This discussion has been very useful. Thanks for your input everyone. We were tossing up before between a pale grey and white, but we didn't realise grey would be significantly hotter to walk on.
We live with a painted white aluminium deck at the moment and cleaning
is not an issue. A quick wipe over with an old towel on dewy mornings by the chief deckhand
and bottle washer (also known as SWL
) leave it spotless.
Also, Med summers are hot, hot, hot and walking barefoot on the deck has not been an issue.
White wins hands down given grey is hotter
