Throughout history, architects have added certain elements to homes to create stability and structure. Columns generally are included in a home to support the weight of the walls and roof and to provide stability to these elements. Patio columns are generally included in a home’s structural design to support the patio roof and enhance the stability of the porch. Found most commonly in ancient Greek and Roman architecture, columns were added as an elaborate decorative design to add detail and contrast to a building while fulfilling a structural need.
Modern design elements and styles have changed the way patio columns can complete the architectural style of a home. With designs in various shapes, you can complete the style of your home and create a welcoming and inviting patio or porch.
