6 Ways to Freshen Up Your Front Porch for Summer

Summer is the perfect time to bring a fresh look to homes in Frisco TX. It’s a time of year when we all want our homes to feel light, bright and airy inside and out. Help your home make a great first impression and create a relaxing space to hang out by refreshing your front porch with these tips.

Clean up

Start by taking everything off the porch. Sweep away cobwebs, dust and stray leaves. Use a power washer on a low setting to wash surfaces. Once it dries, your porch is ready to redecorate.


Apply a fresh coat of paint to any surfaces that need it. Pay special attention to wood railings, which may need repainting more often than other surfaces.

Add a rug

A new rug in summery colors will set the tone for your porch décor and define the seating area. Try bright tropical colors, classic blue and white or subtle sisal.

Install a Ceiling Fan

Your porch will be more comfortable on warm days and nights with a cool breeze from a fan. Ceiling fans add a touch of elegance to your porch. On high speed, a fan can also help chase away mosquitoes.

Upgrade Seating

Purchase new seating if your old pieces are past their prime. Or just replace the cushions for a new look. For variety, bring in a porch swing, hanging chair or rocking chair.

Accessorize with Plants

Whether you use potted houseplants, hanging baskets, ferns or container plantings, live greenery and flowers will literally make your porch come alive for summer. Be careful to note the amount of sun and water each plant needs and adjust accordingly.

These ideas can bring a fresh summer vibe to the front porch of your new home in Frisco TX. Landon Homes is building now in Hollyhock, Lexington Country, Edgestone at Legacy and The Grove Frisco.
