Nothing makes a first impression quite like your front porch. The place that welcomes you home first is also where you relax and enjoy the outdoors with family, friends, and by yourself. That’s why it’s so much fun to flex your creative muscles and add a personal touch to your porch!
Take a look at a few of our favorite tips and tricks for a front porch that makes a statement and makes you feel good, whether you’re enjoying coffee in the morning or coming home from a trip:
Front Porch Decorating Ideas
Small and Inviting: If your porch is on the smaller side, try a two-seat bench or small bistro table and chairs, perfect for all of those cozy get-togethers and quiet mornings. For a chic, layered look, you can also add a few lush plants and throw in some neutral-colored pillows!
Happy and Cozy: There’s nothing like the coziness of your porch. A wicker or wood sofa with soft cushions, throw pillows, a rug, and outdoor curtains create that peaceful, happy vibe you love while relaxing outside. Pro tip: add a couple of side chairs and accent tables so guests can join you and have a place to set their iced tea.
Decorate on a Dime: You can absolutely beautify your porch without breaking your wallet! It’s so much fun to go antiquing for old crates, watering cans, or buckets to use as planters. You can also spruce up an old bench or pair of chairs with a fresh coat of paint. We love leaning old doors and windows against the wall!
Southern Chic: There’s no harm in a little Southern charm! Try painting the ceiling to match your front door or paint the porch floor to match your Bahama shutters. You can even add rocking chairs, front door exterior lights, hanging lights, and ceiling fans for more of that irresistible, classic southern charm look.
Pick a Theme: The easiest way to start decorating is to pick a theme, whether beachy, coastal, or boho chic. This will help you choose your colors, furnishings, and accessories! Check out a couple different furniture websites; most use home decorating themes to help customers find what they’re looking for.
Let There Be Light(s): Nothing adds pops of positive energy to your porch like twinkling string lights. Browse for stylish lights with distinct bulbs that are specifically made for the outdoors, and watch your area sparkle. You’ll love relaxing under the warm glow!
