Here are a list of 3 Front Porch Paint Ideas:
White is a classic color choice for the front porch. A white painted house along with a matching white picket fence creates a welcoming atmosphere. Often you can see beautiful flowers blossoming in the garden either in pots or planted directly into the ground. The white color will set off these flowers nicely and make your home appear welcoming for anyone who either drives up or walks up.
White is a color that, unfortunately, can easily get dirty and dingy if not taken care of properly. In order to avoid this you may wish to paint your porch with a semi-gloss white. This way dirt does not show as easily from shoes being dragged in the house and it also preserves the amount of light passing through it.
Natural wood is known for being a beautiful accent to any tan or brown tones in your front door. A dark mahogany stained wooden porch can really create a lovely sight from the road and draw people up to come inside even when you are not home.
Materials such as red brick also go well on a front porch. This adds an extra layer of protection from the elements, especially when you are facing the sun.
As long as you keep color combinations within darker shades, you can create just about any type of look that you want on your front porch.
2. Orange and White Accent Stripes
This combination is very unusual especially when you think about a porch. The combination of orange and white really does look nice though. You can see the white painted woodwork and brick with orange flowers in pots or planted directly into the ground.
If you want to have an especially decorative effect, try painting a picture on your front door that has many different colors within it. This can take some planning as you need to have the paint mixed beforehand, but it will be worth it in the end. You can still use an opaque white to create bolder lines in your painting so that your picture stands out even when viewed from a distance.
3. Blue and White Accent Stripes
A dark blue with white accent stripes can really add a lot of class and style to your house. The blue is especially effective for bringing out the natural rustic elements in the woodwork, brick, and picket fence.
When you see this type of combination together you know immediately that it is something original and different from what most people would come up with. It makes a statement to the world that your home is not like other homes and you are committed to creating a fabulous, one of a kind house.
A dark blue with white accent stripes can also really make all the green grasses around it glow and stand out in stark contrast. You may wish to plant some flowers or shrubs on your property just so that you can showcase their vibrant colors as well.
Blue and white is a combination that should be avoided if you have problems with the color blue such as those who are known to be susceptible to headaches when they view it. Keeping this in mind, it might be ideal to make your stripes a bright red or orange instead.
