When many people think of decking colors, they generally think in shades of natural wood that range from the very common pressure-treated pine to dark hardwoods shades found in ipe or other Brazilian hardwoods. This provides a large array of color options. But add all the color options within the synthetic decking lines, and you have a virtual rainbow of colors from which to choose to build your deck or porch.
People who are unsure of the options available often choose to match the outdoor living space to the existing house. That’s always a good option. But you might also want to take a look at some of the other colors available. For most projects you have the option to pick two, three or even four colors as part of the design process if you choose.
The first, and most visible color, will be the deck flooring. There is a lot of it, so it is very noticeable. You may choose to match or compliment your house. Or, going with a
strong contrast color to your house will really make your custom space stand out. But your color choices don’t have to stop there. Today’s homeowners are choosing a variety of color for their new custom space to add visual interest and appeal.
Here are some fun options. We can add a contrasting border which will set off the color you choose for the rest of the flooring. If you are going to add a railing, it can have a different color and the posts that sit atop the railing can contrast or compliment as well. The slats between the posts can also have a distinct shade. One of our suppliers, TimberTech, has a visualizer web tool that you can use to get an idea about what I’m describing. It’s very useful and pretty fun.
If you want to do a deck refresh or re-decking, color can really be your friend. Maybe you would like to add a pergola. Upgrades and updates provide a terrific opportunity
to spruce up the whole area with different colors that will make it look like a brand new space. For example, a white pergola that picks up the trim color from your home is a great contrast to an alternately colored deck.
With color, you can really personalize the project and give it a custom look. Your deck won’t look like five other ones in the neighborhood. Color is often the best way to create a one-of-a-kind project without spending extra money.
