I used to love sitting out the front porch with a wine in the afternoon setting sun - you could actually see the sunset even tho facing the street. Nice to check out the happenings of the neighbourhood too. We demolished that house and nearly done with the new one. So now as our new townhouse is nearly finished and I have to decide on the patio finish, I recall how I used to use that space - it's the same space facing the same aspect, tho more modern! So I realise I would prefer to sit in a nicely tiled space with clear delineation from the driveway rather than succumb to the easy option (builders not mine!) of carrying the driveway aggregate through to the front door!
All the little things will make a big difference when you come to use the space.

Ours is dual purpose. We spend a lot of time on it. One of my favourite spaces at home.
