How To Choose A Color

Choosing the Best Color for your Under Deck System

Under Deck Oasis is America’s Most Trusted Under Deck System because of its superior functionality, but it is the vast color selection that makes it a favorite of so many homeowners with an eye for aesthetics. But what color is right for your deck and your home?

First, lets take a look at at your options.


Under Deck Oasis is the only under deck ceiling system to have a woodgrain finish option. This finish option is as unique as it is beautiful. The woodgrain finishes are Dark Mahogany, Rock Maple, Straight Grain Karri, Medium Teak, and Light Cherry.

Under Deck Oasis also offers solid finish panels in 7 great looking colors. Solid finishes are very easy to match to your deck and siding finish, and are more budget friendly.

The solid colors are White, Clay, Champagne, Brown, Sandy Beige, Pewter, and Wineberry; with Clay and White being the most popular for their clean and simple finish.

Under Deck Oasis also has a second finish option known as ‘rustic’ or ‘textured.’ This is an embossed woodgrain pattern that provides dimension and depth, and is just one more way that our under deck ceiling system is unique.


Matching Color and Finish Options

An existing deck structure is not a blank canvas, and you need to consider the color and stain of your deck. You also need to be aware of your siding color, and any stone or brick work under and near the deck.

Lets look at some examples of the great looking color combinations with the gutter, siding, and deck wood.

1. Keeping it Clean

Here is a great example of keeping it clean and simple by matching white under deck panels with the preexisting white trim and white deck posts, and a white seamless gutter is also used. This is one of the simplest and most effective way to keep it simple and clean. In this case, going with a warm color, or a woodgrain, would have looked garish against the cool blue of the house.

Above is another example of keeping it clean using white. As you can see, the posts and railing of this deck were preexisting white. By using white under deck panels, this homeowner achieved a nice clean look.

2. Matching ‘like’ with ‘like’

An easy way to go is to match your under deck panel color to your existing siding. In this case, the homeowner had a nice clay siding color, which was easy to match with our clay panels.

Here is a great example of matching the panel colors to the preexisting deck wood. In this case, the homeowner used our Medium Teak to match the color of this wood structure.

Here is another view of the same deck. As you can see, the only way to tell that the under deck system is made out of aluminum is to knock on it, otherwise it blends amazingly well.

In this great example, the homeowner chose pewter to match the charcoal color of the deck structure, matching the cool grays in the brick work on the home. This ads a nice layer effect to the overall look.

3. Going BOLD!

In some cases opposites attract, as is the case in the beautiful example from sunny Florida. In this case the owner went with a Straight Grain Karri against the brilliant green and bright white trim:

The darker panels really look nice from the street view.

In Conclusion…

There are a ton of different color combinations that look good, and rules are always meant to be broken. The best thing to do is figure out what is right for your particular situation.
