Add a Little Summer to Your Front Porch

Jul 21, 2014

After spending a day in the warm sun, what’s a better way to relax than enjoying the cool summer night on your front porch? If you’re looking to create a welcoming, comfortable front porch without spending too much money, we have a guide for you.

Start by picking out a theme, color or a piece of furniture that you want to base your design on. If you love heirloom furniture, go from there. Or if you prefer minimalism design, base it off of that.

Apply a little paint.
Everyone knows that a fresh coat of paint can create a total transformation. If you love the idea of a bold door, paint it a different color like red. Or add an accent color to your porch that complements the colors of your house.

Add a porch swing.
A swing not only gives your porch a classic look, but also gives you a comfortable place to rest.

Liven up your furniture.
Whether you repaint your porch furniture or redo the cushions, it’s easy to give your front porch a redesign by updating your furniture.

Throw down a rug.
A rug is a great way to add patterns and colors outside. Get creative and find pillows that match.

Install light fixtures.
A chandelier or classic hanging lights are charming in the daytime as well as nightfall. Hit up garage sales and you’re sure to find something great for your ceiling.

Add colorful flowers.
One of the fastest and easiest ways to freshen up your porch for summer is by adding containers and hanging baskets brimming with flowers.
