I know so many of you are spending a majority of your free time at home nowadays. It’s important to make your home an oasis and a relaxing space that you love during this crazy time! Spring provides the perfect opportunity to introduce some color and beauty to your front porch.

This past weekend I decided enough was enough and I completely tackled the space. Not everything is 100% finished but I’m so happy with the changes that I’ve accomplished! Today, I’ll be sharing 10 easy & beautiful spring porch ideas that I used to update my space and I can’t wait to share all with you.

Change doesn’t have to be hard or complicated. These ideas don’t require you to be a DIY blogger or home renovation expert! That’s the last thing I’d want to throw at you right now.. :) To make these changes easy and doable for everyone I’ve rounded up a TON of affordable and simple spring porch ideas that can overhaul any size front porch or space.

1. Add a Spring Wreath

This is one of the easiest changes that you can make with the biggest impact! There’s something about a seasonal wreath that adds that extra curb appeal & beauty to your space.

My spring wreath hasn’t arrived yet so I’m using one of my favorite green boxwood wreaths as a substitute. A tip that I have regarding wreaths and front doors.. always keep a classic evergreen wreath (whether it be boxwood or something else) on hand for those in between seasonal wreath moments! It’s a great fall back and green wreaths always look fresh and beautiful no matter the season.

2. Hang Your Wreath With a Beautiful Ribbon

An easy update to hanging a wreath is to use a beautiful ribbon. I’m all about details and I think ribbons add that touch of personality. We love hanging our wreaths with a ribbon from the top of the door. (click here for a tutorial) Another way I like to use ribbon is by adding a bow to the wreath. I’m always scouring the internet for new ribbons..

3. Add a Welcome Mat or Rug to Introduce Texture

Nothing like a blast of color or a sweet saying to greet your guests with! There are so many options and styles of door matts and rugs available depending on your preference and needs! You’ll find many affordable rugs in this category that don’t break the bank.

My oval black braided door rug is from Colonial Mills – I love their wide assortment of rugs in different colors and sizes. They are based in the United States and everything is braided in their Rhode Island factory. (Not sponsored!) They also always have major sales which are so nice. Right now they’re currently having a 50% off sale + free shipping so make sure to pay attention to the top of their home page for the promo code. They switch the codes out often.

4. Plant Fresh Flowers Along Walkways

One of the best way to drive curb appeal is to line your walkway with fresh flowers/succulents. Variations of color work best – including greens and other spring tones. Right now many places are offering curbside pickup of flowers and even delivery! Check your local nurseries, Lowe’s, Home Depot’s, etc. If they are closed, you can always check to see if you can order florals/seeds online and get them delivered. Planting is not only therapeutic but so rewarding once done. :)

5. Update Exterior Lighting

Something that many homeowners don’t realize is that updating exterior lighting is an easy task. It doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult! It’s actually quite simple switching outdated lighting for classic lantern styles or some of the new trendy options.

When we first moved into this home we changed all of the exterior lights from the smaller in scale size that was in style in the 90’s to a much more updated larger lantern style. Jeff did it himself and it’s not difficult. There are plenty of tutorials on youtube if you haven’t done something like this before. This is an easy weekend project that can give your home a quick and fresh new look.

When looking for new lighting you may want to look at the newer LED varieties… They’re not only energy efficient but the newer styles are warm and beautiful in tone. I always look for the 2700 Kelvin grade for the warmer, more welcoming glow.

6. Create a Cozy Seating Area

Porches that include a bench or chair/side table are always welcoming. Sometimes I like to have a spot to place things. It’s also nice to have a spot to relax on the front porch during the evenings with a glass of wine. It not only adds a beautiful curb appeal but provides a cozy spot for guests to sit! Lots of great spring porch ideas below.

My affordable chairs and side table came from Homegoods years ago..

7. Introduce Spring Pillows

Another easy way to dress up your porch for Spring is to add strong/colorful statement pillows for your bench or chairs. There are so many affordable options & prints to choose from nowadays.

I opted to keep my classic black & white monogrammed pillows for now but may switch them out for something entirely different for summer!

8. Add a Cozy Throw

I have 2 throws in a beautiful black & white houndstooth pattern that I love draped over my chairs. Throws add just one more layer of texture and welcoming warmth to your home. Throws also add an easy pop of color! I love coordinating my pillows and throws for a more cohesive look.

9. Scatter Baskets, Lanterns, Planters, Hang Flags, and Add Extra Accessories

Adding extra pieces of decor on and around your front porch/patio is a fun way to decorate for Spring! I love adding baskets, planters filled with flowers, lanterns lit up with outdoor candles and even hanging a beautiful flag. I like to switch out the florals for each season and switch up the placement. Recently, I added two faux potted hydrangea trees which flank my front door and you all went crazy for them!

10. Hang a Welcome Plaque

I’ve always wanted to add a welcome plaque to the exterior of my home. I love the personalization factor and the detail they provide. You can either personalize one with your name and address or simply using a special welcoming saying! It’s the perfect solution to filling an empty wall space also. I’ve always hated that open spot just above my chair and now I love the space with my new plaque. If plaques aren’t your thing you can always add large decorative house numbers instead. I love both looks and styles! There are so many options online and this is an easy change with a huge impact.

Shop Plaques/Numbers:

If you’re thinking of freshening up your front porch for the Spring/Summer season I hope that this post on Spring Porch Ideas has helped you! It’s important to remember that everything doesn’t need to be done all at once.. you can always slowly add and update pieces as your budget allows. This is usually how I approach my porch. Transforming the front porch is one of the favorite projects that I look forward to tackling every season. Updates are always appreciated and enjoyed by all!

I’ve also rounded up more of my favorite outdoor decor pieces below!
