How to add curb appeal with a portico. Simple right? Last week I shared the start of our curb appeal project in the front of our home and how we are adding a new portico. A portico is a porch structure leading to an entrance of a building and are a fabulous way to add architectural detail and character to the front of a home. Prior to adding a new structure to our home, my mom and I always need to share images with my dad so he can visually see what we are talking about. My mom has wanted to add either a farmers porch or larger portico for a few years now and finally, my dad has agreed. The farmers porch is still on her wish list but she will take a new portico for now ;).
*update : See our New Portico Reveal. It’s finished
Baby steps when it comes to my dad!
Here are a few of our favorites that we shared with my dad to get him motivated.
Here is the house now with the old portico torn off the house.
Which portico style do you think would look the best? You can see how tiny the existing one was and how out of place it looked as the house size grew. Do you think round italian style columns or square columns? Personally, I like the round and I think, because the home already has so many square/rectangular dimensions, the round would help break that up a bit. So many decisions! Stay tuned, the final product is coming soon.
