Goodbye winter and hello spring! With spring right around the corner, we can soon expect to see the flowers blooming, butterflies and warmer weather. Of course, with the shift in seasons, you’ll likely want to spend more time outside enjoying the sun. That’s why it’s essential to make your porch comfortable and inviting. Here are a few easy ways you can get your porch spring ready.
Invest in Outdoor Summer
If you haven’t already, it’s time to invest in comfortable outdoor furniture, so you will be able to take advantage of the beautiful weather. Best of all you can do so within a small budget. When purchasing furniture for your porch, you can bring in repurposed or vintage furniture.
If your porch isn’t large enough to accommodate large pieces of furniture, try a collection of rocking chairs instead. Can you imagine sitting down and enjoying the scenery while sipping a cold beverage? You don’t have to worry about finding rocking chairs that match; you can invest in ones that feature different styles and scale.
Creating a Lighting Scheme
Sufficient lighting is critical but often overlooked. Light is an essential element, especially while you enjoy sitting on your porch during the evening, reading and for safety reasons. From a few well-placed simple LED light posts or scones installed in the wall to a dramatic chandelier hanging from the porch ceilings there are many different lighting options.
Find the Perfect Outdoor Rug
You can make a room feel more structured by adding a patterned rug to bring your design scheme together. Choose a rug that is made for outdoor use.
Create Layers of Decor
If you want to make your porch feel like a comfortable sitting area, create layers of decor. You can use various accessories such as pillows, lamps, plants and side tables. Make sure to incorporate enough table space for your cold drinks!
We hope you will find a greater joy in using your outdoor space this season!
