Having and enjoying a front porch of your own is part of the
American dream and porch rockers are part of the American way of life..
A front porch is where your home
meets the outdoors and porch rockers on the porch say “welcome”.
Neighbors passing by notice you rocking on your porch; they may wave
or perhaps stop to say hello. Folks
you don’t yet know might also smile as they go by.
Front porches and porch rockers make neighborhoods feel
closer and friendlier.
Houses with a porch were popular in
the 19th century. Southern
houses in particular were built with a porch, as a place to relax in the
shade, in rockers, in the breeze. Urban neighborhood design is returning
to the traditional and porch rockers are now more popular than ever.
A realtor sees a view of rockers
on a porch as “curb appeal”. However
to us, porch rockers have the look of home.
