Are you inspired yet? Our favorite themes from the photos are the warm wood tones, the lighting fixtures, and the furniture. These are aspects that you also find indoors and are what can make outdoor spaces so inviting. Problems are bound to arise eventually when you're dealing with the outdoors. Nature can really cause some wear and tear. One great thing about Mohawk products is that they're also good at fixing up a few things outside. Here's some of our favorite ways to refresh outdoor spaces and how to keep them looking new. 

Incorporating metal into your design provides a nice contrast to wood and stone. However, after time metals can lose their shine leaving you with lack luster curb appeal. To bring life back to your metal accents, spray on some Brass Lacquer to prevent tarnishing and aging.

Another great way to update your entry is to refinish your front door. There's no need to go out and buy a new one, save your self the money. Invest some time in restaining your door, giving your house a whole new look. Or if you want to stick with your current shade, look into doing a few small wood repairs in the places that need it most to make your home look brand new again. 



Furniture adds the final coziness factor that all front porches crave. Make your home look welcoming by adding a bench, chair, or table to turn your outdoor space into another sitting area. Don't be hesitant about putting good furniture outside, there's always a way to touch up any flaws that might appear over time.
