When decks are stained in traditional browns and clears they can sometimes feel mundane. Traditionally colored decks can go with any style of home, however a truly bright and brilliant deck brings an air of modernity. A punch of style to a home can up it a notch in terms of curb appeal.

Here are three wild deck stain colour choices that your neighbors will envy you over!

Ocean Mist

Ocean Mist is a pastel milky blue that gives off a true vacation vibe and would look great for a home near the lake or a seaside cottage. Its classic light blue wood stain colour evokes a relaxing feeling and a quaint New England charm. Choose Ocean Mist for a maritime feel for your deck.



Named after a flowering tree that is itself a highly-sought after lumber, Cumaru evokes tropical oasis feelings with its deep ruddy and rustic natural tones. Choose Cumaru for a deck that requires a sense of class and sophistication added to it.


Cranberry Sauce

Whimsically named but deeply powerful in terms of colour brilliance, Cranberry Sauce is a great wood stain colour that can add a real touch of character to a deck, especially one surrounded by a lot of contrasting green nature. Enjoy the deep, nearly regal wine-like tones of Cranberry Sauce on your deck for a truly beautiful outdoor entertaining space.


It doesn’t take much to really boost your curb appeal and make your neighbors envy your deck. All you need is an open mind and a bit of brilliant color. Now, to find the right stain for your deck click the link below.
