Stoops & Porches
Indeed, one way to make your home more welcoming is to improve your façade. And this can be easily achieved by adding carefully-designed and -built stoops and porches.
Stoops and Porches: What Exactly Are They?Stoops are small staircases that connect a home's entrance to the streets or to the walkway leading outside of the home's premises. In the city of New York, it can be found in many elevated apartment complexes, particularly the single-family row houses that you can find in the city.
On the other hand, porches are generally covered areas just outside homes where homeowners and their guests can sit back and spend hours chatting or doing other worthwhile activities. Most New York homes have porches that also serve as reception areas, and even party venues! Simply put, stoops and porches are not just aesthetic additions to any home, but are important utilitarian elements.
Since these specific areas are common in every New York home, it is but right to have them too. These home elements have long become integral parts of New Yorkers' life and culture.
But to get all these benefits, they should be built perfectly. Failure to do so can ruin the existing design or theme of the home. If the construction is sub-standard, it could even lead to legal problems since the state has a very strict building code.
