House Plans with Fabulous Porches

Most of today’s house plans incorporate a front porch in their design. Porches are much larger, often spanning the full length of the front of the house to dramatically influence the function and curb appeal of your home’s exterior.

Depending on the architectural style, many architects and designers have increased the width of their porches to easily accommodate furniture and extra space for entertaining.

Equally popular are wraparound porches with screened-in portions to create a comfortable outdoor living space. It is important that your porch is consistent in detail and character with the rest of your home’s architectural style, since it is a major design element and the first introduction a person has to your home.

Our most recent issue of Home Ideas, features gorgeous house plans with a wide variety of porch designs featuring wide steps, large columns, gabled roofs, eco-friendly flooring, decorative balustrades and many more accents. Get inspired by our editor’s front porch design ideas, tips for choosing patio doors and designing a functional front porch that has lots of curb appeal.
