Get ready for the very best budget friendly ideas for your Summer front porch. I love making an area beautiful with affordable finds and today were doing that with our front porch.

Summer is here and it’s not too late to spruce up your front porch! with only a few key elements.

Budget Friendly Ideas for Your Summer Front Porch

BEFORE

Just fine before, but to welcome in Summer I wanted to add some cheerful elements.

Above all, when adding these elements keeping the process budget friendly was a must.

Door Decor & Rugs

I used a beautiful basket I found thrifting and ivy from the garden as door decor. Simple and no added cost.

The front door mat HERE and the outdoor rug HERE add an important finishing touch to any outdoor space.

Not only do they stop dirt and debris from entering, they add warmth and texture to the front porch.

Meet our sweet kitty Noodles.

She’s adorable on her own, but extra cute with the cute front porch as her backdrop, don’t you think?

Per usual, as soon as she’s let in the house, she wants out.

Planters

I can’t say enough good things about these planters HERE. They’re a classic shape and the color is great. For the size and quality these planters are priced amazingly. They actually look very much like stone, but are light and easy to move around. I’ll be adding to them this Fall and using them for years to come.

I filled the planters with a mix of faux and real plants. You can find the faux ferns HERE. Did you think they were real?! I’m so excited bout them. I usually out real ferns on either side of our front door, but in the hopes of saving time on watering I went with faux ferns this year. Also, real ferns are expensive.

In Michigan they only last the Summer and because these faux ferns are UV protected I’m hoping these faux ferns will be around in a decade.

You can find the faux blue hydrangea I used for color HERE. So much easier than cultivating real blue hydrangea, and of course more affordable. They look great next to the grey front door.

I hope you found something to help brighten up your front porch and outdoor living spaces this Summer.

Thanks for being here!

    You have inspired me, Maria! Your porch looks fabulous! It is so hot here and I’m spending money on water and time watering, so I think next year I will use faux plants during summer! Thanks for the great idea!!

    Genius! Thanks for the inspiration. I especially love the tip about incorporating potted plants. They did add up to the fresh vibe.

    I love how concise your porch turned out to be! It’s so beautiful that I even stopped for a minute in reading your article, looking at it. It’s wonderful! I really like the colors there and how they are combined, as well as how each element of the decor is combined. Such cool plants, I will definitely take a note of this. It is cool that the rug is combined with the front door. Very cool, you inspired me! Thank you so much for the article, I love your blog, keep doing. And yeah, say hello to your cat!
