As your go-to spot to relax, entertain, or reflect, your outdoor living space is an extension of your personal style.

In terms of decking color options, TimberTech has one of the most expansive portfolios on the market – meaning you can lock in the right deck color combinations to put your personal stamp on your backyard escape.

Application Ideas

As you decide which deck color combinations speak to you, consider the different ways you might apply creative deck design to your space.

Picture Frame Border

TimberTech PRO-Legacy-Tigerwood-MochaAccents-Picture-Frame-Border

A picture frame border refers to those deck boards that run perpendicular to the deck inlay – in effect, the boards that would appear to be the “frame” of your deck if viewed from above.

  • Polishes the overall look and feel of your outdoor living space.
  • Serves as a compelling conversation starter.
  • Makes smaller spaces pop thanks to a sense of curated cool.

Unique Inlays


Within the deck surface, you can introduce eye-catching inlays to elevate the look and feel of your space. The larger deck surface is made of boards applied in one direction (or pattern), whereas a smaller, contrasting inlay – typically at the center of the deck – features a different board pattern.

An eye-catching inlay serves as both a focal point for your space and a natural gathering spot when entertaining. Combining your favorite deck color combinations with a geometric ‘centerpiece’ can be the difference between a classic and a truly customized backyard build.

Apply color-contrasting deck boards diagonally – or even go for a complementary herringbone pattern – and watch your neighbors turn different shades of green with envy.

Mixed Decking


Why pick just one richly hued, nature-inspired deck board color when you can choose multiple? Mixed deck color combinations let you:

  • Showcase your eye for design.
  • Keep your outdoor living space as unique as you are.
  • Capture the visual intrigue of deck color combinations without the complexity of applying boards in different patterns.

DECK DESIGN TIP: Choose three or four hues in the same color palette – for example, different browns or different grays – for a final product that looks visually complex yet cohesive.
