In many homes, the porch is the first thing a visitor notices when pulling into your driveway. If your porch is run-down or shabby, with chipping paint or torn screens, it reflects poorly on your entire home. Make your home look beautiful inside and out by overhauling your porch. A porch renovation project can be time consuming, but careful planning and construction strategies will make your new porch an attractive part of your home. After completing your new porch, adding some casual patio furniture and potted plants will make it a relaxing, inviting space.
Plan Your New Porch
Never begin a home improvement project without a detailed plan. Before stripping paint from your porch or tearing down the railings, think strategically about what you want the final product to look like. Think about how you typically use your porch. Do you like to gather with a group to have a drink in the evening or is your porch a private reading sanctuary? These considerations will affect the size of your porch, its style, how many electrical outlets you need and how you decorate the space.
