Great Front Porch DesignsThe best front porch designs have several traits in common: architectural compatibility, functionality, and overall appeal. Mary and I call it harmonizing, that is, matching the architecture of your porch with that of your home.
A porch's functionality should be an integral part of the design too.
No matter the size, every porch can provide some refuge from the weather, space for relaxing or perhaps just a shelf for holding packages while you unlock the front door.
Porches naturally exude warmth and charm when they become an extension of your personality and style. After all, a porch is like a book cover to your home.
Understanding the components of a porch and how they complement each other helps you to create your perfect porch. Porch lighting, railings, columns, furniture, and landscaping are just a few of the critical factors to integrate into your front porch design.
Mary and I have created an amazing portfolio of front porch designs for almost every imaginable front porch along with designs for the ever popular screen porch, three season, and even four season porches.
In addition, we offer planning tips to create your own perfect porch.
