Grey Composite Decking Ideas & Designs

From light grey to darker shades of charcoal and everything in between, grey is one of the most popular color choices when selecting composite decking colors for your home. Composite decking can often closely mimic the grooved, grainy texture of natural wood, minus the drawbacks -- such as the time and work involved in maintaining real wood decking.

Grey composite decking is highly versatile. It can help create a crisp, modern look to your decking, or give it the gently-weathered appearance of beachy driftwood. Brands like Trex® Composite Decking have options ranging from light grey composite decking shades like Pebble Grey and Island Mist to darker greys like inky Winchester Grey. No matter what you’re looking for, there is an endless array of tones to consider when building a deck of your own.

Choosing the right shade of grey composite decking is a matter of personal choice. However, there is a wealth of inspiration that can help you bring to life a deck that you’ll enjoy for years to come.

Sophisticated Grey and White Dining Area

Soft grey composite decking installed on-the-diagonal beneath a bright, white pergola creates an inviting dining space. Black tables and chairs edged in white make for a sophisticated look with ample seating for guests.

 

Monochromatic Grey Decking with Pops of Color

For a pulled-together monochromatic look, light grey composite decking can be matched to the exact same hue as the railings. In this instance, the decking and railings are also a close match to the grey siding and shingles on the house. Turquoise blue throw pillows, bright yellow flowers, and place settings add welcome pops of color.

 

Embedded Lighting and Contrasting Colors

This multi-tiered deck uses white as an accent color to highlight the stairs leading up to this platform deck. Embedded in the deck itself are clever LED lights to illuminate the pathway at night. The stairway lights complement the recessed lighting in the ceiling of this covered deck.

 

Simple Design to Frame a Great View

When you have a great view, you want decking that complements it instead of competing with it. Pebble grey composite decking in a simple,  pattern works with darker columns and trim on glass railings. These design elements work together to frame a lush landscape, giving you the perfect place to enjoy your deck and the surrounding countryside.

 

Comfy and Classic

Don’t let the cool tones of grey decking fool you. It can provide a quaint and cozy outdoor atmosphere. Light grey decking makes for a smart contrast against the warm-toned brick facade of this home. Darker grey columns help tie the look together.

 

Mixing Grey with Tan Tones on Your Deck

Grey decking with a slightly weathered appearance can make it the perfect palette to mix tasteful shades of cool-toned tan in your decor. This grey composite decking pulls out some of the cooler tones in this rattan chair and matching wicker pottery. The grey-and-white striped cushion picks up the shade of grey found in the composite decking for a cohesive look. Glass railings trimmed in dark metal give this deck a modern, mixed-media vibe.

 

Grey Decking Works with Cooler Brown Tones

Once again, grey composite decking proves its versatility. Here, grey with soft brown undertones creates a rustic-meets-modern feel on this enclosed outdoor space. A stone fireplace in cool shades of brown works beautifully with the grey decking that has lighter brown undertones to make this a harmonious marriage of two distinct color families. Even if you use contrasting neutrals like grey and brown together, they can complement one another if you choose shades with cooler undertones.

 

Grey Decking Can Let Your Natural Surroundings Shine

Cream railings and framings surround this screened porch to offer a luxurious contrast to pale grey decking. Dark Adirondack chairs with colorful accent pillows provide a simple, yet stunning contrast. Tasteful features -- such as brass sconces and a large plant in a cream-toned pot -- compliment the natural foliage and gracefully drooping Spanish moss.

 

Create a Spacious Outdoor Living & Dining Area

Light grey composite decking can create an open, airy feel -- like the example shown here on this elevated deck. Dark grey metal rod railings form a contrasting border that matches the charcoal-hued patio furniture. Bright white cushions add a breezy vibe, as do colorful plants. For a put-together touch, use the same shade of grey composite decking to make rectangular planters and flower boxes, perking up the space with bright blooms.

 

Grey Decking for an At-the-Shore Feel

Misty grey decking can create the feeling of being in a quaint, coastal town when used to create an open-concept deck. Using a home’s natural features -- like built-in pillars -- to create boundaries, you can set up different areas for dining lounging, or reclining in wooden rocking chairs.

 

Maximize Your Deck Space with Sunken Built-In Seating

Multi-tiered decks can help you make the most of your deck space by incorporating fun features, such as sunken built-in seating. Turn steep steps into additional seating by adding some colorful, comfy throw pillows. A fire pit makes this “the” place to be to enjoy some campfire conversation on your deck.

 

Indoor-Outdoor Decking: Cabana Style!

Grey composite decking with a slightly weathered look gives the appearance of upcycled driftwood minus the maintenance in this poolside indoor-outdoor deck. Glass railings give an unparalleled view of a crystal clear pool, sectioning off a dining area on this cheery cabana-style deck.

 

Small Space, Big Style

This small, gently raised deck gives the illusion of a bigger space thanks to light grey decking laid in an unfussy parallel style, surrounded by clear glass railings. Bold, charcoal grey statement chairs and a matching wicker table create a comfy seating area while large floor lanterns and foliage add some color, character, and light to the space.

 

Light It Up!

Two-tone grey decking mixes lighter and darker shades of grey for a simple, albeit striking platform-style deck. Using varying shades of cool-toned grey creates a cohesive feel where all style elements work together. The medium grey pergola roof and bright white pillars pick up the lighter and darker hues of the grey composite decking itself. Stringing fairy lights from the top of the pergola, as well as embedded LED lighting in the raised step of the decking, creates an ethereal atmosphere on this outdoor oasis.

 

“Greige” Composite Decking

Showcasing the versatility of grey decking, this neutral-toned grey is neither quite grey nor quite beige. Rather, it provides an ambiguous hue -- sometimes referred to as “greige” -- that plays well with the charcoal grey furnishings and creamy tan tones of the fireplace bricks. Lots of lighting offers a relaxed-yet-upscale feel to this indoor-outdoor deck space.
