Fall is steadily approaching, time for cozy sweaters, pumpkin picking, nice warm cups of apple cider, and decorating! Your front porch is one of the first things people see when they look at your home. Why not have it match the season and give your home some added curb appeal. Here are some great fall ideas to help decorate your porch.
Wreath – Putting a wreath on your door is a sign of welcome and is the perfect way to add a little flair to your front porch.
Fall Colors – Oranges and reds are reminiscent of fallen leaves and can bring the perfect fall aesthetic to your front porch, but these are not the only colors you should be using. White and metallic colors are a great modern approach that is sure to turn heads.
Plaid Pattern – During the fall month’s plaid should not just be something you wear but a pattern you decorate with as well. Plaid is a fun pattern that can add texture to your porch. You could layer a plaid rug with a welcome mat on top to give your porch those HGTV vibes or put a plaid throw on your favorite outdoor chair.
Cozy Seating – Sitting outside on a crisp autumn morning enjoying a cup of coffee cannot be beaten. Having that perfect cozy place to sit on your porch can be a relaxing experience. Depending on the size of your porch will depend on what type of seating you can have. If you have a small porch consider two rocking chairs and a small table. If you have a larger porch you could add a swing bench or even a couch! Whatever seating you decide decorate it with some pillows and blankets. Make your porch a relaxing retreat that everyone will enjoy.
Pumpkin Galore – When people think of fall they think of pumpkin everything! Pumpkin picking, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin spice lattes. But Pumpkins make a great porch decoration that can be personalized to give your porch added flair. They can be painted, carved, and decorated with ribbon. Gather the family and head on over to your local pumpkin patch to each choose a pumpkin to decorate!
Halloween Decorations – Fall and Halloween fall hand in hand (see what I did there). While adding in your fall decorations you are probably thinking of ways on how to incorporate your Halloween decorations as well. Jack o lanterns are a Halloween staple and can fit in perfectly with your already placed pumpkins on your porch or front steps. Additionally, don’t be scared to get spooky! Adding spooky elements like skulls, spider webs, and bats don’t have to be an eyesore. When done correctly it can be chic and shows that you are in the Halloween Spirit.
