Log Cabin Exterior Color Schemes That Wow

To begin, we’ll take a closer look at some of the log home exterior color schemes that will enhance the natural grain and coloration of commonly used wood for log homes. These log cabin exterior colors are not only aimed at improving the look of your home but also to help protect the wood, such as our Capture Log Home Stain that is available in the colors and combinations that follow.

  • Bronze Pine: The subtle Bronze Pine color is a classic among log cabin exterior color schemes. It doesn’t overwhelm the natural grain and imbues the wood finish with a bronze warmth.
  • Chestnut: For a darker wood finish, the Chestnut variant helps to create an earthy tone. The wood grain appears darker and deeper, creating a dusky wood grain appeal.
  • Hazelnut: Hazelnut is a log cabin color scheme that falls between the Bronze Pine and Chestnut. It is one of the most natural wood colors offering you a more neutral exterior look.
  • Natural: The Natural coating is one of the best ways to exemplify the innate beauty of wood. It can serve to bring new life to old or faded wood to bring it back to its former glow while helping to protect it for years to come.
  • Red Cedar: Another one of our favorite log home exterior color schemes is our Red Cedar finish. Reminiscent of a warm sunset, the Red Cedar coating is a step above the Bronze Pine in terms of natural color, enhancing the richness of certain types of wood.
  • Wheat: For a natural, lighter tone, the Wheat option can be ideal. It helps to enhance the natural grain of the wood while providing a neutral color scheme.
