Composite Decking Colours: What Are Your Options?

21 February 2024

Choosing the colour of your composite decking is one of the most exciting steps in any garden project because it can have a big impact on the appearance and atmosphere of the space. 

You might already have a good idea of what you want your garden to look like, or you may be searching for colour inspiration. To help you get started, we’ve put together this guide on how to choose your composite decking colours.


What we'll cover:

Which Composite Decking Colours Can You Choose From?

Whether you want a natural earthy tone, or a sleek black one to give your garden an air of sophistication, Eurocell composite decking comes in 14 different shades, so you can choose the right one for your space. Modern composite decking can last for more than 20 years, so be sure to pick a shade that you will love as your home and lifestyle changes. 

Eurocell’s composite decking colour family includes classics like grey, brown, black and beige. Within each family, we have a range of shades – from lighter colours to more intense and deeper ones. 

Grey Composite Decking

Within grey composite decking, theres plenty of shades to choose from.

Light grey, like our salt lake silver composite decking, is a great option if you want a glam, chic and balanced outdoor space. Grey has become an increasingly popular colour choice for home decor in recent years, so it’s perfect if you're in search of a softer and neutral colour that will match a range of plants, furnishings and accessories.

Darker grey, like our charcoal clarity decking, can add a sense of elegance to your outdoor space. It suits a larger garden because it can add dimension and give it a luxurious feel. It’s a modern and aesthetically pleasing colour that won’t go out of style. You can add pops of colour – such as bright plants – for maximum impact.

In our grey colour family, we also have graphite which is a deeper grey; argent which balances dark and lighter grey; and flint which has a natural aesthetic. 


Brown Composite Decking

Brown composite decking has an earthy and natural feel to it, and closely resembles wooden decking. It’s a great option if you want to create an inviting, warm and comfortable space. Compared to wooden decking, composite decking is lower maintenance and longer-lasting, so you benefit from the wooden aesthetic without the hassle.

In this colour family, we have spiced oak which has a traditional and rich feel to it, and wild brown, walnut and khaya which are deeper shades that add depth to your space. You could even opt for a shade of brown that matches your interior hardwood floors to extend your living space into the garden too.

Black Composite Decking

Black composite decking is stylish, sophisticated and sleek, and with the right furnishings, it can evoke a sense of opulence. 

Our ancient black colour looks rich and commands attention and, paired with light coloured furniture, plants and pops of colour, it can create a visually-stunning garden. If you’re nervous about choosing black, you could opt for our midnight forma decking which is a deep grey and slightly softer.


Beige Composite Decking

Silver birch colour is part of our beige colour family. Beige is a good option if you want something neutral that blends in, but also has a sense of warmth and comfort. Beige decking can create a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere, and it won’t go out of style. 

How To Choose What Colour Decking is Right For You

Here are a few things you should consider when choosing between composite decking colours: 

Consider Your Space

Taking a look at your garden's layout, size and surrounding space will give you a better idea of what colours will suit it. For example, if you have a lawn, trees and flowers, you could opt for a shade within our brown or beige colour family. Natural and earthy tones will complement the natural greenery, and if your garden is smaller, a lighter colour will make it feel more spacious. 

Matching and contrasting colours

Depending on your style, you may choose colours that match or contrast with the colours on your exterior.

For example, if you have wooden fences or sheds, and exposed brick on your property, a deeper brown will complement it well. However, if your window and doors are a deep grey or black, you could go for a deeper shade of decking that matches and ties those features together. 

If your property is painted white or beige, black or dark grey decking will create contrast and impact. 

How do you want it to look and feel? 

Many people want a relaxing and calm outdoor space that reflects nature. If this is you, a shade from our brown or beige colour family could be the right one for you. 

Or, if you want a glam, modern and showstopping garden, a deeper grey or black could be the right colour for you. With the addition of lighting, you’ll be able to create the perfect dining and party space.

Accessories and garden furniture 

The furniture and accessories you have or plan to buy may help to sway your composite decking colour decisions. You may go for neutral decking and furniture with accents of colour with accessories like rugs, pillows or plant pots, or dark charcoal decking with contrasting white seating.
