A fantastic way to add curb-appeal and enjoyment to your home is to freshen up your front porch and give it a facelift. A front porch is one of the first things that people notice about your home. Is your front porch welcoming and attractive? Is it a comfortable and inviting place where you can spend time with friends and family? Or maybe it’s a quiet retreat for reading a great book or listening to music?
Whether your porch is large or small, beautiful or lackluster, it makes a statement about your home. With a small investment, a little effort and some creativity, your porch can become a very appealing entrance to your home. How? Try these ideas…
Paint your front door, porch flooring and railings in a good quality exterior paint. Ever notice how great a home looks with a boldly painted front door? Choose rich colors that complement your home. Think outside the box. A beautiful striking color on your front door can be just the “pop” that makes all the difference.
How about a new doorbell, house numbers and welcoming door mat? Look at your local nursery or home store for some tasteful decorations for your porch like hanging planters or crocks for seasonal flowers. Upgrade your porch’s light fixtures.
