Spring Front Porch Ideas: How to Freshen Up Your Porch for Spring

Looking for spring front porch ideas? Today we’re sharing simple tips for freshening up for your porch for the season!

We’re just starting to see signs of spring here. The weather is warming up (some days anyway!), we’ve planted some new garden bed flowers, and the birds and bees have started to reappear. And who doesn’t want to bring some of that spring cheer to our homes as well? I love refreshing my home for the season, and one of the first places I like to refresh for spring is my front porch!

I love to decorate seasonally, but I’m not a fan of going overboard. A few flowers and some seasonal touches are all you need to create a beautiful spring front porch. And rather than just show you what I’ve done this year, I’m going to give you some of my favorite spring front porch ideas. All of them pretty, and all of them simple!


Give the porch a good cleaning

Our porch really takes a beating in the winter since it’s not completely covered. The first thing I do is sweep up all the leaves and then hose it off to get rid of all the dust. I usually give the doors and lights a good wipe down as well. It’s amazing what just a good cleaning can do!


Add a spring wreath to the front door

One thing I always do is add a spring wreath to the door. There’s simply no better way to say ‘spring’ than with a pretty spring wreath to greet your guests!

This year I went with a stunning wreath made of faux lavender. I love the color palette and of course because it’s faux, I don’t need to worry about it not lasting all season long.

Another option if you don’t want to go the wreath route is to create a basket of flowers or greenery on your front door. This look is unique and makes such a great statement! How adorable is this Adirondack basket filled with white flowers? If I had a single door rather than a double this is a look I’d definitely be trying!

Refreshing the flowers or plants on your porch is definitely a must! I don’t know about you but once winter is over I find my porch is full of dead flowers and empty pots. Simply buying a few new spring flowers will do wonders for the look of your porch.

Last year I found some pale lavender Impatiens and those set the tone for the whole porch. I loved the soft color and Impatiens are a great choice because they are inexpensive and long lasting. My favorite small planters are these aged-looking ones above. And these new ones from Pottery Barn are so adorable!


Another version was this large vintage olive basket full of white azaleas, which I combined with a smaller blue hydrangea. I like to mix larger pots or planters with groupings of smaller ones so there are different heights.


Replace a faded doormat with something fresh

I love a traditional and timeless doormat that can last through the seasons, but you could absolutely do something fun here, too!

Layering a fun doormat over an indoor/outdoor rug is also a really cute look!


Optional: Add statues, lanterns or other fun decor

Decorating outdoors doesn’t need to be much different from decorating indoors and adding lanterns, statues or other items brings some warmth and interest. Here I included some of my favorite lanterns.


For this year’s porch I added some cute bunny statues. I love their whimsical feel – they make me happy every time I walk through the door!
