Add planters

Symmetry is one of the key tricks when decorating your front door. Therefore, you should add two identical planters on both sides. These clusters of vivid hydrangea blooms will add spring flair to your front porch. The setting looks harmonious and visually pleasing, while the fresh colors will wish everyone a warm welcome.

Welcoming wreath

A wreath isn’t only reserved for Christmas decor. We highly recommend you adopt this decor item as a year-round essential. A basic green wreath is a staple piece that you can customize for any season. For spring, you can add Easter-themed adornments to bring a festive vibe.

Colorful mat

Spring is the right time to replace that old and worn mat. Try going bold with your color choice by introducing a lively design to elevate the front door decor. A fun message will put a smile on everyone’s face and make your front porch that much more inviting. This tasteful decor by Laura Beverlin features teal accents as a bold visual statement.

Curated arrangement

You can spruce up your front door for the spring by adding decorative touches that fit your style. Add a chair or a small bench with cushions for a cozy feel. Fun signs will welcome your guests with classiness or enhance the decor with captivating lanterns. 

The rustic spring decor by Liz Marie features a nicely curated arrangement with vintage vibes. The lovely topiaries, blue bike, and antique chair are charming details that make the front door look more alluring.

Thoughtful lighting

Lighting can make a massive difference in the design, so it might be the right time for a fresh update. Replace that old lighting with modern sconces to bring the upscale feel. Whether you prefer the rustic, contemporary, or traditional style, you can always find the right sconce that will complement your outdoor space.
