Front porch railing question

Brett Keener
last month

Hello all, we are renovating our one story ranch and adding a porch. My question for you all is I’m trying to decide if we should go with the railing as in the picture or if we should continue the railing so that only the side approach is open.
I feel like the pros of keeping it as in the picture are that upon approaching the house it feels more open , and when opening the front door when coming out of the house maybe it’s nice to not have something blocking the view where you can walk straight and be able to exit the porch versus turning. And on the other side I feel like when sitting on the porch it might feel cozier to have more railing.
