Now that summer is in full swing, chances are you're spending plenty of time outside on your front porch enjoying the warm weather and sunshine with a good book or cool glass of lemonade. While these exterior areas of the home don't need to be over furnished or decorated, a few design touch ups can take the basic wood design to the next level. Here are a few tips to keep in mind to create a warm and welcoming front porch.

Outdoor seating
Whether you use your porch to watch your children play outside during summer vacation, as a quiet reading spot or a place to catch up with neighborhood friends, seating is an important part of the aesthetic. Consider arranging a few wicker sofas or rocking chairs in the corner so your porch will become the go-to social area of your home.

Details
By introducing a few decorative details around your porch, you'll create just the right amount of visual interest without going overboard. For instance, an exterior area rug or outdoor blinds and shades can bring a variety of colors and patterns to your porch that emphasize the warm aesthetic of your wood boards. Similarly, a few potted plants placed around the area will bring sweet aromas and natural appeal to the entryway.

Lighting
If you enjoy sitting out on your porch on a comfortable summer evening, then you'll be sure to appreciate the decorative and functional aspects of new outdoor lighting fixtures. Not only will you have plenty of illumination to enjoy summer cocktails with your friends, but you can select intriguing fixture designs that enhance the look of your home's exterior.
