Front porch floor paint ideas


I have a traditional red front brick house with white siding and black shutters. I would like to paint the dull faded front porch floor. I was thinking about painting it glossy black but a little afraid. Anyone have any experience or suggestions of a color. Thanks

Welcome J, I would suggest a dark gray, or a deep red, like a barn red color.

Black will show every speck of dirt. I think if it were me, I'd go with a tile red color to match the brick.

Don't you hate when that happens, especially when you duplicate. You kind of get that look on your face, as when Seinfeld says Newman.

Happy 4th DM!

Be aware the color you paint on the porch floor will reflect a color change to the adjoining room's walls/ceilings, especially with setting/rising sun facing it. I used a light-brownish yellow rather than the previous green last time I painted mine.

I like the idea of using a color to match up with my brick. Thanks to everyone for your suggestions/comments.
