Surprising Deck Colours for First Time Home Owners

You don’t always need to stick to browns when staining the wood on your first deck or patio. In fact, there is an entire world of stain colour to consider. For the first-time homeowner, these fresh, modern colours can add an uncommon, personal touch to your new home.

Semi-Transparent Pearl Gray

Pearl Gray sits in a subtle space between gray and brown, making it a great match for an wide range of decor. Gray tones are perfect choices for all seasons and moods, and using a semi-transparent stain adds an additional natural element in the retained visibility of the wood grain.

Solid Amsterdam

Choosing a blue colour for a deck or patio is an unusual and eye catching choice that will bring a nautical feel to your outdoor space. Amsterdam can be easily matched with a variety of different outdoor furniture colours and styles. Using a solid stain allows the colour to take center stage over the original wood grain.

Solid Bubinga

This jewel toned red is a perfect choice for adding colour while keeping an outdoor space sophisticated and elegant. Bubinga is a versatile shade of red, ready to be dressed up or down depending on the furniture, allowing for infinite decorative possibilities. Traditional red tones are one of the more popular wood stain colors, and this remains true even among this uniquely colourful category.

Solid Backwoods

A new deck stain colour like Backwoods can help bring a stale deck or patio back to life. This beautiful dark green is more than a classic brown, while still neutral enough to match with many different furniture styles.

Choosing non-traditional colours for wood stain is a fun and exciting process. Turn curb-appeal on its head and add a personal, compelling touch to your new exterior. Find your perfect exterior stain colour today.
