Ideas for you deck

If your deck is going to be a place where you can relax, then some rattan sofas or chairs are ideal for this. You may also want some table and chairs if you are planning on some alfresco dinning during the summer.

Decking always looks nicer with some mood lighting. This can typically be achieved with some strategically placed up or downlighters and some small LEDs embedded in your deck or around the edge.

No deck is complete without some planners and some signature plants. These should where possible be placed around the edge of the decking and can be used to frame pathways onto the decking.

Finally, if you are planning on some late nights or use of the decking starting in spring and going through to autumn you may also like to consider some sort of covering. There are various options for this from a simple timber frame with some form of covering, a gazebo or a professionally installed canopy that can be pulled across when needed. To accompany this, you may also need some form of heating which could be achieved with a chiminea, a patio heater or a fire pit. Each has different pros and cons. You should do your own research on this taking into account how efficient/effective each option is, how good/bad it is for the environment and what the cost is run each.
