1. Layer Door Mats
Layered rugs are a great way to add interest and depth to your front porch. Retire that old, worn welcome mat and replace it with a fresh new trendy mat to welcome your guests! There are a ton of options to go off from so have fun and get creative with your rug and mat pairings.
Just be sure to be aware of the size dimensions so that the bottom one is at least 5 inches larger in width and height than the mat.

2. Display Potted Plants
No brainer, I know. BUT let me introduce you to a new idea for those with no green thumb, a limited budget, and/or a front porch that faces the sun most of the day so your plants die. Some may find this tidbit sacrilegious, but I’m telling you it works. Instead of spending tons of money on real plants, opt for faux outdoor plants instead!
They have some really good ones on Amazon that look realistic and you get a good bit for $11-14! That way, you can have colorful flowers, but without the wilting from too much sun exposure or a not-so-green thumb!
My home faces the sun most of the day unfortunately so I haven’t been able to plant some of my favorite florals such as hydrangeas. But this is a game-changer!
I can now have those beautiful colors at a fraction of the cost. I’m sure they will fade after a couple of seasons, but they are so cost-efficient, that I don’t mind buying a new bunch each Spring.

3. Hang A Spring Wreath
I am LOVING these wreaths on Etsy! They are pricey but there are ones on Amazon for cheaper that have the same look. This ribbon, the floras, and the large monogram are *chef’s kiss*
Front door swags are also making a statement on the trending stats. In addition, they are a good way to add a bit of privacy if you have a window on your door.
4. Buy New Pillow Covers
Each year the sun fades a lot of outdoor pillows and replacing the entire thing can be costly. That’s why I really like the cost-effectiveness of pillow covers. There are so many to choose from on Amazon at a fraction of the cost of an entirely new pillow. You can change them out as the seasons change. Just be aware of size dimensions.

5. Have Fun With Spring Colors and Patterns
Spring is not the time to be afraid of a little color. Have fun with it and look on Pinterest for color schemes and pattern combo Ideas. If you imagine the picture above with just the plaid or just the yellow, it wouldn’t be as interesting. Combining both creatives a beautiful color dynamic that adds interest and leaves an impression!
Combine a solid color and another color that is patterned for a more balanced look. I like the checkered pattern pillows against the solid green.
6. Implement Wicker Baskets
There is something about wicker that is synonymous with Spring. It adds a cozy element and makes me think of picking flowers in a field. Not to get all the sound of music on you but you get the point!
And don’t stop at baskets, wicker furniture, plant holders, etc add to the feel as well.
