Decorating your porch can be tricky. The goal is for it to be warm and welcoming without involving a lot of clutter, especially if your porch is smaller. When paired together, these three items will make your house look like a home.
1. A Sign
Whether it reads “Welcome” or your last name, a sign adds love to any porch. You can buy a decently priced, yet nice sign at a store like Home Goods. You can even get creative and make one. Consider buying or crafting a vertical sign design because it’s trendy and doesn’t take up a lot of space on your porch.
2. A Taller Plant
Add some life to your porch with a plant. Pick one with flowers to add some color or go with a simple green plant. Buy a nice planter that matches the aesthetics of your home. Make sure you buy the plant according to the amount of time you want to spend maintaining it. Also factor in if your porch is shaded or gets a lot of sun. Good options are philodendrons, tree ferns and arums.
3. A Doormat
If your doormat is looking a bit weathered, invest in a new one. Even though it’s not totally noticeable from the street, this small detail completes the look of your porch. It’s one of the first things people see when walking up to your house and it adds a thoughtful touch to the entrance of your home that shows you care.
