The Grand Entryway

The Grand Entryway

by | Dec 29, 2014

As the holidays approach some families will come in from out of town while others will swing in from around the corner. When guests arrive the first thing they will see is the porch, the grand entryway into your home. Some porches are less than desirable based on their age, while others just need a little bit of a facelift. Some may have a family member that visits the porch for a cold drink before or after dinner, while others may sit or stand on your porch just to get a breath of fresh air.

Believe it or not, the porch is usually a hot gathering spot second to the kitchen. Most would think the living room would be the center of attention, however, most visitors find themselves nibbling on food or waiting on the porch to greet others. The living room sees its fair share of action, but typically because a football game is playing in the background. Weather permitting, the porch is not only a great place to catch up on the latest information among family and friends, but it’s the landing spot for every child’s bike or dirty shoes.

The combination of food, family, and the outdoor air, not only makes a tummy rumble, but gives a sense of warmth and contentment.
