    We’re not saying there’s anything wrong with opting for a classic natural wood stain for your new decking addition but, before you do, take a look at these amazingly colorful painted deck ideas!

    A pop of color on your decking can really enhance the individual character of your exterior space: choose from cool sophisticated creams and taupes, bright and breezy blues or dramatically elegant black.

    Adding color to the floor of your porch or deck also has the effect of defining the space, thus making your deck a clear and separate “outdoor room” and giving your yard the illusion of being bigger than it is.

    Using paint effects will further enhance your home’s individuality: distressed and weathered paint effects on your exterior deck floor boards will help create a relaxed, laid-back feel, pretty stenciled patterns give off quirky bohemian vibes, whilst striped decking floors have plenty of playful charm.

    So which way to go? Get some inspiration and ideas from our pick of 32 best colorful deck and porch ideas below and see just how easily you can make your outside space suit your own personality.

    I have a dark brown cedar house with cream trim around windows, and was thinking of paint the deck, which wraps around the house, a sage green – would this work. Thank you.
