People always think of the older movies, where time was well spent on the front porch, with friends, family, and neighbors! This is not a tradition that has gone away. When you live on a beautiful street, and enjoy your house, why not spent time soaking up the day on your porch?
We’ve recently done a new front porch on a beautiful tree lined road in Delmar, NY, where the home owners didn’t want to sit inside. Many newer homes don’t have a real old fashion porch, where you can enjoy the neighborhood and relax in your own front yard. We know how to fix that, call Bennett Contracting who will design and build a porch onto your existing home, just the way you have always wanted it.
Why You Need A Big Front Porch
- Enjoy your neighborhood. If you live in a beautiful neighboorhood, how often do you take the time to enjoy it? When you have a space that is connected to your home where you can leisurely sit, this creates an opportunity to sit outside, take in your neighborhood, and really enjoy it.
- Meet your neighbors. When we spend so much time inside, how often do we have the chance to interact with neighbors? Sitting outside gives you the opportunity to say hi as people drive or walk by.
- Perfect place for eating and relaxing. As today, we are living in a “go go go” mentality, having a place to sit and relax, maybe grab a snack can make our whole day better! If you create a space that you go to for relaxing you are more likely to spend time there to relax.
- More space to host and entertain. Have you ever had your home full of people? Or have you ever had to cut your guest list down because your home didn’t have enough space? Having a large front porch gives you that much more space to host and entertain, solving the issue of cutting down guest lists.
- Create an inviting entry to your home. If you create a warm and welcoming space on your front porch, this will be the first impression people have as they come into your home.
