Explore these 5 porch ideas for a summer-ready porch ready to make the best memories for a truly unforgettable summer season!
Afternoon naps are best done in the comfort of a hammock. Making you feel secure and comfortable with a gentle breeze swaying you softly, feel like a well-rested newborn babe after your siesta in a hammock conveniently placed by your back porch.
While a hammock may look appealing for a back porch, it might not be that attractive for a front porch. Instead of a porch swing, why not hang a porch swing for your front porch. Perfect for unwinding after a long day’s work or catching up with loved ones and friends, this porch feature will surely remind you to let loose and unwind from time to time.
Porches look inviting especially on calm, starry nights. However, the chill might prevent you from staying out for too long. With a fireplace by your feet or at a prime location, make your porch feel as warm any indoor room you have but with a greater view.
For those who want privacy, peace and quiet away from insects which buzz perpetually and disturb your porch stay, a screen does the job well. However, if you have pets which have the tendency to claw their way or scratch habitually, half-walled screens prevent a scratching disaster to your screens. You can also install a pet flap to let your pet come and go as they please.
Whether hanging or potted, plants give your porch a charming look. If you like an open porch, potted plants can serve as a great substitute for a screen in keeping insects far and away from your porch area. Try plant combinations like lavender and chamomile for a calming and insect-repellent effect!
