husband began creating this urban front-porch garden four years ago and then reluctantly had to move. "The good thing is this curb appeal helped to attract buyers to our home and we ended up with 19 offers in three days," she writes.
