2018 Porch Trends for Spring

At Thayer Homes we love a big front porch. All of our craftsmen style homes feature large front porches to encourage time with family, friends and neighbors. Creating an inviting and beautiful deck for everyone to enjoy doesn’t have to be hard, take a look at our list of the top porch trends for spring!

  1. Bright Outdoor Rugs

A great outdoor rug is the key to creating a cozy and inviting front porch. Brighten up your porch for spring by choosing a rug with vibrant colors. Outdoor rugs are much more durable than an indoor rug and will keep your porch looking beautiful all season long.

2. Our Dining

One trend we’re into right now, is to bring the dining room outside. Find a great wood table to gather around when the weather is nice. Opt for natural looking wood or metal elements for a table that will stay on trend for years to come.

3. Mix-n-match Planters

Add different color planters to create a fun and colorful porch this spring. Combine similar colors to create a cohesive look, such as blues and greens like the photo below. Fill the planters with your favorite flowers or durable succulents.

4. Succulents

Succulents are growing ever popular due to their easy maintenance and durability. The key to succulents is to keep it minimal. Whether you’re using small succulents or large, less is more.

5. Funky Pillows

Show your personality by adding some bright and fun throw pillows to your outdoor seating. Save money by purchasing simple outdoor seating from your neighbors on apps like OfferUp or LetGo. Splurge on new outdoor throw pillows or seating cushions and add a personal touch to the used furniture.

6. Ambient Lighting

Great lighting can make all the difference. Create ambient lighting by adding lanterns and string lights to your porch. Whether you decide to use real candles or flameless LED candles, lighting is the final touch to bring your outdoor space together.
