You'll find 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.
With the selection of sliding, swinging, French and bi-fold patio doors available today, you have the flexibility to create a truly custom design that complements your home's architectural style and helps to define your outdoor living space. What type of patio door you use depends on your home's design, your lifestyle and convenience. For example is it opening to a large outdoor living space that flows from your interior living space? Is it for a small balcony? Or is it part of a large wall of windows?
