Additional Living Areas

A major trend in the front porch design industry is that of turning your front porch into an additional living area. Designers are doing away with simple entryways, and instead choosing to add benches, swings, and other functional elements. This adds interest to your porch, while also giving you the freedom to expand your home outwards.

 Intricate Railing

Both a safety and style feature, front porches all across the country are now showcasing intricate railing designs. This trend allows for your porch’s safety elements to become a major factor in bringing together your home’s overall style. For example, white engraved spindles help to complete the classic country feel of older homes, while metallic twisted rods help to exaggerate the modern edginess of contemporary projects.
