How to choose the correct decking colour for your home
So we’re going to presume you’ve made the choice to go with composite decking over traditional wood planks, you may think this is the hardest decision to be made however there are far more other design decisions to be made, one of the hardest is choosing the correct colour to match your garden in terms of style and mood.
A common mistake is diving straight into the deep end and choosing designs or colours of products willy-nilly. It’s just like buying an item of clothing. You’re more sure about an item of clothing if you have tried it in store rather than viewing the product online. We have product samples that you can purchase to first see how the decking will look and amongst everything else you can be sure of the quality we provide.
First, it needs explaining that colours have moods and emotions attached to them. Each and every colour in the spectrum tells a story. You can’t go around picking colours without knowing what story or mood the colour tells because often when it comes to a product or style you will find that it will not match surroundings and is not what you were first looking for. In this blog, we will run you through the general colours of composite decking and what effects it can have on your garden and the mood and emotions behind it
Brown is a colour associated with the earth and trees which often makes it a great choice for outdoor objects. Think about it, you’d be pairing a colour perfectly with your outdoor space since a lot of outdoor space is mostly shades of browns. Brown comes across classy and has natural connotations with leather which can be used for stylish effect.
Grey is a colour of neutrality and professionalism. When used incorrectly the colour can give off the vibe of gloom and sadness, however, has been the colour of 2018 so far. Grey is as close to being a middle ground for black and white as it gets, its a popular choice for people as black and white are often too much, grey is just right. As soon as the year 2018 hit, everyone has been using the colour Grey, it’s a very modern colour, certainly a colour that is very ‘in’ right now. You can use Grey with composite decking in your garden to create a very sophisticated outdoor space.
Teak is a great choice when it comes to secondary colours, it comes with a calm and relaxing nature whilst also being sophisticated and can be used to really compliment other colours. Teak is a light brown so goes with colours from the outdoor setting.
White is another colour of neutrality and professionalism. It has been a popular choice of colour since the very start of design itself! This is because of its adaptability and versatility both with other colours and settings. An issue with using white, however, is it’s ease to looking unclean, with it being such a bold, high brightness colour, marks and dirt appear much easier on this colour so be careful!
The colour black has been known to be very modern yet also a very mysterious colour, it houses a very sleek feel when paired with homes, pairing a black decking with light wood colours has the ability to give your outdoor space a more luxurious and elegant look.
Mahogany is a great colour choice for those unsure whether to go for composite decking or traditional wood boards to use in their garden.

Mahogany is a colour that has a devilish mood, it gives off a very classical mood and a has a traditional style which makes it look just like traditional wood planks.
