Decking ideas for small and large outdoor spaces

These decking ideas will have something suitable for every decking style, and for every season. Yes, autumn is here, but that’s no reason to stop enjoy your deck. We say: invest in a nice electric heater, throw on a couple of blankets, and carry on. A great looking deck is about so much more than just the wood itself. Take inspiration from our brilliant decking design ideas for making your deck look just the business.

Add a pergola

If the sun ever does shine in the UK, you may want a little shade from it, so why not integrate a covered pergola into your decking design? You’ll also be able to grow a few vines along the structure to break up the space and add some greenery and lighten up the space.

Keeping warm on your deck

The fire pit has become one of the most sought-after decking accessories in recent years, and for good reason. Adding one to your deck space, and instantly the area becomes accessible on cooler days and evenings, keeping you warm and cosy. Plus, fire pits look really cool too.

Colourful furniture

The garden furniture on your deck doesn’t always have to be monochrome; by adding some colourful chairs you can really bring your deck area to life. Mix and matching your colours are the current trend right now and you’ll have the most fashionable outdoor dining space you could imagine. It’s fun, vibrant and maintenance-free, leaving you more time to sit, relax and enjoy your outdoor space.

Light up your decking area

There are many benefits to solar lighting, but the main one is the ease of installation. Adding some solar decking lights will make the decking area shine at night and will help shape the deck into a fun-filled, welcoming part of the garden. The more varied a selection you can install, the better the overall effect will be making your decking stand out during the day and through the night.
