Ways To Decorate A Front Small Porch
Decorating your small porch adds curb appeal and gives you something lovely to come home to each day. Even a small porch can be elegant, warm, striking or whimsical. Here are some ways to decorate a small porch. Hang a wreath from a hook on the door leading to the porch to complement the exterior colors of the home. You may also look for wreaths that correlate with a specific season, such as lavender for spring or sunflowers for autumn. Incorporate your interests in your porch decor to give it personality. For example, if you spent a memorable vacation at a tropical destination, bring it into the space by adding wicker seats, a colorful floor mat and a small potted palm tree. Add color by placing small planters with colorful flowers along the edge of the porch, or add hanging flower baskets from the porch ceiling. Hang a colorful flag from a porch post or exterior siding and finish off the space with a vibrant-colored mat that’s not only functional, but helps tie the rest of the decor together.
Place a small bench or two bistro chairs and table on the small porch to provide an outdoor entertainment area without taking up too much room. Create a relaxing, private retreat by placing a privacy screen made of natural materials, like bamboo, or a sun shade around the porch walls or railings. Set up a comfortable chair and add your favorite potted plants or flowers to bring color into the space. If there is a nearby electrical outlet, plug in a soothing water fountain to add decoration to the porch as well as provide a calming ambiance.
