Front Porch Ideas

Front porches are a statement of the South. And if we know anything about living in the South, we know that a front porch is more than just a decorative enhancement. Front porches are made for rocking, lounging, and enjoying company. A great front porch has comfortable seating, somewhere to place your sweet tea, and enough character to set your house apart from your neighbors’.

If you’re looking for some front porch ideas for your home, look no further. Here are some of our favorite front porches that we’d be happy to kick back and relax on any day of the week!

The gorgeous greenery on this front doorstep is so welcoming and bright. Paired with quintessential rocking chairs shutters that match the door and lantern (here), this front porch definitely gets our seal of approval.

Christmas Wonderland

A perfect front porch idea for the holiday season (it always comes up sooner than you think!)—this home makes beautiful use of the windows by placing wreaths in each one. Who wouldn’t want to snuggle up on this front porch with a glass of hot cocoa and a blanket?

Southern Classic

We love how large and open this front porch is, complete with its grand entrance, but what really draws us to this front porch idea is the symmetry. Hanging ferns, columns, and lanterns keep the building’s balance, making it a true work of art. And with those natural wooden rocking chairs?#Swoon.

Open Invitation

The open concept of this porch is equally as gorgeous as it is innovative. The homeowners turned the front porch more into an outdoor room—a unique choice that makes spending time in the great outdoors a lot more comfortable!

Modern Muse

This front porch inspiration has us wanting a home makeover ASAP. The modern feel provided by the clean lines and monochromatic palette doesn’t feel too cold like some contemporary homes. The bold hanging lantern in the doorway lends a chic vibe to the space, luring us to take a seat ›on the couch. It’s calling our names!
