Today, the classic front porch is making a comeback with updated Humboldt Redwood porch designs to build and enjoy. A favorite addition to family homes throughout the History of Redwood, a Humboldt Redwood porch greets visitors and neighbors, and is their first impression of your home. If you haven’t already built a redwood porch, maximize the beauty of this highly visible entryway with a warm and inviting outdoor living area. Get started with these Humboldt Redwood porch design ideas.
Lighting is an essential element of a cozy front porch and will maximize enjoyment of the space well into the evening hours. If you have stairs leading up to your porch, consider adding small, LED solar outdoor lights along the railings or balusters to help lead your guests safely up the stairs. An overhead light is an excellent option if your porch features an overhang or covered area. For summer use, a combination ceiling fan and light is an excellent option.
You can easily Build Redwood Furniture to compliment your beautiful Humboldt Redwood porch. Adirondack chairs, swings, side tables, benches, and more are easy to build yourself with Humboldt Redwood. Visit our Humboldt Redwood Furniture Project Plans page to learn more and download plans.
If your home is small or you need extra storage space, consider adding storage features into your Humboldt Redwood porch design. One option is to create built-in benches with hinging tops for storage underneath. Even in larger storage spaces for bikes and children’s toys, redwood is a great option for easy workability. This versatile wood allows for design changes and modifications up to the point of building. Let your imagination go and consider all the possibilities available with Humboldt Redwood.
