 3 Elements of a Perfect Spring Porch

By Tali Wee of Zillow

As spring sunlight begins to brighten homes, residents are drawn to the outdoors. Spruce up the porch to create an ideal transition from beautiful countryside to chic abode.

Porches, decks and sunrooms are multipurpose – welcoming residents home, entertaining guests, enhancing curb appeal and providing the perfect reading nooks full of natural light. Porches staged with the following three characteristics suit any homeowner’s style and appeal to most house hunters on the market.

1. Highlight the Natural Scenery

Begin by creating a layout focused on natural surroundings, such as water views or expansive sunroom windows. Arrange the furniture in the direction of the natural focal point.

2. Provide Comfortable Seating

Make sure the furniture is both aesthetic and functional. Opt for comfortable, plush and inviting pieces. However, be careful not to crowd smaller spaces with oversized furniture.

3. Keep the Space Flawlessly Clean

Lastly, refresh the area with a deep spring-clean and regular maintenance. This eliminates some of the unpleasant aspects of nature such as bugs, critters, fallen leaves or mildew. Invest in weatherproof furniture and fabrics or protective slip covers for long-term luxury.
