A porch is one such addition as it can create a warm and welcoming atmosphere for all who visit you. Adding a porch does not require any major renovations, as it’s simply built and connected to your home.

Please read on to find out about the four primary porch design options you can choose from to enhance your home’s exterior.
The front porch is the type of porch that helps create a warm and welcoming entry into your home. It serves a different purpose to other porch types, like a back porch or a screened-in porch. Where these types serve as more of a private living space, the front porch completes your home’s overall design and atmosphere. You may be able to see yourself sitting comfortably and waiting to greet your visitors. When selling your home, potential buyers will gain their first impressions of your home as soon as they reach the front porch.
Unlike the front porch, a back porch is more geared towards creating a private space where you, your family and visitors can relax and unwind in an outdoor living area. It creates the ideal settling for a summer get-together, party, or for a peaceful day in solitude, reading a book. What a back porch does have in common with the front porch is that it is a lovely addition to any home, and it will increase your property’s market value.
Wrap Around Porch
A wraparound porch is a front and back porch combination that includes the best of both. Transform your property into a grand country house with the addition of a wraparound porch. This type of porch is both welcoming and creates an intimate space for you and your family. An added advantage is that it allows family and visitors to get from the front to the back of the house fast and effortlessly. As the day progresses you can move from one side to the other for continued shade and comfort. It goes without saying that this type of porch not only significantly improves your home’s curb appeal but will certainly increase its value and make your property more interesting for potential buyers.
You can turn your front, back or wraparound porch into a screened-in porch. This type of porch primarily serves to keep out insects and other vermin that can prevent you from enjoying the outdoor space. This usually involves the porch or deck contractors installing a roof over the porch to securely fasten the screens around it. This will result in making your porch a more noticeable addition to your property and creates a space where you can spend more time, comfortably and protected.
