Is your porch ready for fall? Whether you have a sprawling patio or a modest stoop, autumn is the perfect time to decorate your porch. After all, it is the most visible part of your home.
From seasonal wreaths to decorative gourds, there are countless ways to spruce up your doorstep. We’ve gathered the top décor tips of 2020 to help you redecorate your porch for fall.
Take a look!
Add a cozy seating area to your front porch if space allows. Enjoy the crisp fall air with friends on an upholstered bench or outdoor sofa.
If your porch is more compact, a single wicker egg chair is both comfy and stylish. Sit back, relax and sip a hot cup of cider. After all, that’s what fall is all about!
Snug Seasonal Pillows
If you’re lucky enough to have a covered porch or patio, add some seasonal pillows to your outdoor seating area. Opt for cozy fabrics and warm colors. Cable-knit throws and pillows are reminiscent of sweater weather, and fall is the perfect time to mix and match textures.
Just because the days are getting darker, doesn’t mean you need to choose deeper hues. Bright colors can easily be fall-appropriate if you choose the right shades. Look for oranges, reds, and natural greens.
Wintery Wall Art
As the seasons change, so should your art! With the winter months approaching, it’s an excellent opportunity to switch up your artwork both inside and outside.
If your patio is protected from the elements, hang a large wall print right next to your front door! For homeowners who live in a region with less-than-predictable weather, hang a canvas in your entryway so it’s the first image guests see when they enter your space. One of our favorite fall-themed pieces is this gorgeous multi-panel canvas depicting New England.
A Porch Filled with Pumpkins
It’s no secret that pumpkins are a popular porch pick for fall. Choose pumpkins and squashes both small and large to decorate your doorstep.
White pumpkins compliment a modern exterior, whereas more traditional homes would benefit from the classic orange color. If you want something a little funkier, there are plenty of offbeat pumpkins in a variety of odd shapes and shades. Pro tip: Luminous lanterns are the perfect addition to a pumpkin-filled porch.
The Classic Wreath
There’s nothing more classic than a holiday wreath. Wreaths don’t just come in pine and holly anymore, there are lots of autumn-themed wreaths to choose from.
A Welcoming Welcome Mat
Doormats are an easy way to change up your décor with the seasons. From friendly fall phrases to leafy autumn patterns, there are tons of adorable and affordable doormat options. Keeping a welcome mat on the porch also helps to minimize dirt and debris from entering your home, which is imperative as the seasons get harsher.
Try to match your mat to the overall aesthetic of your home. If you live in a contemporary abode, look for a clean, simple design. On the opposite side of the spectrum, rustic homes should have a welcome mat that matches their country-chic appearance.
A Perfect Time for Plants
Potted plants are great for any porch size! Plus, there are tons of plants that can withstand wintery weather. Place pots on either side of your doorway to add some natural beauty. Consider winter flowering pansies or Chinese lanterns!
If you live somewhere where the weather is particularly harsh, you can hang a piece of fall-themed botanical wall art right inside your entryway instead.
Light Up Your Life
As the days get darker, you want your porch to get brighter! Making sure you have enough artificial light is essential when the nights are especially long.
For the trendy minimalist, we suggest firefly string lights. If you want a softer look, choose a lantern-style outdoor lamp. Standing porch lights are an excellent option for homeowners with space to spare.
