Enjoy the warmth of the season knowing your porch looks its best!

Summer is almost here! Be prepared for sunny days by giving your outdoor seating area an upgrade. Here are five inexpensive ways to take your porch to the next level. A lantern can simply make your space stylish. Place a block candle or a cute succulent in the interior for a layered effect. Get this decoration by your door from IKEA for $8.

Throw pillows bring comfort and color to your old outdoor furniture. These soft cushions will never be dull since they’re both fade- and weather-resistant. Use the pillows inside or out for just $10. Fairy lights are a cute way to add brightness without breaking the bank. These are made from copper wire and can be bent around any object.

A steel side table adds a vintage touch to your patio. The three-point pedestal base sturdily holds your cool drinks with ease. Installing drapes transforms your place instantly. The material can easily be installed with the help of a tension rod and is both mildew-resistant and water-repellent.
