All-weather wicker combines a classic beach style with easy-to-care-for sensibility.Wicker and Rattan A close second to wood in terms of popularity, wicker and rattan outdoor furniture give your outdoor space a classic country or beach-style look – as long as you keep it under a cover. These natural materials, along with similar options like bamboo and natural grasses, can’t handle prolonged exposure to sun and rain. If you want to move your furniture to a more exposed outdoor location in summer, seal the wicker with wood furniture sealer or marine varnish (test first in an inconspicuous spot to be sure you like the results) or with tung oil to help preserve it. Painting is another option; finish with marine varnish to help seal the surface. The good news is that new synthetic options, often called “all-weather wicker,” look like the real thing but will easily handle outdoor conditions.Pros Inexpensive, lightweight and easy to care for. Style options range from traditional to contemporary. Natural materials can also be painted. Wicker look-alikes made from resin are a good choice for seaside locations.ConsThe natural materials will deteriorate with exposure to weather. Strong winds may topple or move lighter pieces.

Standout ceilings. Exposed rafters, beadboard and the famous Haint Blue hue draw attention to this often-overlooked porch design opportunity.

How wide is this porch? Maybe this much room is enough
