Smaller porches, particularly those with delicate pastel color schemes, are often enhanced with smaller decorative items.
This picture perfect porch should put anyone visiting this psychotherapy office in a good frame of mind.
Painting the rings on this small porch is all it took to tie it to the color scheme.
Small Spandrel and Fan Brackets compliment this Victorian Cottage style home very well.
On the other hand, small porches on large homes often need to go bold with their decorations!
Here 8 medium-sized Corbels (originals - includes 2 behind each post) were joined by our Old Lace Gable Decoration to add heft to a small porch on a large 2-story house.
The small porch on this 2-story home incorporates multiple techniques to add substance. The porch itself features a small gable with fancy cut shingles, pulled forward to add more room on the porch. This also allows two more posts with their attendant trim. Steps are slightly narrower than the two front posts, permitting the use of Newel Posts at both top and bottom of the steps.
SR #4 Spandrel Brackets permit use of 6-1/2" Wisteria Spandrels while maintaining adequate headroom. 23" Cupid's Key Post Face Brackets extend across the face of the beam above the posts to complete the top decorations while substantial 3" Turned Balusters and Sloped-top Bottom Rails add their own heft to the balustrade area. Note also the appropriate use of Half Posts at the walls.
By using larger-sized components on a more intricate porch structure, these owners have created a wonderfully inviting porch that greatly enhances the 'curb appeal' of their fine home.
