You'll want to consider whether the railing goes in a horizontal or vertical pattern. This vertical railing used on a metro Atlanta porch by Edwards Andrews Homes contrasts with the stacked stone layout of the fireplace.
Supported by a stone structured base, this porch is adorned with brown lounge chairs and a white railing topped with iron decor. The sconces add light to the porch, illuminating the lounge space. The landscaping is kept simple with small foliage planted around the porch base.
Black steel pickets contrast with the pressure-treated pine selected for a set of stairs extending from a screened back porch to the yard. Innovative Construction, based in Roswell, Ga., designed the outdoor living space and stairs.
This home's black wrought iron railing and banister enhance the entryway without blocking the look of the brick exterior and columned front porch. The porch, which has a curved portico, was created by Atlanta Decking & Fence.
