Easy Ways to Create the Perfect Summer Porch

May 15, 2022

If you’re searching for a new home and a front porch that you can decorate for the seasons, then make sure you turn to Erickson Realty. Our real estate agents in Columbus GA can help you find that perfect porch and home. One you’ve moved in, here are some ideas for a great summer porch with style.

You don’t necessarily have to do a lot to make your front porch pop. A few key elements involving color and texture really make a difference. For example, instead of the traditional wreath on the door, consider a natural-fiber basket and an attractive wreath holder or hook to hold it, and fill the basket with silk flowers, such as tulips for spring or sunflowers for summer, or whatever combination makes you happy. You could also actually paint your front door, especially if the rest of your home exterior is fairly neutral. Consider a pop of color that will work year round and give your home some extra personality.

Adding colorful plants to your front porch is an easy way to add a summery touch, but don’t forget the planters. Look for planters that may have some color of their own to complement the flowers and also work for adding a touch of color during other seasons when you may have plants that are mainly greenery. Depending on the size, you could always do a mix of draping greenery along the edges with taller colorful plants in the center. Decorative stakes with colored-glass butterflies and or some other decoration add some whimsy to your planter displays.

If your porch is big enough for seating, consider new covers for your cushions. You can go with a bold, tropical print and color or choose a softer neutral – robin’s egg blue, for example – and then use bolder, brighter prints for decorative throw pillows. If you have room for a table, pick up some colorful summer coasters that complement your color scheme, and maybe pick up an eye-catching small planter for the table top and use it for a collection of succulents.

These basics will go a long way to adding color and style to your front porch. You can also choose a seasonal door mat, and add some hanging elements, ranging from wind chimes to potted plants – and consider some macrame holders for added texture and style!

Think about what summer means to you, both in colors and textures, and consider adding some of those ideas to create your personal summer front porch. To find that porch that is perfect for decorating, turn to the Erickson Realty real estate agents in Columbus GA. We’re here to help you realize your dreams.
