Using Color to Transform Your Deck This Summer

May 29, 2018

1. Harmony—Inside and Out

Homeowners today view their decks as an extension of their interior living spaces. Why not further unify these spaces using color? TimberTech has numerous shades to create a seamless experience, including gray and white tones (like new Whitewash Cedar) that are on-trend with kitchens and other interior spaces. In fact, our best-selling colors this year are two beautiful gray tones: Slate Gray (above) and Silver Maple (below).

2. Small Accents Make a Big Statement

You don’t have to go big to be bold. Use contrasting color as an accent to add that special finishing touch to your outdoor space. Think of pairing white railings and trim with a warm rustic brown (above). Or, for a little elegance and drama, use a touch of black with a shade of gray like the rooftop space below.

3. Borders—Far From Boring

Color can also be used to create an attractive border—also called picture framing. This technique adds dimension to your deck and can also accentuate a unique shape or design. Consider combining light and dark colors for a bold impact.


4. Mix It Up

If you can’t decide on a single color, don’t worry. Many homeowners are combining complementary colors together to create a distinctive look. And unlike wood which would require the hassle of staining individual pieces, TimberTech decking allows you to simply choose different decking colors and mix and match as needed. Weaving in multi-toned deck boards is an ideal way to put your unique stamp on your outdoor living space.

Perhaps the only thing more important than selecting a color for your deck is selecting one that will last. TimberTech colors are backed by an industry-leading 30-Year Limited Fade & Stain and a Limited Lifetime Warranty. And, we have the widest selection available in the industry. Explore all of our deck colors and pick a few of your favorites to try out at home. We offer FREE samples!
