Color almost always plays a huge role in creating curb appeal. Often times it only takes a little color to have an immense impact. The key is finding the right color or colors to create the effect you want.

Did you know that residential architectural styles have their own color palettes? The palettes can help you not only choose the right porch paint but also find the right colors for cushions, pillows, or other decorating features to complement your color scheme.

brackets and running trim on front porch What makes a Victorian porch? The exterior trim of course. Often called gingerbread, house trim can be used individually or combined to create fairly elaborate displays.

Trim can add interest to almost any porch, large or small - it doesn't have to be a Victorian home.

Simply adding decorative brackets to the tops of columns can give your porch a new look. And, it is easy to do.

Have fun decorating your front porch

Porch decorating is enjoyed by many. Consider your porch as an artist's canvass on which to paint. Even if on a budget porch decorating can be as easy as repainting columns, railings, the front door, or even your porch furniture. Decorating for the seasons can be as simple as changing out the colors of your porch cushions or re-purposing items around your home, garage, or attic.

You can change the entire appeal of your home with the right porch railings and columns.

From the very simple in design like a comfortable country porch with colonial balusters to the Victorian with elaborate sawn balusters, railings and columns not only add structural integrity and a measure of safety, but also can be used for decorative purposes as well.

If you want a new look for your porch or home, consider changing the style of either the railings or columns. Column replacement is as easy as obtaining wraps that surround your existing columns to give it an entirely different appeal.
