Welcome People to Your Beautiful Home With These Ideas

Apr 17, 2015

The porch is a space that you will probably be getting plenty of use out of as the weather gets warmer in the next few months. It’s also an integral part of your home’s curb appeal and helps to provide your guests with their first impression of your home, which means that you should make it pleasant and inviting. The following are a few outdoor design trends to consider to help spruce up your front porch:

    Re-use old furniture – If you have any old dressers that you are getting rid of, keep the drawers. You can use them as planters on your front porch. Just paint them using light and friendly colors and you’ll have a unique and charming container to grow your plants in.

  • Paint a pallet – A pallet can be the perfect outdoor art piece. Just paint it in whatever way you want and rest it against the porch wall to help create a small focal point.
  • Planter chandelier – Hang a chandelier from your porch ceiling, but instead of using light fixtures, use one with planters so that you have a number of plants hanging down.
  • Add a porch swing – Nothing is more relaxing and comfortable than sitting on a porch swing on a summer afternoon. Not to mention that it helps create a cozy and inviting atmosphere as well.
  • Porch floor design – If you have a wooden porch floor, consider cutting a shape out of cardboard and tracing it around on your floor to create a pattern. Then go over it with paint to provide visual depth to the floor.

These are just a few ideas that we recommend in order to help improve your porch design.
