Fall in love with your porch this fall with these simple design ideas that can take a so-so porch to a spectacular place you’ll want to sip your coffee and read the paper every morning.
The Right Lighting Fixtures
Having the right type of lighting fixtures is key to creating your ideal porch. Lighting can set a mood with the type of fixtures you choose, as well as the type of lighting. Rustic lighting fixtures are very popular for front porches almost every season of the year. They are pretty classic, and tend to evoke a feel of an old country farmhouse. Bronzed or black iron wall sconces with glass are a great choice for both sides of your front door. It creates a more inviting look and feel. We also suggest overhead lights if you plan to enjoy your porch at night. Use soft lighting to create a relaxing feel.
New Front Door
A new front door can make all the difference in your front porch. It’s the first thing people see when they come to your home, and is one of the main features of the front of your home and your porch. Simple, black, white, or wood doors are classic, or you could get a door with a nice punch of color, like red or blue. Right now we love farmhouse entry doors in conjunction with transoms and sidelights. These features together add character to the front of your home.
Comfortable & Cute Seating
The whole point of a front porch is to sit and enjoy it. So make sure you have comfortable seating. Enjoy your time on your porch with a nice rocking chair or a porch swing. And don’t forget a nice little coffee table so you can entertain. Bonus points for a nice woolen blanket to keep you warm when the sun starts to set.
