If you are lucky enough to have a front porch, you may not be aware of what an impact a change in color or paint scheme can have on your curb appeal. This is the first impression people will have of you as they walk up to your front door. Believe it or not, there are a several things that you can do with paint to dramatically change the overall appearance of your front porch and increase the curb appeal of your home. Ciarlanti Painting is here to share some front porch tips to change the look of your front porch.
Painting Your Front Porch Steps & Railing
If you have wooden front porch steps, they will need to be cared for to avoid premature wear and tear. While the tops of the boards may be stained, you can think about painting the inside of the step a different color for a modern farmhouse look that is easy to change up when you get sick of it. You can even paint the entire step, but be sure to use a high quality, durable paint that will be able to withstand the wear and tear that will definitely come with it. Also, the railing on your front porch shouldn’t get neglected. Painting it or staining it an attractive color can really change the way your porch looks. If you are painting the inside of your front steps, consider painting your railing to match. If you paint your front steps a color, make sure the railing matches for a cohesive look.
Paint Wood Porch Floor
When you have a front porch or an enclosed sunroom, painting the floors can give the space a facelift. You will want to choose a color that goes with any décor that you want to put out there, and that’s why neutrals are the best choice. Greys, light blues, taupe and other neutral colors will give the space a classic look. Again, when painting the floor, a durable paint is necessary so you can get the most out of your paint.
Painting Exterior Porch Columns
The columns on your front porch can be a fun way to add interest to your home. Many people choose to paint them the same color as the trim or shutters on their home. Other people will choose to have them match the railing and paint them that same color. If you are looking for something more modern, consider painting your columns a completely different color all together. While you wouldn’t want to choose a color that is too bold, choosing a different neutral color can help make your columns pop.
