Decide the Best Trex Decking Color For You
When you’re deciding which color of Trex to go with for your deck upgrade, there are many factors to consider. This material will last for 25 years, so it’s important that you’re happy with your choice. We’ll help you make the right decision with these simple steps!
Keep the Color of Your Home in Mind
To ensure that your deck flows with the rest of the house (and it doesn’t blatantly look like it was an add-on or afterthought), you must consider the exterior color of your home.
For example, if your house color has warm undertones (warm beige, tan, off-white, brown), it’s best to choose from the red and brown families of Trex decking. Consider the following:
- Biscayne in Transcend Lineage
- Spiced Rum in Transcend
- Select Saddle in Select
- Beach Dune in Enhance
If the color of your home has cool undertones (gray, stark white, blue), going with colors from the gray family of Trex decking would be best. Consider the following:
- Rainier in Transcend Lineage
- Gravel Path in Transcend
- Pebble Gray in Select
- Rocky Harbor in Enhance
2. Complement Surrounding Landscaping and Furniture
The surrounding landscaping and furniture on your deck can help you determine the right color. If you have a mostly green landscape, colors in the red family would compliment it best. If your deck is near a garden with lots of different vibrant colors, a more neutral color with a brown or gray undertone would be a good option.
The same thought process can apply to your outdoor furniture. Often, homeowners will build their deck and then decorate it with furniture and accessories. But if you already have furniture you’ll be using, use that to help you determine a pleasing color palette.
Plus, if your deck connects directly to your home, you can also take inspiration from your indoor flooring to create a natural flow of color.
3. Order Samples and Take a Closer Look
Looking at a deck color on your phone or computer screen isn’t the same as seeing it in person. We recommend you look online and find a small collection of colors you want to choose from. Then, order a sample of each and take a closer look at them in person.
Be sure to view the samples outside in natural light where your deck will be. Take a look at them during different times of the day and with your exterior lights both on and off. Different lighting can drastically change how a color looks and you want to be sure you pick a color you’ll always be happy with.
