What Color of Trex Composite Decking Is Right for Me?

One of the many reasons we recommend Trex composite decking to our customers is that it comes in countless style options. However, the downside to so much variety is that some homeowners have a hard time deciding which color is the best option for their outdoor space. 

If you’re in the same situation, you’ve come to the right place for help! Below, learn more about the color options that Trex offers and how to make the best choice for your decking project. 

Trex Composite Decking Color Options

Currently, Trex offers 23 different color options, all inspired by nature. All of the colors fit into one of three color families: browns, greys, and reds. Whether you want something that looks light and bright or a deep hue that makes a statement, Trex truly has a color option for every homeowner.

Tips to Choose the Right Trex Color for Your Deck

Now that you know more about the color options available to you, here are the most important things to consider when making your decision. 

The Style of Your Home

First, think about your home’s style. The deck color you’d choose for a Mediterranean-style home is likely very different from what you’d choose for a Victorian. Colors in the grey family are usually a great option for Cape Cod homes, while browns are ideal for Craftsman-style homes. 

Of course, you don’t have to follow these suggestions. At the end of the day, choose a color that you love. 

The Color of Your Home

Next, consider the color of your home’s exterior. Ideally, you’ll want to choose a deck color that complements your siding. As a good rule of thumb, if your siding is a cool color, like blue, then you’ll want a cool-colored deck, like grey. 

On the other hand, warm sidings like red brick or beige vinyl siding would pair great with a brown deck. 

The Landscape Around Your Home

Oftentimes, homeowners design a deck without thinking about the area that will surround it. Head outside to take a look around your yard and the view that you’ll see from your deck. Which decking color would most complement the landscape?

If you have a bright garden full of different, colorful flowers, a vibrant red deck might be visually overwhelming. In that case, a more neutral brown or grey may be a better option. 

The Outdoor Furniture You Plan to Use

You’ll also want to think about how you plan to decorate your deck. More specifically, think about the furniture you will use on it. You want don’t want your furniture to clash with your decking, so keep that in mind when choosing your color palette. 

For example, black outdoor furniture would look great with a grey deck, while light wicker furniture would best complement a red or brown deck. 

How Much Sun Your Yard Gets

Finally, think about the amount of sunlight you get in your backyard. If your deck will sit in the direct sun for most of the day, you might want to choose a lighter color for your deck. This will help keep the area a bit cooler during the summer. 

If your backyard doesn’t get much sun, then you won’t have to worry as much about a darker color attracting more heat.
