Now that summer is in full swing, you deserve to sit back and relax – and what better place to take a breather, than on your front porch! Enjoy the comfort of your home and the outdoors right from the front steps of where you live. We get it –the quarantine had you busy with DIY projects and fixing up areas inside your home, but WallPops has your next project lined up! Let’s walk you through how to give your porch the ultimate face lift with a farmhouse twist!

Being the first impression of your home, your front porch should not be neglected. To have suburb curbside appeal, take a look at our five steps to transforming your woefully neglected porch to have a dreamy “staycation” feel.

Organize

If you’ve been letting your Amazon packages pile up (we can’t imagine why you would), or simply have been using your porch as a storage space for scraps, it’s time to declutter. Salvage whatever furniture you can find under the accumulated clutter, and we’ll explain later how you can transform their surfaces to appear more modern/brand new. Once you organize your porch, onward we go!

Refresh

Whether you have floorboards that need mending, or simply want to stain your wood planks for an updated look, the next step in your refresh process just involves a little paint. It’s a simple yet overlooked method of completely transforming the look of your porch. If your floors and balcony are still in good shape, take a page out of Gladys’ book and give your door a refreshing new shade! To stay with the farmhouse style, we’d recommend painting your door a pop of color to complement your neutral décor or choose black for a sleek and elevated look.

Shine

Outdoor twinkly lights are all the rage right now (we are seriously crushing on Anna’s porch)! Get the look on your home front with our sparkly rose gold string lights – these battery operated string lights would be perfect to hang (flushed against the siding of your covered porch) to add a fairy-tale feel to your freshly cleaned porch. The illumination will allow for later gatherings with our friends and not to mention, once the sun sets, your porch will be the coolest looking house on the block!

The cherry on top for your porch makeover lies in the greenery.

It truly is the last step to completing the look of your newly refreshed space. Lively greens will add a pop of color and effortlessly tie in your neutral décor in a modern and fresh way.
