1. A Door Wreath Gives Your Entry Door a Personal Touch

It’s easy to make your own. Check out this video on how we made a spring wreath:

2. Adding Furniture to Your Front Porch Will Give it a Homey Look

Not only will adding furniture to your front porch make it a fun place to hang out with friends and family, but it’ll also give your home a warm, inviting look. It’s a fun, inexpensive way to improve your home’s curb appeal.

There are many types of furniture to choose from. Many homeowners go with a wood or metal bench but you have other options. If your porch is under an awning, wicker furniture with cloth cushions are a great choice.

You can also get a patio table and chairs for a nice place to sit and eat or play games while you’re outside. You have unlimited options when it comes to front porch furniture.

3. Put Yourself in a Festive Mood with Holiday Front Porch Decorations

Decorating your front porch for the holidays is a great way to put yourself in a festive mood. Whether it’s Christmas, Halloween, Hanukkah, Valentines Day, Ramadan or any other holiday, there’s sure to be front porch decorations that will be perfect for your home.

4. Blend the Inside and Outside Together with a Storm Door

What better way to decorate your front porch than by blurring the line between the inside and outside. Storm doors are the perfect addition to any entryway and will help improve the look of your front porch. With a full-glass storm door, you’ll be able to open your entry door without the fear of bugs or the elements getting into your home.

Not only does a storm door improve your porch, but your entire home will benefit. Storm doors add another layer of insulation that prevents heat or air from escaping your home (depending on the season). This will make your home more comfortable year round and save you money on your energy bills.

5. Build a Little Fence Around Your Front Porch

Building a fence around your front porch adds a unique touch that will catch the eye of your neighbors. You can customize the style and color however you want. Make sure it complements the rest of your home.

6. Flowers Add a Splash of Color to Your Front Porch

If you want to add a little life and color to your front porch, potted flowers are perfect. There are so many different flowers to choose from so you’re sure to find a style and color that matches your home perfectly.

You can also choose the size of your flowers and how many you want on your front porch. Go with two small pots on each side of your entry door or go crazy with a jungle of flowers. The choice is yours!

8. Custom Door Mats Are Sure to Draw Some Attention

If you want to create your own front porch decorations, making a custom door mat is a great place to start. All you need to do is buy a blank door mat and come up with a design. That’s it! The only limitation is your imagination.

You don’t even need to start with a blank door mat. Some DIY-ers get creative and use items from around their house like corks or a garden hose. Get wild with your homemade door mat and come up with something unique.

9. Your Entry Door Can Completely Change the Look of Your Front Porch

One simple way to improve the look of your front porch is to get a replacement entry door. While it’s not a decoration, it can help make your entryway look awesome. By adding a transom, sidelights and decorative glass, you’re sure to have an entry door that’ll improve your home’s curb appeal.

Much like a replacement storm door, a new entry door does more than improve the look of your home. Replacing your old, worn out entry door will help improve your home’s energy efficiency which will make it comfortable year round and lower your energy bills. There’s no losing with a replacement entry door.
