At The Porch Company, where every season is “porch season,” autumn is an extra-special time of year. After a sultry Nashville summer, the crisp air and playful breezes of fall are most refreshing on a screened porch. Can you feel the season calling you outdoors? There is no better place to enjoy this time of year than on a new porch custom designed for you by The Porch Company

Would you use your new porch for relaxing, or entertaining outdoors – or both? Whether you enjoy your solitude or a large group of friends – or both – a porch gives you the perfect setting for your favorite activities. Incorporate an outdoor kitchen so you won’t have to leave your guests in another room while you prepare a festive meal. Add an outdoor fireplace for romantic ambiance where you can spend hours gazing into the hypnotic flames. Include space on your porch for lounging with books, watching TV, and working on jigsaw puzzles to your heart’s content.
A screened porch is especially nice in the fall because those screens will keep the constant barrage of falling leaves and other debris at bay.
When decorating your home in the fall, you can start with Halloween and move right on through to Thanksgiving and Christmas. Decorating an outdoor room like a screened porch gives your creativity an additional dimension. The landscaping around your porch – especially if you incorporate large planters – becomes part of your décor! It’s not difficult to coordinate seasonal décor inside and outside with brilliant chrysanthemums on both sides of the screens. Bright orange pumpkins and spooky jack-o-lanterns can give way to harvest-themed décor for Thanksgiving and festive lights at Christmastime. For inspiration, take a look at how one Nashville Porch Offers Splashes of Seasonal Color, Indoors and Out.

When updating your screened porch, no matter the season, a new door is just the beginning. Selecting a new porch railing is the most dramatic way you can give your porch a new sense of style. If you haven’t seen the beautiful, unique panels we’ve designed for railing infill, you may be wondering what could be so dramatic about a porch railing. You are in for a surprise!
Many homes that have a porch also have a gate or two, so while you are sprucing up your porch, let’s look at your gate. How long have you had the same gate, and how well is it holding up? In the PorchCo online store, we have several low-maintenance gates made of sturdy PVC – and they are made to last. The solid cellular PVC we use to make our gates is more durable than wood. Another wonderful characteristic of these gates is that they take paint beautifully.
If the arrival of fall reminds you how much you enjoy your outdoor fireplace, let’s talk about fireplace mantels. Don’t underestimate the power of your mantel as a focal point on your porch. We have three mantel styles – circle sawn pine, hand-hewn pine, or cypress with a smooth finish. The circle sawn and hand-hewn mantels are slightly distressed for texture, while the smooth mantel is planed and sanded. What these amazing mantels have in common are their hollow insides where you can hide wiring for your electronics. They are as practical as they are beautiful!
Whether you want to nap or curl up with a good book, there is no better place than a PorchCo bed swing on your porch. If you don’t have a porch, you need one just so you will have a place for one of these amazing bed swings. We make them in several styles – wood or solid cellular PVC, rustic or sleek, stained or painted to match your mattress cover and throw pillows. We feel sure you’ll agree, Porch Store Bed Swings Provide the Ultimate Porch Relaxation Experience!
