Summertime calls for spending long afternoons on the front porch. A wrap around porch is your best friend after long sunny days at the beach. Refresh your porch this Summer with a few key accent pieces and turn it into a place in which you can relax and unwind. The perfect place to sip a glass of wine in the evening or a cup of coffee in the morning, here are our KF tips for ultimate front porch style.
The most important element to your wrap around porch is the seating. Comfortable seating is a must, especially for spending luxe summer days lounging and napping. Not only is comfort a main priority, but so is additional seating. Having various areas to sit and enjoy is important when having friends and family over to visit.
