Entry door off-centered to porch roof pitch
April 14, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are in the process of converting our old outdated porch to more of a craftsman style. This porch used to have three columns that seemed to make the porch seem closed in. After taking out the middle post, we noticed it was there to "center" the front door. Now that the porch will be open, I really wanted a beautiful hanging pendant light. With the door off-center, should I still do a pendant and somehow balance something on the right side of the door??? Or go with recessed lighting, as to not call attention to it? Would love to add a window, but its not in the cards, either is moving the door. Any help or suggestions would greatly be appreciated;)
