Did You Know That You Can Mix & Match The Decking Colours, Creating A Focal Point Within Your Garden Space?

Customers are often asking us whether you can mix and match the deck boards, the answer to this is simple… Yes, you can! Seeing our customers create unique deck designs is great to see and we are always keen to encourage this. Below we have outlined the different composite decking colours we believe contrast best to help aid you in making the right decision to suit your ‘already-in-place’ garden fixtures and fittings.

#1 – Antique & Grey

Our grey board complements the antique as it picks up the dual-tone finish of our antique board and the flecks of grey that run throughout.

What Furnishings Would Complement NeoTimber® Decking Board Colours?

Before choosing your furniture and accessories to decorate your deck, we suggest you have your composite decking installed before purchasing. This will then provide you with the colour you need to then colour-match with your decorative pieces. Below, we give an outline of the core colours we offer and what works best from a design and colour-match perspective.

Our Dual-Toned Composite Board – Antique

The ultimate neutral colour with a premium finish, our antique board brings the indoors outwards. Style this with natural tones of creams, beiges, pale greys and be bold enough to incorporate a pop of black. When it comes to furniture and accessories – we advise sticking to these colours and incorporating sage green-toned plants to really bring out the cool tones within the board’s colouration.

Dare To Be Different With Charcoal

Charcoal is our darkest board with its black colouration, many are daunted by adding black to their garden, but with the trend of adding pops of black to your living space, charcoal will make the perfect extension of that living space into your outdoor space. This board can be perfectly paired with vibrant colours creating a bold statement, lime greens, bright yellow and navy blue’s patterned accessories work best with this monochromatic composite decking colour board.

Keep It Sleek With Teak

NeoTimber® recommends adding creams and whites against our light oak brown teak board creating a contemporary and calming contrast within your garden space. Our teak board is the closest you will get to achieving that natural traditional timber look, particularly when opting for grooved side up. Light oak tones lend themselves to the Scandinavian trend that we are seeing in both the interiors world and now in garden furnishing design.

Grey Is Our Blank Canvas Board

The sky is the limit with our grey coloured board offering the ultimate contemporary flooring solution to your outdoor space. Because of the neutral tones that feed throughout the length of the board, any colour will pair nicely. We would recommend the use of pastels for a summery vibe or deep navy and sky blues for a complementing contrast against the deep grey flecks within the boards, especially in the Advanced and Deluxe ranges.

Stay Traditional With Chocolate

Our darkest brown board, sitting between dark walnut and ebony, NeoTimber’s chocolate composite decking is our most traditional colour, bringing the true beauty of timber decking to your garden. Burnt oranges, deep reds, creams and olive greens are our top picks for accessorising this colour of board in your garden.
