Tips For Creating A Functional And Stylish Deck

Decking with a view of the countryside

Your outdoor space is an extension of your home, and decking plays a crucial role in transforming it into a functional and stylish space.

At Lakeland Verandahs, we understand the importance of creating a space that not only looks appealing but also serves your needs. Decking should be strategically designed and placed so that it delivers everything you want it to.

Follow our tips to help you achieve a deck that is both functional and stylish.

Plan Your Space

The first step in creating a functional and stylish deck is proper planning. Take some time to think about how you will use the space.

Consider your needs and lifestyle. Do you want a cosy spot for outdoor dining, a relaxation area, or a combination of both? Our team can guide you through this and design a deck at the size and layout that suits your requirements perfectly.

To make your deck truly functional, think about the features you can add to enhance its useability. Seating and storage benches are great additions that not only provide convenience but also contribute to the overall aesthetics of your space.

Choose the Right Materials

Selecting the right materials for your decking is essential, especially when it comes to durability and style.

UPVC decking is an excellent choice and doesn’t require staining or sealing, making it a hassle-free option that retains its beauty for years.

Optimise Your Deck’s Orientation

The orientation of your deck can greatly impact its functionality and comfort. Consider the path of the sun throughout the day and how you’d like the design to fit around this.

We can help you determine which area of the garden allows you the best view, whether that is a view into the house, views of the rest of the garden, or perhaps optimising a scenic view from beyond the garden.

We can help combine all the factors you want to optimise when helping design and offer suggestions to maximise its comfort and useability throughout the year.

Decking in the corner of the garden

With the right planning and materials, your deck can become the perfect place to relax, entertain, and make lasting memories with family and friends. By following these tips and choosing UPVC decking from Lakeland Verandahs, you can achieve a beautiful and durable outdoor space that you’ll enjoy for years.
