The sun is shining and summer is here! For many homeowners in Kensington, MD, that means it’s time to enjoy the front porch during all hours of the day. However, if you want a few summery updates to your porch before sitting down to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of lemonade, here are a few ideas.
Paint Outdoor Furniture
Even inexperienced home painters can paint outdoor porch furniture. All you need is a can of spray paint and a little bit of time. Spray paint is the perfect way to provide a quick, easy, thorough painting update to your front porch. Be bold with a bright red or sunny yellow; it’s the fastest way to bring some summer cheer to your home’s exterior.
Paint Your Front Door
While your front door is a functional part of your home, it can also create a very specific aesthetic. For an elegant look, paint charcoal gray or creamy linen. If you want a cozier exterior painting appearance for your door, head for sage green or navy blue. You’ll be amazed at the transformation a door color can bring to your home.
Add Color to Flowerpots
Flowerpots are often sold in the typical terracotta color, which is a natural tone, but not exactly a showstopper. If you’ve been craving more color on your front porch, why not paint your flowerpots? It’s an easy way for home painters to add zest to the front porch without spending too much money, time, or effort. It will give a whole new effect to your home without re-doing the entire exterior painting of your house.
Paint Lighting Fixtures
Most homes in Bethesda, MD have lighting fixtures on their front porch. While it’s a small detail, painting your lighting fixtures can actually bring a whole new light to your home. Update your old brass fixtures with a neutral gray or black, or add sophistication with bright white. This update is house painting without the stress – which is the best kind!
