Use Unique Porch Lettering and Signage

Lettering and signage have been hugely popular decorations for homes, both for the interior and exterior, for years and they remain one of the top trends for porches this year. In addition to being unique and beautiful, lettering and signage are also among the easiest and low-maintenance ways to decorate your Bluffton porch enclosure. Scour local antique stores or flea markets to find interesting signs, or paint your own!

Create a Rustic Planting Station

When it comes to decorating screened-in porches, potted plants and flowers are among the most common items homeowners choose. This year, try arranging your greenery in a charming planting station. Save space by using a painter’s ladder to arrange potted plants on each rung, of if your have a bit more space or a corner that looks particularly empty, you can use a grocer’s trolley, utility cart, or bar cart as a unique planting station. Add other decor pieces to complete your personal planting station. 

Hang Lanterns for Lighting with Character

Lighting is necessary if you plan on spending evenings on your porch during the warmer months and in 2018, vintage style lanterns are the way to go. You can mount them from the wall or add them to the decor for your planting stations. For a cozy look, simply place some lanterns near your seating area to create a charming and inviting space. 

The most important thing to remember when following decorating trends is to make it your own. Create a one-of-a-kind porch by choosing decor pieces and trends that attract and inspire you.
