The Best Strategy of Choosing the Right Decking Color for Your Home on Your Composite Dream Deck
Deciding to build a new deck or to resurface your existing deck with composite deck boards is a great way to utilize your backyard to the fullest! Working with a contractor on a design that works within your budget is especially important and once you are ready to move forward with your project, it is time to choose colors! The deck color that you choose should complement the existing colors of your home. You can choose a bold combination of style and colors and your deck will become the focus of your yard, or your deck can be simple and classic and blend into your outdoor living space.
Selecting between a traditional, neutral color scheme and a bold multi-color scheme is a good place to start. If you are not sure which is the right choice for your home and yard,
you can start by examining the overall design and shape of your dream deck. A custom design with curved boards, flared stairs, multiple levels, clipped corners, or any combination of these design elements, may be best suited for a simple, single-color deck board selection that works with your home’s color by blending in for an elegant presence or accenting with a single-color selection for a more glamorous appearance. A simpler square or rectangular deck could be made more interesting by using a two-color scheme with accenting perimeter boards, railings, and center boards, or an inlaid design. Personal preference, of course, is always the final deciding factor.
Deck colors for a Beige House:
Trying to find a deck color that exactly matches your beige siding is all but impossible. You do not want the deck to look as though you tried to match and “missed”. Alternatively, select colors in a medium brown color. Matching or black railings would look be very suitable in this color scheme.
Deck colors for a White House:
Any color scheme that you prefer will look amazing on a white house, so which do you choose! Should you opt for a deck with a complex design, light grey shades or soft neutral browns will not overpower the architectural interest of your deck. If you are looking to feature your deck as a focal point, then reds, rich browns, and golds would help your deck to stand out! Dress them up with bright white or two-tone railings to tie into the white siding!
Deck colors for a Grey House:
Grey siding continues to become increasingly popular and those grey tones can range from light to dark and warm taupe greys to cool blue greys. The most popular deck colors for grey houses include soft browns, reds, or multi-tonal options that vary in grey and brown tones that complement the grey siding. Black or white railings are equally impressive options here.
It is always best to see a rendering of your deck in color so that you can visualize the final product in your head and see actual sample boards before you sign any papers. Brochures and internet pictures are not always perfect purveyors of color. Pay attention to the texture of the board as well, especially if looking at accenting colors. If you’re choosing a product with woodgrain embossing, you want to make sure that the embossing is consistent as even product lines within the same brand often do not have the same wood-grain patterns.
