When a hot summer day rolls around and you have time to relax, there’s nothing better than sitting on the porch. Porches are meant for summertime, so don’t forget to decorate yours! Here are some easy ideas for porch decor.
Use a variety of colors and materials.
You don’t want your porch looking like an eyesore, so use different colors and materials to create an overall look that you love. If you have wooden furniture, then give it a warm touch with throw pillows and blankets in complementary colors. For concrete inlays, hang brightly colored flags to tie the space together.

Include a cool container or plant.
Containers or plants can help make a space pop. If you have a small yard or just want to brighten up the area near your porch, put something pretty out there that also brings color.
Decorate with string lights.
Use string lights in the evening when it gets dark to give your porch a soft glow and make it feel more magical.
Put out candles if it’s windy outside.
When it’s windy outside (or even if it isn’t), using candles can create a romantic atmosphere for you and your friends.
Create a welcoming atmosphere
Create a welcoming atmosphere by hanging a chalkboard welcome sign from your porch ceiling. String up some lights that change color in a soothing sequence.
Hang A Swing
Hang an old swing from the ceiling of your porch.
Plant Some Flowers
Plant some flowers in pots, set them on the floor next to your front door. This will make it look like you’re sitting on the floor at the foot of the steps.
Attach a small table
Attach a small table or box to one of the columns on your porch. You can use this as a coffee table or even just set a glass case on top of it that holds all of your favorite things. This way, it’s kind of like having a bookshelf or storage unit just outside your door.
As you can see, there are plenty of porch decor ideas that will help you to show off your personality while also adding some style to the exterior of your home. Best of all, many of these decorating approaches are well within the reach of any homeowner. All it takes is a little bit of thoughtfulness, and the end result will be more than worth it!
