Coat It to Perfection

Decks are a perennial favorite with homeowners—despite the maintenance commitments—because nothing beats the beauty of natural wood. A semi-transparent stain will allow the natural grain to show through. 

On the other hand, an opaque coating will allow you see the beautiful texture of the wood. You just need to decide what you like best. In both cases, deck stains come in a variety of colours —everything from subtle greys and browns to dark greens and greys. Wood-Shield stain comes in 36 premixed solid and semi-transparent colours. Solid colour stains can also be tinted to over 1000 colours so the sky’s the limit.

Create an Eye-Catching Colour Scheme

Outdoor projects really come alive when an eye-catching colour scheme is used. Dark colours such as Ebony, the Exterior Colour of the Year have become quite popular in recent years. Pair it with Canadian Cedar for a look your neighbours will envy.

 Worn Navy and Canadian Cedar are subtle yet incredibly upscale at the same time. Elevate your curb appeal with this combination.


A major decorating decision that you’ll need to consider is if you should stain your deck to blend in or contrast with the colour of your home’s siding. There’s no hard-and-fast rule on that. However, contrasting colours often work best—i.e., light siding against the dark wood of your deck. This allows your deck to stand out as a separate living space. In some cases, you may want the deck’s floor boards to contrast with the siding but have the railings and balusters be close in colour to the siding to tie the look together. 

Furnish and Accessorize 

Once you have the coatings and colour scheme chosen, complete your outdoor space with fashionable furnishings and accessories. Furnish your deck with outdoor chairs, chaises and sofas that provide comfort to friends and families. Tables accentuated with a colourful patio umbrella is another way to provide fashion. Among the accessories that work well on a deck are potted plants and flowers. The greenery of summer flora will likely look great in contrast to the earthy tones of your deck. Additionally, there are a variety of flowers that will add nice colour to your deck décor, including pansies, geraniums, impatiens and petunias. Last but not least, don’t forget the lighting. Overhead string lighting and lanterns add a nice finish and provides a ambience while also allowing your deck to be seen in all its glory even after the sun goes down.
