Front porch ideas: Designing the perfect small uPVC porch

28th September 2017 |

Double Glazing

Porch with a red composite door

Have you ever thought about installing a porch at your home? If you have, were you surprised at the amount of considerations needed regarding your porch installation? There’s the materials, the design, the glazing options, what type of door, how much brick work? You may have been overwhelmed by the options available and the decisions needed for your new porch.

At Majestic Designs, we can help you to design the perfect front porch. A porch is a versatile home improvement which looks great, improves thermal efficiency and security, and can be used as a convenient storage area. The team at Majestic Designs, have a wealth of experience designing and installing porches across Somerset. Here are some front porch ideas to give you inspiration for your own home improvement plans.

Designing the perfect frame

The materials you choose for your porch’s frame will dictate the whole look and feel of your porch. Depending on your style of home and personal preferences, there are several options.

A fully glazed porch resembles a mini conservatory. It is the most cost effective option and can be installed relatively quickly. A fully glazed uPVC porch can be designed as an extended roof canopy with an open front or as an enclosed entrance area with its own entrance door. Choose either a glazed roof for maximum natural light or install roof tiles for a more permanent and solid feel.

A porch can also feature varying amounts of brickwork. Choose a low-level brick wall with large windows to create a light and airy entrance, or a half brick wall with standard sized windows for increased privacy levels. At Majestic Designs, we are happy to offer advice on the best option for your porch installation. Whatever type of home you live in, we can advise on which style of porch will be the best for you.

Choosing your windows and door

The windows and door you choose for your porch will have a massive impact on your property. For the best in home security, choose a high performance composite door. Our composite doors are strong and stylish and suitable for all types of property. At Majestic Designs, we like to give our customers as much choice as possible. Whether you choose composite or uPVC for your porch’s entrance door, it can be customised with your choice of glazed sections, door furniture, and coloured finish.

For your porch’s windows, Majestic Designs won’t be beaten for choice. If you want enhanced privacy, choose frosted or decorative glass. For a unique look, incorporate a bespoke shaped window into your porch’s design and make a feature out of your home’s frontage. Whatever windows you choose, at Majestic Designs every window we install is A+14 rated for energy efficiency. Your new porch will create an extra layer to your home, boost energy efficiency and save you money on reduced heating bills.
