Enhance Your Home's Exterior Appearance with a Victorian Look
Unlike your typical porch posts, porch columns are impressive, elegant, and almost twice the size. These versatile structures are most often used to support a roof, but the purpose of porch columns goes beyond providing a functional structure for home entries. They can also significantly enhance a home's facade as decorative elements.
Since wood can be stained or painted to match the exterior of a house, this material is a popular choice among homeowners. Porch columns can also vary in style. While some prefer regular columns, others opt for more ornate designs inspired by Victorian architecture.
Regular porch columns provide a simple yet sophisticated style, making it perfect for any contemporary home. On the other hand, Victorian porch columns are a classic design feature that is ornately made and includes intricate carvings.
Porch columns involve a lot of detailed work, so well-done custom wood turning can deliver some stunning, long-lasting pieces.
The Benefits of Regular And Victorian Porch Columns
There are several reasons porch columns can increase the value of your home:
- Structural Support - Porch columns are designed to support the roofs of porches and decks while providing shade and protection from the elements.
- Aesthetic Appeal - Wooden porch columns allow the natural beauty of wood to be seen on a home's facade. With wood being an easy material to stain, homeowners can customize the hue to meet their preferences.
- Versatility - Porch columns are distinguished by their elegant style, with a wide range of styles and sizes available.
- Durability - Porch columns usually have a higher degree of durability and can support more weight than a porch post. Moreover, they will not require much maintenance and are built to withstand outdoor conditions for many years.
