Are you bored with your porch’s current design? Luckily you don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars remodeling it. You can transform your porch’s appearance by adding small details. Take a look at these four small details you can incorporate into your porch that can make a major difference. 

1. Utilize Plants 

Adding pants to your porch is one way you can liven its look and feel. Even if you have a true garden, your porch will benefit from having some plants on it. They add colors and textures that are sure to improve curb appeal. You can get creative and save space by hanging small pots on a screen or using planter boxes on your railings. If you don’t want the responsibility of taking care of live plants, you can include fake plants on your porch. 


2. Reflect the Light

If you have a small porch, adding additional light can help make it feel bigger. You can incorporate mirrors into your porch design to reflect natural sunlight. Not only will it help give the illusion of a bigger space, but it will also help improve your mood as people visit your porch. Mirrors are also unexpected outdoors, so it will be a great statement piece for your porch. 


3. Add a Pop of Color

Paint doesn’t take up any room, so it’s a great detail to try for small porches. You can try painting patterns on the floor of your porch or add a bright color to the ceiling. A light blue color can mimic the sky and therefore make the space feel more open. You can also use paint to add your personality to your porch. No matter how you choose to paint your porch, be sure to keep the color light to avoid making it feel closed in. 


4. Add Statement Pieces 

If you want to maximize your porch space while still making a statement, you can have a porch builder in Annapolis build small statement pieces onto your porch. A built-in bench that doubles as a table can help save space. Also consider adding a screen to hide unsightly items, an ottoman that can store items, or columns that enhance the look of your porch.
