Front porches serve as a covered space where family, friends, and guests can make themselves presentable before ringing the door. It can also be a place to welcome visitors. In time for the holidays, when there’s a surge of friends and visitors coming over, here are our 5 front porch ideas to make your front porch a place of festive appeal!
An Aromatic Potted Plant
Make your front porch more comfortable for visitors by putting insect-repelling plants by the doorway or seats. This will not only ensure your porch is bug-free, it’ll also keep your front porch smelling great all the time.
A rustic décor by day, and a beautiful source of light by nightfall, a hanging lantern is also a symbol of the festive gatherings to come. Increase joyous ambiance with a hanging lantern by your porch. If your have steps leading to your porch, it’ll also be a wise investment to install light near the steps to avoid accidents.
A Festive Welcome Mat
Make your guests feel more welcome even before they knock on your door with a festive welcome mat!
If you’re keen on getting privacy, climbing plants on a lattice work can give you a beautiful screen without blocking too much sunlight from your porch. If you have the budget, you can even have sculpted bushes and hedges as privacy screens. You can also create container gardens to line up your steps.
A Living Christmas Tree
Think a living Christmas tree is too big for a front porch? Think again. With a potted rosemary, you can have a miniature tree adorn a nook of your porch. Mimic the design you have for your indoor tree and extend the festive ambiance of your home out onto the porch.
