Your Front Porch is the first introduction to your home.

Front Porch Design Ideas
Neat and Tidy
Before adding a stylish theme to your porch, you need to pay attention to basics, such as essential cleaning, repairs, and painting any chipped boards or peels. Your porch won’t look great if the paint is peeling off the trim or there are spider webs extending overhead. Power wash the entire porch area to clean it from dust, leaves, spiderwebs, and the likes. You also need to declutter it. Any unnecessary items like old toys, sports equipment, shoes, etc. should be tucked away leaving the space neat and clean. If the trim around the porch is chipped or looks tired, spruce it up with a layer of new paint.
Front Porch Furniture
You don’t have to set an entire parlor out on your front porch, yet if you have enough space, make a little sitting area where you can unwind and appreciate the view. Comfy wing chairs or armchairs make for great furniture pieces for porches. You can also set out a lightweight sofa to enjoy with a companion. If you are leaning towards sturdier seats, you can opt for a simple Adirondack-style seat, or use a conventional straight back seat that won’t take up much space. Set a little complimentary table to hold a glass of lemonade or a plate of treats. Position your furniture far from the edge of the porch for safety reasons.
Front Porch Plants
Even a small Front Porch would have enough space for an urn adorned with brilliant blossoms. Before deciding to have a small nursery, you might want to consider the amount of sun your porch gets. Is it mostly under shade, or generally sunny and bright, or somewhere in between? Pick blooms that flourish in that level of sunlight. You can fill a corner with three pots of various sizes, or adorn it with one huge jar overflowing with greenery. If your porch has a shady area, you might want to add an additional touch of bloom with overhanging wicker bins loaded with blossoms. Use pots of blooms to define the edges of the porch so that guests don’t accidentally miss a step and take a plunge.
