Porch. Monday , July 09th , 2018 - 05:14:31 AM
Do you remember when a porch was simply a structure on the outside of your home that was there to protect those coming into your house from the weather? How about the time when it was a simple wood or cement foundation, maybe with a few columns or railings, on which you set a rocking chair and watched the world go by? Well, say bye-bye to that. Porches have reached a new frontier.
If the open, exposed porch was not getting enough attention, let's talk about enclosures and all the screened porch ideas that abound in this environment. You will find homeowners including better furniture, pricier décor, higher grade window treatments, and even top-notch lighting. It us almost has if they built a full-fledged addition onto their home (and in some ways, they have).
Porch ideas can come from anywhere. With the many online sites offering pictures and information about porches, you can easily get an idea for building a porch or remodeling your existing porch. Home improvement magazines are also another source you can use in your search. While there may be many different kinds of porches that catch your eye, you have to really look into each one of them to make sure that the design will complement that of the exterior of your home. You also have to ensure that you have the required amount of space to use one of these ideas.
Decks are one of those under appreciated home investments that are sorely under utilized. Most standard builders just build the minimum housing requirements which will allow the homeowner to experience a minimum amount of enjoyment. The standard 6' X 4' back patio isn't large enough to do much of anything. Adding a full deck to the back of the home is like adding a whole new living space.
There are some many porch ideas available today that no matter what look, feel, or use you want or need, you can design to your hearts content!
Regardless of the house, any deck, whether it is covered or enclosed, is able to be designed and constructed with the existing architectural style in mind. Many deck builders don't have an architectural design background needed to accomplish this so it is usually best to consult and choose a builder or remodeler which specializes in exteriors. If this isn't done, the deck the homeowner is likely to get is just a large basic square platform without any inviting style or flare.
