Traditional Vertical Railing
Depending on your porch size, you may want to go with more of a traditional vertical railing. This railing is very common but it can also make your home have an elegant look. If you go with a traditional vertical look you can choose if you like the basic non-decorative rods or add some character with some curves to your railing.
Decorative Wrought Iron Railing
If you prefer a more decorative design and still want the metal look, along with the sturdiness that it brings. Then you can go with ornamental wrought iron. This can bring a touch of luxury to your porch. You can also design and customize it to the way you want it to be.
