Gray Stain Colors for Patios

Great grays to give class to your outdoor space

Staining your patio is the perfect way to add some personality to your house; whether you’re matching your home or selecting a color that contrasts and obliges for attention; gray patio stains are the current homeowner trend. And do you know why? Because gray goes with everything. A white home, a blue home, or any other color, gray can complement all houses perfectly. Since there are many gray shades and tones to choose from, we took the time to find the best ones for you. Below are four amazing gray stain choices for your patio.

Blue Sapphire

The name suggests otherwise, but this color is more gray than blue. However, it has just enough flare, as if actual Sapphires were infused to keep it looking bright and enthusiastic. The Blue Sapphire patio stain from Olympic could be exactly what you need to give your home some character. Dark enough to apply to almost any type of wood, it exudes enough energy to keep it displaying a powerful, blueish warmth.



If what you want is a more classic gray, then you can stop looking for stain colors here because Cinder is all you need. This color is natural to the core and for those who don’t need to call attention. It may be called Cinder, but it is simply gray in most people's eyes. This shade of grey will leave your wooden patio resembling a stone or concrete material.


River's Run

River’s Run is an organic color that nearly blends in with nature as it resembles an authentic stone or concrete material. If you want to keep a natural look for your deck, use River’s Run. This gray patio stain is far from shallow; with a waterfall of primitive, natural color that transports your patio to the depths of nature. 



As the darkest color we've selected, Wenge is sure to please those who are looking for something with edge in their gray wood stain colors. This color could be described as charcoal if it didn't have a brown shade to it. Gray stain colors like Wenge are perfectly accentuated to add a dark outline to your aesthetic and this couldn't be more apparent than with Wenge from Olympic.


In Conclusion

A color that provides a base, an outline, and an accentuation, gray is essential to creating a prominent palette. Olympic offers these colors to complete your patio's look.
