Porches are a great way to extend your living space, and your style, to the outdoor area of your home. When it comes to planning your dream custom home, porches never go out of style–from warm summer evenings with the family to a tranquil afternoon of reading, and even entertaining houseguests. A porch can be the perfect addition to your Baltimore custom home for enjoyment year-round. Still not convinced? You can find plenty of ideas for lovely and functional porches that can help you make the most of your dream custom home in today’s design trends. No matter what your style, you’re sure to find an excellent porch for your Baltimore home.
Open porches are what you might think of when it comes to traditional front porches with wide steps. These porches are great for casual gathering and kicking back with a tall, refreshing beverage on a hot day to watch the days pass by. Try painting these traditional style porches a clean white to brighten the front of your home. Bright paint and plenty of seating can give your home a bit of character with a coastal-casual vacation feel.
Wraparound porches are generally associated with historical homes and consist of a low porch that will wrap around multiple sides of the house. These are great for spreading out seating and spending plenty of time outside during hot Baltimore summers. With plenty of porch space, you can decorate your outdoor space with hammocks, planters, an outdoor dining area, and more to make the most of your custom home. Try softening the boundary between a low porch and the lawn with a wraparound garden and bright planters along the edge of your porch or steps.
Screened-in porches are great for family homes and farmhouse style buildings. These can help you make the most of bright sunny days while taking shelter with friends and family. These are great for summer dining, especially since the screen will help protect you from mosquitoes and other pests so you can entertain long into the warm summer nights!
Covered porches are a stylish iteration of the screened porch that can consist of huge windows. Use these porches for an outdoor dining or games area, and enjoy the benefits of a sunroom all year round. These porches are a great place to install a bar for entertaining friends and family throughout the year.
