Front Porches, St. Louis, St. Charles Mo, Archadeck

Front Porch in St. Louis with Vinyl Rail and Columns by Archadeck

Nothing can improve the curbside appeal of a home more than a charming front porch.

A beautiful front porch addition creates an inviting, shaded entry and a casual seating area for ‘kicking back’.

More importantly, it offers a big ‘Welcome Home’ statement to homeowners and visitors alike.

But the two most important take-aways for any custom front porch design include:

First, the size of a front porch should be proportional to the size of the house.

Second, the porch’s architectural style, including columns and decorative rail, should mimic and complement the home’s overall design.
