Front stoop bluestone or brick
I asked this same question about a year ago, but I can't find that post. I put this project off because I've been somewhat overwhelmed by it, deciding on size, materials, etc. Now, we have to get this done because the stoop is falling apart. We are redoing our patio too which is also falling apart. The plan is to make the stoop platform wider, to the edge of the brick accent trim on the facade. I can't make it deeper because it would violate our setback requirement. Then, we'll wrap a stair around the three sides, square not curved. We're pulling out all of the front shrubbery and redoing that too. The path will be redone in mortared brick. Bluestone is the top choice in my area and we plan to do the patio in that edged in brick. For the stoop, bluestone treads and brick risers are common, somewhat standard on a house in my price range, but I'm concerned the bluestone will clash with my brownish stone on the facade. I have brick, stucco, wood, and stone on my house so I'm thinking another element would be too much. I could just redo the stoop in mortared brick. WDYT? Any other design thoughts would be helpful.
