Considering installing a new deck in the new year? Adding a deck to your home is a wonderful idea as it adds not only an outdoor space for entertaining, but resale value to your home. One thing to consider if you’re installing a new deck will be the decking color you want to use. There are a lot of good color options available, but here are 3 popular decking colors for 2017 to consider.
With decking materials, you are essentially given two color choices: brown or gray. Last year we saw a rise in the installation of gray decking materials and we expect this trend to continue. Gray decking is the perfect compliment to many home exteriors and can match any fencing color as well. Whether you want a light gray deck or a dark gray deck railing, gray is one of the most popular decking colors for 2017 to consider.
Two-Toned Wood Decks
Another trend in the decking industry is sticking with the normal brown wood tones but to use two different tones of wood in the deck design. One tone will be the primary color of decking material, while the second tone will be used to create a border between areas of the deck. A two-toned deck is one color to consider for your deck in 2017 because it adds visual excitement and helps to separate areas of the deck.
White Deck Accents
A final popular decking color for 2017 to consider is white. White isn’t a common deck floor-board color, but this doesn’t mean it should be in your Maryland deck design. White is a perfect color for accents within your deck design and works great for railing, built-in benches, or stair risers. Not only does white look great with almost every color, it is naturally heat-resistant making your deck instantly cooler.
