Home is the loveliest place on the Earth. This is the place, which you not only call home but feel the utmost peace and clam in the entire world. If you feel like this about your home then, you must be motivated to create amazing mind-blowing decor into your place. Besides now that you are in form, you must be observing every minute detail and thinking of how you can decorate it in a welcoming manner? Well here are some of our thoughts that can ease-up your mind a little while planning your porch or outdoor entrance look.
Every one of us has a covered porch in front of our home, which means you can keep some things that would not be affected by the direct sunlight, rainwater, and snow. However, the open sides can cause trouble sometimes so you need to observe the weather conditions plan the decor.
You know how the saying goes the first impression is the last impression, well is true in some of the cases. Thus, be extra choosy while picking stuff for your home. A wooden floor is one of the most common porch flooring, it looks good, but if you can go for the rocky marble look. This comes out phenomenal. I mean you won’t imagine the after-effects of this look. So you can create a solid marble look or you can for the stone texture. It gives a little rustic and vintage look to the porch. Apart from that this will keep your floor steady and non-slippery during the rainy and snowy winter days.
It goes without saying how greenery can just enhance the look of the home, with its presence. Planting up some tree if you have some space around the corner can be done, or you can place some movable flower pots and grow beautiful daffodils, roses in them. They will enlighten you whenever you come back after a tour to your home. You can grow plants of your choice they were mere some suggestions. Now you have a covered porch so you can add some fences beginning through the polls to all the way. See growing plants is a slow process but the after result makes you feel a total Win, Win.
The important feature for your front porch is lighting, it’s important to place some lamps which are IP65 approved as this will protect them from the adverse weather effects and they will keep on running nicely. Now you can add similar lamps to both of the sides of the door, add a soothing dim light as too much brightness isn’t required all the time. Now, you feel like reading a book late at night and enjoy a nice herbal tea on that porch before you head towards bed then, you need to add a bright light to this area. You cannot carry a lamp along and you wouldn’t like to cause any harm to your eyes reading in dim light. So add multiple lights and use them as required.
Yes, it’s a must. You need to add a nice matt if you have a small garden in front of your home. You don’t want to make your home dirty by stepping inside with the shoes filled in mud during the rainy season. You can place a big rectangular rug and add on a matt to it so you will always dust your shoes before stepping in.
I made you imagine the reading scenario before, thus you can read sitting on the porch along the edge, but imagine if it’s raining or snowing and you want to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate during that time then, what’s the sitting plan? You obviously cannot sit on the floor as it is wet so you need some basic chairs in this area if you can adjust a coffee table that works well for all. Other than that you can place a swing in the corner and create a cozy, comforting swing corner.
