At first, you may think that choosing a decking color for your new dock or deck is going to be easy. After all, you can just choose a color that you like, right? Not exactly. There’s a reason why great interior designers make a lot of money! They know how to contrast and complement different colors and how to accent the positive while overcoming the … less positive! Here are a few tips that may help you the next time you’re trying to pick the perfect decking color for your PVC decking boards.
First, it’s important to know the different categories you will find with AccuDock’s Wolf PVC decking colors:
- Tropical hardwoods that are rich, variegated colors with natural wood grain texture such as teak wood, amber wood, and black walnut, to name a few.
- Cool seaside decking options in solid, coastal tones such as harbor grey and sand castle.
You will want to consider the existing colors that surround the area that you’re going to be decking. If you’re looking at purchasing a floating dock, for example, you will want to compare your decking options against the color of your home, consider the colors of any existing decks or porches attached to your home, or you may want to try to match your PVC decking boards to the color of your existing floating dock.
If you can easily see your home from the water’s edge, it’s a smart idea to try to find a color that will complement your home. For example, if your home has a white exterior, then you may want to go with something a little darker for your decking board color. Remember: you don’t have to go matchy-matchy. Sometimes the best look you’ll find is when you contrast different light and dark Wolf PVC decking colors.
The choice of decking is often the most important and personal decision when it comes to the design of your waterfront property. If you have questions about choosing the best decking color for your floating dock, we have answers – contact us today!
