Porch Refresh (5 Updates that Will Bring New Life to Your Porch)
Outdoor Living |

Warm weather will be here before we know it and with it comes lazy days sippin’ sweet tea on the porch (or at least that sounds like a dream, doesn’t it?)

The porch has long represented family and community, where people visit one another, watch their children play and talk to their neighbors.  It’s also the first thing you see when you arrive home and what better way to be greeted than by a porch that you love.

Here are 5 Updates You Can Easily Make to Your Porch for a quick refresh: 


Seating – Create a space to kick back and relax.  You could install an old fashioned porch swing or maybe a rocking chair or two. Find some seating that represents your personal style. Porch swing | Rocking Chair 


Add Plants – Plants not only add beauty but also create a sense of calm.  Not to mention, it can be a lot of fun to find which plants work best in your area and suit your tastes. Topiary | Button Fern


Welcome Mat – Find one that is pretty enough to welcome guests and tough enough for daily use. “Welcome” | Home Sweet Home


House Numbers – Is it time to update your house numbers? There are plenty of options these day from super modern to vintage – so you are bound to find some that fit your style. Modern | Plaque

Adding thoughtful details and making your porch an extension of your personal style is a great way to add to the living space of your home.  When you create a retreat, even on your porch, you can relax and enjoy the important things in life.
