Front Porch Styling Tips for Springtime

Give a great first impression and fantastic curb appeal by decorating your front porch for spring. Everyone is looking for more ways to spend time outside, and a once-overlooked area, front entrances are becoming the new place to hang out. And this space is the gateway to your home, making it a great area for you to express your style and personality from the very start.

Here are our springtime tips for front porch style- no matter what form your “front porch” takes.

This front entrance, styled by Instagram influencer Brittany Echols, @sunshine_and_shiplap uses accessories, textures and patterns to bring springtime energy into the space. Although the color palette is muted and soft, she added décor like a leather ottoman, woven rug, and black seating to bring a contemporary edge that complements the natural vibe of the surrounding yard. Our Chilton Hanging Lantern has a crisp textured back design and an airy feeling that enhances the fresh feeling of the area.

Modernize with Black and White

Sit down and visit for a while! Change up a classic porch with a crisp black-and-white color scheme, warm wood floor and columns, and oversized hanging lanterns, giving a contemporary vibe to a traditional setting. Our Squire Hanging Lantern's black and stainless-steel mixed metal frame complements this modern porch design.

Symmetry is Your Friend

Even numbers are key to making your entrance feel larger. First, use a pair of wall lanterns, or even two pairs, to create a stately look. Then, flank the doorway with a couple of pots or planters and a set of benches for a welcoming appeal. Our Walcott Wall Lanterns feature a distinctive vertical frame finished in crisp black with clear glass panels, bringing a contemporary flair to this modern façade.

Nothing Says Springtime like Flowers

Reconnect with Nature

Go eco-friendly by adding organic touches to give your entrance a natural vibe. Materials from the earth like stone and wood, nature-inspired patterns, natural textiles, and loads of greenery all combine to create refreshing and connective spaces. Wood planks in a dark finish accent the stone walls of this contemporary home. A pair of our Ramsey lanterns feature an oversized, elongated frame that mimics the vertical lines of the door.

Revitalize your front door entrance with new outdoor lighting, just in time for spring!
