What color deck with grey house?

cmm6797September 25, 2011

We have a grey house with white trim and are trying to decide on a color for the deck (which will be a composite). We have several samples of grey composites but they seem too dull against the house color. I'm wondering if anyone has done a brown color composite with a grey house...very hard for me to visualize without seeing it and there are very few pictures online.

We are thinking of using white posts to tie into the trim color.

Thank you!

I would not put anything on it if it is a composite. We have some that are a pinkish color in our development and no one puts anything on them and they are retaining their new appearance. If you put something on it, then you will have maintenance.

Bigkahuna built a gorgeous ipe deck (brown) with white posts on a gray house with white trim. Linked below.

Bigkahuna's deck is gorgeous! What is the price difference between the two though?

A few examples of composite decks that I found:
