5. Keep it Simple

Is your front door already a statement piece? Does your home stand out on its own? Front door planters aren’t out of the picture just yet.

You can still decorate your entryway without detracting from the door’s or home’s overall beauty. It’s easy to make a statement without overdoing it by keeping your front door planter simple.

Adding clean, green foliage is the perfect way of accenting any home regardless of what it looks like.

6. Don’t Have Any Space?

If you think your front entrance is too small or narrow to decorate, think again. Any entryway can be a home to front door planters regardless of how much space is available for you to decorate.

The solution to a tight space is to go with a tall, slender planter. One planter is enough as it will automatically draw the eye of anyone that visits your home.

7. Hanging Out

Another planter that’ll never go out of style is the hanging potted plant. The reason hanging planters are popular with homeowners is because they can go with any type of decor.

Not only that, but they take up virtually no space. So if you’re limited on the amount of room you have to decorate, not a problem at all.

All you have to do is find the perfect spot to hang it and you’re all set! Now you have a decorated entryway that didn’t take much effort at all.

Not only do trees look beautiful in front of any house, but they also help to the environment. It’s doesn’t get any better than that, right?
