Warm v. Cool
Undertones ~ just like choosing the best colors to complement your skin, composite decking colors also have a warm or cool undertone that can enhance and work well with your home’s outdoor color combinations. Take into consideration the trim, color of stone or other wood accents, siding, and doors. You will want to select a color with a similar warm or cool undertone to present your new deck in the best light.
Flow From Inside to Outdoors
One other thing you may want to take into consideration is your internal flooring colors, especially when your deck connects to a doorway which when opened invites you or your guests to flow easily from indoors to outdoors. Again, watch for complementary, contrasting, and undertones and avoid a disconnect between colors and keep the feeling that everything in and outside of your home all feels as one unit.
This is a key to success in any project – DIY or hired. Having a sample of the product is the best way to place it in the environment to ensure your choice is the best option. You’ll confirm the colors complement each other, there is enough contrast to please the eye, and as always avoid the too warm v. too cool color choice. Our samples are available in a size that will help you or your designer be assured of the correct choice.
