CONSIDER CONTRASTING COLORS
The easiest way to make your deck stand out is by implementing a contrasting colored design. Consider using an accent color as a deck perimeter to create a frame or as a design inlay. Use black or white painted railings to enhance the color of your deck boards. For more information on painting and staining your wood deck, CLICK HERE.
