As the weather starts warming up, it’s time to spring into action! Here are some beautiful ways to give your outdoor porch a refresh. From an accent furniture piece to a beautiful rug, these simple pro tips for how to decorate a porch for spring will make a huge impact!
Up first on the list of front porch decorating ideas — outdoor furniture! Your patio can be a go-to hang-out with the right pieces. All you need is a sturdy coffee table or even a couple of smaller end tables for food and drinks, as well as versatile seating like a bench and a few chairs.
Folding chairs are great space-saving options since they can easily be set off to the side or in a closet until needed. Give old furniture a facelift with a fresh coat of paint, or pick up a few high-quality, low-cost pieces at your nearest CORT Furniture Outlet.
Plants & Flowers
When it comes to spring patio décor, flowers are a no-brainer. Who doesn’t love Gerbera daisies or daffodils? Another way to incorporate flowers is to hang a wreath — more (flower) power to you if you DIY! Plants and greenery are also great options. Create a zen vibe with bamboo, make a laid-back locale with palm trees, or accent a modern space with a mix of succulents.
If you missed out on the green thumb gene, don’t worry! CORT has on-trend faux greenery to complete the look and feel you want while lasting season after season. Find pretty planters or pick up a couple of terracotta pots and spray paint them whatever color you’d like.
Pillows & Cushions
Pillows are an easy way to add character to any space — and your porch is no exception. Use outdoor throw pillows or furniture cushions to liven up your patio. They are relatively inexpensive (especially if you can find gently-used styles in good condition) and can be swapped out easily to coordinate with the seasons.
Tip: Look for pillows and cushions with removable covers that can be tossed into the washing machine. Since they’re bound to get dirty when exposed to the elements, this will help make cleaning easier.
Rugs & Doormats
Who says rugs are indoor-only décor? An area rug can boost the appeal of your outdoor space, whether it’s a calm neutral, or bright springy color. And don’t let your doormat be a doormat — it needs a moment to shine, too. There are many stylish options out there, from cool bohemian patterns to charming “Home Sweet Home” options. Polypropylene and coir are the best all-weather material, but PVC and polyester are great options as well.
The last on this list of front porch and balcony decorating ideas is a must: string lights! Hang large bulbs or twinkle lights overhead or wrap them around the railing, just make sure they’re equipped for outdoor conditions. You’ll love the enchanting atmosphere they create.
