Home to Friendly Front Porch Ideas

On the road van

Tarboro NC is a town where community is encompassed by tree lined streets, among friendly folks, and on wonderful front porches.



Join us as we share photos of this quaint southern town to glean a few front porch ideas for designing and creating your own perfect porch.

Note the exterior house trim in the photo above and in the two photos below. Mary and I really enjoy seeing how porch trim can change the look of a front porch. It is easy to combine different trims to create your own unique look.

An easy decorating ideas is to use a charming assortment of potted plants and other items you may have on hand to create a focal point or just add lots of interest to your porch. Notice the cute bunny statues.

Take note of the exposed joists on this craftsman-style porch below. They not only add visual interest but a certain charm as well. The porch columns, although imposing, are aesthetically pleasing as well.

We like the wide steps and arched entry too!

This home has a gambrel roof while the porch has a shed-type roof. You don't see this too often but it works well on this home below. This is a good example of combining different architectural styles on a home.

Often times a plain or simple item can make your porch interesting or fun. The attractive candle holder and candles on the porch below do just that.

Tarboro NC Wrap Around Porches

This open wrap-around porch has its own charm. It's a good spot to sit and watch the world go by. The vines across the top should be in full color later in the spring and summer.

This wrap-around porch is more formal than the one above. The ceiling fan, porch swing, and rockers make this a porch worth a special spot to sit on!
