Latest News
Ideas and updates from the TimberTech blog

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!

What is Mixed Decking?

Mixed decking is simply combining decking in two different colours to create a specific design. This can range from trimming the edges in a different wood colour or more intricate ideas such as diamonds, dramatic stripes or whatever you can think of! Our team of decking experts are here to bring to your decking vision to life so why not have fun and experiment?

Can I Mix Any Decking?

In theory, you can mix whatever colours you’d like to create your mixed decking design. Most of our ranges come in at least two colours so it’s easy to find a colour combination you’ll love. This mix and match approach can provide striking designs in every garden. You’ll love the unique and modern aesthetic TimberTech composite decking can bring to your outdoor space. 

What Design Should I Use?

Your design choice is yours to make. Common designs include using a different colour of composite decking around the outside in a style known as ‘picture-framing’. Other’s have “drawn” squares into their decking using a contrasting colour. Despite its dramatic effect, it’s a very versatile way of creating more visual interest in your garden. If you’re stuck for inspiration, have a look below at our gallery for mixed decking designs using our composite decking boards.

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.

It’ll soon be Christmas, so it’s time to start thinking about how your TimberTech decking can reach its full festive potential. We have put together a selection of decorative ideas that are sure to complement all of our TimberTech products.

Add a Christmas Wreath

A Christmas wreath is the perfect outdoor decoration, combining evergreen branches with decorative ribbons and pine cones. We think a Christmas wreath (or two) would look gorgeous hung from your TimberTech Radiance Rail

Let There Be Light

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without lights. If you haven’t already, we recommend investing in our Energy-Efficient Led Decking Lights. Available in five different colours, these lights will not only make your decking look incredibly Christmassy, but they will also ensure you can use your decking safely throughout the winter months – a great investment or gift.

Alternatively, you could invest in some waterproof Christmas lights and intersperse them through your trees and wind them around your decking to achieve a similar festive effect!

Beautiful Baubles

Add a touch of Christmas to the garden with some beautiful outdoor baubles. We think silver and red baubles, like the ones you see here, perfectly complement our EasyClean Terrain Composite Decking in Silver Maple. For warmer decking shades like Elm or Birch, you could use gold and copper baubles to achieve a similar effect.

Decorating your outdoor areas for Christmas can be just as fun as decorating the house! These are just a few ideas, but we’re sure once you start, you’ll think of many more. 

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.
