Porch area needs SHADE - any ideas?
March 5, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I love my new-to-me 1940's home in a lovely area. It faces West and the setting sun STREAMS in this large window in the front. I would love more shade in this area but not sure an awning would fit with the window being close to the gutter. Any ideas for this? (the porch is behind the row of bushes in a step down area off the main stairs into the house. ) I've included a pic of my house and also a pic of my photoshop artists attempt at an awning. I also have the black metal over my door and a BLUE roof. Ugh. This all needs work but I don't know how to fix it. My hubby and I are considering adding a portico to the front door which would eliminate the black section. Any one have any great ideas? :)
