Buying Guide

The most durable materials for a front porch bench are wood and wrought iron.

Wood is the warmest and most traditional option, perfect for a timeless and classic feel. However, when it comes to front porch benches, it should also be treated to withstand the elements since frequent rain and sunlight could compromise it.

Wrought iron is also durable and reliable, but, again, should be power-coated to promote durability in different weather conditions. Depending on their design, wrought iron front porch benches can usually look more retro or even contemporary.

Matching a front porch bench with your house exterior can be achieved using a few simple tips and tricks. However, if you choose to have your front porch look entirely different from the rest of your yard that is okay too. It is, in fact, more important for your front porch to be warm and inviting than match the rest of the home's exterior.

To achieve a warm look and feel, place scatter cushions on your bench, and introduce some generous lighting options. Feel free to add plants and flowers as this always cozies up any area indoors or out, and add a wall clock and thermometer to make the whole porch area come together.

Front porch benches are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. As such, the size and shape of your bench should match and accentuate the look of your outdoor space. However, as a rule of thumb, the size of your porch bench should accommodate family and friends comfortably and have the capacity to hold the weight of at least two adults without effort.

Furthermore, when taking sizes into account, you should put some thought into the purpose of your porch bench and whether you want it to be practical and functional or simply ornamental. If it's meant to be a feature, then size shouldn't count.

Lastly, another important tip to take into consideration is if you have any plants growing near the bench, as it shouldn't be competing for space with your front porch. As a guide, a standard bench of between 42 to 60 inches will comfortably seat two adults, while a bench between 53 and 80 inches wide will seat anywhere between three to four adults.
