Is 'Greige' a good colour choice for my garden?

When it comes to garden design, choosing the right colour palette is essential. At Ovaeda, we often get asked what colours are most popular and what colour options should people consider when designing their garden.  Greige colours are very on-trend at the moment, and might be worth considering for your garden project.

Greige is a great option for those looking to create an elegant and modern aesthetic in their outdoor space. But what exactly is greige, and how can it be used in garden design?


What is Greige?

The term ‘greige’ is derived from the combination of two colours: grey and beige. It’s a warm neutral hue that has become increasingly popular in interior design over recent years, and now it’s making its way into gardens too. Greige has the ability to create a sophisticated yet calming atmosphere, making it perfect for outdoor spaces.


Introducing Greige into Garden Design

Greige can be introduced into garden design in many different ways.  Two of the best ways to introduce greige colours into your garden design is by using greige colour composite decking and greige colour porcelain paving. Composite decking offers a low-maintenance alternative to traditional wood decking, while porcelain paving provides an attractive and durable surface for pathways or patios. Both materials come in a range of light and dark shades of greige, allowing you to create stunning visual effects with your garden design.

There are lots of other ways to introduce greige colours into your garden design, why not think about some of the following:



Benefits of Greige Composite Decking & Porcelain Paving

Greige composite decking and porcelain paving offer several benefits when used in garden design. Composite decking requires minimal maintenance; simply sweep away any dirt or debris every few weeks, and use mild soap if necessary. Porcelain paving also requires little upkeep; simply hose down occasionally with water to keep it looking fresh. Both materials are also resistant to fading from UV rays, meaning they will retain their beautiful colour even after years of exposure to sunlight.

A great option to consider for greige composite decking is the Luxxe Natural Grey composite decking board – why not order your free sample pack to get a feel for this stunning product?

If you prefer paving to decking, then greige coloured porcelain paving options might be just the product for your.  Here’s some great options to consider if you are looking for greige paving slabs:

Mixing Light & Dark Shades of Greige

A mixture of light and dark shades of greige can help create an eye-catching effect in your garden design. For example, you could opt for lighter shades on your patio or pathway, with darker shades used on your composite decking or fencing panels - this will help define different areas within your outdoor space while still maintaining an overall cohesive look. Alternatively, you could use both light and dark shades throughout your entire garden design - this will add depth and texture while still keeping things simple and elegant.


Why Choose Greige?

In conclusion, greige is an excellent choice for those looking to create an elegant yet modern aesthetic in their outdoor space. The combination of grey and beige creates a sophisticated yet calming atmosphere that is perfect for gardens; plus, composite decking and porcelain paving come in a range of light and dark shades so you can mix-and-match colours to create stunning visual effects without compromising on quality or durability. So if you’re looking for a timeless colour palette that won’t go out of style anytime soon, then greige might just be the perfect choice for you!
