Add Pizzazz to a Small Porch


Smaller homes and newer built homes often come with little porches, but they can be beautiful, too. You can increase the curb appeal of a small front porch and even extend it to create more outdoor living space.
Our photos, porch designs, plans, decorating, and landscaping ideas will surely inspire you to create what Mary and I call "porch envy"!

    Our porch is more longer along the house but shorter towards the lawn. Any ideas?

      You could add some appealing wall art to your porch as well as set aside a portion for a conversation area with a colorful rug, small table with a lamp and chairs. If you google "decorating a long narrow porch" you will see pictures to give you some nice examples. Thank you for reading our article.
