Picks for Front Porches
Awhile back a realtor in my office was desperate to find a home for her client. The only real requirement was that it had to have a great front porch. Price and location were not that much of a concern—just the front porch!
What is it about front porches that is so desirable? Generations ago the front porch was the living room of the home. It was a place to cool off, talk with neighbors and watch kids play in the front yard. Then, families gravitated to the back yard. Today front porches are making a comeback!
As a transition space, your porch should feel like an extension of your home's interior. A simple porch swing, or a couple of rocking or adirondack chairs would complete the look and get you to know your neighbors!
