Deck Stain Colors For Blue Houses

Find the color for your deck


From shades of soft sky blue to a rich deep navy you can find blue houses in almost any neighborhood these days. If you have a deck it can feel challenging to find the right wood stain to pair with your home. That is why we created this helpful guide so that you can stain your deck successfully and get a look you will love for years to come.

Gorgeous & Grey

If you are staining for the first time it is important to remember that if you start light you can always go darker later. Light grey wood stain colors like Cape Cod Gray go beautifully with a blue home, but also allow you to experiment with deeper shades of color later on in the future. This is especially helpful if you plan on repainting or modernizing your home after a few years as a light grey-colored deck can easily be re-stained to match any color of home. Grey stain colors are trending right now and make a great choice if you are trying to add some curb appeal.

Rustic Red

Pairing a blue home with a ruddy wood stain color like Brick Red is a visually gorgeous match that will give your home a touch of class while still feeling playful and energizing. A red deck can really draw in the eye to a property and pairs wonderfully with many shades of blue from light periwinkles to a dark midnight black-blues.

Majestic Mahogany

When it comes to finding a good deck stain color to pair with a blue home it is important to understand the appeal of contrast. If you have a light blue colored home coupling it with a dark deck is aesthetically pleasing due to the high amounts of contrast. Evoking the color schemes of many Cape Cod bungalows a light blue home paired with a dark deck stain color, like Mahogany, is a classic choice.
