Welcome to the Porch Ideas Network


A stylish front porch is designed to not only have massive curb appeal but also be quite functional. Today's porches do not need lots of maintenance either. Selecting the right products can reduce maintenance costs and extend the life of your structure.

First and foremost; however, a front porch should make a statement. No matter the size, a porch, when designed and built well, should add value and complement the architecture of your home.

You will see what we mean when you take a look at these porches by Georgia Front Porch. Let's get started with an amazing "before and after" porch.



Georgia Front Porch Appeal



Before

We start with a beautiful "porch-deprived" two-story home. Adding a front porch to an existing home and making it look like it belongs can be difficult at times. How do you envision a new front porch would change the look of this home?

Every porch has its challenges. The challenge of this porch is readily apparent. Can you see it?

The owners wanted to retain the stairwell window to the left of the front door. To do so, it had to be split to accommodate the porch roof. Although an unusual request, Georgia Front Porch handled the challenge very well as you will see.

Also note the framing for the gable roof over the door and the shed roof over the remainder of the porch. This combination is very popular as it separates the actual entrance from the rest of the porch - a hallmark of what we believe are stylish front porch designs.



After

Quite the transformation! Cedar porch columns on stone pedestals supporting the metal roof along with an exquisite stone porch skirting make for a warm and inviting front porch.

This front porch design dramatically changes the appeal of the entire home.

The traditional tongue and groove porch ceiling adds warmth and charm and along with the recessed lighting and exterior fan, provide a most comfortable place from which to watch the world go by.

The barreled ceiling is also tongue and groove. Note the stone work around the front door and the attractive cedar shakes on the front. Mary and I really like how they incorporated so many natural building materials into the front porch design.

A stylish front porch design considers both flooring, steps, and walkway options also. As you can see, the stone porch floor, steps, and walkway create cohesiveness and creates a nice transition from the outside to the interior of the home.

Another Stunning and Stylish Front Porch Design



This southern stucco home offers no protection from rain or the hot Atlanta sunshine. Another beautiful home that is "front porch deprived", but all is not lost. A little transformation is in order.

This front porch, and home, definitely have the WOW factor! The right front porch design does more than just add extra outdoor living space; it adds a whole new dimension to your home as seen below.

We like how Georgia Front Porch designed the porch steps. Flaring your steps makes your porch seem larger and gives it a little extra pizzazz. This is a design feature that works really well on almost any size porch.

Note how the color of the stone blends in with the home itself. Considering the color of your natural materials is essential to achieving a great porch design.

Portico Appeal



This southern residence has nice brick work but needs not only entry protection but also a little more curb appeal. Not all porches have to be large. You can achieve lots of appeal by constructing either a small porch or portico.

This home's architecture naturally lends itself to a portico. This beautiful new portico designed and built by Georgia Front Porch has an elegant, contemporary design.

The homeowner offered input regarding the roof and the final design features a wonderful barreled ceiling with standing-seam metal roofing. Standing seam metal roofing is very popular as is other types of metal roofing. It lasts a long time with minimal maintenance and comes in a wide variety of colors.

Mary and I really like this specific barreled roof design; it's something you don't see very often. It really sets this portico apart from most others.

Now this is a curb appealing home, portico and all and what we'd say is definitely a fabulous front porch design.
