12 Ways (+1) to Refresh Your Porch


If your home has a front porch, it’s guaranteed to be the first thing visitors see when approaching your home — and we all know what they say about first impressions.

If your porch is inviting, comfortable-looking and in good repair, it sends a positive message about your house. And if you’re ever in the market to sell, your porch is a critical element in curb appeal, which is one of the most important factors in attracting potential buyers.

Here are 12 easy ways to refresh your porch, from MSN Living. Among them:

  • Keep it neat and trim
  • Install a porch swing
  • Add some flowers

And we’ve got one suggestion of our own to add: if your windows are tired and drab, look into replacing them with quality windows, Built around you by Marvin. The respected Cost-Value Survey by Remodeling magazine shows that quality replacement windows return about 79 percent of their cost if you ever sell your house.
