Prepare for summer fun by painting the deck in bright whites, blues, yellows or muter grays and warm orange tones. While painting for the summer is exciting, remember that this paint will be on the deck year round.
Light blues and white are good choices for areas with a warm climate year round or near the beach. HGTV experts suggest having fun with alternating color patterns, such as a black and white stripe for those who have children that like to play outside.
Another option is selecting a color that matches the wood floors inside the house. Lay a few paint samples against the floor for comparison and pick the best match to help pull the interior of the home together with the exterior.
