4 Easy Tips to Revive Your Porch for Summer


From cookouts with neighbors to simply enjoying a good book as you unwind for the evening, your front porch is an important part of your home—and one that deserves extra care and attention.

Your porch is also one of the first things people notice about your home. Is your porch inviting and attractive? Is it a comfortable, relaxing space where you can spend time with family and friends?  With a few simple updates and additions, you can have your front porch looking fresh and ready for the summer months in no time.  

Here are a few quick and inexpensive ways to transform the entryway to your home.  


          Clean and rearrange porch furniture
One easy way to freshen up your weathered porch is by simply giving tables and chairs a good cleaning. Use a bucket of warm, soapy water to remove last year’s dirt, mold and grime. Placement of furniture is also important. Rearrange tables and chairs to give your space a new, updated look and feel.  

       Brighten your space with fresh paint
Heavy rains and harsh winters can cause outdoor paint to peel and chip.  Breathe life back into battered railings, doors, flooring and old pieces of furniture with a fresh coat of paint.  Choose vibrant colors that complement your house and revive your home’s entrance.

       Embellish with Decor
A relaxing porch swing or rocking chair is a great addition to any porch.  Guests will enjoy comfortable seating, which makes your porch a welcoming spot for any outdoor occasion. Carefully chosen accessories and wall decor will help personalize your outside entryway while enhancing your home’s curb appeal.  Start with a simple ceiling fan or new decorative lighting as an easy way to embellish your space.  


 Add life with plants
A beautifully designed and well-maintained front porch, along with the right landscaping, can create immense appeal. Trim and prune trees and shrubs growing alongside the porch to keep your entrance tidy and clean. Hanging baskets and potted plants are also easy and practical ways to add to the impact of your front porch decorations while creating a relaxing ambience. 

Big or small, since your front porch is the entrance that sets the mood to your home, you want it to look organized, updated and inviting.  Without spending a lot of time or money, you can give your entry a charming new look for the summer!
