An inviting porch that is both functional and stylish is what millions of people dream of every year. Porches can be used for virtually anything. The possibilities are endless. Whether you’re looking to enhance a porch that is spacious or small, there are plenty of ways to design the ideal porch.

Create a Conversation Station 

When warm weather comes around, most people want to spend more time outdoors. When guests come over, your porch can be used as a space to mingle. Incorporate chairs, sofas, and benches in a way that encourages conversation. This is often done by arranging the furniture in small groupings and placing, in the center, a coffee table or ottoman that can hold food, refreshments, or your favorite book. 

 

Create a Staycation

Who wouldn’t want to feel like they’re on vacation every time they step onto their porch? Turn your porch into a miniature retreat by building a bar, a day bed, a hammock, or anything else that makes you feel like you’re on a relaxing vacation. To help create this aesthetic, paint your porch using bright, tropical colors. Bright colors instantly boost your mood and make you feel like you’re in the middle of the Caribbean. 

 

Enclose it

Do you love being outside but are not fond of everything that can be found outdoors? There’s a solution. Try enclosing your porch. An enclosed porch allows you to feel like you’re outdoors, but without having to worry about bugs, insects, the elements, and other things that can make relaxing outdoors hard to do. When you close your porch, you create an entirely new space that can be used for nearly anything.

 

Paint it

Sometimes all your porch needs is a new paint job. A fresh coat of paint can bring a boring, dingy old porch back to life. There are plenty of ways you can repaint your porch. Will you match it to the rest of your home? Or, will you paint it something completely different? If you want to create a functional, modern-looking porch, stick to neutral colors like white and brown. For a functional porch that stands out, incorporate bright colors like blue or green.
