Brentwood Front Porch Builder

Our Front Porch Makeovers Can Transform Any Home!

It’s likely The Porch Company will be known as “that Brentwood front porch builder” from now on, at least around here. It’s a reputation we’ve earned, and we hope you agree, based on this beautiful, custom front porch addition we recently completed in Brentwood, TN.

Brentwood Front Porch Builder

The porch we designed for these homeowners transformed the aesthetics on the front of their Brentwood home. The home itself was already quite beautiful. With this new front porch design, we added several features to the home that increase its air of elegance. You can’t pick apart any one element about this design that’s solely responsible for the stunning impact. The winsome effect comes from the combination of features and the way they interact within the design.

Column Design Trick from Ancient Greece Serves the Same Purpose Today

Brentwood Front Porch Builder

As you approach the home, several features make a strong first impression. The most obvious might be the grandeur of the two sets of double white columns that frame the front door. It’s as though the columns have pulled back a curtain to reveal these beautiful doors that beckon you to come closer. The columns are PermaCast® from HB&G. Made with a proprietary blend of fiber-reinforced polymers, the columns are durable and low-maintenance, a significant reason to have them on your porch!

Look closely at these columns to see an optical illusion at work here. What you may not realize is a round column viewed from eye level will appear to grow larger toward the top. The ancient Greeks considered this illusion undesirable and found a way to eliminate it by gradually tapering the upper two-thirds of a round column. HB&G still uses this technique today. Now you know!

Did Widows Really Walk on Widow’s Walks?

Even as you are drawn to the front doors, the new widow’s walk above the porch catches your attention with a sense of romance and mystery. While you know Brentwood, TN, is not a coastal city, the architecture is convincing! Perhaps a sea captain’s widow did live here at one time and searched the horizon for her husband’s ship despite her distance from the sea. Who’s to say?

The attention-getting panels across the front and sides of the widow’s walk feature one of our porch railing designs, the Jackson panel. We created the posts in this widow’s walk with our Hermitage sleeve and cap. Both the Jackson panel and the Hermitage sleeve and cap are made with low-maintenance solid cellular PVC and are available online in our PorchCo store. With PVC, the homeowners won’t have to worry about the widow’s walk becoming weathered and faded, nor will it need to be painted.

This Brentwood Porch Is the One You Want on Rainy Days

Romance and mystery of the widow’s walk aside, this new front porch serves a very practical purpose: it protects guests from the elements. Neither guests nor delivery personnel will need to wait in the rain at this house. Family members, too, will benefit from a roof over the door on those days when they fumble with keys and shopping bags.

When you take in the size of this front landing, you can see why The Porch Company is a favorite Brentwood front porch designer. We mix aesthetics with practicality whenever possible – and it’s almost always possible. Here we increased the size of this front landing to accommodate several people at one time. While a typical front stoop might have multiple visitors jockeying for position under a tiny overhang, not so, here. We estimate half a dozen folks could stand comfortably on the landing under this porch roof, all remaining dry in a storm.

Not only are visitors protected here, but so are the doors! Direct rain and sun would be punishing to these beautiful wood doors. The more exposed they are, the sooner they would have to be replaced.

Elegant Design Details and Quality Materials Coalesce

The landing and the front steps are made of stone in a mixture of earth tones. The railing flanking the steps is wrought iron. It almost fades from view as you approach the house, but once you get close enough to use the railing, it’s very much visible.

The closer you get to the new double front doors, the more beautiful they seem. The homeowners can adorn the patterned glass windows with an ever-changing selection of seasonal wreaths.

custom front porch addition in Brentwood TNThe “Haint Blue” Porch Ceiling – Whimsical?

If you were to stand on the porch and look up at the ceiling, you’d notice the tongue-and-groove beadboard ceiling is painted light blue. We’ve written about this practice before, and it’s always intriguing. In several parts of the county, folklore suggests different reasons for painting a porch ceiling blue. In the South, especially the South Carolina Low Country, a porch ceiling this color is called “haint blue.” It was used to keep apparitions (aka ghosts) from entering the house. Everyone knew these spirits could not cross water, so it made sense to paint the ceiling a color that imitated water.

Some New Englanders painted the porch ceiling to reflect colors found in nature, remind them in winter that brighter days were coming. In other regions, homeowners painted the ceiling a shade of sky blue to discourage birds and insects from building nests there. Supposedly folks believed the birds and insects would not nest there because they were tricked into seeing the porch ceiling as sky. Today we know that porch ceiling paint in those days was often made with lye and milk, and lye just happens to repel insects. So it worked!

No matter how whimsical these theories seem now, color specialists say blue is a calming color that conveys relaxation and peace. We think that’s a fine reason to greet your visitors with a blue porch ceiling no matter where you live.
