Choosing your Summerhouse colour

Dark colours will make your summerhouse recede into the background and a lighter colour will make your summerhouse stand out.

Green-painted summerhouses in an olive or sage colour blend in perfectly with foliage whilst a black or dark grey painted summerhouse will make any planting in front appear more vibrant and vivid.

White of light-painted summerhouses stand out and make a strong feature or focal point to draw the eye.

Summerhouses normally have plenty of glass so internally it works well to maintain the same colour internally as externally.

Choosing your summerhouse roof colour

Summerhouses roofs come in different shapes and sizes and can be finished with a variety of roofing materials. The most popular summerhouse roof covering is felt shingle which is available in five colours. Black shingle resembles slate and works with any colour of painted summerhouse. Brown shingles work well with white and cream-painted summerhouses. Blue shingles are great for a seaside colour theme. Red shingles are a strong colour that works well with browns and wood stain finishes and finally, Green shingles work well with woodland backgrounds.

Alternative options are Cedar shingles which give an extra touch of luxury and tradition to any colour of painted summerhouse.

Artificial slate roofs are dark grey to black in colour and work well on pyramid or hipped roof shapes.
