Odds are, you already have a color family in mind for your decking composite project. Now, it’s just a matter of narrowing it down based on the color of your home’s exterior and your own personal taste.

Anyway, the following tips are designed to help you pick the perfect color. Whether you choose to stick to them or not is entirely up to you. After all, it’s your deck – you can choose to design it however you like!


We all know the old-school rule of making sure that your belt matches your shoes. But you shouldn’t apply that rule to your deck.

Using the same exact color as your home’s exterior for your deck is going to look a bit bland. Instead of matching, you should try to choose colors that complement one another.

Look at the following project picture from COOWIN, the wall color is white, and the decking around the swimming pool is dark brown color. It matched very well and makes the whole decoration has a great layering effect.

As you’re planning your deck’s design, think about how you can create an interesting contrast.

If your exterior walls are white or light colors, like the above project, any darker colors decking will work very well.


As you probably remember from the color wheel you learned in school, red, orange, and yellow are warm colors, while green, blue, and purple are cool.

Even if you don’t have to keep all of the colors exactly the same, we sincerely recommended you to stick to collocated warm and cold for both your deck and home exteriors. Such as Walnut color and composite decking grey.  

Such as the following project picture from COOWIN, is an OAK color deck board, a white wall and the red roof looks very warm and comfortable. This is also suitable for your garden decking too.  


Your deck color isn’t just for looks – it can also serve a functional purpose. For the wood composite decking which is used for the outdoor environment. Especially for the swimming pool side, Dark surfaces absorb light and heat up more quickly than light-colored surfaces. Which reflect light and keep your deck feeling cooler. That’s not to say that a light color deck in direct sunlight can’t heat up in the summer months. But it will be a bit kinder to your bare feet than a dark brown deck.  

For the swimming poolside and composite dock decking project, grey composite decking boards are suitable. And also some of the light colors, such as Red Pine color and Redwood color, that all beautiful colors for the deck.
