12 most beautiful wooden porch ideas

Porches, verandas, terraces... I look for inspiration, because my own wooden porch is coming closer and closer to me (my house misses one - what a shame!).

I have already made half of the design and now there is a crucial moment of deciding the second half. Making something most simple, might be not necessary something making me happy... and at the end there might be not big difference in price as well.

While looking for ideas, I have collected large amount of beautiful pics and decided to share 12 most beautiful of them. From different countries, made of different wood, each in different style. Looking at each photo of these collection " 12 most beautiful wooden porch ideas" I see elements I'd love to see on my future porch.
Another question is what wood to use for decking? Pine? which means softwood or more hardwood, local wood or exotix? maybe ipe decking? ... thinking...   

I wonder what is your favourite?

Happy outdoor living!

Beautiful. It's my husband dream to have a house with big and long porch. One day perhaps.

They're all lovely! As I scrolled down, I kept thinking, ooh i like that one, oh wait, that ones nice too, oh wait, that's better!

So hard to choose! Though I think in the end I liked the last one the most. Look forward to seeing your final design!
