Color Schemes for Your Home

“Which deck color coordinates the best with my house?” is a commonly asked question. Making sure the outside appearance of your home flows with your new deck investment is important. Here are some timeless color schemes to consider for your home.
If the exterior of your house has a neutral color scheme such as tans and beiges, then bold, brown variegated decking may be a good choice. Color-streaking throughout the board will lend a rich, tropical look while complementing your outdoor space. Finish it off by adding a railing with a brushed-titanium finish, which offers a one-of-a-kind look.

Homes with a reddish-brown brick exterior or reddish-brown siding may want to avoid dark brown decking colors. Gray composite decking will provide an attractive color contrast and complement the brick color.

If your deck area is surrounded by glass doors or windows, you’ll want to take into consideration your indoor décor when choosing a deck color. If your home has more of a modern style, you may consider going with a simple, brown or gray deck color that has distinct, variegated colors throughout. Pairing this decking with a black cable railing system will help retain a modern look throughout.

Coastal colors or cottage, shake-style siding is a sought-after look now. Gray composite decking is a great choice if you’re looking for a subtle decking color that complements more coastal, cottage colors. Gray, subtle tones pair nicely without drawing away from your scenic views. Add a simple aluminum black railing system to complete this beachy, cottage look.

Light-gray house siding combined with a dark-toned gray decking is a simple yet eye-catching color combination. Bring a touch of warmth and rustic beauty to your backyard with a distressed composite decking color. If you’re really looking to make your deck a focal point, pair it with a white composite railing.

If you are looking for more of a cohesive flow from your home’s exterior color to your deck, then stay in the same color family. Dark-gray exterior colors paired with light-gray decking will help you maintain that continuous look throughout your outdoor space.
Also, you don’t always have to go with a white railing just because your window trim is white. A black aluminum railing coordinates with the decking color as well as the siding color.
