With the end of 2020 in sight (thank goodness!), 2021 is fast approaching and with it comes a whole host of new outdoor trends that homeowners and outdoor designers will be keen to implement into their planned outdoor redesigns.

Here at TimberTechUK, we love keeping on top of all things modern and trendy in the decking world and bringing them to you, our loyal customers. So, here we bring the decking trends that we think will take 2021 by storm! 

 

Staycations 

We doubt that the word 'staycation' was ever said prior to 2020 but as a result of COVID-19 stopping us from travelling abroad for our holidays, many of us have been forced to stay in the UK for our planned breaks. This has led to many people visiting and experiencing parts of Britain that they've never been to before, however, many people have also chosen to invest the money that would've gone onto a holiday away into improving their own homes and in particular, their gardens and decks.

This is a trend that we expect to fully continue going into 2021 with many households remaining reluctant to travel overseas and instead using the money to create an improved living space in their very own home.

 

Creative deck designs 

Creative outdoor designs were something that we predicted would pick up throughout 2020. This was definitely the case with some outstanding outdoor plans being brought to life and something we fully expect to continue moving into the new year with creativity becoming commonplace. A few of the creative deck design features that we expect to make a return throughout 2021 include:

  • Varying boards widths 
  • Single and double picture frames 
  • Multiple board colours 
  • Breaker boards 
  • Unique inlays 

 

Deck lighting 

A staple in the deck design world, lighting continues to become an essential element of any modern deck design. This is in no way, shape or form going to slow down as we enter 2021, with more decks being designed to incorporate lighting features.

As a result of more people and families potentially staying put throughout 2021, enabling your deck to become a place where you can spend even more time has never been more important. Adding deck lights allows you and your family to continue enjoying your outdoor space even when the sun has set. Their simple installation also means that you can become creative when choosing where to install them.

 

Covered decks 

The final 2021 decking trend that we think will gain more traction is covered decks! As people move away from seeing their garden as a separate space to being more integrated with their interior space, covered decks are becoming a more popular garden feature. 

With a plethora of cover options to choose from, including awnings, verandas and pergolas, there really is no excuse to not consider adding some deck cover next year. Not only does it provide essential shelter when the weather decides to act up, but it also brings an eye-catching element to your garden that most do not have. Also with suitable cover, you are able to bring your inside outside and create a proper outdoor space! Decorate your deck with accessories and items that match the design of the interior of your home to bring a true transition from outside to in!

 

And there you have it, TimberTechUK's 2021 decking trends! We're excited to see how next year plays out and all of the wonderful deck designs that are sure to emerge.

There's a common misconception that composite decking has a 'plastic' or 'fake' appearance. Back when composite decking first appeared on the market, this might have been true, but now we have manufacturing tools that allow us to create composite deck boards with all the character and charm of real wood. 

One of the many drawbacks of choosing the real thing is that it actually loses its beauty over time because it's easily weathered. (Take a look at the comparison image above if you don't believe us!)For that reason, you're actually better off choosing composite decking if you want to keep a real wood look for longer than a few years. Unlike real wood, composite decking doesn't need to be sanded, stained or sealed to keep it looking fresh.

For many homeowners, their deck is their own private, outdoor space that they use to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. For others, it's the perfect place where they can entertain guests for hours on a cool summer evening, but neither of these scenarios is possible with just a deck alone. Your deck's decor plays a monumental role in achieving the perfect outdoor space. 

Now I know what you're thinking, decorating your deck sounds expensive but thankfully it doesn't have to be. You are perfectly capable of creating your private sanctuary or party place without breaking the bank! There are plenty of deck decorating ideas that you can do on a budget; here we look at some of the ideas that you can try for yourself.

Who said you had to stick to one colour of decking boards? We certainly didn’t. In fact, one of our favourite things is when a customer comes to us with an idea on how to combine two of our composite decking colours for a mixed decking design. We’re in love with all the mixed decking designs we’ve done so why not explore the option yourself? It’s sure to add an extra flair to your outdoor space!
