    Would like some of the experts opinions on colour selection and any experience with Apollo XL hybrid. (Paging @Westminster please!)
    We’ve narrowed it down to Aged Fumed Oak (grey & some brown/natural tones) v Boston (grey tones).
    Some comparisons pics for assistance,
    Any thoughts/assistance greatly appreciated,
    Thankyou

    I think the Aged Fumed Oak works better with the brickwork.

    Ding! I agree with @wylie judging on those photos that aged fumed oak is better as it has some warmth that goes with your brickwork

    HOWEVER what colour is the floor inside the house that this will be right next to? That might change my answer. If you could take a photo of the flooring in front of the sliding door with the 2 planks that would be great.

    Thanks all,

    This is the only door where the internal flooring would be close to Alfresco. Others are higher windows so not the same concern of a clash. Want to keep the Alfresco light flowing through to ensure it doesn’t make the house dark.

    Internal flooring looks darker due to photo from outside to inside, but get the idea. There was too much reflection / glare trying to photo the other way for a good pic.

    Agree with the thoughts so far & we are leaning towards the Aged Fumed Oak.

    Appreciate the thoughts so far. Cheers

    With the inside flooring, I'd definitely avoid the grey and go with the one on the right.

    Yup that photo confirmed the warmer fumed oak for me
