cool front porches

If you have a small porch and just some space to decorate, what’s better to choose? The most common thing on each porch is greenery, so choose your favorite plants and decorate your porch with them using original planters. In case you have some more space, add a couple of chairs or some bench or seat that corresponds the style of your porch. In case you have a rustic porch, take a watering can, old boots, vegetables to decorate the porch. A rug is also a part of décor, and you can make a very original one – or of cork. Besides, if your house is done in dark tones adding some logs or reclaimed wood decor could warm things up. For different holidays you could hand an interesting wreath on your front door or add several garlands. You can also use some seasonal decor if you like to change things often. Look at the ideas below and get inspired!
