Is your front porch looking a bit neglected? Is it not bringing you joy? There are some quick and easy ways to freshen up that tired front porch. Give your house a little facelift with the following ideas.
Repainting your entire house can get costly. But, you can still give your house even more appeal by simply painting the door. Pick a color that pops yet doesn’t clash with the rest of your home’s exterior. It’s an easy and affordable way to add personality.
It seems like no big deal, but front porch lights not only light up the front of your house, but it can also add extra visual appeal. If your lights are dull and boring, a new fixture may add a little light in your life.
Add an artistic flair to your front porch with cool house numbers. You can find these on sites like Etsy or Home Depot. Drop them over your door, or alongside it. Anywhere it’s easily noticeable. There are so many fun and funky designs available to add instant character to your front porch refresh.
A touch as unique as your personality, door knockers can be straightforward or ornate. Modern, or antique. You can find cool ones at antique shows or home and garden shops. They’re fun too look at and also fun for guests to use.
Flowers and Plants
Depending on the size of your front porch, add a splash of color with plants in interesting pots. Add containers of flowers around your front walkway if you don’t have room on the porch. You could also choose hanging plants for a burst of beauty. Spray paint old planters for a new and fresh look.
Seats and Swings
If you have the room, create a cozy seating space. Or, hang a porch swing. If new porch furniture is out of your price range, look on Facebook marketplace, or go to garage sales. Older furniture could always be refreshed along with your porch. Just add an indoor/outdoor rug and colorful couch cushions and curl up with a good book!
A new welcome mat layered on top of a cool outdoor rug can give your front porch a new focal point. Flank with a couple of plastic plants in planters. You’ll have a year-round look and never have to worry about the plants dying.
For that final touch, just add a floral wreath to your front door. They’re so inviting while changing the entire look of your door. You can make your own, there are plenty of patterns on Pinterest. Just search “wreath patterns”, or you can hit up your local arts and crafts store. Or, buy one already made from your local home and garden or gift shop.
To give your house a little lift and maximize your home’s curb appeal, changing up your front porch may be all it needs.
