Top 16 Porch Design Trends


Modern Farmhouse

We know many of you love modern farmhouses, and for a good reason. We all love the cozy, homey vibes the wood accents bring. There's just something so familiar with this style trend. One of our favorite tips for enhancing the beauty of this rustic-inspired home entrance space is to add olive trees on the side of the front door. Not only are the olive trees trendy right now, but they bring an aura of the Mediterranean that can't be replicated in many climates. It is challenging to grow an olive tree and have olives sprouting. Luckily, our outdoor, safe olive trees have faux olives that look so real you'll want to pick at them.

Midcentury Modern

If your design aesthetic is more mid-century modern, then an open porch might be the better option. When thinking about front porch furniture ideas, add furniture with natural materials and a clean color palette that looks simple. Perhaps the most distinct feature of mid-century modern design is nature. If your patio has natural elements such as trees or plants, this will help keep the aesthetic. Consider using planters that can juxtapose natural materials such as textured or tripod planters. Even if you crave some flowers, try adding faux flowers in a modern planter; this way, you can keep the same look even for summer. Enthusiast of this home décor style are fans of snake, shrubs, olive, and perennials. Consider using artificial plants to ensure they look perfect year-round without maintenance.

There's no place like home. And rustic home décor living will have you feeling homey all the time. If you have a small space, you might be looking for some small porch ideas; need not worry, you can still achieve your dream look even with a reduced area. Florals for spring make rustic-inspired homes ready for spring. Add florals or plants such as shrubs to a wooden planter that adds a cozy, warm touch. Don't forget about the wreath! Add one that can bring color, welcoming all guests with a friendly greeting. We recommend going for warm, subtle colors like brown, grey or black with some neutral colored seat cushions for outdoor furniture. Set the scene, bring the intimate feeling of a café with these distressed lanterns that can house a candle.

You might not be in the "trendy" style decors of today. Your personality has a classic vibe, and you'd like to reflect that in your outdoor patio. For spring, there's nothing more traditional than florals. Add a floral spring-inspired wreath to the front door and welcome all guests with a warm greeting. To enhance your entrance's beauty, we recommend using some topiaries that deliver a fresh, polished look. Get some patio chairs and place two at each side for a cohesive look and feel. For a bit of pop of color, curate with some flowers in a pot. These timeless ideas will brighten your home during the new season.

When you think of vintage, renaissance and not trendy pops into mind, but vintage can be just as cool as any modern style. Especially with the rising popularity of grand millennial décor style, many look for that homey feel that is familiar and reflects your style décor. Opt for an eclectic style with your vintage aesthetic, but don't mistake it for looking messy by using too much color. Think of it as a refined boho style with a bit of pop of color. For example, you can look into adding colorful seats from an antique shop or flea market and then pair them with a woven rug rich in color and texture. For the seat cushions, look for some floral patterns, don't be scared of color, stick to a color scheme; it makes things a lot easier. Once you have the main ticket items, fill in those bare corners of the home with oversized pots and colorful blooms with vines spilling over the large planters. This creates an eye-pleasing porch rich in hues and textures.


One of the fastest-growing style trends and for a good reason. Forget about the hippie days! We're talking more Tulum vacation vibes. Look for outdoor safe jute rugs and woven accents. For a little more color, pair with textiles rich in texture and hues. Look into hanging plants to add on top of furniture and transport yourself to the jungle effortlessly. Recreate the rainforest look with some green, always perfect outdoor faux plants. You might be thinking that succulents are the only types of plants for boho styles but there many others that complement this trend. For example, you can try displaying traveler's palm, olive tree, Dracaena, or snake plants for a fun look. Don't be scared that these faux plants look fake; you can make fake plants look more real.
