Finding The Perfect "Haint Blue" For Your Porch Ceiling

Real Estate Broker/Owner with THE TEMPLE TEAM

Porch ceilings along America's East Coast - Especially in the Southeast are almost always painted a light or pastel blue.  It doesn't matter what the color of the rest of the house is.  

What was once done as a superstition to keep the ghosts and spirits away has now become just a normal way of "porch life".

It's been done for years, parents have done it, grandparents have done it and grandparents before them have done it.

In addition, it is also thought to lessen the amount of bugs and birds that are attracted to your porch because  they think the blue is the "sky" and won't want to stay long or nest. 


Here are a few common choices for "Haint Blue" to help with making the right choice for your ceiling!
