Porches and Patios for Exterior Home Design
A front porch or a back patio can create warmness to your home’s exterior like no other feature.
Your front porch represents your home to the neighbourhood around you. It is the first thing people experience when entering a home and is a great expression of the family it serves. A porch can act as a sitting room, a mud room, a potting room, an outdoor kitchen or a dining room…or whatever other function suits your lifestyle. While the traditional swinging bench on a porch is still a great feature, today’s porches have opened up a whole new world of options, bridging a home’s interior and exterior spaces.
Porches and patios are often designed with roof coverings, screens or other enclosures. These leisure spaces have become full extensions of the home, truly extending residential living space from the indoors to outdoors. These spaces often serve more multi-functional purposes for more family members than any other room of a home. Many porches and patios function as fully furnished rooms and are designed to be enjoyed for year-round use.
