The front porch, much like curb appeal, is essentially the welcome your house offers prospective buyers. If you have an out-of-date, or lackluster front porch, chances are you’re missing out on maximizing your home’s potential. Never fear! We’re here to give you a few tried and tested ways to transform your porch into an inviting space.
Here are our Top 3 Ways To Update Your Front Porch:
If it’s been some time since you’ve adorned your furnishings with new cushions and upholstery, now is the time! And since it’s the fall season, chances are good you can find water and fade resistant pillows (which protect the color and prevent mildew) on sale at many outdoor furniture locations.
Autumn is here, and soon Thanksgiving and other holidays will be right around the corner. Freshen your porch setting with fall foliage, pumpkins, lanterns, and even potted shrubbery! Go green with your front porch to add a breath of fresh air – bringing out ferns, seasonal flowers, or even fake assortments of flowers.
Why not soften up the front porch by bringing the feel of your indoor enviroment out-of-doors? Rocking chairs, a great area rug, or an elongated swing are perfect for long front porches. You can add side tables with sturdy lamps, adorning them with books or your favorite decorative mementos. Soft colors for throws and pillows will give your outdoor area an intimate and cozy upgrade.
As with all home settings, don’t be afraid to add a touch of personality and creativity. Remember to look at the space with a buyer’s eye, and perhaps air on the side of simple sophistication as you go.
