With the warm weather, and easy wind, the outdoor space will be a great place to spend with family and friends. So if you have the time and money for a home improvement, why not make a nice patio for the occasion?

At the porch of your house, turn your old outdoor furniture into a new look with spray paint. It is very easy, it comes in a lot of colors, and it finishes for about any kind of surface. If you are going to buy new furniture, look for the ones that can stand moisture and loads of sunlight. Make your porch look fabulous by adding colors in it. Get some colorful patterned fabrics for the pillows and the cushions. A weather-resistant outdoor rug could also lighten up the place.

Also, put some flowers and plantings on your porch. Put these flowers in large containers on the sides of your porch, and you could also add a watery touch on your porch for a fresh look by adding a little water fountain. Add shady plants such as hostas and caladiums around your porch, they will reduce the heat from the sun, or you could just use a canopy up above your porch.

Create some curves on your porch, because the look of them are more relaxing for the eyes than those look on straight lines. And don’t forget to add a touch of barbecue corner to enjoy a nice meal under the sun with your whole family and friends.
