  • All the right accessories. What you put on your porch is just as important as the color palette and the detail. If you are fond of furniture adorning your front patio, it’s important to ensure you have the right furniture. You can adorn your patio furniture with curtains that provide a gorgeous pop of color. Or, for even more design, you can add a lovely artistic canvas. Hanging above your furniture, you can almost create a second living room. Also, a rug can add a wonderful sense of comfort, especially for those days that you would rather go barefoot.

  • Give your door a face lift. Your door has likely become so ordinary, that you may not even remember the details until you look. You can draw eyes to your front door with a brand-new coat of paint. Whether you keep the same color or go bold with a new hue that complements your home, you can certainly bring a fresh look to your front porch with a simple coat of paint. Consider red for a welcoming color, or even yellow, to add a bright and cheery ambience.

  • The details tie it together. There are details that you may not have even considered yet, such as your door knocker or house numbers. These are details that every guest will see when they arrive, and will likely be looking for. You can give them something lively to look at. Replacing your numbers with fresh new ones, possibly in a new style, will help add a new feel to your porch. This is also true with your door knocker, as every guest will see it. These details help to tie the entire style of your front porch together.

Your front porch is not only a comfortable spot for you to enjoy the warm weather this season, but also a way to welcome your guests to your home. These are a few ways in which you can add a fresh new style to your front porch. Here at White Oak Interiors, we want to help you create your ideal style for your home.

  • Incorporate a little texture. Sometimes, your home may seem too uniform or austere. From cream colored walls to white ceilings, it can feel as if your home doesn’t have enough pizzazz to keep up with your own personal style. Don’t be afraid to spice up spaces within your home with the right décor, such as hand-painted wallpapers, layered tablescapes, and décor that will provide a flair within your rooms. Your home doesn’t have to fit in with every home in your neighborhood. Uniqueness is an endearing trait. Most importantly, don’t be scared to utilize elements of décor that are rarely seen, as you can create a combination that will certainly “wow” your guests.

Decorating your home is such a wonderful opportunity to make your living space everything you have ever wanted.
