An incredible outdoor living space is about more than just the right decking materials. A backyard escape should also tell a story through design — and invite you to become lost in the narrative. To get your creative juices flowing, we’ve put together a few fresh deck design ideas. Get inspired and learn how to transform your outdoor living space from ordinary to oasis.
Looking for deck design inspiration? Here are some of our favorite ideas from TimberTech to help spark your imagination:
1) Tri-Color Decking
What Defines This Look? You guessed it: three different deck board colors. More meaningfully, tri-color decking uses light, medium, and darker-hued boards for a seriously creative outdoor living. This look is inspired by post-1920s modernism yet feels wholly of-the-moment in 2020. It often echoes the natural, earthy hues of the surrounding landscape.
2) Part of the Landscape
Want to create an outdoor living space that blends seamlessly with the surrounding scenery? First, make sure your deck is installed facing your best views or water features. Next, choose earthy colors like browns, beiges and stone grays for your deck boards. Finish off the effect with planters and cozy seating to evoke a garden-like atmosphere.
3) Multi-Width Decking
Wide-width deck boards offer a number of benefits, including fewer fasteners needed to complete the project — which can mean less time, labor, and overall cost. Plus, wide-width deck boards create an expansive feel throughout your deck, drawing the eye outward and capturing the feel of a sprawling outdoor escape.
4) Wide Railing for Cocktails
Part of the Classic Composite Series, Drink Rail features a deck board as the top rail to tie your deck and railing together seamlessly. Plus, it’s the perfect place to rest your morning coffee or late-night cocktail. The Drink Rail is designed for the homeowner who wants an impactful railing design that complements the deck as well as the home’s exterior.
