Composite decking has seen a surge of unwavering popularity over the last two decades, gracing many gardens across the UK and beyond – and with good reason.
Aesthetically stylish, reassuringly durable and consistently impressive, composite decking never fails to leave a lasting impression on homeowners and on-lookers alike.
That being said, the decking world isn’t immune to fashion trends; what’s in vogue in outdoor design can have a strong influence on the direction of industry as a whole.
To help you stay ahead of the curve in terms of keeping your garden up to date with contemporary design, we’ve outlined a few of the biggest things to expect from deck trends in 2020.
Decking Trends for 2020
With the momentum of composite decking showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon, anyone looking to invest in composite decking for their home won’t be left with buyer’s remorse.
However, if you’re looking to keep your decking area in vogue and looking as stylish as possible, there are a few fashionable decking trends 2020 has in store that you may want to keep in mind…
Contemporary colours have ruled the roost in the decking world over the last several years, with cool greys and dark stormy colours a common sight.
However, it appears that the cyclical nature of the outdoor design will see natural wood colours make a welcome comeback as what’s old becomes new once again.
Ranging from the classic appeal of dark teak and walnut decking to the lighter appeal of cedar and tigerwood shades, the organic appeal of authentic wood is simply timeless.
An influential factor in interior and exterior design alike, effective lighting has the ability to make a good deck great and a great deck simply outstanding.
For the ultimate in seamless uplighting, the illuminating qualities of our built-in deck lights provide fashion and function with its stylish radiance.
Blending practicality with performance, these lights sit within the boards themselves to provide a level finish that’s tidy, clean and clutter-free.
While a typical linear decking design will never fail to get the job done, 2020 looks set to see a rise in creativity when it comes to configuration and deck design.
Where standard striped decking may have been a foregone conclusion in the past, expect to see an increase in more artistic methods, such as diamond inserts and picture framing.
You could even mix and match with a multidirectional patchwork design or incorporate opposing directions with a dividing board in the centre. The possibilities are endless!
Glass balustrades have been hogging all the attention in the last couple of years due to their unique blend of style and transparency; however, they also require continued maintenance to stay clean.
Conversely, cable railings offer all the benefits of balustrades with minimal upkeep, making them a popular choice for those looking to create a stylish decking border that also includes uncompromised visual freedom.
For raised decking areas and decked out balconies, a protective border is a must-have purchase and they don’t come any better than the low-maintenance, high-visibility of cable railing.
Finally, a garden trend that looks set to carry through from 2019 is the unique all-in-one tactic of garden zoning.
Essentially creating a “best of both worlds” scenario, zoning is – as the name suggest – the process of splitting your garden into distinct sections or zones.
This not only allows you to designate specific areas to a particular purpose or activity, it also allows you to incorporate multiple materials should you wish to mix-up your flooring design.
