    Shoes, poo bags, ball thrower, wet coats till they are dry enough to come inside. Porch not big enough or heated enough to keep nice coats in all the time.

    I drive it to the shops just down the road then park it on the drive to show my neighbours how rich I am.

    I’ve got some lovely original artwork up in ours. God knows why? It’s not like I, or anyone else, is ever going to stand in the porch and look at it.

    I’ve never even given this a moments thought. I really should move it to somewhere I can actually see it

    Other than that it’s the standard shoe and coat mountain

    We call ours a Beetl, it’s not posh enough to be a Porch.

    Wellies & a metal cow (not full size)…oh, and like pat, Amazon deliveries. Bit damp/dusty for coats

    Chilli plants, peppers, a big pot thing with walking poles and large plastic windmills in it and a couple of dozen pairs of shoes/boots/wellies/Crocs…

    Our kids are getting to the age where they can put their own coats and shoes away when we get in. Unfortunately the coat rack is way too high for them to reach so they end up plonking their coats on the floor or the bottom of the stairs.

    I’ve suggested putting 2 rows of coat hooks in the porch so the kids can have a row and we can have a row. My wife likes the idea but she doesn’t want to get rid of the coat rack in the hall. She wants 2 places to hang coats about 2 feet apart, on opposite sides of the same wall actually. Her reason is she doesn’t want the porch to be full of coats but I’ve told her we’ll put the hooks in a place where the coats won’t be pushing against the window so won’t look untidy from the outside which is her main concern.

    Our porch doesn’t get used for anything else at the moment and think the coats would be a good use for it.

    What does everyone is their porch for? I’m talking enclosed ones, not ones open to the elements

    Shoe Jenga with the added pushchair tumbling risk… Some rocks from the alps, the occasional dead mouse…

    Coats, shoes, cycle helmets.

    Matt has a point – last time I cycled through his scheme, a bloke was standing by his front door in his undies wondering why his world was suddenly illuminated by a mass of mountain bikers. #TrueStory

    Shoes and coats would be kept there and pram. Tight fit no doubt

    I keep pop and beer in ours as it’s nice and cool.

    We use the side door so coats get dumped in the utility which is toasty warm due to the boiler living in there.

    Insulation mostly, and a break between the weather.

    I store perch in my porch. I like to pitch a patch of putty on the wall too.

    Actually our utility room does the job of a porch so the porch is a place where the junk mail piles up and we fill a carrier bag with the stuff once every 6 months.

    Have not had one since 2001 but back then we had a cupboard (sliding door type) for coats and shoes and a bench (cut down old pew) for sitting down to put shoes on and off. Kids would take their coats off there and we would hang them in the cupboard.

    A porch? A ****ing porch?!

    Who’s got a ****ing porch these days?

    ****ing bourgeois *****.

    Help! I’m imprisoned in a porch.

    Our porch is completely empty and only has one door to the outside and no door to the rest of the house.

    Porch, I can only dream of a porch. You’ll be telling me you have a downstairs loo next. Yuppie bastards.

    We do not have a porch. We have a Spaniel biohazard decontamination chamber.

    With a direct comms link to Porton Down.

    Wait until you find out how many have a ‘spare’ room for drying washing…

    I sometimes pretend our porch is an airlock, just in case I ever need to eject an alien into the cold emptiness of space. It’s the little things that get you through the day.

    In the OP I was meaning a 6×4 upvc type thing in front of your front door.
