Are you as excited about your porch as we are? We’d like to think so! Having a porch attached to your home can be an exhilarating experience because it can quickly become your favorite place to be in your home!
This is because people naturally feel relaxed, comfortable, and less stressed when they are amongst nature and are breathing in fresh air. However, it is important that you effectively adorn your porch in order to further promote your comfort and overall enjoyment of this space.
That’s where we come in at Four Oak Bed Swings. We proudly handcraft stunning hanging daybed porch swings of varying styles, sizes, designs, and other features. We know that your porch is one of the most important places in your home, so we want you to be your coziest and happiest while there.
Having a daybed porch swing is one of the best ways of properly adorning your porch, as it creates a unique aesthetic and practical element to the space. Plus, it provides an inviting aspect to your porch for not only you and your family but also any guests.
If you already have your daybed porch swing or are planning on getting one, you may be wondering, “What else can I do to decorate my porch?” Not to worry: we can help you there as well. Let’s look at some great decoration ideas for your porch.
There is room for more furniture on your porch besides the daybed swing. When you are adding other pieces of furniture, though, you would be remiss to exclude a coffee table or other such table for practical purposes.
A coffee table or even just a small table allows a place for those on the porch to place their books, coffee cups, wine glasses, and other such objects while relaxing and enjoying the ambiance. Plus, it furthers the look of your porch!
You should have a place for guests or even yourself to sit aside from the daybed. This is because it gives you options for sitting, allows for more people to join in on the fun, and adds more aesthetic value to your porch.
That is where the rocking chair comes in. A rocking chair is a classic porch piece--and it’s no real surprise as to why. It allows you to comfortably sit and rock while watching the world go by.
Floor and/or Hanging Plants
What is an outdoor space without some outdoor accents? Adding plants to your porch will undoubtedly bring the best out of it in terms of aesthetics and relaxation. Another added advantage of using plants as decorations is that the possibilities are endless here!
You can have hanging plants from the ceiling or even on your wall. You could have tall, medium, or short plants. Flowers are never a nuisance either! You can also try combinations of all of these options, like having a ficus in the company of daisies and succulent plants. You could even place the smaller plants on little benches to add depth to your plant collection!
When certain holidays and seasons roll around, adding little pieces of these on your porch is always a great option. For fall, you could add pumpkins, real or fake. For the winter holiday seasons, you could add small Christmas trees, a menorah, or other such popular decorations.
You could also add a seasonally appropriate wreath to your front door. You can really have a lot of fun with seasonal decorations!
Speaking of the front door, why not try adding a specific sign to its facade? This could be made seasonal as well or could be something that you have available year-round. It could say something as simple as “welcome,” or could have your family’s last name on it with a welcoming phrase!
Another added advantage of this option is that you could simply pick a sign up at a store or you could design and create one yourself.
No porch is complete without a welcome mat. It may seem like an obvious part of any porch, but it still deserves a mention. Not only is a welcome mat a functional piece as it allows you and guests to efficiently clean your footwear. But, it also adds an inviting element to your porch as well.
There are a plethora of welcome mats available with varying slogans, from classic “welcome” signs to comical ones, such as “we are probably pretending not to be home.”
When you are looking to create a really calming and alluring ambiance on your porch, the addition of hanging lights will be able to sufficiently accomplish that desire. Hanging string lights nearly anywhere on your porch will be an astounding element, especially for those evenings you desire to sit outside.
There is no bad place to hang your string lights, either, as their imperfection in hanging is one of their biggest draws. You can place them over your daybed porch swing, over and around your front door, along the ceiling or railings, amongst your plants-- you cannot go wrong with string lights!
Wall Accent Decoration
It’s common for a porch to have an open wall that seems to be missing something. Why not throw some sort of wall decoration on it? This could be a wide variety of pieces, like a large clock, abstract decoration, signs, framed pictures, or other similar choices.
You could also add a painting, so long as your porch is enclosed and it won’t get potentially ruined by the elements. Another potential addition could be a large, rectangular potted plant that then grows vines up the wall.
Once you have the vital daybed porch swing on your porch, it can then be a fun experience to finish decorating the rest of your porch to best symbolize and display your personality and style. Plus, it will make your porch experience far more enjoyable and inviting to anyone who lives in your home or stops by!
