Make an Entrance with These Front Porch Décor Ideas

The front porch is first impression your home makes on the rest of the world. Add some spice to your space this season with these style tips.

Create Major Curb Appeal with Eye Catching Flowers

Flowers are a fun way to add some color to your home’s exterior. Even during the fall and winter months seasonal blooms and shrubs can add some life  to a plain front porch. Some popular choices for fall flowers include Asters, Pansies, Chrysanthemums, and Crotons.

Make Space for Seating

There’s nothing better than spending quiet mornings or evening moment sitting on your front porch and watching the world go by. Transform your entrance into a cozy place to enjoy a cup of coffee or the company of a good friend by adding some seating. If you have enough room, a porch swing is a great addition to any home but if not, a couple of cafe chairs and table work just as well.

 

Brighten Up with Lanterns and Lights

Light the entryway with twinkling lights or chic lanterns. Not only are these practical enhancements that make your front porch safer and easier to navigate at night but these little touches allow you to enjoy your space even after the sun sets. Try draping solar powered cafe lights or staging lanterns around your front door for a fun and illuminating look.

 

Decorate Your Door with a Festive Wreath

Celebrate the season with a festive wreath. These traditional adornments aren’t just for Christmas anymore. Wreaths can be made to match the aesthetic of any season, holiday, or style to welcome guests into your home all year long.

Add a Pop of Color with a Rug

Welcome mats are so last year. Upgrade your porch with a fun rug! Outdoor rugs are an easy way to elevate the entrance of your home without making permanent changes or spending too much. For extra visual interest, try layering two rugs to create a unique look that stands out.

 

Provide Privacy with Outdoor Curtains

Hanging curtains along your front porch gives you the option to enjoy your space in privacy while adding a softer design element to your entryway. These panels give your porch the feeling of it being its own room. Select brightly colored curtains for a pop of color or go classic with a beige, gray, or off white option.
