Front Porch Curtain Ideas We Love for Every Southern Home
If you've never considered adding curtains to your front porch, we're here to share inspiration as to why you may should consider adding them to your porch. Whether you have a wraparound porch, a small porch, a screened porch, or an open porch, there is a style of curtain on this list that will fit any style. Not only do curtains add a nice visual element to porches and serve as a way to express your personal design taste, but they can also help add privacy as well as shade from the sun to keep the temperature on your porch cooler during warmer weather.
Below, we're sharing some of our favorite front porches with curtains. Plus, the curtains we love that are on the market now that you can buy to recreate these looks on your own front porch. Since curtains will be exposed to the elements, it's important to choose a curtain that was made specifically for use outdoors so it can withstand the weather it may be exposed to. We also love machine washable options so you can easily clean them if needed.
Make a Statement
In the front porch pictured above, designer Heather Chadduck Hillegas used curtains to add privacy, coziness, and a touch of drama to the front of a Florida home. Keeping in theme with the blue and white colors throughout the home, she chose to use Perennials' Vintage Stripe fabric in Lagoon for the curtains.
Frame a Swing
Floor to ceiling curtains surround the hanging swing on this screened porch. They can be left open to provide a nice frame for the swing or can be closed to provide a break in the rays that come from the sun.
Create an Outdoor Room
Having curtains in each corner of this porch helps create a defined outdoor room. The curtains can remain open to allow light into the space or be closed to create the "walls" and keep out the heat on warmer days.
