Columns help to support the weight of your structure by transferring the weight to the below elements such as another floor or the ground floor. The square columns are used to support your home and serve as the backbone. Manufactures of the columns can choose to design the pillars in order to make them more attractive.

Part from being functional pieces, pillars often also serve as decorating elements for your home. The pieces can either be attached to the wall or they can be arched at the door way.

The columns at the porch can be used as additional support for your roofing or as decorative pieces. Both the square and the cylindrical columns have three parts. The top part of the columns is known as the capital or the cap. This part is usually wider so as to enable it to support the weight of another floor, the roof or the arch.

If you want to go for a simple look, the Tuscan or the Doric style are more appealing for your Florida home. If you want to have something that is more elaborate and sophisticated, your safest bet would be to go with the Corinthian cap. The tapering on the columns prevents the pillar from becoming deformed due to the weight that it supports.
