With these budget-friendly décor ideas, you’ll be able to enjoy your outdoor space all spring and summer.
If your house alone just isn’t enough for you to show off your style, if you need the perfect space for entertaining or relaxing, look no further than your front porch. With these budget-friendly décor ideas, you’ll be able to enjoy your outdoor space all spring and summer.
2. Make alternate arrangements
Going vertical is an excellent alternative to a regular planter. Jenna Burger Design gives us tips for creating our own wall-hung pallet garden that still lets you grow your favorite flowers, herbs and other plants in colorful pots.
3. Consider artificial options
If you’re worried about keeping plants alive, we have another option that’s as gorgeous as it is artificial. As you outfit your porch with furniture – more on that in a moment – consider plant-inspired and floral-patterned fabrics. Pillows, rugs and wall art can give even the brownest of thumbs a natural feel. Try this tutorial from Home Stories A to Z for making an easy pillow cover for your porch furniture.
4. Brighten the front door
There's no better way to say goodbye to winter than with a fresh coat of bright paint on your front door. This project can be completed in a single afternoon. It's an easy way to give yourself a cheerful welcome every day. Check out our door painting tips to make this project as easy as possible.
6. Hang out with style
When you think spring wreaths, your first mental image is probably round and flower-covered. Don’t box yourself in. Two Twenty One made a jute-wrapped monogram wreath that is both budget-friendly and stylish.
7. Add a comfy seat
Some of us at Schlage love the look of the hanging daybed but don’t have the room to pull it off. That’s why we’re fans of The Merrythought’s DIY hanging lounge chair. If you’re trying to capture a Bohemian modern aesthetic in your home, this is a great project for you.
8. Have fun with fabrics
To soften a concrete, wood and metal porch with a hard, cold feel, turn to fabrics. Outdoor rugs add color, are comfortable under foot and come in so many sizes, you should easily find one that suits your style and needs. A plain mat can be spruced up easily, as Design Improvised shows us in this DIY outdoor rug tutorial.
9. Don’t forget about Fido
You aren’t the only one who wants to enjoy the great outdoors. Wouldn’t It Be Lovely shows how to make a sturdy DIY dog bed so even the biggest pooch feels welcome on your front porch.
