Make the Front Porch More Welcoming
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.
