What can I do with this front entry?
September 8, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Any suggestions for improving the facade of this house. Originally, this was the side entrance to the house but now it's the main entrance. It just seems unbalanced and cramped. Any ideas how to make it more appealing?

I think it looks like there should be steps should be from the garage side to the door. I'd also cover the pilings with the siding material.

Very charming "cottage" ! The first thing I noticed is that all you see is CONCRETE..... The house is even the same color as the driveway so a little contrast in color will make a huge difference. Paint the front door a fun color that you love and install greenery across the entire length of the porch... This will add some LIFE and hide those cinder block footings. Remove the floodlights at the peak of the roof and install a new light centered over the garage door and add a complimentary light at the front door.
