Porch decorating ideas are probably not the first thing you start when decorating your home. But they’re the first thing you’ll see when you come back to it. And with glorious sunny days almost here, it’s time to give them a refresh. Getting your stop right means a place to relax, to catch up on the day, to welcome friends and neighbors with a glass of iced tea. A place to sit, watch the sun rise or set, is what summer is all about.
When it comes to porch, garden, or backyard ideas, there’s a lot you can do to make these outdoor spaces the heart of your home. After all, the outdoors greatly contributes to your mental health. It is important to give them all the love and turn them into social spaces where you and your loved ones can spend time.
“A great porch starts with laying out how you envision using the space and creating ‘rooms’ with their own functionality and purpose,” say interior designers Kate Anne and Ryan Gross, founders of Kate Anne Designs.
