Unlock the Potential of Your Decking
Even if your decking is not particularly large there are ways to make it feel bigger and lighter. You can fully utilise the space with these three simple tips.
This week’s blog at Fitrite Fencing & Decking Ltd looks at how you can make the most of your decking area.
Make the Space Feel Larger
When initially designing your decking, you should try to situate it in a spot that gets plenty of sunlight if possible. Lots of light and cool colours will make the space feel more open than if you use dark and warm colours.
If you already have a patio or similar, installing decking as an extension to it will make one large outdoor area. Combined with compact storage and furniture, it will feel very spacious.
Also, some simple additions can create a feeling of even more space. For example, attaching a mirror to a wall or tabletop will reflect the openness of your garden.
Keep it Decluttered
There are two methods for keeping your decking free of clutter and applying both will have the biggest impact. Installing clever storage solutions will keep all the items you want outside tucked away. This could include plants, gardening tools and books for reading out in the sun.
Adopting a more minimalist approach to owning things is the second method. Th is is because reducing the amount of stuff you have to store will make decluttering easier in the first place.
Essentially, the more floor and surfaces that are kept clear of things, the more expansive the space will feel. With everything sensibly put away, you will have a clear walkway through the area.
In order to utilise your decking area fully, you should prioritise comfort over all else. There are many outside sofas and cushions to choose from to make your time spent reading and eating out in the garden very enjoyable.
You can furnish the space with rugs, canopies and plant pots to make it as inviting as possible. Additionally, a fire pit or chiminea will keep everyone warm in cooler weather meaning that even in the autumn you can make the most of your decking.
If you have the space, installing outdoor speakers, a hot tub or even a trampoline can create an exciting and inviting area for all the family. There are many options available for you to design it exactly as you want it.
