Embarking on a composite decking project can transform your outdoor living space, providing a durable, beautiful, and functional area for relaxation and entertainment.

With the increasing popularity of composite materials among Australian homeowners, understanding the essentials of decking design is more crucial than ever.

Here, we’ll guide you through designing your dream deck with Woodevo, Australia’s premier composite decking brand.

Before we dive right into designing your decking project, let’s talk about composite decking first. What exactly is composite decking?

Composite decking is a revolutionary material that combines the beauty of natural wood with the resilience and sustainability of synthetic fibres.

Woodevo composite decking is designed to withstand the harsh Australian climate, from the scorching sun to torrential rains, ensuring your deck looks stunning year after year with minimal maintenance.

Why Choose Woodevo for Your Decking Project?

Woodevo stands out in the composite decking market for its quality, durability, and range of finishes.

Our decking is designed to mimic the natural grain of wood, providing an aesthetically pleasing look without the upkeep of traditional wood decking.

Plus, Woodevo’s eco-friendly options ensure your decking project aligns with sustainable practices.

Decking Design Considerations

Designing the perfect composite deck for your Australian home involves more than just choosing the right materials.

It’s about creating a space that reflects your lifestyle, complements your home’s architecture, and stands up to the Australian climate.

Woodevo’s range of composite decking offers the versatility and durability to make your vision a reality. Let’s explore the key factors to consider when planning your deck design.

Assessing Your Space

Every great design begins with understanding the space you have. Consider the layout of your yard, the slope of the ground, and how the sun moves across your property.

These factors will influence the size, shape, and location of your deck. For example, a north-facing deck in Australia can offer year-round enjoyment, capturing the sun in winter and benefiting from shade in summer.

Functionality Meets Aesthetics

Think about how you want to use your deck. Is it an extension of your living space, a standalone feature, or a combination of areas with different purposes? Here are a few ideas:

  • Dining Area: Ideal for those who love to entertain, complete with a BBQ station.
  • Lounge Area: A cozy space with comfortable seating, perfect for relaxation.
  • Pool Surround: Enhancing the pool area with safe, water-resistant decking.

Once you’ve determined the functionality, consider the aesthetic aspects. Woodevo’s composite decking comes in various colours and finishes, allowing you to match or contrast with your home’s exterior. Think about incorporating patterns or borders for a unique touch.

Integrating Features and Accessories

Personalise your space with features that enhance the usability and ambiance of your deck:

  • Seating: Built-in benches or planters can define areas and provide functionality.
  • Lighting: Integrated lighting can extend the usability of your deck into the evening and add to its beauty.
  • Railings: Safety and style go hand in hand with the right choice of railings, which can frame your deck and offer privacy.

Planning for the Future

When designing your deck, it’s important to think long-term:

  • Expansion: If you might expand your deck later, consider how new sections will integrate with the existing structure.
  • Maintenance: Woodevo’s composite decking is low maintenance, but selecting designs that allow easy access to all areas will simplify cleaning and upkeep.

Professional Advice

While planning your deck, consulting with a professional can provide valuable insights.

They can help you navigate local building codes, ensure your deck is structurally sound, and optimise your design for both beauty and functionality.

At WoodEvo, we’ve worked with amazing installers who can, alongside our sales experts, assist, offering advice and sharing best practices to ensure your decking project is a success.
