paint exterior staircase and porch floor white?

15 years ago

I just bought a house. It has gray blue siding, white spindles at the porch, and white fence under the porch. The porch floor is treated wood without any stain or paint, same as the flat sides of the exterior staircase. However the vertical part of the staircase is white. The contractor suggests that he paints everything white including the porch floor and the exterior staircase to match the house. I am ok with white color, yet I have not seen anybody painting the floors and exterior staircase white. I imagine that it would get dirty easily, wouldn't it? I am thinking of just stain the treated wood, but I don't know. It does not look as good as all white thought. Is it practical to paint the floor and staircase white? Thanks
