Using Porch Railings to Help Decorate Your Porch
Whether you have an open-air porch, a screened in porch, or even a three season porch, porches are, by their very nature, part of the structure of the house. But don’t underestimate the decorative value of your porch and its porch railings.
For porch railings, use railing planters or install some yourself. Railing planters are a very innovative way to decorate your porch railings. By placing plants on porch railings it not only adds beauty to your porch railings, but saves space too! However, make sure your porch railings are strong enough to handle the weight of railing planters.
If you don’t have porch railings create a container garden. Use biodegradable coco-lined basket stands or floor planters. Use hooks or brackets for hanging coco-lined baskets.
Another option is to buy custom-made or off-the-shelf porch railings, or you can make your own. The materials you choose for your DIY porch railings will depend mainly on your skills, so be cautious when choosing between styles of porch railings.
