Add A Splash Of Sunshine
Nothing is more welcoming than a porch full of brightly colored flowers. When the weather is warm enough, placing large pots of colorful flowers make the perfect spring porch. You can also add a simple flower wreath to the front door or a placard welcoming the season.
If you want your spring porch to really pack a punch, consider painting your front door with a bright color, like yellow, to welcome the warm days of spring. You could also try matching the colors of your flowers with features like your front door and window frames.
Subtle, Yet Effective
Sometimes you don’t want a lot of fanfare … and that’s also ok! Keep it simple with a spring wreath, a potted plant, and an adorable doormat.
If you’re unsure about what plants you should add to your spring front spring porch decor, I’d recommend those with small foliage and flowers (think Daisies, Baby’s Breath and Lobelia) that add a touch of subtlety to your design.
If your front porch is small, too many decorative items can make this area look busy and uninviting, so rather stick to a few items that you know will make a statement.
Neat And Pretty
Nothing says, “Hello spring!” quite like a big bouquet of beautiful spring flowers. Your guests will be delighted when greeted by this happy pop of color. Pristine and poised, I think this gorgeous space is simply drool-worthy.
Many people presume that you have to clutter your front porch with different textures and greens because it’s an outdoor space. Still, this modern design porch shows that minimal eye-catching features can be just as effective and evoke all those beautiful springtime feels.
Bright Yellow And White Tulips Make For Brighter Days
This is definitely one of my favorite spring porch ideas! With a big “Welcome” on your front door, you’ll definitely start the spring season off on the right foot. You can also never underestimate the impact of a well-placed topiary for your front porch decor.
Pairing a topiary with a bright bunch of colorful tulips in a watering can creates a sleek statement without overpowering the rest of the front porch area. I love that this spring porch decorating idea requires barely any effort and is super cost-effective.
Comfy, Cozy And Overall Homey
It doesn’t get cozier than this! Installing a porch swing and potted plants can contribute to a homey vibe that will have you itching to spend all your spring days in this comfy little space.
A great spring porch idea is to elevate your seating by hooking it to the roof with some rope or investing in a brand-new swing to make your whole front porch light and airy.
Terra cotta pots work great as a neutral background for the potted flowers adorning this beautiful spring porch. Can you imagine a prettier place to spend those warm spring days?
Lazy Spring Days
This design is another example showing that you don’t have to go overboard with your spring porch decor!
Inspired by romantic and feminine touches, and most especially, by an abundance of pink flowers, a simple arrangement featured on the steps of the spring porch and a rocking chair in the background creates a beautiful outdoor living space for lazy afternoon reading.
One of the best spring porch ideas is to play with textures and incorporate colors that offset each element. I love how these blue hues make the flower colors pop.
Good For The Soul
Decorating your spring porch doesn’t just have to incorporate bright bunches of spring flowers. Plants and grasses in small pots covered with pieces of hessian cloth can create a rustic yet elegant look that imbues a sense of peace and the tranquility of nature.
Of course, you could still add flowers to your decor. The white flowers really work well in this particular outdoor space. Make sure that you have enough potting soil and your kids won’t be able to resist the urge to get involved in all the springtime festivities!
Your Kids Will Also Love This One
Are you short on time or money? When it comes to decorating outdoor spaces, this should never be an issue. All it takes is a simple arrangement of fake or fresh spring flowers (like these tulips) or some brightly colored porch decorations to breathe new life into your spring porch.
Add a bench and a metal watering can, and you’ll have the perfect play area for your little ones. Since Easter falls in spring, get your kids to help you with some Easter decorations with my easy Easter front porch decorating ideas.
Soft Pops Of Color
One thing’s for certain … you can never go wrong with Heather (or Lavender)! The soft pop of color (and scent) of these flowers can complement and liven up just about any space.
Tiered planters are exceptional for planting herb gardens (this idea can also be applied to step tiers) Utilizing multiple levels offers the illusion of extra space.
The chalky white planters together with the violet flowers create a calm and soothing atmosphere. Combine this look with other decorative elements, such as lanterns, candles or old bird cages, and you’ll soon create a piece of heaven right on your spring porch.
Spring Flowers To Inspire
With beautiful blooming blossoms, this front porch looks fresh and all set for spring! While a small porch can often limit your options, it doesn’t have to feel small. Your front porch will always have the advantage of feeling cozy.
Smart planning and a little ingenuity go a long way in creating an efficient outdoor space. This design also offers another great example of how helpful and effective tiered planters can be.
Always a great spring porch idea, the chalkboard sign can come in handy when you’re wanting to convey a message or need a reminder.
Fresh Flowers In A Basket
Using the items you already have, you can transform the look of your porch. Farm-inspired items like wicker baskets and candles are easy and practical, especially if you’re on a tight budget.
Add some fresh flowers and pair them with pretty white lanterns to ensure that your front area is ready for spring without spending a fortune. If you don’t have white lanterns, hand painted ones would work jist as well. You could opt to use spray paint or regular white paint to decorate any lanterns (or even bird cages) that you may not be using.
