10 Country Front Porch Decorating Ideas
To me, the front porch screams country! It's like saying "hello, welcome to my farmhouse." The first impression, let's your friends and family know what style your house is and if you are like me then you also think that farmhouse decor is so inviting, giving that happy and relaxed feeling.
1. Reclaimed Wood Wood Planters
I can't say enough about these reclaimed wood planters! Not only are they beautifully designed but they will give your front porch some country flair.
They have a galvanized lining and are made of wood that is reclaimed. These come in a set of two and measure (Sm: 16" x 16" x 20" H), (Lg: 20" x 20" x 21" H).
Plant greenery or flowers in these wood planters to give your house some farmhouse curb appeal with a country feel. These planters are just not for the summer months and can be used all year long, just change out your flowers if you want, to go with each season.
2. Vibrant Colorful Wreath
Don't let the name of this wreath fool you as it's actually named vibrant colorful Spring wreath. To me, this looks like summer, with the bright beautiful flowers that give just the right amount of a country feel. But feel free to use it for Spring and/or Summer.
This wreath is made of twigs, polyester, and plastic and measures 22" diameter.
Your friends and family will feel welcomed with this beautiful display of flowers. Hang this on your front door as the focal point of your country front porch decor.
3. Flower Market Metal Buckets
OMG! I love this set of three flower market buckets and want them for my own front porch! These will bring so much country charm to your front porch and are a must-have.
The three buckets are made of metal and you will get one of each size (Sm: 14" x 14" x 17" H), (Med: 16" x 16" x 20" H), (Lg: 18" x 18" x 25" H). Flowers and greenery not included.
Fill these beautiful buckets with your favorite flowers or plants and place them near your front door. These would even look great for inside farmhouse decor to put by your fireplace and fill with kindling.
4. Pale Metal Bird Bath
At first glance, this looks like a table but it is a bird bath and would look perfect right off your front porch in your front yard. This would be the perfect spot for it, so when you are sitting on your front porch you can get enjoyment from watching your bird friends.
This is safe to be outdoors, is made of iron, and measures 20.5" x 18.5" x 28.5" H and some assembly is needed (plant not included).
This bird bath could also double as a plant stand or side table when you are not using it for the birds.
5. Wood and Metal Cart
Another country front porch decorating idea is this wood and metal cart. Every front porch needs some kind of shelf to display plants and other decorations and this metal cart is perfect for that.
This cart is made of metal and wood, measures 38" x 16" x 31" H.
This cart would be great to display some plants and flowers and the bins underneath are great for storage or even gardening supplies.
6. Fresh Flower Watering Can
This fresh flower watering can is a must-have for any front porch or patio as it will add so much country charm! The metal is distressed, giving it a rustic style.
The watering can is made of metal but is for decorative purposes as it's not suited for water. It measures 19" x 7" x 9" H with a 15" handle height.
This would look great sitting on the wood and metal cart above filled with your favorite dried flowers or greenery.
7. Potted Artificial Lemon Tree
I love to add lemons to my decor as they add a punch of bright color and signal summer. So of course I would add this potted artificial lemon tree to my list of 10 country front porch decorating ideas.
The lemon tree is in a ceramic pot, measures 21.5" x 20.5" x 35" H, and is made of metal, plastic, and fibers.
Display this lemon tree by your front door to add a nice touch of color. If you have the room then two lemon trees, one on each side would look beautiful.
8. Welcome To The Porch Sign
Every front porch decor needs a welcome sign! This welcome sign does just that and says " Welcome to the porch, where wasting time is time well wasted"
This is made of wood, measures 12" x 4" H, 24" x 8" H, 36" x 12" H and is available in your choice of three sizes.
Hang this near your front door to welcome all your friends and family.
9. Three Piece Bistro Set
Your front porch decor needs a small table with chairs and this 3 piece bistro set is perfect to sit and have your morning coffee or tea. This set will add some country charm to your front porch.
The table set is made of iron, measures (table) 27.5" x 27.5" 29.5" H, (chairs) 17" x 21.5" x 35.5" H each (Some assembly is needed).
10. Farmhouse Country Bench
Your farmhouse porch decor is not complete without some kind of bench and I love the looks of this farmhouse country bench!
