Paint? Yes paint, not stain. Everyone has a preference but I love the look of painted decks. The solid colors give complete coverage and I love the way it looks – so clean and neat.
I recently did a Virtual Design for a client and want to share a really awesome color with you.
If you love the outdoors like I do, this Blue Spruce will just extend right into the backyard. You can brighten it up with colorful flowers and decor of course.
This deck paint is a solid paint color – not a stain. You will not be able to see any of the wood grain through this paint so make sure that is the look you want.
What are the benefits of going with a paint instead of a stain? It lasts longer. A painted deck will last up to 8 years where as a stained deck will roughly last for 2-5 years depending on what level of stain you use.
You can also try a gray to coordinate with your walk way and stay more neutral. If you live in a super hot climate the lighter color will retain less heat so keep that into consideration as well. Shady area? Go with the green.
So what color will you paint your deck? If you need help with this process, I’d love to help!
