Front Porch Picks

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!
