Are you a builder or renovating and looking for decking ideas for your next outdoor project? In search of a few tips to help your outdoor space look its very best? You came to the right place.
Here at DeckSeal, we like to think we know a thing or two about decks, and we love providing a bit of insight and inspiration to our customers. Take a look at six decking ideas for builders and renovators and make the most out of your decking area.
Of course, when you’re building a deck, you’re mainly focusing on wood. However, expanding your horizons when it comes to materials can unlock a world of other benefits. A classic but warm element like stone can elevate your decking to the next level.
Lighting is essential for your decking space, but this does not make it just a functional item. Rustic and vintage lighting pieces add a signature centrepiece to your space, as well as give you the light you need.
Using all the space
When you build decking, you are often left with some space beneath the decking itself. It’s a shame to let that go to waste. This area makes for great storage, helping you to get the best from your garden.
You want to use the best materials to craft your decking, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a bit of fun with these materials in the process. DeckSeal offers a wide range of oils, stains, and treatments that not only protect your wood but also help your builders and renovators to achieve a cool-looking vintage style without having to use outdated materials of spurious origin.
Doing something different with railings
Railings are vital safety features, especially if your decking is raised or if you have water nearby. However, again, this doesn’t mean railings need to be boring. Play around with brass and chrome elements to create a safe, functional, great-looking barrier for your decking area.
Ask your builder or renovator about outdoor electrics. Modern technology and building practices mean that electric items can be used and installed outside, safely and easily. How does watching the game out on the deck with friends and family sound? Footy, rugby, cricket, whatever you like? We’re sure it sounds pretty good.
