Celebrate the change of season by decorating your front porch with the colors, elements, and plants that show off fall in all its glory. Create a picturesque fall porch using the following ideas:
Focus on Natural Elements
Add interest to your fall porch by focusing on the differences in texture that happen when you group bales of hay with pumpkins in varying shapes and sizes, and gourds that are both bumpy and smooth, layered with mums in rustic wooden baskets. This display’s contrasting colors also add punch to your porch, especially when viewed from the street. Other natural elements to consider include dried cornstalks and leaves.
Oversized Welcome Signs
Oversized welcome signs, either homemade or Etsy bought, are a great way to decorate your fall porch. These signs look stunning surrounded by pumpkins and colorful mums. You can dress it up for the holidays using strings of white or colored lights. Pinterest offers great advice for creating your own welcome and other versatile signs that can be used inside or out.
As the days get shorter and the nights longer, a need for lighting is created. If your outside lighting is currently limited to one porch light at the front door, add more lighting such as landscape or motion-detection lighting to your home, ensuring no one trips or falls in the dark. Lighting also allows you to enjoy your fall porch well until the midnight hour.
New Entry Doors
One of the first things people see when they look at a home is the entry door. Look for a door featuring durability, efficiency, and good looks. Remodeling Magazine’s 2017 Cost vs. Value Report revealed that replacing an entry door is one of the best ways to increase home value. Steel entry doors show a 90.7% return on investment. Make sure to choose a door that complements your home’s architectural design.
