Where to Start With Porch Remodeling

Who doesn’t love porches? These outdoor spaces are a great addition to any home. Porch remodeling is a great way to revamp the existing space you already know and love. In this article, we are going to discuss some of the different ways you can remodel your existing porch.

About Porch Remodeling

With your existing porch, one of the first things you will need to do is completely clear it off to see what space you are actually working with. Any tables, chairs, potted plants, lights, and so on will need to be removed and set aside to begin.

First, Get Cleaning

After everything has been removed from the porch, it’s time to clean. Start by dusting what you can. You may want to wear a mask if it’s been a while. After dusting, sweep your porch with a broom. You can use a vacuum to help clean up the remaining debris. Remove any screens that are on windows, and wash them as well as the walls and floors with warm, soapy water. 

New Coat of Paint

Now that your porch is clean, take a look around. Does it look a little too boring? Do you want to brighten it up with some bold colors? Or, if it’s too bright, tone it down with a neutral palette. Consider picking a spot to try some test colors.

Bring It All Together

After the new paint is on and dry, take a look at the furniture you once had on the porch. Does it still fit? If the budget allows it, donate what you can, and replace what you want. Now is the time to get what you want! Additional touches to consider would be AC for enclosed porches, and lights for all styles! Who doesn’t love evening lights?
