Outdoor Decking Trends For 2019

  • Bringing The Inside, Outside Garden decking is often perceived as 'something to sit on when there's warm weather about'. The truth is that it can (and should) be used for a myriad of activities, all year long. Many homeowners now look upon the decks as an extension of their home, increasing the amount of living space on offer. This train-of-thought is seeing trends develop in the placement of outdoor kitchens, fireplaces and entertainment facilities upon garden decks, stretching out the space available around the home.



  • Home/Work Blend – Whilst the lines between the interior and exterior of the home are becoming blurred, so are the lines between home and work. As more people than ever take advantage of flexible technology to work from home, another major trend to develop in recent years has been the use of garden decking in Guildford as a commercial facility. Not only does this help the user to have more space around the home, being present in a more natural environment can cater for better health and wellbeing too – one of the many reasons why people introduce decking structures to their homes in the first place.


  • Increased customisation – With garden decking being seen as more of an extension of the living quarters (rather than just an additional facility), more-and-more people are placing increased levels of customisation on their decks. Whilst there are almost limitless design possibilities, some of the more popular elements/materials may include lighting, glass or stone.




  • More storage – In many gardens, the land underneath a raised deck may be vulnerable to water; potentially causing long-term issues with rotting. Whilst weatherproofing a deck will prevent such a situation from happening, the dry area underneath that will be protected, can be utilised for other tasks – such as storage. This further helps to create space upon the deck or within the home, helping the homeowner to get the most from their investment.

So there are just a few of the emerging trends with garden decking in Guildford for 2019. If you're interested in creating your own ideal garden structure, why not get in touch with the timber specialists here at Pennyhill who can help you source some fantastic materials, for a great-value price?
