The kitchen may be where family and guests tend to gather in the home, but the front porch welcomes visitors and makes a statement within the neighborhood. It also makes the first (and sometimes only) impression on passersby.
If a front porch is the face of the home, this front porch surely must express friendliness and hospitality with wide brick steps and rocking chairs that add to its appealing country style.
Whether your porch is a small entry area or a roomy wrap-around, you can create style, curb appeal and comfort in your home's welcome center. See the following front porch ideas for giving your home a friendly face.
