We’re in the midst of summer, which means it’s the ideal time to get outside and enjoy the warmer weather! Your deck is the perfect place to take in the sunshine this season. Whether you’re hosting a BBQ for friends and family or spending a relaxing evening lounging outdoors, your deck is undoubtedly where all the action is at. Therefore, it’s important to ensure it’s well maintained and decorated in a way that will maximise its value and help you make the most of these fleeting summer months.
The following post provides some stellar ideas to consider when decorating your deck.
Create a hideaway with tall potted plants
Think of mini trees and potted plants as a makeshift hedge, and build a wall to give your deck a cosy feel. Though we’re sure you love your neighbours, sometimes it’s nice to enjoy your deck in privacy. Arrange a plant “wall” to whatever height you like. This will add a lushness to your outdoor space while enclosing it beautifully.
Paint to perfection
If your deck is in need of a quick and inexpensive pick-me-up, slap on a coat of paint or stain. A sharp-looking deck is a cared-for deck, and regular maintenance is essential if you want your outdoor oasis to reach its full potential! For a fun change, paint your deck a new colour. Sandtex has plenty of quality timber paints in alluring shades!
Set a magical ambiance with lighting
Is there anything more lovely on a summer’s eve than a cool breeze, a colourful sunset, and a soft glow? Create a magical ambiance with light! Outdoor string lights can easily be woven throughout the deck railing and we recommend placing varying sizes of lanterns on the deck floor for a casual, bohemian feel. Get ready to be wowed!
Deckscape with various flowers
If your deck is in need of rejuvenation, just insert some flowers! Flowers look amazing anywhere, and this includes your exterior spaces! Think lovely lilies, delightful daisies, and alluring alstroemerias (to name a few!).
Welcome visitors with inviting furniture and textiles
Think of your deck as an extension of your home; another room of the house. Like any area you inhabit, you want your deck to be comfortable and welcoming. Ensure the furniture on your deck is as inviting as it should be. Add pillows for extra comfort and visual appeal, and make sure there are rugs on hand for those chilly nights! Revive wooden deck furniture with a fresh coat of paint/stain and try a new colour or two for a change of style.
