Home Improvement Bloggers Transform Outdated Porch with Pella® French Doors

An Idaho couple who operate a popular home improvement blog have updated an old porch into a chic dining room with the assistance of custom Pella® French doors.

Chris and Julia Marcum, who have remodeled several of their family’s residences, said in a blog post they got started envisioning updates for the room when they visited the home last summer. The couple said they imagined using the large area to entertain friends and family as they gather for meals.

The couple said the room “added valuable living space and square footage to our home that we are excited to use year-round, but we definitely see summer dinner parties, with all the doors open to the patio and the flow from inside to out being magical.”

In its preceding use, the enclosed porch had a blend of doors—dated brown French doors and sliding glass doors.

At this time, many of the doors have been replaced with black Pella Architect Series® Reserve™ French doors. As this line includes highly customizable solutions, the Marcums were able to design the right door to fit their residence.

That space is now an updated dining room. A sleek|monochromatic|neutral]50] appearance has replaced the dated brick-and-brown palette.

While the room is large, it’s made cozier with oversized drum lighting pendants and a wide double-sided fireplace. A floating credenza, oak dining tables and leather chairs finish the look.
