Hit Refresh and Update Your Front Porch

Summer is an exceptionally wonderful time in Wisconsin. The terrain is lush and green. Whether you have Aspen, Birch, or Maple trees — your landscape is full of color. If you’d like to have your home looking as good as the blossoming trees, here are a few tips to refresh your front porch:

Add Color and Container Flowers

Greet your guests with vibrant colors and smells! Cultivate your front porch with a dash of color in the form of container gardens. Decorate the front porch with flowers and potted plants. Consider different sizes to create a cohesive centerpiece.

Refresh the Front Door

The front door is typically the focal point of the front porch. A freshly painted front door is an inviting entrance for your guests. Consider going bolder and brighter than years past. To create a unified look, paint the door the same color as your shutters.

Update Your Patio Furniture

Add a side chair or an accent table or go all out and add a new patio set. Add a chaise lounge with matching chairs and a table, turning your space into an area where you can unwind with a book or chat with friends.


Add lanterns or galvanized pails with candles in them on the path to greet guests as they come on to the porch. Visit flea markets and look for vintage toys such as old wagons, crates, or vintage signs. Flea market finds are always a charming touch.

Add an Outdoor Rug

Braided, contemporary, or traditional, an outdoor rug can brighten the space and make it feel inviting and cozy. It adds visual interest and anchors the porch.
