The porch has slowly become a staple in most homes and is still increasing in popularity. 

But what makes them so popular among homeowners? 

A well-fitted porch holds a whole host of benefits –  from aesthetics to practicality. 

Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of installing a porch. 

  • Enhanced aesthetics 

Typically installed on the front of a home, a newly-fitted porch is enough to get your neighbours jealous and passersby’s heads turning by creating a striking entranceway. Not only will a porch increase the kerb appeal of your home, but will also add value to your property. 

  • Increases natural light 

With windows featured on both sides, a porch helps to maximise the amount of natural light that enters your home and creates a bright and more welcoming entrance for yourself and guests. 

  • Improved home security 

We all want to feel safe in our home and the thought of unwanted visitors entering your home is scary. By installing a porch you can essentially add an extra barrier, making the life of would-be burglars even harder and providing you with added peace of mind. 

  • Extra space 

Most homeowners are in the need for extra space – that’s where porches shine. A perfect place for hanging coats or storing shoes, with a porch you can create a much more organised home.
