Deck Stain Color

Gail lewis asked 10 years ago

My house is two years old with a siding on it. I have a wrap around deck on my house and I want to put a stain on it this year. But having some trouble on what color stain I should put on the deck. I also have white trim around my windows and doors and down the sides. Can you PLEASE help me before the summer comes.

Any dark wood stain will look good… like a dark walnut…

Agree; A brown colored stain will look the best. Try to stay away from reds.

A good way to see the color before it is applied is to take a piece of wood that approximates your deck wood to a paint store, a real paint store not Home Depot, and ask if they can apply a sample to it before purchasing. Most will do this.
