5 Tips for selecting the right colors for your outdoor furniture

Colors play an important role when it comes to designing your outdoor spaces. As an extension of your interiors, you must design your outdoor spaces to compliment and reflect the design aesthetics and color schemes – in a comprehensive way. 

Your outdoor spaces are a welcoming extension to your house. A deck, patio, sunroom, garden, terrace, balcony – these all offer outdoor designing opportunities to enjoy cool breezes, breathe in fresh air and spend time outdoors without really leaving your home.

Just as we prioritize the right color selection of our interior elements, selecting colors for outdoor furniture should also be done with great consideration

selecting the best color for your outdoor furniture

Choosing the right colors for your outdoor furniture is the key to a beautiful looking space. Answering a few questions listed below, will give you a good start to start thinking more clearly.

  • Question 1: Is the color of your outdoor furniture in sync with other furniture pieces in your home?
  • Question 2: Does the color scheme match or contrast other elements in your outdoor space?
  • Question 3: Are your indoor and outdoor spaces cohesive in design and color?

Once you have developed a fair understanding by answering the above, you can put together a wish list of colors for your outdoor furniture. 

Further in the article, we have a list of key points that will help you to make the right decision in selecting the best color for your outdoor furniture:

1. reflect your style

From outdoor furniture and accessories to accent walls – the color palette you choose should reflect your style and elevate your home’s architectural details. Your outdoor spaces should fit seamlessly with the rest of your home and showcase your personal style.

2. take cues from existing elements

Considering your inner home’s style, wall paint colors, flooring and décor elements can be a great start to narrow down your choices further. Look around you homes architectural details and various elements to see if the chosen hues fit the aesthetics.

3. avoid mixing too many colors

Excessive colors can lead to overload. If you have a busy outdoor space with many elements (dining table, seating, firepit, planters, etc.) – we strongly recommend getting the right balance of colors – without repeating too much of a single color or mixing too many clashing colors.

4. white maybe off the list

As much as we love the appeal of a white chair in the backyard on a sunny day, it can be difficult to maintain the color for a long period of time. Moreover, you need to be extra careful about protecting your white furniture from stains, dust, dirt, food spills, yellowing and weather conditions like rain, etc.

5. keep the material in mind

The color of your outdoor furniture will also depend on the material it is made of. While aluminum, plastic, concrete and teak materials are ideal for outdoor furniture year-round and come with many color options, materials like iron, steel and wicker can be damaged by wet and cold weather conditions. Also, materials like concrete and wood look best in their natural earthy colors. Concrete greys and wood browns don’t fade easily and doesn’t show dirt as easily as lighter colors.
