Spruce up Your Front Porch for Spring

Springtime is around the corner and with it brings warmer weather that demands a cozy place to chill outside. Freshen up your front porch before the heat hits and you’ll be thankful for a homey place to enjoy the weather. Use these design trends and decorating tips to spruce up your outdoor space to create a welcoming place to unwind for the spring season.

Add Functional Furniture

Your front porch can be a functional and fun space to host friends and family. Enjoy the outdoors from the comfort of your own home by creating a space to cozy up together on your front porch. You don’t have to break your budget to add a seating arrangement to snuggle up on the porch this spring. Porch swings are a fun addition to any front porch and are great for hosting company or an afternoon nap. Rocking chairs are another great option for seating that is functional and fashionable. Rock the morning away with a cup of coffee or hang with friends while you watch the kiddos play in the front yard. Add any type of seating arrangement to your front porch and you’ll be thankful for a new space to enjoy the spring weather.

Go for the Green

Add some greenery to your porch this season with hassle-free planter pots and flowers. Get some decorative pottery and fill it with low-maintenance flowers and trick all your neighbors into thinking you have a green thumb. Make springtime gardening easy this summer and purchase pottery that has the option for a self-watering insert that does the work for you. Add color to your front porch with pretty ceramic pots that come in a variety of sizes and textures. Make your front door extra welcoming with a DIY door wreath. With a crafty attitude and some cheerful flowers, you can enhance your curb appeal and reradiate spring’s energy from the first glance.

Create a Cozy Corner

Now that you have the seating essentials, its time to transform your porch into a cozy and comfortable place. Add accent throw pillows for an extra cushion and a splash of color. Additionally, outdoor pillows are great as they invite relaxation and can even be used for additional seating in a pinch. Make your front porch pop with an outdoor rug that adds a stylish print and a comfy place to rest your feet. Outdoor rugs are easy to care for and are simple to sweep the leaves and dirt off of without a hassle. Boost coziness on the cool nights with extra throw blankets to cuddle up under. Their texture will add an unspoken elegance and their warmth will be appreciated during late night chats.

The spring season should be enjoyed outside and with a few essentials, you can transform your front porch into the relaxing space to unwind that you need. Invite friends and family over for outdoor fun confidently by adding a few key functional items and stylish décor to your front porch.
