What are the benefits of timber decking in modern architectural applications?
With outdoor living playing such a huge part in Australian life, designs for exterior spaces need to be delivered with the same attention to detail as interiors.
Timber decking has everything from stylish looks to incredible functionality and durability. Five stand-out benefits of timber decking are:
- Increases property value
- Practical for the indoor-outdoor family
- Transforms lifestyle properties
- Stunning visual appeal
- Strength and durability
1. Increasing your property value with a timber deck
A striking outdoor timber deck can add value to a property.
Integrating high performance wooden decking solutions into designs has the potential to increase a property’s value and improve return on investment when it goes to market.
A striking deck can aggrandise the look of a home significantly. When the doors are thrown open to an impressive outdoor space displaying a beautiful timber deck, the effect on potential buyers or investors will be lasting.
2. Practical decking for the indoor-outdoor family
Reflect the needs of the Australian indoor-outdoor family with durable wooden decking.
Indoor-outdoor family homes are in demand. They offer more space for growing families and enable parents to remain indoors yet still feel connected to their children playing outdoors.
Outdoor decks are a flexible, practical application that can maximise the potential for unused yard space to accommodate family needs.
While composite wood decking is another great choice for an outdoor family area providing the look of timber decking but being completely maintenance-free.
3. Transform your lifestyle with timber decking
A free-flowing lifestyle property.
Decking boards are a great lifestyle property choice. They feel good underfoot, are comfortable to walk on and don’t get too hot in the sun, great for the Australian climate.
Given the potential for timber decking to integrate indoor and outdoor living spaces, it’s a great choice for architects looking to achieve a free-flowing effect. Timber decks are great for socialising outdoors from the comfort of your own home.
By creating an indoor living area that flows through to the exterior deck, the transition between spaces can be so smooth it goes unnoticed. This is particularly emphasised where timber flooring is used throughout.
4. The ultimate visual appeal with outdoor decking
The visual appeal of timber is renowned.
The stylish and warm look of hardwood and composite decking options can transform a backyard into an elegant, modern entertaining area with huge visual appeal and the allure of al fresco living.
Our decking solutions offer timeless beauty and come in a wide range of stunning hardwood and composites.
5. Provide strength and durability in style with timber decking
Functional layouts need strength and durability.
Architectural designs for outdoor living spaces need to be both sophisticated and practical to meet the increasing demand for functional layouts and usable areas.
Both Hardwood decking and composite decking combine head-turning elegance and practicality. Hardwood is extremely durable and long-wearing while composite decking is maintenance free – both perfect for high traffic areas such as outdoor kitchens and entertaining areas.
If you are after an outdoor solution that offers durability, strength and safety, look no further than an elegant timber deck!
