If you’re looking to take your outdoor space to the next level but are inquiring about which composite decking and aluminum railing products will work best with your home’s aesthetic, you’re at the right place! With a number of product lines to consider, the decision process can become a little overwhelming.

Not to worry! We’re sharing four unique outdoor deck themes as a guide to discover your own personal style and help you make beautiful aesthetic selections with ease. Making sure the outside appearance of your home flows with your new deck investment is important. Let’s take a closer look at these specialized, mapped-out outdoor deck themes.

Timeless Terrace 
When you combine these decking and railing colors, your outdoor space will be set up with a timeless design that will never go out of style. Vista Decking in Driftwood is a great color option for homes with white siding and black accent elements. We recommend incorporating ALX Classic Railing in Matte Black paired with Classic Aluminum Balusters in Matte Black. Of course, fusing in some rich greenery into your outdoor space is a great way to add a pop of color for an added bonus.

Rustic Retreat
There’s something about brown tones that creates a cozy yet rustic and natural feeling to a house. Voyage Decking In Khaya goes well with neutral color siding such as tans and beiges. This true brown color will be sure to make a bold statement when paired with our ALX Classic Railing in Weathered Brown featuring Estate Aluminum Balusters in Weathered Brown. For a unique look, try bringing in some bold fabric colors such as a honey-yellow for your outdoor furniture.

Coastal Oasis
You don’t have to live on the waterfront to bring the seaside vibes to your backyard. Voyage Decking in Tundra fuses nicely with greys and light blue undertones. The color-streaking throughout the board will lend a rich, tropical look while complementing your outdoor space. We recommend using ALX Contemporary Pre-assembled Railing in Textured White and Solar Post Caps in White. Privacy Diamond Lattice in White is a great addition if you're looking to improve the privacy of your outdoor area while adding another layer of color and cohesiveness with your railing and post caps.

Bohemian Backyard
There’s something about lounging on your deck that really connects you to a place of relaxation and ease. This color palette does not disappoint when it comes to a peaceful place to pass time. Vault Decking in Hickory pairs nicely with neutral browns, tans and off-white colored homes. Homes with a reddish-brown brick exterior or siding work well with this decking, as it complements the red-toned variegation in the wood grain. Our recommendation is to accessorize with bronze elements such as our ALX Contemporary Pre-assembled Railing in Bronze.

If you are looking for more of a cohesive flow from your home’s exterior color to your deck, then stay in the same color family: gray siding with gray decking or brown siding with brown decking. Otherwise, there really is no right or wrong when it comes to selecting that “perfect decking” for your home. Make your outdoor space an expression of your own personal style!
