Ideas for Winter Porch Decor

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Curb Appeal

Winter can often be considered dreary and take a toll on our property’s curb appeal.  Shoveled walkways, snow-covered shrubbery, and unmanaged snow piles can be quite unattractive.  Porches that are commonly full of greenery and life lose attention and become unmaintained.  Flower baskets, patio chairs, and plants can really rejuvenate the area, but how do you go about that during the winter?  Plants cannot live through the chilly temperatures, and it is no longer an ideal hang out spot during the frigid months.  Though challenging, you can still keep your porch looking great during the winter.  To help, we put together some simple ways to keep your outdoor porch look great during the winter. Let’s take a look!

Plants

Just because its winter does not mean you cannot incorporate greenery anymore.  Using decorative pines and evergreens is a great way to add life back to your porch during the winter.  Plus, they can stay past the holidays and continue to make a powerful statement throughout the chilly season.

Rustic

Try adding different elements of nature that complement the winter season.  You can display your firewood neatly on your porch, add a wreath of whither woods, or incorporate some distressed furniture.  While your porch may not be the go-to hangout spot during the winter months, having some rustic patio furniture is a great way to keep your porch feeling welcoming and inviting. Plus, who knows, maybe you will begin to use it more with a hot cup of coffee and great company.

Seasonal Decor

Adding seasonal decor is another way you can spruce up your porch this season.  Adding holiday welcome mats, decorative items like pine cones and wood bundles, and seasonal patterns like outdoor quilts or curtains can make quite a statement.  Remember, enhancing your porch during the winter is a great way to keep up your curb appeal.

Try to spruce up your porch even during the duller months.  It is an easy way to take pride in your home and enhance your exterior.  The winter can be brutal but do not let that stop you from making your home the best you can.
