Outdoor Summer Series: Simply Traditional Porch Style
Our Outdoor Summer Series continues. Last week was all about “Inspired Modern Porches” and this week, we continue with Simply Traditional Style for our favorite Southern inspired porches. When it comes to traditional porch design, the must haves are wood railings, cypress shutters, and a gorgeous exterior door.
Traditional meets Tropical
This porch is a gorgeous combination of traditional with a tropical twist due to its location. The home owner embodies the South with cypress shutters and cypress handrails. Fun Fact: Cypress is the ideal outdoor wood choice due to its natural water and rot resistant. They don’t call it the “wood eternal” for nothing!! Most outdoor woodwork, especially in the Southern U.S. is typically out of some sort of Cypress.
French doors are the ideal option for your side porch or wrap around porch design! They can easily let the fresh air in on cool days and make an aesthetically pleasing entry point to your home from your outdoor space.
Custom front door designs can also add a beautiful wow factor to your porch and your overall curb appeal. The beauty of custom doors is they can be one of a kind and be made to your specifications. This is especially helpful when renovating gorgeous old Southern homes.
