There’s Nothing Quite Like Entertaining On A Brand New Hardwood Deck

09 Aug, 2018

With Summer around the corner, most people in Perth are ready to start thinking about entertaining at home.  And more and more people are choosing to entertain at home in a more personal atmosphere than opting to eat out at restaurants.  There’s no better way to entertain at home than on a brand new outdoor timber deck!  Anyone that chooses to install a new timber deck would have to agree that entertaining is when a new deck will really shine!  Whether people are having a casual barbecue with family or a big bash with lots of friends, outdoor timber decking provides the perfect entertainment platform!

Outdoor timber decking would have to be the statement piece of any Perth backyard. It is the place where people spend most of their time when outdoors. Because outdoor timber decking is so widely used, it is important to plan the area carefully.  Consideration should be given as to how the decking area will be used and how the space should be broken up into functional areas. 

Some ideas to consider when planning an outdoor decking may include:

  • Families with young children should consider creating a play area for children.  This area of the decking can include a small picnic table and toy box.
  • Any new outdoor timber decking should include a food prep area. This can be as simple or as elegant as the homeowner wants.  A simple option would include a barbecue or outdoor cooker, or for the chefs out there, an outdoor kitchen complete with pizza oven, food prep bench and bar fridge is ideal!
  • Make sure there is enough space to move around the decking area.  There’s nothing worse than outdoor decking that has no free surface space.  This makes it hard to move around and enjoy yourself.
  • When planning new outdoor decking as an entertainment area, it is important to consider lighting.  Having the right lighting in an outdoor entertainment area can make a big difference in creating the right atmosphere.  Lights can be included in the floor of the timber decking, along the walls, on the ceiling or even hanging from the roof.
