Advantages of Adding a Front Porch to Your HomeHere are just a few of the reasons to consider adding a porch or buying a home that already has one:
- Comfort and quality of life. There’s nothing quite like relaxing on your porch. A get-together with friends on Saturday night, coffee on a Sunday morning, a weeknight family meal – all of these things and others are immensely enjoyable when you have a sheltered outdoor space.
- Aesthetics. These structures are not just a great place to relax, they can also enhance the curb appeal of your home. Porches can be designed in a wide range of styles.
- Efficiency of space and energy. The overhang of a porch can be placed over windows, particularly west and south-facing windows, to keep your home cooler in the summer. Porches can also serve as a multi-purpose space for your family. Some people use them as playrooms, crafting areas, dining areas and even rooms for their pets.
