How to Create a Fun Front Porch for Your Home

Your front porch is the welcome mat of your homeYour front porch is the first impression your home makes on your guests – – make sure it is a good one!

Your front porch is your home’s first impression. Of course, you want your front porch to give your guests a warm welcome. Palm Harbor Homes has several manufactured and modular homes with spacious front porches that will give you the perfect blank canvas to create your own look, style, and feel. Here are a few fun and creative ways that you can create a welcoming front porch.

Lighting Is Everything

When your porch is dark, it gives the illusion that it is smaller than it really is. Installing a few meticulously placed porch lights can instantly brighten and expand your porch space. A weatherproof lamp placed on a side table can also create a cozy vibe while you enjoy the fresh air.

Invest in Quality Seating

Many people skimp on their outdoor seating arrangements. While it is outdoors and therefore you need something a bit heartier to withstand the elements, there are many durable and comfortable furniture options on the market today. If you are on a tight budget, consider some classic rocking chairs. They are best paired with ice-cold sun tea on a warm summer night.

Add Custom Touches

You want your home to be unique like yourself. You can do this by customizing certain key aspects of your porch. For example, make some custom-made house numbers that reflect the style of your home. You can also order custom welcome mats that you can have printed with a family photo or text of your choice. A few pieces of creative décor can really turn your porch from dud to designer.

Holiday Spirit

Make sure to have a few key holiday decorations that you can put out throughout the year. When visitors arrive, your porch can set the tone for your entire house. Having your porch decked out can really make your entire home seem much more festive!
