How to get your porch prepared for the fall season


The breeze outside is becoming crisp due to the change of the season. The leaves are falling and the sun sets early. This season is filled with excitement from wearing cozy cardigans to pumpkin picking and a nice cup of warm apple cider. Fall is also the season where many begin to pay attention to the way that their porch is decorated. Hanging wreaths and adding pumpkins to this space can really add an elegant touch and a pop of color to your porch this season.


Though, adding small decor such as a nice wreath or a pumpkin next to the door may seem like all that can be done, there are many other ways that you can bring the fall season outdoors.

Tips on how to get your porch prepared for the fall season:


  • Choose colors wisely: It is crucial to use colors abundantly this season in order to make your front porch come to life and bring attraction. Autumn is filled with beautiful hues such as: cherry red, burgundy, mustard yellow, and bright orange. Do not just add a splash of these colors here and there. Be sure to make a statement. This can be done by adding fall related decorative pillows to chairs, adding rugs, door mats, etc. 
  • Use accent pieces: No one likes to walk through a cluttered mess when they step out on their porch. By adding a few small accent pieces such as pumpkins or halloween/thanksgiving decor, this can really set the tone for this season and make your porch look fall ready. 
  • Try candles and lanterns: Want to ignite your front porch with a subtle glow? Use lanterns or candles. They can light up the porch at night time. Also, try carving pumpkins and putting candles inside. This can be a fun fall activity for all while also making your porch look good. 
  • Foliage: Who doesn't think of foliage when they think of fall? Adding branches around the door, leaves, and hay can really set the tone for the fall season on your porch.
