PLANTER IDEAS FOR HOME ENTRANCE

PLANTER IDEAS FOR HOME ENTRANCE

To give your house a nice pop of color, nothing is more attractive than a beautiful plant that can enhance the look and give life to your front house or the entrance door. Everyone wants a beautiful front porch that displays a variety of natural colors as if you are walking through a bouquet of flowers to arrive at your front door. We all want a slice of nature to be a part of our urban homes, so what better way than to plant the right plants in the perfect way? The best way is to get the plants that are low-maintenance and not seasonal.  Few types are listed below to decorate your home.

Types of plants for your front door:

  • Boxwood Shrubs
  • Bottlerush Shrubs
  • Pittosporum Tenuifolium
  • Knockout Rose
  • Geranium
  • Gardenia
  • Azalea
  • Ferns
  • Arborvitae
  • Spider plant

How to choose the perfect planter for your house?

Plants are the perfect way to give life to a place you think is dull and needs some color. To achieve this, the first thing you should do is choose a unique and elegant planter that is big enough to catch the eye. After that, choose some floral or shrubs to add to those planters. If you have hot sunlight coming directly to your front entrance then the perfect choice would be to add some shrubs, bushes, arborvitae, lavender (for color) and bottlerush shrubs.  All of the previously mentioned plants are perfect for an open porch because they need full sunlight. Another floral combination that I recommend is to mix White Victorian planters with some floral plants, like Azalea, which can give the perfect look to your front door.

Where to place your planters outside of your house?

Many people think that different plants and planters will make for a more colorful setting, but in truth, it will not be as pleasing to the eye. When choosing planters for your front door, opt for identical plants and planters for each side of the door to make your doorway look attractive and aesthetically pleasing. Your plants being parallel and identical to each side of the porch will make for a smoother-flowing and easy-on-the-eyes entrance that will make your house incredibly inviting.

Another style you can go for is place planters in odd groups with mix of greens and colors for each side.
