There should be some sort of law that stipulates that all homes constructed from this moment in time onward must include a front porch. My opinion, of course. But seriously, wouldn’t all homes look better with a front porch? They’re inviting, charming, and add to the livable space of your home. If I haven’t swayed you, check out these seven homes that have been transformed by porches.
We’re gonna start big and Victorian. At one point in its lifetime, this 1893 home actually had its wraparound porch removed. Recent owners–wisely–decided to put the porch back.
Now she’s back to her old, beautiful self.
Although this home looked lovely before, the porch Stratton Exteriors gave it is the perfect cherry on top.
Although this rambler had a porch, it was totally forgettable. Not any more, for not only did it get a new porch, the entire roofline was reworked (not to mention new windows, siding and etc.).
Now it’s fresh and lovely.
Take it from us: every porch needs a porch swing. For $66, this one will make your porch the perfect summer hangout.
Big and boxy, this two-story was ripe for a porch.
Palmer Custom Builders Yup, better.
Although it might look like it has new siding, it doesn’t. The owner painted the bricks.
Now for something more demure, this sweet little 1 1/2 story had a bit of a porch before that didn’t command much attention.
After, there’s no mistaking it. That is a porch.
Overgrown and overlooked, this modest home was lacking major curb appeal.
Gettum Associates, Inc. Now it oozes it.
And, finally, this house not only got a porch but a second story too. And the front entry was repositioned.
All the changes work together. So much so, I can’t imagine one without the other two.
