Deck Design Ideas: Tri-Color Decking
What Defines This Look?
You guessed it: three different deck board colors. More meaningfully, tri-color decking uses light, medium, and darker-hued boards for a seriously creative outdoor living. The dynamic deck pictured above was designed by Matt Daly, founder of California’s Water & Earth Landscape Design, using three hues from our TimberTech® PRO® Legacy Collection. This look:
- Starts with an overarching color family and uses three underlying hues for the board colors.
- Echoes the natural, earthy hues of the surrounding landscape.
- Is inspired by post-1920s modernism yet feels wholly of-the-moment in 2020.
What Are the Benefits?
- A Deck as Unique as You Are: Daly knew that the only sure way to create a beautiful, varied deck that would retain its color and individuality over time was to go with a composite deck material. He selected three warm, earthy hues in our TimberTech PRO Legacy collection — decking made from a premium capped composite that blends beauty with technology for the ultimate low-maintenance deck. Each of the hues complement and accentuate the other two, making for an outdoor living space full of personality.
- An Inviting Interplay of Tones: Applying the tri-colored deck boards in a random – yet purposeful – configuration delivers a look that’s playful, casual, and attention-grabbing. The varied hues and texture in this design recall a diversity in tones typically reserved for a collection of Frank Lloyd Wright’s greatest hits in modern architecture. As the demand for modernist home exteriors rises, this look keeps the curb value of your home high.
