I actually really enjoy when the roofs of front porches project off the rest of the home's roof in a different material. Think of it as an accent piece. like with the decor of the house, you wouldn't use the boldest and brightest fabric or color throughout the entire house. Instead, you would limit it to a few accent pieces — like the porch roof.

On our porch in the above photo we painted the ceiling a light blue to mimic the color of the sky.....because the ceilings were so high it actually made the space feel more cozy.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Adirondack Chairs
These chairs are so versatile that when painted a crisp white or a glossy black, they can mingle with the most dignified porch furniture and classic columns.
Becky Harris added this to 12 Ways to Prep the Porch for Summer
Check the condition of the floor. If you're in a place that had a lot of snow storms this winter, your porch may need a good sanding or at least a new coat of paint or protective coating on the floor.
A dash of blue adds color and interest to this otherwise neutral exterior palette.
Simple yet elegant, this low-slung porch in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, features classic columns, weathered teak chairs and an ipe floor. The enormous feathery Kimberly Queen fern links the porch to the surrounding lawn.
