Boosting Curb Appeal through your Porch

Whether you’re planning to eventually sell your home, or you just want to make it look even more appealing, you should focus on improving its curb appeal. One essential element that could affect this is your front porch, so here are some tips that you can try out whenever you feel like it’s time for a little deck renovation.

A Clear Path

However you might want to set up your landscaping, always remember to keep the path clear from the street to your front porch. Some homeowners make the mistake of cluttering their yard with leafy barriers and garden accessories to the point that the pathway to the front door gets hidden. You can use hardscape techniques like putting up fences along the pathway, installing decorative outdoor pillars, or just paving over the path.


It’s an unspoken rule that every good front porch should always have some form of seating, even if it’s just a couple of garden chairs propped lazily between the interior and exterior of your home. What you project outside on your porch tends to reflect what others might find in the rest of your home.

Nature and Concrete

Yet another good tip is to offer a transition point between the plants in your garden yard and the hardscape of your front porch, and not just have them suddenly take each other’s place. This means you should incorporate some vegetation on your porch, preferably some potted plants or beautiful flowers.
