Porch columns are a wonderful accent and decorating bit to actually provide your small porch a punch. They can help provide your porch an appearance of a larger porch by grouping the columns in pairs. They also look great when paired with all rows of spindles or curved balusters. A porch wall is another design thought that can add some privacy to your small porch. If you have a low wall built that ends at about the exact same elevation as the first-floor windowsills it can really frame your porch and look amazing.

Porch decking must consist of timber that’s rust and insect resistant. Choose a material that’s durable and yet attractive. Your porch will get quite a lot of traffic and you do not want to be continuously repairing your decking. An attractive layout tip is to put your decking at a picture frame layout and have the outer border parallel to some steps. Paint the porch ceiling at a whimsical or enjoyable pattern. Of course, you will want it to have a similar look and feel to the rest of your backyard decorating, but use your imagination to make it unique.
