I'm planning to put a porch on the front of my house. I really don't know where to start. Houses the same style on my road have all got dated looking upvc porches. This is something I would ideally like to avoid but ..I am stuck as to where to look for ideas.
Any help would be most appreciated.

Brick one to match the house with a tiled roof.

Depends on the style of your house (1930's covers a lot of styles) but what about something like this
Or this

Or this
or smaller version
Contemporary version

Cool - Stained glass porch

Look on google images. I put in '1930s porch' and it offered all sorts of pictures. Lots of wood, white paint, roundyness and stained glass.

Love your very contemporary one, wonkylegs, but it wouldn't look so great with buggies, wellies and muddy school shoes on show grin

Yeah I know - I'm an architect and love clean contemporary lines but couldn't live with them myself I'm not tidy enough.
My dads got a beautiful gallery like home with clean lines and lots of glass but that's because his youngest child is now 25 and lives elsewhere with his crap accoutrements grin

send a picture of the bit you are thinking of putting the porch on and I will give you my unqualified opinion. I love porches.
