Choosing the right colour for your new TimberTech composite deck may seem challenging at first thought, due to the sheer size of the decision with the number of options available to you. Here at TimberTechUK for example, we have a total of 6 colour types, each consisting of different shades, tones and tints, resulting in a total of 16 different boards! So, it's completely understandable if you're standing there scratching your head trying to decide between teak decking and walnut decking, or Storm Grey and Maritime Grey! But you shouldn't let the selection intimidate you, there are a number of tips that help make choosing the right coloured deck a breeze; let's take a look.

 

Start with the basic colour groups 

Despite not knowing exactly which colour you'd like your new deck to be, chances are that you'll have a tendency to lean towards certain colour groups, so that is always the best place to start. You may, for example, love a natural wood look so are more tempted to go with a wood-like colour such as brown, or you may have a coastal home and want your deck to complement this with grey boards. Either way, grouping all of your options into clear segments such as 'Greys', 'Browns', 'Silver' or 'Whites' and picking which colour group you like best is guaranteed to make your decision process a whole lot smoother. 

 

Think about the colour of your home

Leading nicely from our previous point, your home is the biggest feature of your outdoor living space, so you'll want your deck to complement it! By choosing a complementary colour and tone, you will ensure that your deck has enough character of its own to stand out and be set apart from your home, whilst not making too much noise. Here are some of our recommendations: 

  • Home is yellow, beige, brown or tan - Any brown or grey decking will work
  • Home is red, grey or blue - Decking of similar colour or grey will work
  • Home is white - Any colour deck will work here

Never underestimate undertones 

All decking colours have either warm or cool undertones, something which you may have learnt in school, whether you were successful or unsuccessful in doing so is another matter altogether. Anyway, according to the colour wheel, undertones of yellow, orange or red result in warmer colours and undertones of blue, green or violet result in cooler ones. Grey is considered to be a neutral colour, with undertones decidedly being both warm and cool (cool huh?). To ensure your decking and house colour are in harmony, we advise that you stick to either warm or cool undertones for both!

 

Consider sun exposure 

Another consideration to take into account is the amount of sun that your outdoor space is exposed to. This may seem like an odd thing to think about when it comes to choosing the colour of your deck, but it actually has a significant impact. Think about it like this. Any material that sits in the all-day sun will get warm. When you wear a black shirt, for example, you're likely to feel much hotter whilst sat in the sun than if you were wearing a white shirt. The same principle applies to your deck, regardless of manufacturer. If your deck is in an area that is exposed to the sun all day, every day, you may be better off opting for a lighter colour deck such as our EasyClean Legacy Vintage White. On the other hand, if you have a limited amount of sun exposure on your deck, a darker colour will be less of a concern.

 

Be unique 

If it's a bigger visual impact that you're trying to achieve, one thing you can think about doing is utilising more than one coloured board! For example, you can use one colour for your interior deck boards and a contrasting colour shade around the edges. This is a popular technique known as 'picture-framing' and is a fantastic way to add another dimension to your outdoor space that is guaranteed to catch the eye. Take a look at our installation video below to learn how to create this look!

Happy New Year! We’ve just entered 2019 and if it’s your job to redesign the garden this year, it’s our job to get you up to speed on the latest decking trends so that you can create a garden that’s both stylish and contemporary. We’ve scoured the internet to bring you an insight into the most fashionable deck designs and accessories that will gain popularity in 2019.

 

Picture Framing

Choosing to apply a different coloured trim around the perimeter of your decking, also known as picture framing, is by no means a new practice but it is set to rise in popularity in 2019. Homeowners who want to incorporate a deck into their garden that’s both practical and fashionable will love this trend! Visit one of our TimberTech showrooms if you’d like to have a look at the different coloured deck boards available. Our sales team are sure to offer you advice on which deck boards are most complimentary together if you’d like to achieve this look.

 

Split Decks

Splitting your deck over multiple levels is sure to be a hit this year. Homeowners want to add decks to their unusually shaped or sloped gardens, and split deck designs, such as the one you see here allow you to do that. You can create a deck that covers multiple levels by incorporating steps and a balustrade or handrail for safety. Why not take a look at our 3D deck designs on Pinterest to see a selection of different split deck designs?

 

Glass Balustrades

Whether your home overlooks an area of natural beauty or a busy city, if you want to be able to look out from your deck and enjoy the view then glass balustrades are a perfect option. In 2019, we predict that the desire for minimalist, modern and practical garden accessories will be on the rise – meaning glass balustrades will be a popular choice.  At TimberTech we offer glass balustrades with or without handrails and also frameless glass balustrades for creating a truly seamless look. View the entire glass balustrade range here.

