This is a question that’s been subject to much debate online over the years. The simple answer is that it’s really up to you! Some people prefer a more fluid look to their garden space, and will therefore opt for matching fencing and decking, whereas others might be inclined towards a more mix and match approach. Rest assured though that whatever you end up deciding for your own space. here at North Valley Composites we’ve got a range of composite fencing panels for you to choose from that you can use to create your perfect garden design. So then, if you’re still finalising your decision on colours, let’s have a look at the two main competing arguments! Of course your fence panels should match your decking! Generally speaking, a lot of people prefer things to match up, whether that’s the clothes they wear, the way they design their homes, or the way in which they arrange their garden features. By using the same or complementary colours, you can tie together different design elements and create a harmonious and aesthetically pleasing look for your garden space. Additionally, matching the colours can help to create a sense of continuity and flow within your garden, which can enhance the overall visual appeal. For example, you can create a warm, natural feel within your garden by matching our Light Oak Composite fencing boards with similarly shaded decking. No way! Decking and fencing should never match People may choose different colours for their decking and fence panels for a variety of reasons. Usually, people who do this want to create visual contrast and add interest to their outdoor space. Different colours can also be used to highlight different features or areas of the space, such as a seating area or a water feature. Additionally, different colours can be used to complement the surrounding environment or architecture of the home. If you’re looking to create a contrast with your colour choices, why not opt for Black Ash composite fencing panels as a backdrop to a lusciously green garden design? The stark contrast of the charcoal boards will really make your greenery pop. Ultimately, the choice of colours for decking and fence panels is a matter of personal preference. The beauty of design is there are no objective answers, everything is relative to personal tastes, so if you think you’ll love a mix of colours, or you think you’ll be happy with matching decking and fence panels, the choice is yours!
