I feel like I spend a lot of my time decorating inside, it was time to start working on our porch. I always wanted a big porch, and now I have one. The question is what to do with it!! We don’t have a big budget so I am going to show you 4 low budget high impact ways to add curb appeal.
1-Case in your builder grade door
I really wanted a new door…like really really bad. Our door was a basic metal builder grade door. I started shopping for new doors…but all of the ones I wanted were over $1500 EEEK that was not in the budget. As you can see our front door doesn’t stand out….
And then my husband had the best idea, “what if we case in our door?” Wow what a difference, it looks like a brand new custom door. You can see our full post on how we did this here
2-Plant flower pots
Adding flowers to your porch adds a big impact. They bring in lots of colors and textures making your porch and home more inviting. Planting flowers in pots doesn’t have to be expensive. I reuse my pots each year and plant my own flower (tutorial here) You can also get creative with what you plant your flowers in. I used 2 galvanized pots I bought at a garage sale for $5 this year.
Adding color to your porch really helps to draw people in. We do have a large front porch so I brought in my color using accessories. You may remember my dresser turned bench (post here)….well it has finally found it’s home on our porch. It adds the pop of color I was looking for.
If you don’t have a large porch painting your front door a color is a great option as well. For our door I wanted to go neutral and tie it into the color on our home so I opted to add color through my accessories.
Adding a few fun accessories is a great way to really set your home apart. I like to go minimal on my accessories for our porch so they need to have a big impact like …… our hello sign! This hello sign is the perfect welcome to our guests…and they are super easy to hang with brick clips!!
This hello sign is 29″x23″, our biggest hello yet….making it so you can clearly see it from the road! You can buy them in our Etsy shop here.
I also added this cute pillow to the bench to make it feel cozy and inviting.
