A porch gives your home façade a welcoming atmosphere and gives you front row seat to either your street or garden area. To level up your porch space, here are 5 porch ideas you might want to try and transform your porch experience into a whole new level.
A breezy porch
It can get really humid during summertime but a sturdy ceiling fan can easily combat this. When a natural breeze is hard to come by, create it yourself with a ceiling fan always ready to give some cooling effect to your porch area.
You might be deterred staying in your porch for long because of pesky insects. Deter mosquitoes by surrounding your porch areas with natural insect repelling plants like basil, chives, chrysanthemums, eucalyptus, and lavender to name a few. Having these plants and herbs around your porch gives you access to fresh ingredients for your culinary dishes and bring a wonderful smell to your porch.
Trimmed front yard
Make your porch stand out with a neatly trimmed landscape especially if you have shrubs and bushes just below your porch. Make sure they aren’t stealing the limelight away from your porch balustrades.
Another way to make your porch stand out is to repaint your porch. Whether it’s bringing back that balustrade a white picket fence look or making your ceiling as blue as a summer sky, make your porch shine as bright as summer with a new hue!
Nothing makes your porch more inviting and warm than cozy furnishings. Make your guests feel your warm hospitality with plump pillows and comfortable seating which can easily urge them to lounge a little longer in your porch. With the street scene to entertain them and comfortable furnishings for a seating arrangement, watch how your porch becomes the favorite of the neighborhood.
