This is the perfect time of year for enjoying outdoor living spaces and front porches can be just theÂ spot for Â socializing with friends and neighbors or just relaxing quietly and enjoying the sights and sounds of nature.
What can you do to make your front porch extra-inviting this year?
Arrange a mixtureÂ of seating choices, including colorful pillows, on your porch along with a table to set things onÂ so that you and your guests haveÂ a place to set down your cold beverage, book, or cell phone. Live plants are also a niceÂ touch and so many varieties can live happily and carefree on a porchÂ almost year-round here in Â N.C.Â An old-fashioned porch swing is always a fabulous, fun touch.
Dining tables, colorful rugs, and even curtains are popular additions to porches that can expand their use and turn a porchÂ into another room of your house, one that is heated and cooled naturally.
