How to dress-up the decking at your Cumbernauld home
You have a vision in mind. You want a platform on which the kids the safely play during the day, but adults can relax of an evening. You want it to be the space to entertain family and friends, the platform that connects the interior of your home to the exterior space at your property.
The decking at a Cumbernauld home no longer needs to be a flat, boring square or rectangle of wood. It can be shaped. It can be gargantuan or it can be a small, bijou space. It can be decked with lights and heat or it can be shaded with a pergola and plants.
In other words, the decking that you design and create at your Cumbernauld home can be what you want it to be.
Dress it up! Don’t hold back!
Possibly one of the most decadent additions to a decking, making it feel and look luxurious, is lighting. Solar lighting has come a long way since the very early examples of lights that charged all day, only to give an hour or two of very dull lighting in the garden.
You can incorporate lighting into the deck itself, giving a runway feel to it but you can also use lighting in other ways too. Why not browse online for the latest ideas and trends?
Again, adding heat, like light, can extend the useful number of time you can get from your decking. When the night air turns chilly, why not sit around a fire pit, mounted on a fire proof platform and enjoy the flickering flames, and delightful heat?
The position of the fire pit is important. Placing it in a corner may mean you do not benefit from the whole of the fire pit but placing it in the middle of the decking may constrain how you intend using it. Always bear in mind that the idea behind any decked addition to a garden is versatility.
On one hand, you want to bask in the sun and enjoy the heat but, without shade it can become unbearable and unusable. Adding a pergola is one option, with plants used to climb up the posts to provide even more shade.
Sitting, relaxing, enjoying the garden should a sensory experience. The sound of grasses rustling in the breeze, the scents and aromas from the plants mingling with the breeze, the colours and the textures. Make sure you spend some time – and cash – on completing the soft landscaping on your garden.
Decking at your Cumbernauld home can you enjoyment, as you learn to love your garden again. How will you dress it up?
