Update Your Home With a New Covered Front Entance

Do you have a simple square box home, that looks boring when you drive up to it?

Maybe you should think about changing the look of the front.

One of the simplest ways to do this is to build a covered entrance on the front of the house that covers the front door.

You can make your entrance any style you want, it can be as fancy or simple.

A covered entrance serves many functions;

  • It gives a welcoming feel to the first impression of your home to guests.
  • It gives people waiting to come in the house shelter from the weather.
  • It sheds water away from the front door and the front walk. This is good for the longevity of the doors,siding and walkway of the home.
  • It protects people coming in and out of the home from falling snow and ice.
  • It can be made so that it is a covered sitting area for outside enjoyment.
  • It is a sheltered place in an age where everyone has packages delivered to their front doors.
  • Its a nice place to leave a baby stroller for quickly getting the child out and going.

Front entrances can large like the one above; Or small like the one below.

When you are thinking about renovating the exterior of your home, think about the front entrance and what changing it could do to not only the curb appeal of your home but the functionality.

You won't be disappointed.
