Spring is, well, springing along the Gulf Coast, and among the many ways to get in the spirit of the season is to give your front porch a little makeover to make it appropriately welcoming.
After all, it’s only fair that as trees start to turn green, flowers begin to bloom and the weather warms up that the outside of the home renew itself to match.
Here are six simple ways to dress up your front porch for spring!
You don’t have to go so far as to get a new door, but you can work with what you’ve got. Something as small as a new coat of paint, repainting or adding trim and even new hardware can give the centerpiece of your front porch a fresh new look.
Giving your door a makeover can make a big difference, but don’t stop there. Replace the address numbers and shine a new light on your work with brighter lights or even different lighting to complement everything else.
Of course a “new” door needs a new wreath to set it off. Simply adding a wreath is an easy way to give your front porch seasonal flair. You can even upgrade the look of your welcome mat by layering it over an all-weather accent rug.
Think bigger and bolder statement planters and plants and maybe an assortment of smaller supporting ones. You can give your existing planters an updated look with paint so you can match it to the rest of your front porch decor.
Show off your personality with unique decor. Maybe it’s relevant to a favorite hobby or collection you have or even a piece that has a special meaning or sentimental value, such as something handmade or hand-painted by you or a friend.
It’s true that the front porch can help make that all-important first impression, and you can extend that appeal by washing or painting the sidewalk or walkway leading up to it.
