What color should I paint my porch floor?

Answered
I have an old colonial home (circa 1895) and the shingles were stained a natural color. We will be painting the front door black and putting up black shutters. My window trim and railings are white. The color of the porch floor is sage green now. I am at a loss as to what to do with the porch floor. Keep it green or change the color.

    Try the bluish-gray for the floor AND the ceiling. It's a classic southern veranda color scheme. I would also put up some black light fixtures for the pop.

      Hi Karen. Thank you very much for your suggestion. I will definitely get some color samples and see how they look and having the black fixtures is a great idea. Definitely give it a pop. Love it. Thank you.

    I'd paint it a blue, which would make a nice contrast to the door and shutters,. Try a blue between sky blue and a little darker., but not too dark. Good Luck!

      Hi Ebbjdl....I will be looking into picking up a wider range of color samples in the blue range now. Thank you so much for taking time to answer.

    I like green for a porch floor but a grey/blue sounds nice for your floor.

    Hi Emily...Thank you for your input regarding the color. Since I have the green now, I will definitely look into the blue - blue/grey color that was suggested as a change. I really appreciate your reply.

    I think I would go dark grey.

    I loved red porch floors. Not necessarily a bright red but a deep red.
