Nothing screams relaxation more than hanging on your front porch. Even if it needs a little help, you can easily make your front porch more inviting with just a few small changes or enhancements.
#1 Add Cozy Furniture To The Front Porch
Adding comfortable and cozy looking seating to your front porch will make it feel more welcoming. And your guests will want to hang around a little longer.
You don’t have to get a full-fledged couch and put it on your porch to achieve this. You can make regular outdoor furniture seem more comfortable just by adding seat cushions or even some throw pillows.
#2 Include Plants
A few plants placed on the front porch makes it more vibrant and adds some life. You don’t need to create a jungle. Just a few will do. If you want to go a bit further you can add some cut flowers in a vase or fragrant flowers in a pot.
#3 Get A Rug Or Paint The Floor
Adding an outdoor rug to your front porch will create the feeling of an outdoor room. Plus it sections off the area for entertaining.
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money, then a little paint does wonders to spruce up your porch. Painting stripes or a pattern creates the effect of a rug without the high price tag.
#4 Make It Cozy With Curtains
Adding curtains not only makes your front porch more inviting, it also creates privacy. This in turn will make guests more comfortable and feel sheltered from the street.
You can have fun with this part, add colorful curtains that match the rest of the decor of the porch. Or keep them white for a more classic and tropical feel. Just make sure they are made of outdoor fabric, so they won’t bleed when they get wet. Or fade with the sun.
#5 Make It Colorful
Just because this is an outdoor space doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Add some color, this not only make the space more vibrant but inviting as well. You don’t even have to follow the color scheme from inside your house if you don’t want. This is one place where vibrant color is welcome.
Making your front porch more inviting isn’t difficult and shouldn’t cost a lot of money. Just a few little changes will do the trick. Don’t forget to put out the lemonade.
