There are good homes, and there are great homes. What separates the two? For that answer, we look to how today’s busy families live their lives, emerging cultural trends, and the fanciful winds of fashion and design – all to discover what Holliston homeowners have always known. Porches and patios make good homes into great homes.
Holliston Home Remodeler: Porches
One reason porches have so much appeal to today’s homeowner is the pervasive, persistent trend toward outdoor living. We spend so much of our lives cooped up inside – at work, commuting, doing the laundry – that any free moment is one we’d like to spend having fun, outside. A great porch can make that happen.
“Porches are spaces for play and relaxation!”
Another emerging cultural trend is the increased emphasis of shared time and fun spaces for families. We’ve been through a lot as a country. It’s time to revisit some basics! A quiet afternoon swing on the porch is the perfect setting for some parent-teen conversations. A great porch is your own personal retreat. Want to curl up with a good book and enjoy a sunny day? The porch is waiting for you.
Porches are great for entertaining, too! If you plan on using your porch for family bbqs, summer time cocktail parties, or even the impromptu midnight gathering to spot meteors streaking across the sky, let your Holliston building contractor know. They can help you plan the perfect porch that complements your home’s aesthetic, makes outdoor living and entertaining super easy, and increases your satisfaction with your home.
When we look at this season’s design trends, we see lots of neon colors and playful shapes. These design elements aren’t for everyone – you need to really love lime green and acid yellow before you commit to porch furniture in those hues – but the sensibility of energy and enjoyment certainly are. Porches are made for good times. They’re custom built to create happy memories!
