Make the Front Porch More Welcoming

This exterior feature is getting more attention amid the pandemic. Get inspiration for colorful, cozy front stoops.

In a world changed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the front porch is seeing a renaissance. Once a staple of home design in the early 1900s, the front porch began to be swapped out for street-facing garages as homeowners sought more privacy and started favoring backyard decks.

But now a home with a front porch very well could be the envy of the neighborhood. It’s become a place where you can interact with neighbors from a distance. It’s also a place to cuddle up with a good book or watch the kids play in the front yard. During the pandemic, it’s also become the prime backdrop for photographers to capture family portraits.

Get inspired by these beautiful front porches that designers posted at Houzz, a home remodeling website.
