The effects of sunlight on decking
What colour decking should I go for? What colour decking is available? What colour decking matches with…..? If you’re decking out your garden these questions are incredibly important – especially if you’re considering a deck that lasts as long as a Fitrite deck. At Fitrite we have a total of 7 colours of decking in a variety of different shades, as well as 11 different picket colours (and here’s a secret – we can colour-match those to your requirements!) Trying to decide on Ebony, or grey range or even or traditional range can be a hard decision. Don’t stress, there are a number of tips that help make choosing the right coloured deck a breeze that we are going to explore now.
The traditional colour group
Often when many think of decking they have the tendency to think about more traditional colours as many have had wooden decking for a long period of time. However, you make also be unsure on which colour you’d like your new deck to be, the chances may be that you have a colour group which you prefer. You may love the look of a natural wood deck and therefore more likely to lean towards the browner range. The best way in grouping all of the options is to think of them as ‘Greys’ and then ‘Traditional’ and picking which colour group is most suited to yourself so that you can make your decision process a whole lot smoother.
Think about your home
Your home is clearly the biggest feature of your outdoor living space so you will want your garden space to complement your home! By choosing a colour to match with your windows you ensure that your deck continues your living space to the outside uninterrupted. Choosing a contrasting colour is an excellent way to compartmentalise your space, making smaller gardens feel larger. Have bi-fold doors in Anthracite? We thoroughly recommend a Graphite or Ash Grey deck board coupled with an Anthracite edge.
The Grey Tones
The Grey range at Fitrite comes in 3 different shades; Anthracite, Graphite, and Ash Grey.
Dark tones can complement your home and give more of a modern look to your outdoor space. The Grey range is increasingly becoming more and more popular, check out some recent images and see what you think!
If you’re trying to create a huge visual impact, one thing you may want to consider is the shape of your deck!
