Color Coordinating Your Bench With Your Porch
A common question we get from our customers when buying a bench for their porch is which color or finish will best suit their location. This can often be a bit of an art as there are a bunch of helpful tools online created to assist you in selecting a color or color scheme. In this post, we will describe a couple to get you up and about in finding the right color of an outdoor bench for you.
Pictaculous is a free online tool that allows you to upload any images. One of its features is to identify the primary colors in the pic and will provide you a set of complementary color schemes that match the photo. Using this tool is a handy way to help you decide on what color would best suit for your porch. Just simply upload a photo of your porch and Pictaculous will suggest some colors you can use to decide in picking out your bench that will suit your location best.
Another tool that is similar in functionality is SnapYourColors. This website also lets you upload a photo of your porch and it offers a number of color palettes based on what it finds in your photo, be it complementary, same tones, same palette, etc. As this tool has somewhat with less functionality than Pictaculous, it proves to be equally useful in offering you some colors to work with.
If you are looking for a more robust suggestion in picking out a bench that will go well with the decor of your porch, you can also check out Pinterest for its millions of user-curated images. Just type in the color you think you best represent your space and the appropriate keywords to search its database to get your much-needed inspiration.
Finding the right color for your bench can sometimes be frustrating and it does not have to be. A good rule of thumb is to pick out neutral colors, like white, black, grey and all shades of brown as these colors will blend perfectly to any type of outdoor color scheme, even on your interior!
