The weather warming up, so we will be spending a lot more time outdoors. Now is the time to spruce up your outdoor spaces so that you can enjoy them all spring and summer!

When you are creating an outdoor space, one of the most important elements is the right seating! You want seating for the times you are settling in with a good book and sunshine, gathering with friends or having a happy hour with your partner!

It can be a challenge to find the right seating if you have a small space. But, there are actually a lot of small porch seating ideas! I’ve rounded up the best seating ideas for a small porch or patio that are under a $100!

What is the best chair for a small front porch?

Before you decide on a chair for your porch, you want to consider how you will use the space. Are you looking for a porch chair for one or do you want a conversation area? Folding chairs are really good options for small porches. You will be surprised by how good folding chairs look these days. I have a folding chair on my porch and you can even tell that its that kind of chair!

Best Small Front Porch Seating Ideas

I’ve rounded up the seating ideas for your front porch or patio!

1. Wicker Stackable Patio Chair

This armless wicker outdoor chair is a great option for a small porch! As they are stackable, you can buy a couple of them and bring out when you need more seating options. The chair is made for outdoor use so it can withstand the elements.

2. Coastal Farmhouse Chair

This beautiful coastal style chair can be used indoors or outside. However, I would only use this chair if you have a covered porch or patio. Pick out a chair cushion to make the seat very comfortable!

3.  French Bistro Outdoor Chair

This bistro style outdoor chair is beautiful! My neighbors have two of these chairs and a bistro table on their front porch and looks so pretty! These bistro chairs are also stackable which makes it easy to store the chairs when out of season.

Bistro chairs can be expensive and this option is under $100 which is a great deal!

4. Outdoor Rocking Chair

The most popular chair for the porch is a rocking chair! For a long time, I had a rocking chair on our front porch. It was a little bit of a tighter squeeze since I have a very small porch. So, I moved the rocking chair to our back patio.

If you have room for a rocking chair or two on your front porch, you will love them. There is nothing better than sitting on a rocking chair on your porch with your morning coffee or evening drink! These rocking chairs are under $100!

5. Colorful Metal Chairs

Are you looking for some color on your front porch? You can make a statement and add curb appeal with some colorful patio chairs. There outdoor metal chairs come in several colors.

6. Wicker Wing Back Patio Chairs

These wicker Wing Back outdoor chairs are very trendy right now. I saw similar chairs in a catalog a few days ago and the chairs were almost $500 each. This chair is a very affordable option and it would look good with any patio decor style!

7. All Weather Wicker Chair

This fun wicker chair is made for all weather use. It comes in three different colors to fit any color scheme!

8. Armless Dark Brown Wicker Folding Seat

Last but not least is this very versatile dark brown wicker folding chair. This type of chair is very similar to what I have on my porch. I love this chair because it doesn’t take up a lot of room and it holds up really well with rain, sun and snow.