We look forward to hearing from you if you plan to give your garden a new lease of life in 2019. If you have any questions about the products or designs you see here, please get in touch with our sales team on 029 2080 3756.

Do you have an outdoor area that could be enhanced using TimberTech’s Deck Lights? We bet you do! To help you feel inspired we have put together some decking light ideas that we think would look beautiful in lots of different gardens.

Mood lighting

If you’ve had a chance to take a look at our range of deck lights you might already know that they are available in five different colours making them perfect for creating different atmospheres in your garden.

Amber – Amber would be an excellent choice if you want to achieve a romantic, soft, atmosphere on your decking or surrounding areas. They would also be a great choice if you are worried about upsetting neighbours with bright lights on your property.

Green – would beautifully compliment a garden filled with greenery – the green light is less harsh than white lights, for example, and would accentuate the lush natural tones in your garden.

Red – While red might seem a little unorthodox, we think that red lights would be a great choice for stairs, steps or any other hazardous outdoor places. Installing these deck lights could help prevent falls or accidents.

White – White lights are a very popular choice of decking light; white lights are timeless and appropriate for all occasions. These lights would be excellent if you have especially dark areas of decking area or garden that you would like to use at night time.

Blue – Blue lights look stunning when they’re installed around any outdoor area, but they look especially appropriate around bodies of water such as a pool or pond.

Multicolour – Of course, if you’re feeling brave, why not have a variety of our different coloured deck lights installed to create a unique look in your garden? Perfect if you like to host parties or if you’re a little indecisive about which colour would suit your garden best!

All of our deck lights are available in two finishes – clear lenses for directional light or frosted lenses for a more diffused effect. Both equally beautiful!

The Specifics

Our lights are all IP67 rated, meaning they can be fully submerged in water – so no need to worry about them getting damaged when it rains.

We’ve also eliminated the need to go outside to switch on your deck lights, they can all be operated remotely using an on/off key fob.

Each light is made with 319 marine grade stainless steel so it should last you a lifetime – and just in case you have any problems with your deck lights, all of them come with a 2-year warranty!

So, what’s stopping you?

We want your garden and your decking to reach its full potential. Find out more about TimberTech’s decking lights today! Click here, or call us on 029 2080 3756.

So, you’ve finally decided to go ahead and purchase composite decking from one of our stunning decking ranges, congratulations on a very wise investment! However, the decision making doesn’t end there. A host of questions still remain now that you have chosen the flooring option for your outdoor living space. To make things easier for you, we’re going to run through a few things that you may want to consider when building your deck.

Location

The location in your outdoor space where your deck is going to be built may already be determined before making your purchase, however, after deciding to choose our composite decking you may think that your new deck may be better suited within a different position. This could be due to our decking complimenting a certain feature or area in your garden, taking advantage of a specific view or to be more or less exposed to the weather and elements. All of these things may impact the location in where your deck may be built.

Installation

The way in which your new deck is going to be installed is another thing you may need to think about. If you have adequate DIY skills, you may decide that you can save time and money by installation your deck boards yourself. If you don’t possess the skills, however, you may decide to utilise our installation fitting service with our team of professional and friendly deck installers, allowing you to sit back and relax while your dream outdoor living space comes to life.

Design, Size & Shape

The design, size and shape of your new deck will be dependent on the location that you decide to build it. Once a decision has been made on where your deck will be built, you can then proceed with choosing the design. This is something that we can also provide assistance with our deck design inspiration and FREE 3D deck design service. Here you are able to view an array of deck designs, including a range of layouts and patterns and then watch see your design come to life by collaborating with our expert team of CAD designers.

Extras: Balustrades, Lighting & Steps

Basic platform decks are by far the simplest to build and offer a classic, clean appearance. If it’s an eye-catching deck that you’re after however, this is something that you may want to avoid. As a result, a multi-level deck may be the deck for you. If this is the case and your deck now sits higher than a few feet off the ground, a balustrade system and steps may be something worth considering. We offer a variety of balustrade, railing systems and steps that not only provide an extra element of safety but also add a stylish touch to your deck. If you plan on utilising your new outdoor space at all times throughout the day and night, installing deck lights may also be an added benefit, allowing and anyone else to see your beautiful new deck no matter the time.

These aren’t all the things that you need to consider when building your deck, but will definitely go a long way in helping you achieve your dream outdoor living space. If you require any further information or assistance with any of the mentioned points or services, then please do not hesitate to contact us today.
