Make Your Front Porch Fancy for Fall

Front porch steps

“They were very helpful, with clear communication regarding any delays (eg, bad weather). They were able to match materials, creating a great outcome. We have been very satisfied with the quality of work and their commitment to customer satisfaction. We further appreciate their support in some of the ancillary services to the deck repair, which made the process much more convenient. We also took quotes for additional deck replacement/expansion, as we would be happy to use his services again in the future.” – Ken, Eagleville

If you’ve commissioned Harmony Decking to install a deck or porch for your home, you’re already well on your way to having the best looking house on the block. There are, however, a few things you can do to really ramp up the curb appeal—especially during this beautiful time of year! Take a look at our suggestions for a cozy, inviting front porch:

Front door – A uniquely colored door is definitely an eye-catching feature on any home. Is your current entryway a dismal brown or dull grey? Why not add a splash of color to help your house stand out? Opting for a cheerful shade of red or bright blue makes for a much more welcoming sight. For a fun project with the kids, you could also dress your door up with a homemade seasonal wreath that will delight and impress your guests.

Furniture – Setting up a rocking chair or porch swing not only lends your home a cozier look, it provides a great little spot for relaxing and enjoying the fresh air. Add a small table to set mugs of cocoa and dog-eared books, and you’ve got yourself a front porch paradise.

Fence decorations – It may not be Christmas quite yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t string some beautiful lights on your porch fence! This serves the dual purpose of lighting the way for visitors and making your house a twinkling, cheerful sight. Festive garlands are a nice touch, too!

Flora – This is a great time of year to get creative with porch décor: Think pots of mums in autumn hues, carved pumpkins, and gnarled, bumpy gourds. The fall season provides gorgeous natural inspiration that you can use to dress up the front of your home. If you haven’t already, take a trip to the pumpkin patch and pick out a few beauties!

On a final note, make sure your front porch looks neat and well-maintained before you even begin with decorations; if it requires a fresh coat of paint or repairs to damaged areas, tackle those issues first. Don’t hesitate to contact Harmony Decking about deck or porch installation—we’d be happy to help create the outdoor living space you’ve been dreaming of!
