You’re free to pick whatever color you like for your new deck, but you must be mindful of your choices if you want to get the most out of your outdoor space. Eagle Creek Siding, LLC shares tips on how to choose the perfect color scheme for your deck.
1. Match the exterior color of your home. Consider your home’s siding, trim, and other exterior features when choosing the color of your deck. Using their color palette as a basis allows you to create a beautiful and seamless connection between these two elements without one of them overpowering the other.
2. Follow the color wheel rules. For your house and deck color scheme, it is recommended to use three colors – a dominant, secondary, and accent hue. Either similar or complementary colors make up the perfect color palette. Keep in mind that your outdoor furniture, pillows, plants, and other accessories will be in secondary and accent hues.
3. Think about the deck’s material. Your deck’s color options are still based on the material you choose. For instance, a variety of colors can be used to paint or stain wood and composite decks. With concrete or brick decks, you don’t have the same great flexibility, though. If you want additional color options, a wood deck is your best bet.
4. Complement the surrounding landscape. The area surrounding your deck may also have an impact on your color choices. In contrast to a colorful setting, a mostly green landscape might nudge you toward selecting red or orange, which provides contrast to that main hue. Additionally, if your deck is connected directly to your house, you can get color ideas for your deck from the flooring there.
