Front Porch Living

Remember the good ‘ole days when people sat on the front porch (instead of the back deck) and saw their neighbors, had short conversations, or invited them to sit a spell? At Cornerstone Homes, we believe that when people are connected, they are happier. And happier means healthier.  And through social gatherings on front porches or along the sidewalks, you will find an increased sense of belonging and a spirit of fun in every 55+ community in VA. One thing is for sure, front porches connect neighbors!

And our homeowners sure know how to have fun and decorate their front porches. Come on out and take a drive through Chickahominy Falls in Hanover County, The Grove at Lucks Lane in Midlothian, The Cove at Magnolia Lakes in Chester, or Barley Woods in Fredericksburg.  You’ll see some welcoming porch décor and welcoming neighbors that would love to chat with you.  We have such a unique lifestyle that lives here and in all our communities. One that is built with play and purpose in mind. 

Here are some decorating ideas to spruce up your front porch to make your entry more inviting. We believe it is important to make a great first impression by creating a welcoming  front porch for your guests.  

So whether you're curling up with a book or chatting with neighbors, your front porch can be a valuable extension of your living space, so do it up!

How to Decorate Your Front Porch

Add a Rug. An outdoor area rug grounds the space and lets everyone know this is a spot you can kick off your shoes and recharge.

Comfortable Seating. Make sure there's a spot for at least two people to sit comfortably. 

Accent Table for a pitcher of lemonade. 

Accessories to show your personal style. 

Potted Plants to add warmth.

Lighting like a lamp, string lights or candles.

We love our porches and our happy homeowners. In all our active adult communities in Virginia, the fun is cultivated from the ground up! Connecting with neighbors and enjoying life is what it is all about. It’s time to come full circle and sit a spell with a glass of lemonade and create new friendships and a new carefree lifestyle in a Cornerstone Home Community.  Call today to jump start your journey to this exciting lifestyle and take a stroll through the neighborhood.  (804-215-0766)
