8 budget-friendly spring front porch decor ideas | Schlage

Bring back the art of porching and create the perfect outdoor oasis.



The art of porching is quickly coming back in style with many homeowners creating a space that is both an extension of their style and perfect for entertaining or relaxing. Make the most of your front porch with these budget-friendly decor ideas you can enjoy all spring and summer.

1. Add a comfy seat

The perfect front porch starts with a comfy place to sit. Although patio furniture can be pricey, there's plenty of DIY inspiration across the web to help you get the perfect look for the right budget. We're especially loving this DIY outdoor daybed for starters.

2. Unique planters

Head to your local re-sale store or even your garage or attic to find a unique piece that can act as a new planter. We love this idea from DIY Network that uses an old tricycle to display succulents in this outdoor space.

3. DIY planters

If the vintage look isn't quite your style, try building your own unique planter instead. We're loving this hexagon planter idea from The Home Depot.
