There is nothing like driving through your neighborhood and looking at all the beautiful front porches. It is so easy to look at those porches and think to yourself, “My porch could never look like that” and “I don’t know how to make my porch look like that”. Well, we are here to make it easy for you. We want to give you some easy tips that can help you turn your front porch into the porch of your dreams.
First things first, you can’t have a front porch without a welcome mat. We would recommend getting a basic welcome mat that shows a little bit of personality. It can have words, flowers, or a design that best fits you. To really make your welcome mat pop, make sure to layer it with a larger cloth mat underneath. This will take up more space and make it warmer and more inviting. Typically, this cloth mat is larger and patterned with neutral colors.
The next thing is to make sure that you include are plants and flowers. These will be sure to bring life and a pop of color to your front porch. You can really show some personality with the flowers and plants that you pick. Pro Tip: be sure to make sure that the plant you pick will survive outside as well as be able to tolerate the amount of sun your porch receives.
To add a little height and make your guests feel welcome, we recommend a wooden welcome sign. We love our wooden welcome signs here at Native Range and are sure we have one that will fit your porch aesthetic. Welcome signs are not only beautiful, but they also add some visual appeal with their height.
If you have a larger front porch, we also recommend adding a set of matching chairs. Then, find some fun pillows that match your other front porch décor to put on them. This will make the space feel cozy and be the perfect place to go for your morning coffee or evening sweet tea.
