Relax Out Back
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.
You should also think about your exterior color and trim to be sure these don’t clash. Considering other colors on furniture, stone or brick can be helpful when choosing a stain or determining if you want to go for a more modern or natural look. If there is a focal point such as a fire pit or dining area, you can match the shade of your exterior to transition seamlessly into your centerpiece, or use an accent color to make it stand out. Repainting or re-staining your deck can seem like a daunting process, but we can help you evaluate your space and determine the best design to meet your needs for a look that you’ll be proud to flaunt and incorporate into your outdoor activities.
You should always test out stains you’re interested in on wood you intend to use before fully coating your deck. Bring your backyard to life with Richard’s Paint selection and don’t worry about maintenance. We offer durable and stylish colors to enhance your home’s curb appeal.
