The elements that cannot be missing under your porch, from the seats to the dining table, recommended by Bontempi Casa.

For those who are lucky enough to have it, the outdoor space can become a true environment that “expands” the in-house rooms outside. So, it can be furnished just exactly an internal living room. The porch, in particular, is an appendix of the house that overlooks on a beautiful view and guarantees the privacy we need. Therefore, it is important to carefully choose the walls of the building we will place it on. To enjoy it at its best, then, it is equally important to evaluate well how to furnish your porch.

What are the pieces of furniture that cannot be missing under your porch? A lot depends on the type of house – is it in the city, by the sea, or on the mountains? – and on the style of your furniture – are you more into classic, rustic or modern? You will certainly want to create a comfortable and suggestive environment. That’s why we advise you to start thinking about a good number of comfortable seats, to match with practical tables and poufs as supporting elements for your readings, but also to enjoy a snack or an aperitif outside. If the space is large enough, you can also include a dining table or an extendable console table to furnish the outdoor porch.

How to decorate a rustic porch? Go ahead with wooden pieces of furniture in your favourite shade, light or dark, according to the type of atmosphere you want to create. The dark woods have an innate elegance, while the lighter ones give a fresh and informal mood to the environment. Margot chair lends itself to both interpretations as it is available in different finishes, to be combined with the shell that is available in a wide variety of fabrics and colours.

AQUA chair for outdoor

To furnish an external porch, perhaps near a swimming pool or a fountain, it is better to opt for waterproof materials such as polypropylene. It is in fact a waterproof and durable material, and it perfectly combines solidity and lightness. With its essential and modern design, Aqua chair is ideal for the outdoor, including the porch: being stackable, it is the trump card that cannot be missed when inviting friends to spend time together at your place.

If the porch is large enough, you may also turn it into a perfect dining area. We recommend Diesis table, that is practical and functional and Hidra chairs, that give a style twist to customize the outdoor. They adapt easily to any environment, you only make sure to choose the table size that suits you best among the three available, while the chairs are light and easy to be moved around when needed.

Finally, don’t forget the lighting to enjoy your porch even after sunset. You can place a row of lights suspended from one corner to another for a boho-chic style or simple outdoor lamps on the centre of the table.
