Dress Your Porch In Fall Decor

We’ve selected some of our favorite house plans with large front porches to inspire you to add some decorative flair to your home for the fall and winter season.

Beyond the beauty of a new front porch, it provides extra living space and protection for your front entry from the weather. It can even help lower your summer energy bills by deflecting the sun from entering directly into your home. In the winter, it protects your windows and siding from the snow, wind and rain that can cause your home to age quicker.

This farm house plan features a wraparound porch with Fypon® decorative columns and a balustrade system featuring reinforced baluster rails, newels and porch posts to create a warm and inviting entry that is easy to decorate for the fall and holiday season.

A wraparound porch provides a great place to retreat from the sun, wind and rain. You can turn part of your porch into a cozy sitting area with comfortable seating like rocking chairs and Adirondack chairs painted in rich autumn-inspired colors. Accent this area with colorful seasonal flowers like mums, bright cushions and pillows and lanterns. Don’t forget to decorate your columns and railings. They are the perfect place for wrapping holiday lights, corn stalks and garland.

country house plan
By adding ceiling fans, lights and furniture to your porch you can create a comfortable gathering space that’s great for entertaining and handling guest overflow.

You can add pops of fall color to your yard by placing small groups of pumpkins, bales of hale and seasonal plants placed in rustic pots and baskets along the front of your porch and walkway.

For inspiring porch designs visit our collection of farm house plans, country house plans, craftsman house plans and cottage house plans.

We’d love to see pictures of your autumn and Halloween porches so we can post them on Pinterest.
