Perk up your porch!

Whether you're curling up with a book or chatting with neighbours, your front porch can be a valuable extension of your living space, so do it up right.

Update older seating with a fresh hammock chair.

Keep it casual and kid-friendly with a few colourful floor cushions.

A small lamp comes in handy after the sun goes down and adds a warm glow, as well.

Group together a few plants in varying heights and textures. Just make sure they're suited for the porch's exposure to sunlight.

An outdoor area rug grounds the space and lets everyone know this is a spot you can kick off your shoes and recharge.

When choosing how to decorate your porch, don’t forget to add the element of sound in the way of wind chimes.
