30+ Inspiring Ideas To Freshen Up Your Front Porch For Spring


Spring is officially here and if you have not started decorating your outdoor spaces for the season yet, it is time, to begin with your front porch. Bright colors are a great way to welcome Spring. Consider a spring wreath or a new welcome mat to help welcome your guests.

This is the perfect time to freshen up your outdoor decor.  To freshen up your front door and outdoor areas, consider adding a wreath to your door, garlands, potted spring flowers, welcome signs, and other decors that will help create a spring-like atmosphere. Fresh flowers near some wicker chairs or a front porch swing with bright throw pillows can create a beautiful escape, even on a small porch.

If you have the space, some rocking chairs in a fresh coat of paint can provide a pop of color. Add some outdoor rugs to help bring it all together. Outdoor furniture is a fun way to create an additional seating area for entertaining and adding some natural elements with pops of color really brings these porch decorations to life.

If you are in an area that can experience late Spring snowy weather, faux flowers in wicker baskets are easy ways to bring that fresh Spring feel and country living when real plants may not be ready to plant yet. We have lots of front porch decor ideas to inspire you. Don’t forget to tell us which one is your favorite idea and why!
