10 Tips for Rustic Front Porch Décor

Bring life and beauty into all areas of your home. Make your farmhouse front porch your little slice of heaven with our artificial plants. Turn your front porch into a space where you truly want to spend time. With a little bit of care, you could turn it into your favorite room in the house. Imagine turning a space that once was something you pass through into an area where you gather with family, friends, and neighbors. This spring - give your front porch the facelift it deserves with plants that require zero maintenance from you. Our potted plants, hanging baskets, and vertical gardens are a beautiful way to bring nature from your yard and onto your front porch to create an oasis for enjoying the spring weather when it finally comes. Self-contained artificial plants allow you to celebrate the coming of spring and enjoy the warm feelings associated with it much longer. Here are some ways you can effortlessly enhance your front porch this spring.

Decorate your porch with hanging basket plants

Foliage hanging overhead creates a lush, fresh atmosphere. Choose from ferns, geraniums, ivy, and more to add Color and texture to your porch. We especially love hanging basket plants because of how they interact with light. During the day, they add life to your home with consistency, and at night they play with your outdoor and home lighting to create a dreamy, colorful glow. A practical benefit is that hanging plants keep the ground safe for playing with children or clear for dining. There's nothing not to love about these "set it and forget it" home décor pieces.

Fill in large spaces!

Use large rustic plants to make larger rooms feel cozier. Who doesn't dream about a spacious wrap-around porch? Especially if you live in a temperate climate, there's almost nothing more sought after than a home with ample porch space. It's all too easy to envision the lemonade-filled gatherings you will host, the flower boxes you will tend to, and the time you'll spend rocking away on your rocking chair. However, sometimes so much space can feel overwhelming and empty even with the best-laid plans. That's where we come in. A few well-placed large plants such as our five-foot-tall bay leaf topiary are a great way to fill in space that feels rustic yet warm.

Consider using a vertical garden for smaller spaces

Perhaps you have the opposite problem from numbers one and two. Or maybe your porch isn't covered. Perhaps your porch is quite small. Nearly Natural has solutions for everything. Our customers love our vertical planters. These planters stick to a wall and allow home residents to feel the joy of a garden no matter what kind of space they have available. Our triple wall planter will enable you to choose the plants you want to display on your wall. This will be the first thing visitors see and create a beautiful farm stand ambiance. Fill with the same artificial plants from our store or mix and match. Many of our customers switch out plants with the season or occasionally use the planter to store outdoor accessories or gardening tools.

Get creative!

Speaking of thinking outside of the box - we love a customer who gets creative. While our planters are made for holding our beautiful plants, you can also purchase extras to use as containers for umbrellas or canes on your porch. Who wants guests trailing in water from outside? Provide your guests with an attractive receptacle for items they don't want to bring inside. In addition to having many uses, our planters are simply beautiful and can stand on their own for decoration.

Use color

All our products are realistic and high- quality, and because of this, they can blend seamlessly into nature. We love a subtle topiary or fichus, but we also highly suggest adding a pop of Color. That's why one of our most popular items is our new hanging Geranium Basket in red. Whatever Color your house is painted - a pop of hues among the green of your other plants will create the natural, inviting atmosphere anyone would want for their home. So pick a color from our vast selection and have fun with your porch.

Pick plants that can move with you

One of our most popular items is our olive tree. We love our olive trees because of the rustic yet sophisticated feel they give to all spaces. Bring the feeling of Greece or California to your home wherever you live. These plants fit in all styles, from farmhouse to minimalist to French. They are also just at home indoors as they are in your outdoor space. If you see themselves moving or redecorating often, we can't recommend these versatile pieces enough. Choose a plant that can carry with you and bring life to any room - anywhere.

Use plants for privacy

We pride ourselves on the beauty of our plants at Nearly Natural, but that doesn't mean they don't also provide a practical purpose. You may be lucky enough to live in a secluded area, but you also may be in closer proximity to your neighbors. A sizeable opaque fence isn't very friendly, and it isn't beautiful. For added privacy that preserves the beauty of your home, we suggest a foliage-covered fence. With this option, you won't sacrifice aesthetics to enjoy privacy. You can also use this to border off parts of your home to keep animals and children safe. Unlike traditional fences - our foliage-covered bars look like a design choice - not just a barrier.

Don't be afraid to pick a theme

As we said before - we love a creative customer. Use our quality products to turn your front porch into a French garden or a tropical paradise! On our website, you can search by theme or room. Want to create an English garden on your porch? Search for boxwood and roses. Want to make a rainforest? Search for ferns and birds of paradise. Create a California oasis with our palm collection or a mountain escape with pines and spruces. Your vision can come alive with Nearly Natural. Our products can withstand all weather, but we offer holiday-specific and seasonal offerings if you want to decorate with plants for various times of year.

Think small

While your first step should be to think about the permanent plants that will live on your porch - a second should be to fill in your patio with homey, beautiful details. If you plan on spending time sitting or dining on your porch, we recommend putting smaller arrangements on surfaces. Unlike natural flowers, our silk flowers won't die or attract insects. They make a table into an inviting dining table when used as a centerpiece and make a side table into a thing of beauty. These also make excellent housewarming gifts and can travel to brighten up any room.

Our 100% silk flowers last can rival the beauty of traditional, more expensive florists. So why not create romance and magic with something that lasts? Make a special day at home even more magical with something that will last for seasons and create memories that last a lifetime.
