After being cooped up indoors all winter long, we can’t think of a better way to celebrate the warmer weather than by relaxing on a front porch with a glass of iced tea and a good book. But if your setup needs a little refreshing post wreaths, pinecones, and evergreen garland, we’ve found some stunning front doors and patios that are full of springtime decorating ideas. Read on for how to create a warm and welcoming patio that’ll have you doubling your time spent outside—and will up your curb appeal too!

Charming Moments

Consider incorporating a vignette into a compact entry to greet guests with something unexpectedly lovely. Here, a wicker side table and an arrangement of tropical plants set an eclectic mood.

Front Door Decor

Wreaths can’t have all the fun. This eucalyptus and rose garland frames the door to create the most magical of entryways. An antique trunk and wood chair elevate the farmhouse charm.

Swing Time

Not enough room for a full patio set? A daybed not only creates a wow-factor for your front porch, but it’s also a functional piece that can seat multiple guests. Throw down a few floor cushions around a stylized coffee table for a dreamy hangout spot.

Natural Elements

Keep it simple and just put a pretty bench and side table together. Burlap pillows and a wood stump for plants suits the home’s shabby chic style.

Mood Lighting

Breezy spring nights call for a glass of wine outdoors to watch the sunset. And we can’t think of a more fitting way to illuminate a casual space than budget-friendly string lights.

Lively Color

Don’t be afraid to take risks with color. Even if your home is mostly neutral, the outside is the perfect opportunity to add a wow factor with bright hues. An easy way to get started: choose one shade and run with it!

Soothing Effect

This soothing white and gray front porch couldn’t be a more idyllic place to spend an afternoon. The matching chairs and pillow arrangement along with symmetrical plants and sconces creates a mirrored effect for a clean, cohesive look.

Tiny Touches

A mint colored bungalow already screams spring, but this darling little porch gets even more lovely with a collection of streamlined black planters and an art deco chair.

Use Your Hobby

A propped-up surfboard gives this home laid-back character before you even step up to the porch. Three simple white rocking chairs emulate classic elegance that will never go out of style.

Step Up

For a front porch that’s really just stairs leading up to the door, you can still create a stylized entryway by using the steps as resting spots for decorative pieces. Here, the potted plants double as sculptures, creating an artful display where spiky cacti add cool contrast to the pretty in pink front door. Different planters in the same color keep the look sophisticated and chic.

Entertaining in Style

Sectioning off an area of your porch for al fresco dining gives the area a sense of purpose when you’re struggling with how to fill the space. Brightly painted mismatched chairs set the tone for a playful springtime soiree.

Hang Around

Let’s be honest: Who wouldn’t want to retreat to this oh-so-elegant enclosed porch? The rattan hanging chair practically makes our hearts skip a beat and is a nice twist on the English country look.

No need for extras when you have a view like this. Two Adirondack chairs and a natural fiber doormat emulate the ease of seaside living.

Front Door Focus

If your home’s front porch is more about curb appeal and less about lounging out there (most likely because you opt for your more secluded backyard), don’t feel pressured to deck it out with furniture. A vibrant front door color and a few stylish accessories are all you need for a picture perfect spot that suits your needs.

Antique Details

No space is too small to add curb appeal. A decorating theme helps unify the compact space that can only fit a few touches. Wicker furniture, an antique shutter, and aged trays and glasses unifies the area.
