Be prepared this summer, and start your dream decking-project now!
There really is nothing more amazing than a stunning deck to enjoy those hot Australian summers in the comfort of your own backyard. From the very basic to those who go like to the extreme, we have 11 stylish deck ideas for you to try!
A slightly elevated deck, a few bar stools and a hedge for privacy, and what do you have? The perfect, simple outdoor deck! The contrast of the decking against the white of the home really shows that sometimes less, is more.
Think back to that last, incredible holiday you had. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and you were lounging back in your very own Cabana. Oh wait – that was in your backyard.
A pergola that frames the table, a couple of outdoor curtains and voila – you’re very own vacation getaway!
If you have the space – make the most of it. There’s something whimsical about a deck that twists and winds around beautiful landscaping. A couple of flower beds and a beautiful old tree really top of the look!
While not always practical on wooden decking, a fire pit on paved stone is perfection! Enjoy the best of both worlds with a setup like this, including a built-in bench and undercover area.
Double storey equals double the space! Enjoy the weather year-round with a sheltered lower alfresco and an open pergola for when the nights are clear!
Bring the great outdoors in – or the great indoors out – with bi-fold doors like these! Bi-fold doors are the perfect way to open up a smaller space, create a seamless flow and let you enjoy the best of both worlds.
French Provincial lovers, this ones for you. The pitched roof creates a light, airy space that contrasts beautifully with the dark decking. Top it off with a couple of comfy white couches, a solid dining table and a chandelier, and you have yourself one fancy outdoor deck!
If you are limited on space or want to dress-up your balcony, here’s a solution that will please all! Climbing plants like jasmine or honeysuckle are perfect for a wall like this, with the added bonus of a beautiful scent.
Release your inner child and install your very own deck swings! Perfect for the playful at heart, but be sure the roofing can handle the weight.
It’s a real treat to watch a film under the stars, so if you can, why wouldn’t you? If you aren’t up for investing in an outdoor couch, chuck a couple of bean bags down and you’ll be set.
Warm, cosy and everything in between – that’s the kind of atmosphere fairy lights will give you! Add a few throws, a couple of lanterns and a rug or two, and you’ll be snug as a bug!
