How to Make Your Composite Deck More Inviting
There are great ways of adding elegance and style to your garden. One of them is by installing composite decking. If you have just built a brand new composite deck and want to make it look inviting, this article will give you all the helpful tips you need.
Decking is a fantastic method of making the most out of your outdoor space or yard. Many homeowners prefer to use composite decking for building a very hospitable and inviting seating area because of its aesthetic appeal. Nevertheless, there are other ways you can add value to your composite decking area and your property. With the proper design and addition, your decking can enhance the atmosphere and extend your home’s living area.
Also, a decking area can help improve your home’s resale value. Families who install decking on their property tend to enjoy more outdoor time. With decking features like lighting, outdoor furniture and flowers, you can boost your home’s curb appeal.
You can decorate your decking to align with your needs or specific purpose. Decking can be used to zone out areas in a garden, creating a multi-functional outdoor space. It can also create an indoor-outdoor flow, allowing you to extend your home’s living area.
Below are great ways to enhance your composite decking:
You can create an atmosphere of cosiness and enhanced functionality in your outdoor space with furniture. A basic composite decking can be upgraded into an elegant dining suite with outdoor furniture like a table and soft, cosy cushions. You can also decorate your decking with a wicker table and a rustic, comfy recliner to create a comfortable outdoor area during the summer. With the right decking furniture, you can add beauty and an inviting appearance to your garden or balcony.
Here are some tips that will help you to decorate your decking with outdoor furniture:
- Ensure your outdoor furniture is weather-proof and capable of repelling water. Other desirable or high-quality features of decking furniture include UV protection, removable cushions, fade-resistant and heavy-duty thread or stitches etc.
- Make sure your outdoor furniture matches or blends with the rest of your home’s exterior. They shouldn’t clash or contrast.
- It may be very uncomfortable to stay outside during the scorching heat, especially if you don’t have a shade. For homeowners without a shady tree, a gazebo can provide a naturally cooling shelter for your furniture.
As many families look forward to spending more time on their decking during the summer, they may find it difficult to create that stylish and functional outdoor area. Another way of adding beauty and style to your outdoor space is through an outdoor rug. Rugs are known for their ability to add distinctiveness, style, and character to even the tiniest of spaces.
An outdoor rug can blend with any outdoor aesthetics or design. It differs from a welcome mat as it is extremely versatile and sleek.
Potted plants and flowers are another way of transforming your home’s exterior into a beautiful green sanctuary. It does not matter the size of your decking; with the right plants, you can add vitality and flavour to your deck. This will allow you to further enjoy the tranquillity and peace of your outdoor space.
Once you have your outdoor rug, furniture and gazebo, you will need flowers to add a natural touch to whatever design you intend to implement on your decking. Don’t be discouraged if you lack soil; you can use a flower pot to create a low-maintenance garden on your decking.
Some plants you can use for your garden include Coleus, Euphorbia, Nemesia, Hydrangea and Ornamental Pepper.
