Re: Deck colour

I tried a light grey but it did not go well with varnished teak hatches, hand rails and toe rails. I ended up with Bristol Beige which gave a more classic look.

Yes. I think you have hit the nail on the head with this colour. Would look really modern aswell.
We just painted our cream deck Light Grey. Looked way to dark so we bought another full can of white to mix with it. Wound up with a light grey?? light blueish colour. We are still getting used to it and sometimes think that the original grey would have looked better.
Off white would have worked well I think. Next time.
