Porch Post Pictures to Inspire Your Renovation
From historical mansions to modern suburban houses, beautiful porch posts can make a huge difference. These porch post pictures are from recent projects, where the porch posts were either replaced or upgraded to look even more attractive. See if any of these different style porches catch your eye and give you an idea to start your own renovation:
Colorful Porch Renovation
Consider the potential of your porch to bring color and excitement to your curb appeal. With distinct candy-colored stripes, these bold wooden posts are the main focal points of the porch and home. This injection of color works extremely well when paired with a neutral-colored house. Check out the detailed circular bands on both the large porch columns and the railing posts. This project also features other beautiful woodworking, including new deck boards and a striking wooden ceiling.
Straight Posts on Wrap-Around Porch
If you have a modern style front porch, finding porch columns can be challenging. Consider adding a unique paint or stain or an interesting feature in the carving such as a beveled edge. See how these new posts brought a simple, no-frills look to this large wrap-around porch. While many porch post pictures are in a classical style, sometimes a simple and modern piece is right for the job.
Tapered Posts for a Unique Porch
If you’re bringing a multi-faceted design to your porch, the posts can the be the perfect place to tie it all together. These classic porch posts have a charming look on their own, but when paired with the colorful porch railings, they complete the look. These posts feature a slim taper with carved sections and square bases and caps. Also, look closely at the porch post picture to notice the delicate bands carved into the posts. From the railings to the stained-glass door, this entire porch is unique!
Stately Columns for Historic Home
Columns on historic homes are a central part of what defines this architectural style. Historic columns tend to be quite large and stately, with ornamental carving around the cap and base. Check out this historic mansion, which needed to replace columns that were more than a hundred years old with a historically accurate exact match. Notice how the elegant brackets are included to provide even more intricate detail. Whether you live in a historic home yourself or you simply find the authentic colonial style appealing, this design style can complete your curb appeal.
Slim Porch Posts for Cedar Shake Porch
While oftentimes the columns are the main feature in a porch re-design, they can also serve a supporting role. If your porch already has a standout style, this might be the right direction to go. Notice how the cedar shake siding on this home is an absolute curb appeal showstopper, and every other detail on the porch augments the look. See the way that the ornamental brackets provide a one-of-a-kind character to the sleek posts. This precise carving helps them stand out in a beautiful space. This design style uses interesting posts to go along with the main focal point – without upstaging it.
