How Can Colour Help Your Log Cabin


Adding a splash of colour to your Log Cabin is a fantastic way to make your garden more exciting and personal to you. Using the wood stains and colour treatments we provide can help bring your vision to life, these are offered as optional extras when purchasing a Log Cabin from Dunster House.

Prepping your Log Cabin is super easy, if it isn’t already treated with preservatives then you’ll need to treat the timber before adding your colour. This will also be dependent on the timber of the log cabin too.

Mask off any areas that you don’t want the colour to be on and ensure you have good quality paint brushes/ rollers, then you’re good to go!

Adding some style into your garden: 

Painting your Log Cabin will be adding an element of style into your garden, you’re really bringing it to life.

If you are unsure on where to go with colour options perhaps think about the below:

. Themes: Do you have a theme that you can tailor it towards? For example, some of the garden bars we often see have a specific theme, like a Tikki Hut, and have therefore been painting to fit this accordingly. You can get some inspiration from sites like Pinterest and Instagram for how you execute your ideas.

. Your favourite colour: Are you passionate for pink? Why not paint your Log Cabin in your favourite colour? Afterall it is a space for you and you’re guaranteed to like it.

. Tailor to the season: Get super stylish and tailor your Log Cabin to the current season. If it’s winter, perhaps a white log cabin and a frosted grey window trim would look fitting. For spring you could add a splash of blue or yellow. Don’t worry the Log Cabin can easily be repainted, so changing it up is never an issue!

As mentioned above sites like Pinterest or Instagram are fantastic places to search for inspiration and ideas. Our Instagram is filled with beautiful customer photos so be sure to check that out and follow!
