The walkway, porch and front door are the first things people see when they come, and this is your chance to create a good first impression. Don’t neglect these areas and decorate them no less thoroughly than the inner areas! There’s a very cool idea to make these spaces welcoming: decorate them with planters. How to do that? Here are some ideas.
Symmetrical Front Door Planters
Symmetrical front door planters are sure to give your porch a more and elegant formal look. Consider the style of your front porch and the colors while choosing the planters: match them with the door, with the style and choose what to grow. For example, if you have a shiny black door, matching planters will give your porch special chic, and to refresh such a look, you may use some greenery and a neutral rug. If it’s a farmhouse porch, try vintage lamps and wooden or metal planters to create an ambience. Want a bright accent for the porch? Prefer bold and lush blooms planter or go for citrus trees even.
If you want a more casual feel for your porch, mix and match the planters or go for planters only in one side and no planters in the second. You may try a single and large planter with a statement plant you like – with a laconic door you’ll get a very contemporary and fresh look. Make different planters to frame the door but plant more or less the same inside – only greenery, only cacti or only succulents to create a more cohesive look. If you have enough space, one planter may be substituted with a whole plan stand with various types of greenery and blooms.
