This is especially perfect if you don’t have the backyard space for such a set or prefer the covering your porch offers. If you have extra space, add this all-white porch swing to relax after a filling meal.
10. Tiny Porch Furniture
Just because your front porch is little more than a square of wood outside your front door doesn’t mean you can’t use it. Consider a tiny piece or two to make your space homey. You never want to let any livable space go to waste.
- These folding chairs are handsome-looking and practical.
- This tiny mosaic side table adds a pop of color and somewhere to put your drink.

Make your front porch reminiscent of a day spent at your favorite park with this classy bench and picnic table-style setup. The warm wood is perfect for keeping the all-natural outdoor look, and the dark metal keeps it modern. You won’t ruin your outdoor space with indoor-looking furniture.
Use your porch as the outdoor living space it is. You can purchase this black park bench separately. The color will match the picnic table’s hardware, and the clever pull-out table gives you additional entertainment and seating space.
12. Multi-Function Front Porch
If you have a large front porch, then you can define that space for different use. Create a broad conversation area for sitting and chatting with this 11-piece semi-circular sectional. It gives a lot of seating with plenty of mini-tables for setting down drinks.
Speaking of drinks, keep this acacia wood bar cart nearby for pre-dinner cocktails. When you finish chatting and are ready for dining, move to the centerpiece of your porch, this six-seat all hardwood dining set. You’ll be mixing and matching textures with these wicker and wood options, and setting up clear-cut areas.
As a third space, try this extremely comfortable statement-making swing and comfortable lounger for a reading nook (or napping area). Add this chest to store your books and blankets, and also use it as an additional table or even seating.
Things to Consider
Before making your final decision on furniture for front porches, here are some things you should keep in mind:
- Sizing: Make sure you take all of your measurements and double-check listed measurements. For example, products from other countries may be listed in centimeters rather than inches.
- Budget: You may know what you want to spend but compare sets and items to get the best value. If you can get a four-piece set under budget, then maybe don’t buy individual pieces. If you can get something you prefer under budget, mixing and matching may be the best option.
- Matching: When shopping online, it can be hard to find an exact match to things you already have. Consider buying neutral colors rather than trying to color-match to your home’s exterior. A neutral or complementary color will look better than cushions that are slightly off a shade from your home’s paint color.
- Mixing: Don’t be afraid to mix colors, textures, and materials. You know what you like and what looks good. You don’t need an all-matching set if that’s not what you want, and it won’t look strange if you mix it up.
- Lifestyle: Answer yourself honestly about how you would most use this furniture. Do you often have people over and need a conversation-style setup? Do you need a full table, or do you not serve much food and not need a table? You can narrow down your options by deciding which pieces are must-haves based on your lifestyle.
- Weathering: If you have a very open porch, you’ll want to make sure your front porch furniture is wholly weatherproof. If you have a fully covered porch with at least some walling, you may be able to pick furniture that isn’t only for outdoor use. This will expand your options but also increase your upkeep.
