Is your porch ready for summer? Get inspired by these fun ideas from House Beautiful!


Scatter Seating Areas
If you love to host parties and enjoy being outdoors, add multiple seating areas to your porch to get more use out of the space. You can add chairs with a small table, a porch swing, outdoor floor cushions, or patio furniture with an outdoor coffee table.

Screen It In
Live in an area with lots of bugs? Screen it in! This way you can enjoy your porch any time of the day.

Set up an Herb Garden
If you like cooking with fresh herbs, the porch is a perfect place for an herb garden. You can use flower pots of different colors and sizes that match the overall decor theme of your porch.
