One of the joys of owning log cabins is being able to paint and decorate them to suit your desired aesthetic.
This includes painting the external parts of the structure, so choosing an appropriate colour scheme is important, and must be selected with care.
Opting for tones that are in keeping with the local surroundings and landscape is crucial, so be sure to assess other nearby structures when selecting your colour palette. Are there any historical buildings close by, or will the location of your outdoor huts and gazebos be in a rural or urban setting? The answers to these may influence your choices, given that more earthy shades could complement your log cabin when placed in a natural setting.
Smaller log cabins often benefit from being painted in lighter, brighter hues. These will give the impression that the buildings are larger than they appear. Alternatively, darker colours can render bigger log cabins less imposing, preventing them from appearing too domineering in the landscape.
Choosing a roof colour will depend on the original shade of the tiles or planks of wood. Log cabins often have brown or black canopies, so the colours of sidings should complement these. Warmer tones for brown roofs work well, and cooler shades for darker or black shingles are recommended. Patch testing is advisable before committing to a colour.
