In the last decades, homeowners have begun to build their outdoor living spaces in their backyard. However, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) says that many homeowners today are investing in front porches.

Here are some tips for decorating front porches:

Comfort First

Comfortable seating is an essential component of a front porch. Large outdoor floor cushions are also great seating additions. Match the furniture and decor of your front porch with the interiors for a cohesive overall look.


Make the space more comfortable with a rug under the seats. It’s a great way to add a splash of color to the porch since there’s not much room for decoration.

Built-in Seating

Consider a built-in bench for extra seating. Paint it with the same color as the porch to give the illusion of a bigger space.

Outdoor Dining

You can make your space more colorful by adding an outdoor dining area with bright chair cushions. Paint the overhang ceiling the same color for a customized look.

Wind Chimes

Wind chimes can make your porch more relaxing. Choose a couple that has unique designs to add a statement.

String Lights

A couple of string lights can turn your front porch into a magical place. Add some chairs with bright-colored cushions where you can spend time with your family.

Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans would go well in a front porch with tropical-themed decor. Depending on the size of your fan and porch, you can install several.