Although this design also uses lanterns, the end product is very different from the previous spring porch idea. Lanterns are great if you don’t want to be OTT since you can still transform your porch into a magical space without having to buy special decorations. Use candles to add light and extra ambiance to your porch on warm summer nights.
I love the contrast created by these black iron lanterns and the bright pink petunias, which add a dash of color to the arrangement.
Don’t have a ton of space to place planters on your porch? Do yourself a favor and use hanging baskets so you can show off your houseplants in style. Fill your baskets with either one type or an assortment of flowers.
For tons of flower power on an easy-to-grow plant that thrives in the sun, you can never go wrong with Petunias. These tough plants can produce blooms all season long and come in a wide variety of bright colors and patterns, adding mountains of color to your porch.
Rustic Meets Chic
Home decoration is never as easy as having something as beautiful as a classic old watering can that you can make your own. Ask around before purchasing an old can: you never know what people are about to toss!
Once you have your hands on a great can, feel free to paint it however you like. You could have more than one can in an arrangement! Pair this with Peonies, other potted plants, and an old repurposed wooden fruit crate to meld the worlds of rustic and chic to create something classy that still feels relaxed and homey.
It’s All About The Texture
Why should your yard get to enjoy the Hydrangea blooms all by itself? A beautiful pastel cluster perks up one corner of the porch in this eclectic design. I just love using simple elements and lots of texture on my tables.
The wicker basket used instead of the traditional vase to display the Hydrangeas adds to the rustic feel, making this one of my favorite spring porch ideas.
Warmth And Happiness
Potted flowers may transform a dreary porch into a lush, enchanted haven. Whether you seek gorgeous flowers, fragrant blossoms, herbs, or simply a little bit of peace, building your own happy little space on your porch is a great way to get it. The marigolds depicted in this design exude a warmth that makes me happy!
The Farm Feels
You can transform the look of your front porch using the decorative items you already have in your basement or attic! Farm-inspired items, like a galvanized bucket, old milk cans and wooden crates, are easy and practical, especially if you’re on a tight budget.
Add some plants and a few branches of yellow Mimosa to make sure that you’re ready for the spring without breaking the bank!
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Disposing of old, used tires is a growing problem. While some tires are recycled into rubber mulch and other items, such as a welcome mat, one of the easiest ways to recycle unwanted tires is by making them into garden planters.
When you turn an old tire into a garden planter, you create a versatile addition to your garden while reducing the requirement to recycle or dispose of the tire. I adore these brightly painted yellow tires—they’re cute, colorful and make a statement. Inspired by this look? Head here to see how it’s done.
Orange Rubber Boots
The look just screams simple country and shows that you don’t need to incorporate tons of flowers and foliage to create a springtime feel. The orange rubber rain boots add the perfect amount of color that complements (yet stands out) amongst the other earthly colors.
It’s a pity this picture wasn’t taken at night, as I would have loved to see the magical effect created with the draped fairy lights.
You Can Never Go Wrong With Spring Door Baskets
Spring is the best time for displaying a lovely spring door basket. I really adore the idea of a spring flower basket adorning my front porch.
Whether you use artificial or real flowers, I think gorgeous spring wreaths or baskets on the front entrance say makes for a cheerful welcome to everyone passing by your home and create the perfect backdrop for your spring decor.
The Magic Garden
When you have limited porch space, it’s crucial to find functional furniture pieces that won’t make the area look cramped. Shop for chairs with slim profiles made of durable, outdoor-friendly materials. That way, you can incorporate more furnishings into the space without creating visual clutter.
Add colorful pillows and a rug to make it a little cozier and more comfortable. My favorite part of this design? The practical and beautifully draped fairy lights are a clear winner for me!
What Can I Hang On My Porch Besides Plants?
Besides plants, you can hang also hang items such as different glass jars on your porch. Jars from baby food or even mayonnaise jars could work. Votives or candles are pretty additions, but make sure that they’re suitable for the size of the jars you are utilizing.
How Can I Make My Porch Feel Cozy?
You can make your porch cozy by using items such as colorful throw pillows, an outdoor rug, soft cushions, and throws. You could also add lanterns and string lights. Combine different plants and flowers to create a cozy vibe.
What Looks Good On A Front Porch?
A rug looks good on a front porch. The presence of a rug lets everyone know that this is a spot to relax. An accent table along with comfortable seating creates an inviting feel. Potted plants and the right lighting can create a calm, yet welcoming atmosphere.
How Do I Brighten My Front Porch?
You can brighten your front porch by painting the porch floor and accessorize by adding some art pieces on porch walls with some accompanying light fixtures. Add furniture, along with brightly colored cozy cushions and throw pillows. Choose fabrics in vibrant patterns and colors that complement the diverse outdoor texture.
If you can’t find accessories that match your color scheme, just use some spray paint and you’ll be good to go!
