Composite Decking Colours

When designing an outdoor deck, it’s worth spending time considering how it’ll look, not just now but in years to come. Composite decking colours come in a spectrum—from sandy browns and subtle greys through the different timber tones to black.

True Grain Colour System™

Our unique True Grain Colour System™ is a blend of special pigmentation that replicates the subtle variation and depth of tones seen in natural timber – and ensures no two boards are the same colour.

True Grain Colour System

When choosing composite decking colours, the biggest question is whether to contrast with or complement the surroundings. Take note of the colours of the nearest buildings’ roof, walls and window frames, any neighbouring fences or ornaments, and any stand-out plants, trees or other natural features.

If warm undertones dominate the surroundings, avoid cooler decking shades like muted grey, black and lighter, sandy colours and instead go for the warmer end of the spectrum, such as red-browns and natural timber.

Also, consider the type of house or building the decking will border: contemporary architecture house may benefit from black or grey decking, while older builds or country cottages may be better suited to more natural-looking browns.

Darker boards create a much more modern aesthetic but can be prone to heat retention. If the decking is to be installed in a site that receives prolonged sunshine with little shade, choosing lighter colours could help keep the decking cool.

Authentic Shades and Variations

All our products have an intentionally varied appearance that resembles the tones you’d find in natural wood.

The variations range from slight (V1), to moderate (V2), and substantial (V3). This guide outline how much variation you should expect in each product.

Black decking denotes clean lines and minimalism and forms a bold canvas upon which bright plants or furniture stand out. As black-framed windows and roofing are among the biggest home trends of the moment, coordinating decking in the same shades maintains a cohesive and fashionable look.

HD Deck Dual in ‘Carbon’ is a dark woodgrain set in a reversible board alongside the shade ‘Antique’; the minimalist and modern ‘Lava’ shade is available in HD Deck XS and HD Deck 150, both grooved and reversible boards; ‘Black Oak’ is one of the colour available in the versatile HD Deck 3D, which comes in reversible boards with wood grain on one side and contemporary grooves on the other.
