Here at TimberTech, nothing pleases us more than seeing our products involved in stunning transformations and recently, this has been the case yet again. This customer chose our EasyClean Tropical Storm Grey Composite Decking as their choice of decking to turn their garden from an out-dated and typical looking space into a much more classy and sophisticated outdoor area. As you can see, with our composite decking now fully installed, it brings a much more open and clean finish to what was once and closed off and tired looking deck. With the assistance of our on-site deck installers, you are able to sit back and watch your decking vision come to life, an additional service which we provide in order for you to relax and leave all the hard work to our professional installation team. 

                                                

What makes our EasyClean Tropical Storm Grey Composite Decking such a fantastic choice is not just down to its excellent durability and low maintenance, but the contemporary and trendy up-beat feel it brings. Grey is a popular choice for most home-owners nowadays and we think that this customer has made a great choice in deciding to go with our Storm Grey Decking to modernise their outdoor space with a tropical wood feel.

                                               

These decking boards are fully equipped with a fully protective wrap-around polymer sleeve, enabling protection from moisture and spills to be easily wiped away. If you would like to see more of our Storm Grey Decking and view further specifications, please visit our Storm Grey product page here, where samples are available to order.

If you're thinking of adding a raised deck to your garden, here are a few ways that you can cleverly incorporate a creative and functional design into your outdoor space:

Add a Sunken Hot Tub

Hot tubs should not be placed on top of our deck without the correct concrete foundations, so a sunken design is the perfect way to ensure safety and easy access to your tub.



Make a Platform for your Garden Dining Area

Raised decking doesn't have to be substantially higher than the rest of your garden to create a striking visual impact , as you can see from this low-rise platform below.



Add Rounded Edges for a Sleek, Modern Finish

Raised decking doesn't have to be squared off, in fact, our product is so versatile that you can create stunning smooth, curved edges.



Create a Stylish Step Design 

For sloped gardens, why not improve your access to lower areas by adding steps to your raised deck area? A glass balustrade will also give you an unrestricted view over the rest of your space.

When approaching a garden deck project, many people are unaware of the variety of options available to them, due to the fact that they are so accustomed to the widely-used image of a standard garden deck. At TimberTech, we like to remind our customers that there are a range of possibilities open to them, by demonstrating the versatility of our products as they have been used in a variety of designs. Here are just a few examples of how our decking has been used in the past:

Just as there's more than one way to skin a cat, so too are there many different ways in which to lay a deck! It isn't merely a question of whether you're going to place the boards horizontally or vertically; as you're about to see, it's possible to create all kinds of interesting patterns by getting a little bit imaginative with your decking.

Decking design ideas

You'll find some of our favourite deck patterns over on our Decking Design Ideas page - here are a few examples to get the cogs whirring:

  • Herringbone patterns (see central image above) are commonly used when laying floorboards indoors; why not emulate those zig-zags with your deck?

  • An arresting patchwork effect can be created by laying some boards horizontally and others vertically:

  • If you fancy combining two different deck colours - or if you're simply unable to choose just one favourite - you may wish to attempt a picture frame look, using one type of deck board as the border for another. The results should look something like this:

These are just a few ideas - the possibilities really are endless! If you've got a good idea for a decking design, get in touch with TimberTech for a project quotation and any further advice you might need.

Try something a little more contemporary today!

When you picture a deck, you probably picture something like this:

Cedar decking

Pictured: Reliaboard Cedar

This is what we at TimberTech refer to as a 'traditional' deck: the sort of deck that people have been adding to their homes for decades, with rich brown boards and a natural wood grain. It's a picturesque look, for sure, but it's also a very conventional one, and if you want something slightly more unusual for your outdoor space then you may be more interested in one of our more modern decking ranges.

Here are three examples of what we have to offer would-be deck owners with contemporary-leaning tastes:

Silver maple decking

EasyClean Terrain+ Silver Maple

As their name suggests, our Silver Maple deck boards have a silvery look that's flecked with hints of a darker grey for added visual appeal. These were the boards we supplied for ITV's Love Your Garden series; the brief for the episode in question was to create a futuristic garden design for a family of five, so our Silver Maple decking already has a great reputation as a thoroughly modern choice!

Grey decking

Reliaboard Grey

These deck boards represent a stunning collision of modern and traditional styles: they have an organic-looking wood grain, but the striking grey colour puts them among the most contemporary decking choices on the market!

VertiGrain Grey Decking

VertiGrain Grey

Last but not least, here's another gorgeous grey decking product - the grained surface is very appealing, and since VertiGrain decking is compatible with our CONCEALoc® fixing system, there'll be no visible fixings to spoil the look of the boards. In fact, all of the products mentioned above are compatible with the CONCEALoc® system, so you'll never have to worry about those unsightly joints and screws!

We have a huge range of contemporary composite decking options to choose from here at TimberTech UK - contact us to discuss your project today!
