Your deck can be the star of your home, a place for fun and relaxation. However, for many homeowners, this area is neglected in favor of other rooms in the house. As a result, it deteriorates and ceases to be the great spot to hangout and enjoy some off time. If you’re looking to get more use out of your outdoor space, then get in touch with seasoned deck experts – Better Building.

Daniel and his team of specialists at Better Building offer tailor-made decking solutions that take your outdoor space to the next level. We’ll listen to your ideas and then put together a plan on how to make them a reality. Maybe you’d prefer real wood or are happy with a timber deck composite wood which is more low maintenance? Perhaps you are looking for innovative ways to integrate your BBQ? Through our free on-site consultations, we’ll walk you through all the options.

Not sure? Before giving Better Building a call, here are some deck-enhancement suggestions to get your creative juices flowing!

Brighten your Deck with Lighting

The key to leveling up your deck is versatility. You want to make improvements that allow you to use your deck more often. Some simple lighting can help you achieve this! Freestanding lamps, fairy lights, or solar panel lighting can all help to bring your deck to life when the sun goes down. This means your family will be able to use it long into the evening, which is especially valuable during the long nights of winter.

Add a Screen and Canopies

If you want your deck to stand out, then you need to add a few flourishes. Consider adding a screen to your deck. It will make your decking feel more cozy, private, and distinct from the garden. It can also make it safer for kids. Are you looking to weatherproof your deck nights? Add a canopy! Bring the deck together, and make your guests feel more connected under one roof. No more excuses for the gettogether you’ve been putting off due to bad weather!

Wash and Re-stain

Never underestimate the power of a good clean. Use a pressure washer and see how your deck transforms. You can then give your deck a new coat of stain, to give your timber a fresh look and safeguard the wood. Simple things like this can really make a difference if your deck has not been treated for a long time. Better Building will gladly do this work for you and help you rediscover the value in your deck. Start with small changes like these, and soon you will be inspired to get even more creative with your outdoor area.
