5 enchanting porch ideas for summer 1


Distance Matters

One of the simplest porch ideas, to begin with, is scattering the placement of seating and other furniture. We need more room to breathe during hot days in summer, so scattering the furniture will give us that ‘room’. Putting small plants on the porch will help if you feel the scattering leaves too much room

Add a Little Bit of Swing

Try adding porch swings. Let them hang on sitting areas or one of the porch’s sides and enjoy a gentle sway of summer wind. Porch swings do not only add comfort to the porch but can also make your porch stands out. Try to put additional outdoor cushions around the swing or table if the porch swings are in the sitting area.

Let Nature Be the Focus

If you want nature to be the center of attention on your porch, you can try the natural porch ideas. Use furniture that exposes the raw texture of the wood and be minimal with the design. 

Also, don’t use too much furniture, as we don’t want the furniture to get in our vision path. You can add small decorations such as rug and wall decorations made of natural material to spice up your nature-focused porch.

Be Different and Creative

Want to try something different with our porch during summer? Try the bohemian porch ideas. Try to mix and match different outdoor furniture, the colors and shapes don’t matter as long as they look nice sitting together. To bind those different elements into one cohesive theme, we can try to add a similar color accent to those elements.
