When creating a welcoming home, first impressions matter as much as elsewhere in life, so don’t go about treating your front porch as just a convenient parking spot. Instead, consider sprucing it up with these decor ideas and impress every guest who visits!
1. Create a garden pathway
Whether it’s made out of bricks, flagstones or granite, a rustic pathway is one landscape feature to consider for your porch makeover – after all, there’s nothing that says classic quite like a lawn pathway that leads indoors.
2. Include plenty of greenery
Framing your front porch with lush greens (or your favourite blooms) is one way to add life to an entrance and make it look good at the same time.
3. Include a water feature
Water features, such as fountains and ponds, might require regular maintenance, but wowing your friends and family certainly makes the effort worth it.
4. Use cheery colours
As with the indoors, a bright splash of colour is great for adding character and interest to your front porch.
5. Illuminate it with outdoor lamps
Other than ensuring the safety of your front porch at night, outdoor lamps (like those in parks) also make for a romantic accent that are as charming as they are functional.
6. Build an outdoor deck
Outdoor decks are a great way to connect your porch to the entryway, plus they make a great spot to hang out at on sunny days.
7. Add awnings
Awnings (and canopies) are useful additions to any front porch, especially if you intend to spend time outdoors and need some shade.
