Design, Make, & Live: Front Porches

Today, we are sharing all about how to design, makeover, and use (and LOVE!) your front porch. Form, function, DIYs, and more!!

This week's episode of the Your Home Story podcast really inspired me, since our front porch is still in its "before" state--a space we haven't tackled yet! In the episode I describe my current front porch setup and some wishes for the future (specifically with curb appeal). Ashley shares that she loves the updates that she’s done in her space, but in recording actually realized the function is still not there for her!

We talk “function” of the front porch first. We cover doors, weatherstripping, lighting, doorbells, and doormats to upgrade to how your front porch functions.

The aesthetic upgrades are more exciting, and we talk about some inspiring finished porches!

Specifically we referenced:
  1. What it costs to replace double front doors
  2. How to install a doorbell button
  3. Ashley’s Modern Front Porch Makeover
  4. Beautiful Before/After Skinny Front Porch Makeover
  5. Single door on the front porch with a larger concrete stoop/porch
  6. Inspiration front porch that spans the whole front of the house
