Sprucing up the Front Porch for Spring

Front Porch Feels

 

Who doesn’t dream of  front porch swinging? Spring is here and what better time then to spruce up your entry to create the ultimate curb appeal.

Sharing 5 simple ways to spruce up your front porch for spring.

•Welcome Door Mat

•Front Door Wreaths

•Seating

•Plants + Pots

•Pillows

 

Before we  dive into decorating, lets talk about the main stage.

Jody, my husband (also the builder), and I designed and built our coastal modern farmhouse.  My initial vision for our front porch included a natural wood deck, treated and stained.  It’s important to wash, stain and seal wood decks – a process that can take several days and may require the use of heavy equipment like a power washer. Jody suggested a product that he knew would be both visually pleasing as well as durable, Trex. I was surprised to see the variety of samples with realistic colors and textures – With high-definition wood grain patterns and rich, saturated colors inspired by the outdoors, Trex decking looks more natural than other composites and boasts a vibrancy that remains unchanged for years. Compared to wood and PVC, composite building materials offer a variety of color options for incredible design flexibility to suit the style of any home. Unlike wood, and even many PVC options, high-performance Trex decking resists fading, scratching and mold – and won’t rot, warp, crack or splinter. How cool is that?

Plants that will beat the FL heat

I am a Jersey girl transplanted to FL, neither of my thumbs are green but I quickly learned that native plants always thrive and you need to do very little. Snake plants and succulents line our front steps, I dropped them in vintage crocs and haven’t touched them since.

 

On each side of the front doors are topiary trees potted in gray recycled double lip planters that look like real concrete. I love a good modern rustic mix, adds warmth and feels inviting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome mat

Switching out your doormat is the best way freshen up your porch on a budget. Our new “hello” mat is perfect for spring and comes in many sizes, 3×6 pictured here, perfect for double door entry. I love to change door mats with the seasons. Layering throw rugs is another inexpensive way to get unique look, bonus is they are washable!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Front Door Decor

Would you believe our doors are fiberglass? We saved literally thousands by staining them to look like real wood. The process is saved to my Instagram highlights. Even if you couldn’t see right through our house I would always add wreath to the front door. I love using a simple eucalyptus wreath that I could easily add to and change with the seasons.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sit Back and Relax

The key to a cozy front porch is seating and of course PILLOWS!  Rocking chairs are a must! I found a set of  wood rockers and a modern wicker and metal 3 piece set to provide almost enough for our family of six. Our kids don’t sit long anyway, who am I kidding? We don’t either. They usually grab an ice pop and snack and choose a step. OH!  No need to worry about food or beverage as Trex composites as they retain their beauty for decades with minimal upkeep, we get to spend more time enjoying – rather than maintaining – we never need to worry about sanding, staining or painting – just do a simple soap and water cleaning twice a year, the deck will look the same in years to come.

I hope this inspired you to get outside and create the ultimate curb appeal! Happy Spring!

Wow! Keep it up. Those designs are so great it’s like you are one with nature you got there. The design matches the house with white and green design. It looks cool on the outside and on the inside.
