HGTV’s Erin Napier Proves How One Small Detail Can Tie A Front Porch Together

0 9

Your deck railing is a great way to add personality to your home before you step inside. Simple horizontal slats are always a solid option, but if you want to create cohesion with the home like Erin Napier did with her “X” design, you’ll need to do a bit more work. To figure out what design is best for your railing, look around your home. Napier used a window design to find her motif, but you can look at your flooring, archways, or other elements of the home to inspire you. Once you have your design idea, you’ll need to get out your drill and start working. 

Napier and her team cut the wood slats to size and placed the horizontal wood pieces on the bottom first. They then worked on the “X” design by drilling the smaller pieces of wood together at the top. Before they presented the finished work to the homeowners, they painted the rail a shade of white to match the rest of the home, creating a beautiful front entryway that looks like it had always been there. “The thing about the railing is it made it feel finished,” Napier said at the final reveal. “It ties the whole front of the house together,” said the homeowners.
