Creating the perfect porch can be simple and low-maintenance

Whether you want to remodel your porch from the ground up, or just give it a refreshing new look and feel, it’s easier than you think to create a perfect porch.

Start with an enchanting flooring for your remodeled porch, choosing from the rich, nature-inspired color palettes in deep, solid earth tones with wood grain textures, plus streaked tropical wood looks. Also, look at charming cobblestone and serene sand dune hues, which give your porch a relaxing feel reminiscent of a seaside resort.

Framing your porch, like a picture for the world to see, is easy with the right trimboard. Add elegant white or colorfully painted accent trim around the top, bottom and sides of the porch using durable cellular PVC trimboards in a variety of sizes.

This trim can even be crafted into ornate gingerbread or curved using heat-bending to make soaring arches. Get mouldings that can be readily cut so that you can add eye-catching detail anywhere and let you build a porch ceiling with great warmth and charm. For a picturesque porch, enclose columns in post wraps to protect them from the elements while adding wood’s natural, finished look.

To complete your perfect porch, dress up nearby windows and doors with distinctive touches that complement the look and feel of your outdoor living space. High-impact, budget-friendly ideas include adding richly-colored shutters with matching window headers to enhance your porch’s warmth and curb appeal. The sophisticated flat panel and geometric-style classic dentil headers pair perfectly with decorative shutters like.

Another quick, easy upgrade is an inviting door surround in cream, white or another neutral color to enhance porch aesthetics. Adding a door surround is a natural way to create that “welcome home” feeling too.
