The Most Common Louvre Roof Colours

The most common colours are usually chosen to match existing joinery, either frame and blades both to match either dark or light existing joinery, or a dark frame to match joinery, and light blades to create a feeling of continuity from indoor to outdoor.

When it comes to designing your outdoor space, choosing the right colour scheme for your louvres and pergolas can make a significant impact on the overall aesthetics and ambience.

Louvres can be powder coated in any colour to match or suit the space. Our standard quotes are based on powder coating in any colour from the Dulux Duralloy range, which has a 10-year warranty. There is also the ability to upgrade powder coating to the Duratech range of colours, at additional cost.
Note: Duratech colours are sometimes recommended depending on location (sea spray etc.).
Now, on to some tips!
Here are some tips on how to select the perfect colour scheme, including insights into the latest colour trends for 2023.

1. Consider the Surrounding Environment

Before selecting a colour scheme, observe your outdoor surroundings. Look at the colours of the plants, flowers, and structures nearby to create a harmonious palette. What do you want to stand out in your backyard and what do you want to fade into the background to help those brighter tones take the limelight?

2. Determine the Mood for your Outdoor Living Space

Think about the mood or atmosphere you want. Different colours evoke different emotions:

  • Cool colours like blues and greens create a calming and relaxing atmosphere.
  • Warm colours like reds and oranges create a lively and energetic ambience.
  • Neutral colours like whites and greys provide a clean and sophisticated look.

3. Consider the Functionality of your Louvre System

Consider how you will use your outdoor space and choose colours accordingly. Bold and eye-catching colours work for parties, while softer and more neutral colours create intimacy.

4. Explore the Trending Colour Tones

Another popular colour trend for louvres and pergolas in 2023 is the use of bold and vibrant colours. Bright hues such as teal, coral, and yellow add a pop of colour and create a fun and energetic atmosphere. These bold colours are perfect for those who want to make a statement.

In addition to neutral and bold colours, earthy tones are also popular in 2023. Shades of green, brown, and rust create a natural and organic feel to your outdoor space. These earthy tones help you create a calming and peaceful atmosphere, perfect for relaxation.
