Front Porch Designs for Colonial HomesMarie from New Hampshire writes:
I have a basic two story colonial house with five windows on top and four on the bottom with the door in the middle. Right now we have just the basic builders one step concrete porch which I really don't like at all.
I have one landscaper come out and suggested replacing it with a red brick with concrete slab on top.
Or he said a pressure treated wood step and porch would look good and then paint it. He also said we could do granite step and porch.
I don't have a lot of room to work with (about 6 ft. wide by 4 ft. depth).
My house is light beige siding with hunter green shutters and cream trim. I am really confused as to what would look best. Do you have any ideas?

Marie, thanks for writing us. The suggestions you've been given are fine.
The porch floor/steps are a main component but so are the roof and columns.
