Brilliant wood stain colors for any project

Staining your deck goes beyond just picking the right product. You have to select the right colour for your deck and your decorating style. These four wood stain colours are not for the faint of heart, but they can add exactly the perfect amount of fun and function for the right home and homeowner. There's an impressive variety of colours of wood stain available, and selecting deck stain colours for your outdoor room can let you make your mark. 

Copper Verde

Copper Verde is one of the perfect stain colours for a mountain home or cabin in the woods. The bold green hues mimic nature's own colour scheme, and it may even remind you of hiking and camping in the wild. This bold colour is great for covering over darker deck boards like well-weathered wood. Copper Verde will make you want to invite everyone over for s'mores and ghost stories. 


Purple Velvet

Purple Velvet is a vibrant, gorgeous shade of purple that is one of the most vivid colours of wood stain. This shocking colour is ideal for a chic deck for your city pad but it's also sure be the perfect pick-me-up for a quaint cottage. This stylish colour makes a great backdrop for sleek, modern furniture and festive cocktail parties. Dark wood stains like Purple Velvet are great for revitalizing tired wooden decks or any wood surface that needs a touch of charm. 


Midnight Blue

Midnight Blue is a rich and mysterious colour that is great for a nautical theme. Anchors and ropes will feel right at home as you take the sea as inspiration for your deck. Midnight Blue is perfect for covering a light or dark wooden deck, and it will revive a weathered one well. Choosing crisp accents in white as well as furniture of natural wood create the perfect backdrop for a relaxing afternoon cookout or a formal graduation party. 


Coral Sand

As even the name suggests, Coral Sand is one of those wood stain colours that screams beach. This light pink hue is perfect for a beach home and throwing a summertime party with margaritas and reggae music. Coral Sand is perfect for covering over light woods such as pine. For an added bonus, it's sure to coordinate perfectly with some pink flamingos in the front year.


In this day and age, wood stains come in a wide variety of colours to suit every taste. Beyond merely protecting your wooden deck, the deck stain colour that you choose can create a large and pleasing visual impact. Staining a deck is quick and easy with the right preparation, and you might find that the hardest part of the job is selecting your favorite colour from all of the beautiful choices. Vibrant colours can improve the feel of your deck, protect the wood that your deck is made from, and set the mood for a space that is as unique as the person who lives there.
