With warmer weather on the horizon, we are all looking forward to spending more time enjoying the outdoors. One space to focus on is our front porch. So let’s look at 17 inviting spring front porch ideas.
Are you ready to decorate your front porch for spring? These 17 pretty spring front porch ideas will have you itching to add spring touches to your porch.
Whether your front porch is small ~ like mine ~ or large, there is something so nostalgic about a front porch.
Our front porches and entries are the first thing our neighbors and guests see. Why do we love a pretty front porch?
- a place to sit out front in a rocking chair with a tall glass of sweet iced tea
- enjoy the morning newspaper
- welcome the kids home from school
- wave at the passing neighbors is an old tradition
- listen to the birds chirping in the morning from your flower~filled front porch
- enjoy a glass of wine in the evening on a comfortable porch swing
I have a confession: we don’t have much of a front porch.
No room for a rocking chair or a porch swing.
No room for a farmhouse table to place my glass of iced tea.
No room for a sign or rugs or benches.
It’s the one major thing I would change about our home. I have dreams about front porches.
But I do love to drool over other people’s front porches and take whatever ideas I can. Any little thing for a spring “front porch” is better than nothing.
WHAT TO INCLUDE ON A SPRING FRONT PORCH
What do you think the perfect spring front porch should have?
- comfortable seating
- flowers and greenery
- tables for drinks or a book
- hanging baskets
- a porch swing
- a wreath on the front door
- something vintage
I found most of these ideas on Pinterest and pinned them to my Outdoor Spaces board.
For a couple of examples, I went straight to some blogger friends who I knew would have great spring front porch ideas.
Even though we don’t have a front porch, I still try to create a welcome spot at our front door.
I have taken away some great ideas for our limited space. All these front porch ideas can also be used for a patio or terrace.
Ready to see my suggestions? Let’s step outside and look at all the pretty porches.
FLOWER POTS ON THE SPRING FRONT PORCH
One thing that every front porch needs is pretty flowers. The spring front porch of my friend Coco of The Crowned Goat is adorned with beautiful flower pots. Hydrangeas and petunias are the show stoppers.
The other thing a front porch needs is comfy seating. Coco uses white wicker as a love seat, table and chair.
SOUTHERN COASTAL FRONT PORCH
My friend Tracey of Porch Daydreamer has one of the prettiest porches. Tracey and I met at Haven and hung out in Charleston one year.
Tracey changes her covered porch for the different seasons. This spring/summer version has plenty of seating anchored by a beautiful rug.
Don’t you love the porch swing? All those pillows make for comfy relaxation.
Lots of hanging ferns and palms with flowers make this such a beautiful place to enjoy from a morning with coffee to evening with wine.
ROCKING CHAIRS ON THE PORCH
Two simple rocking chairs on this spring front porch welcome you to “sit a spell” (Southern saying). This spring front porch from Beth of Home Stories A to Z gets its interest from the pop of blue.
Touches such as rugs and pillows give a front porch a warm and welcoming feeling. Add the pop of blue in the side table and this porch feels like an outdoor living space.
Everyone loves rocking chairs. Find some at an estate sale or flea market or grandma’s attic like Southern State of Mind.
FARMHOUSE TOUCHES AND A PAINTED DOOR
This is one big front porch. The size allows for pieces of furniture that give it a lovely “living room” feel. The first thing I notice is the beautiful blue front door. It’s a showstopper.
What gives this spring front porch from Susan of Saw, Nails and Paint warmth is the addition of a small dresser. The galvanized pails and watering cans add a great farmhouse vibe.
A door hanger also adds more interest to the door as well as a pop of color.
USE BLACK AND WHITE ON THE FRONT PORCH
When your large front porch is a blank slate, where do you begin? Get advice from Martina at The Lived in Look for starting from scratch. I especially love the black lantern and the black and white throw blanket.
MIX COLORS AND PATTERN
Mixing patterns and colors outside is just as impactful on a front porch as it can be inside.
I love how Heather of Southern State of Mind mixed black and white pillows and flower pots with the blue chinoiserie~style garden stool.
The vintage table adds charm and a place for more planters with flowers. The deep cushioned seats on the rattan chairs provide comfy seating to enjoy this space.
THE ULTIMATE PORCH SWING
Who wouldn’t love to take a nap on a spring afternoon on this large porch swing?
Doreen of The Art of Everyday Living has created an inviting place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. I love the rope hangers. The bright blue pillows and stripe throw add to the pretty setting.
A pop of green in the plant stand adds texture and the blue garden stool a place to set down a drink.
ROCKING CHAIR AND VINTAGE PIECES
Once again, seating is so important on a front porch. Ann of On Sutton Place uses a blue check pillow in her spring front porch setting.
Green ferns add natural color. The wicker table gives a place for a few vintage containers with flowers. This is such a nice spot to enjoy the front porch.
SIGNS ON THE PORCH
If you love signs of any sort, use them on your front porch. Signs come in several different styles and set a mood for your front porch.
ADD A BEAUTIFUL NEW RAILING TO YOUR SPRING PORCH
We all love before and afters. This spring front porch renovation by Chica and Jo takes you step~by~step through a front porch do~over. The element I loved most was the new DIY porch railing.
SPRING FRONT PORCH IDEA: PROFUSION OF FLOWERS
Using different colors in flowers in pots is almost a must for a spring front porch. Obviously, how much sun or shade your porch gets will determine the variety. Our front door faces west, so that is always a major consideration.
SPRING FRONT PORCH WITH A BLUE CEILING
Blue ceilings are traditional on front porches in the South. Add some luscious blue hydrangeas and comfortable seating. You’ll have a beautiful spot like this one on a small cottage.
CREATE A NOSTALGIC LOOK WITH VINTAGE ITEMS
Combining vintage finds like this bicycle, galvanized pitcher, old door and stool struck just the right tone for a spring front porch. Thanks to Sarah Joy of Sarah Joy Blog for this nostalgic idea.
NAVY BLUE FRONT DOOR
This navy blue front door with a matching doormat from Nesting with Grace creates a warm and welcoming setting.
Last year I bought this navy and white plaid rug for our front door. It will be back this year.
FRONT PORCH IN BLACK, WHITE AND GREEN
I love this clean black, white and green palette from Suzy at Worthing Court.
FRONT PORCH BARN IN RED AND BLUE
If you build a barn, they will come. This brand~new “surburbarn” got a fun front porch design with metal furniture and a red and blue color palette.
