A front porch comes with big opportunities to maximize space, comfort, and curb appeal. [MUSIC] Boost a basic porch railing with an eye catching design. A geometric motif adds instant charm. Give an outdoor room indoor personality by painting the floor to look like a colorful rug. [MUSIC] A stencil is a quick and affordable way to create a custom look. Use furniture to maximize square footage. A porch swing seats one to three people, and a garden stool can be called into service as an extra seat or a side table. A small space lends itself to simple storage add-ons. Add an acrylic bin to the side of a porch swing to store reading materials. Try topping a shipping pallet with plexiglass to create a sturdy landing zone for drinks and decor. Even with a small front porch, you can still live large in your outdoor room.
