In the past, when people didn’t spend most of their time facing screens, many enjoyed hanging out on their front porches to get fresh air and to talk with neighbors. However, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) said that more and more homeowners are adding front porches to their homes. Here are some ways to decorate your front porch.
Create a Comfortable Seating Area
A cozy seating area looks more inviting to the family and guests. Place a couple of rocking chairs or a bench on your porch if there’s enough space. Center the seats around a rug, and add cushions and a side table to make the space even more inviting.
Make a Statement With Your Entry Door
The entry door should remain the focal point of your front porch. It’s the first thing that people see as they step into your home. Paint your door or the trim around it a contrasting color to make it stand out. You can count on your local home remodeler, STL Design and Build, for beautiful door options. Our designers can help you choose the best doors for your home at no additional cost.
Your front porch is a great spot to watch the sunset and spend a little time before dining indoors. Choose subtle lighting, just enough to allow everyone to see each other’s faces. Bright lights can make the area more sterile. String lights would look great in the space and give it a more romantic vibe.
Add Some Greenery
Plants add color to your porch, making it brighter and livelier. You can add even more colors by choosing bright ports or achieve a minimalist look with black planters. Window boxes would look nice if you have small front-facing windows.
