Turn Your Front Porch Into an Outdoor Space You’ll Love

front porch

Warmer weather is almost here, but is your front porch ready? Consider turning your porch into a second, outdoor living room with these fun design ideas that will have you enjoying beautiful weather all spring long.

Add a porch swing

A porch swing just screams come sit for a bit and relax. Imagine yourself gently swaying as you chat, read, or just enjoy the outdoors. Consider one that is painted a bright color…yellow or teal for example…and add some fun throw pillows, a rug, and a coffee table to create a complete look.

Dine alfresco

Love eating outdoors? Turn your covered front porch area into an outdoor dining oasis. Add a long rustic table with benches, some string lights, lanterns, and potted plants, and turn the area into an entertainers dream. This ultimate hosting spot will make for warm weather dinner party memories that your family and friends will enjoy.

Second floor retreat

If your porch is on the second floor off the master bedroom, consider creating a spa-like retreat. Teak furniture (think chaise lounges or rockers), soft colors, and a fountain can offer a serene escape. Add greenery with plants in decorative pots.

Go vintage

If you love antiques or vintage pieces, extend this look to your front porch. When it comes to seating, look for vintage furniture such as reclaimed church pews or schoolhouse chairs. Add throw pillows, decorative wood signs, and fresh flowers for an inviting space that sets the stage for your home.
