Curb Appeal: Prettying Up Your Porch

Posted on May 23, 2018

Front Porch Curb Appeal

Spring is the perfect time to up your home’s curb appeal. Of course, there’s the usual round of yard work, repairs, and other necessary tasks that need to get done, but this year you can reward yourself (and your home!) by prettying up your porch.

A welcoming porch sets the tone for your guests before they even enter. We’ve rounded up our top three ways to make your porch pop this Spring.

1) Fresh Front Door

Make your entrance pop with a fresh coat of colour. Country Living magazine has their top 10 colour trends for doors, and boy are they bright! A cheerful statement for sure and one we don’t see slowing down any time soon.

Trying to find a colour that speaks to you? The DIY Network has 28 ideas for inviting doors.

2) A Porch Perch

If your front porch is big enough to accommodate a pair of comfortable outdoor chairs or small bench or sofa, make it happen. If you’ve never experienced the joy of reading on your porch watching the world go by, you won’t regret this discovery. Not only will you get to know your neighbourhood a little bit better, but you’ll also help your house say “come on in”. I mean, don’t you just want to meet the people who have these nice rockers on their porch? They seem like nice people.

3) It’s the Little Things

A fresh planter, fresh numbers on the house, a floral wreath, or vintage finds, small details make all the difference. Canadian blogger Laurie decorates her porch seasonally, adding personal touches and little details that make her porch uniquely welcoming.

The outdoor rug and small decorative birds make this porch pop.

Incredibly minimalist, yet the overflowing greenery from the planters is the small personal touch this porch needed to seem welcoming rather than cold.

This seaside-inspired porch would not have been complete without the seashells by the door.

We hope you’re inspired to make your porch pop this summer.
