Well Spring has officially sprung! Your front porch is what gives people their first impression of your home. It should always be welcoming. It could be a large covered space that looks more like an outdoor room or maybe it’s just a little slab or cement in front of your door. No matter what your specific situation, there is always a way to add warmth and style!
To start off, let’s talk about something everyone has……a front door.
Since the front door is the focal point of your home, it’s a great place to add a little extra interest……along with the typical wreath, here are some different ideas we love!
Let’s talk flowers and plants, what an easy way to add life and color! Think about using unusual containers or displays, what a perfect way to up cycle and re purpose what other people call junk! Your plantings don’t even have to be just decorative! Think about planting herbs, or a small container garden!Don’t forget the accents, lighting and furniture. Your porch is an extension of your home, an outdoor room. So add the finishing touches! There are so many options in lighting, permanent and decorative. Furniture can be new, vintage, or up cycled……..and don’t spare the fabrics, they make great outdoor fabrics that will add color and texture to your space…….and there is always good ol’ scotch guard to weatherize. And last but not least, don’t be afraid to throw down a rug to ground everything and add additional texture and interest to your porch!
