A deck is often the statement piece of your backyard. It is a place to share with friends and family for conversation or celebration, and it makes an ideal space to enjoy a peaceful sunlit morning waking up with some coffee. There are many things to consider when deciding how your deck should look. Opacity, nearby colors and wood types are all important factors and can drastically change the atmosphere of your backyard.
When choosing the opacity of the stain, consider how much natural wood grain you would like to see and how that might blend with other surrounding textures such as the home’s exterior. You can choose from clear, translucent, semi-transparent, and solid.
