Although they may remind us of simpler times gone by, front porches are offering more design options than ever before and growing in popularity. In fact, the number of new homes built with porches grew from 42% in 1994 to 65% last year, according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).
Here are just a few of the trends that are making porches warmer and more welcoming then ever:
Color it Creative
No matter your design aesthetic, use a pop of color or a feeling of rich texture to make it all yours. Start with the porch floors as a dramatic opening statement by mixing contrasting or complementary colors. Then work your way up with trim and ceiling accents that complete the unique look of your home.
Put Them in the Plus Column
Porch columns offer a lot more than support; they play a key role in making your porch the star of your home’s picture-perfect entrance. Columns can be round or square and highlighted with creative crowns, bed and base moulding that add lines, accents, angles and uniformity. To protect, preserve and personalize, use VERSAWRAP PVC Column Wrap that’s easy to install and easy on the eyes.
Bring the Inside Outside
A porch is more than a beautiful extension of your interior décor. You can make it more comfortable and personal than ever before. Think of it as another room, built with sturdy weather resistant materials that keep it looking clean and inviting. Your porch faces the world and puts a welcoming smile on your home – giving friends, family and the community a pretty preview of good things to come.
In the past, most homes were built with a single material. Today, you’ll see stone, metal, glass and more used on the interior and exterior of homes that range from traditional to modern. Porch flooring comes in a variety of textures from woodgrain to wire brushed. Whatever materials you select, make sure they’re low-maintenance and as durable as they are beautiful.
