What color do you guys recommend to paint my porch.?

The sun beats directly down on it. Currently it s red but we are going to repaint it in the next two or three weeks.

We definitely don t want white or a cream color. What other colors do you guys recommend to at least help reflect the sun a little so it doesn t scald me when touched.

We we re thinking grey and a blue hand rail.

Or just a straight light blue color.

    In my region the Victorians still attract 4 or more colors. Our

    Gold Rush Era porch paint tends to be salmon pinkish-red

    or a light flat green. Neither has gloss. None of the porch

    post supports on porch are square 4x4 as seen today. I'd

    advise a Job Smith turns a larger post into beveled curves

    with any flat surfaces at both ends.

    Pink! You wouldn't think it maybe but it makes a good house color.

    Gray and the accent color should represent that of something you see in nature where you are. Blue will work, but check the flowers, trees, evening sky.

    ANY color that is light will help reflect the heat.
