I have a large front porch and I need some ideas to revitalize it!

Lighting plays a key role in the decor, in addition to its practical function, it will allow you to enhance the layout of your front porch. Figure out the available space and install light fixtures of all kinds! For example, pendant lights create a vertically aesthetic decor while wall sconces perfectly frame and light up your door. Also, consider illuminating the path to your front porch!
An outdoor entrance rug and stair runner are charming yet practical: they add grip, help prevent dirt from being tracked into the house, and add texture as well as character to the front porch.
If you want to go above and beyond these staples, additional details can also be added to give your home’s front façade a facelift. Classic window mouldings, window planters, and contrasting shutters can do a great job of pulling together the look of your home.
For larger porches where the space is available to create a relaxing area, other elements, such as a porch swing or outdor seats, can be introduced into the mix. This creates additional seating while embellishing your decor.
It’s now up to you to have the most welcoming porch in the neighborhood!
