Spring is in the air and that can only mean one thing - warm weather! Enjoy the outdoors by designing a functional outdoor living space your friends and family will enjoy all summer long!
Enhance your curb appeal
Rule #1 - Keep your maintenance up! Pull any dead flowers, dust and dirt off of your porch. Your front porch survived a tough Ontario winter and deserves that spring makeover!
Rule #2 – Decorate! Decorating your front porch is an easy project that improves the exterior look of your entire home. A decorative porch serves as a great focal point and is a helpful way to navigate your guests to the front door. Make a strong first impression and add some fresh spring decor to the front of your home!
Must have seasonal porch decorations
Outdoor Furniture: Add a simple seating arrangement to create a continuous flow from the outside to the inside of your home.
Step 1: Pick two large patio chairs that complement your interior design or fit the colour scheme of your doors and siding. A great tip to follow when purchasing patio chairs is to look for water resistant material. This will allow you to keep your chairs outside without having to worry about the weather!
Step 2: Add an outdoor coffee table in the middle of the chairs (preferably in a neutral colour).
Step 3: Place outdoor pillows on the chairs. Your pillows should add a ‘pop’ of colour and intensify your design.
Flowers: Whether you choose a hanging basket display or a classic flowerpot, brighten up your porch with a colourful arrangement of flowers. Flowers are always an effective way to fill up space and tie together a basic design. Make your porch feel cozy by adding some flower displays!
Outdoor lighting: Whether it's a few simple candles or porch lanterns, good lighting is ideal for relaxing outside when night falls! Outdoor lighting comes in a wide variety of shapes and will add dimension to the space.
Designing a new space (especially outside) may feel like a daunting task! The important thing to remember is to HAVE FUN! Put aside your fears and tune into your inner designer! Be confident in the choices you make and be proud of your home! It’s time to stop hiding and show off your chic style this spring!
