Designing your deck is a very personal task that could make or break your entire outdoor living space. Aside from the layout and materials, one other critical element when it comes to deck design is color. When chosen well, deck colors will complement your main house while still blending in with the rest of your outdoor space. It adds visual interest as well as creates an area that promotes rest and relaxation. However, choosing the wrong color does the exact opposite. A poorly chosen color could turn your deck into an eyesore while also making it more difficult to maintain. To avoid that, here are a few tips from a trusted residential roofing and decking company.
How To Match Colors
As mentioned above, your deck colors should be a part of your entire home’s exterior color scheme to create a cohesive look. When choosing paint or stain colors, consider the existing shade of your siding and trim. These colors can be pulled from your main structure and used on your decking so that everything blends together well.
If you are updating your home’s exterior paint color or replacing your roof, be sure to ask your siding or roofing company to recommend siding and shingle colors that match well with your decking.
Consider Your Landscaping
One of the main reasons for having a deck in the first place is to create an outdoor space that is conducive to recreational activities and leisure. To achieve this, be sure to consider your existing landscaping. For instance, if your landscaping is mostly green, we suggest picking a deck color with red or orange tones to complement the greenery.
