I especially love the front door.
After living in the home a while, we decided we wanted something a little more special than just plain concrete for the porch. Here is a picture of the front entry with plain concrete.
We decided to do a stamped and stained concrete finish. I think it added a lot to the entrance of our home. As decisions are always an issue for me, picking out the pattern and stain color took probably twice as long as it would have take a normal, balanced person, but I like the way it turned out. In fact, we ended up doing the same treatment on our back patio and sidewalks. Here are some pictures of the stamped concrete in front.
We also decided we needed something a little more than just the landscaping we had already done to the right of the porch. We did not want to plant a tree because of potential light obstruction to the window behind the area, so we decided to add a simple urn water feature. The urn was a rusty muted terra-cotta color when installed. It has changed in appearance because I have not been good at adding the algae control liquid. I need to give it a good scrub.
Although, I think the front entry with the stained concrete and the water urn have been good additions, I still feel like the space could use something else. I know I could do a nice fall wreath a little later in the season to add some color and interest. If anyone has any ideas what else might look nice, I would love to hear them.
