Looking for an easy way to give your Northern Virginian home a facelift? Look no further than adding a portico, or a covered entrance for the front door. Simply adding an interesting front portico can accentuate a home’s entry area and add flair to a home’s exterior, as well as bring the comfort of indoor living outdoors. Porticos can extend your home’s living space by functioning as an entry nook to your home – recessed front entry areas are perfect spaces for a few chairs.
There are several front porch portico designs from which to choose, including arched porticos with an arch above the door, a gabled portico with a peaked top, a shed portico with a flat top, and a hip portico with a slight decorative raise in the top. Upper rail porticos give the illusion of a balcony above the front door – or can even be extended to actually serve as balcony space.
Designs and builders are increasingly turning towards utilizing often-overlooked front porch space by including porticos and covered patios into their home design. Extending roof lines to include outdoor living space creates a wonderful opportunity to bolster your total living space, especially in Northern Virginia homes or townhomes with limited lot size.
