Deck Extension Tips & Ideas

Transforming your house into a stunning sanctuary begins with upgrading your deck.  A well-crafted deck not only extends your living space but also elevates your home’s aesthetic appeal to new heights. It’s the perfect canvas for outdoor gatherings, relaxation, and soaking in the beauty of your surroundings. 

Deck Extension, Hardwood Timber

The choice of materials for your deck extension can significantly impact its appearance, durability, and maintenance requirements. Here are some material options to consider:

  1. Wood: Traditional wood decks offer a timeless, natural look. Cedar and redwood are popular choices due to their natural resistance to decay and insects. Pressure-treated lumber is also an economical option. However, wood decks require regular maintenance, including staining or sealing.

  2. Composite Decking: Composite decking materials, made from a combination of wood fibers and plastic, offer the look of wood without the maintenance. They are resistant to rot, fading, and splintering, making them a low-maintenance choice. Additionally, composite decking comes in various colors and textures.

  3. Hardwood: Exotic hardwoods like Ipe and Tigerwood are renowned for their durability and stunning appearance. While they come with a higher price tag, they offer exceptional longevity and a unique aesthetic.

Decking Materials

Sustainable Materials:

one of the most significant trends in deck construction is the emphasis on sustainability. Australians are increasingly conscious of the environment, and this awareness extends to their choice of decking materials. Traditional hardwoods like merbau and jarrah are facing competition from sustainable alternatives such as composite decking and thermally modified timber. 

Composite decking, made from a blend of recycled plastics and wood fibers, is known for its durability and low maintenance. Additionally, thermally modified timber is gaining popularity due to its resistance to decay. reduced carbon footprint, and unique, rich color options.

Sustainable Deck Finishes:

Homeowners are increasingly choosing sustainable deck finishes that protect the wood or composite decking while minimalizing harm to environment. Water-based stains and finishes are replacing traditional oil-based products, reducing volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions and offering a wider range of eco-friendly color options. These finishes not only protect the deck but also enhance its natural beauty.

Sustainable Lighting:

Deck lighting is undergoing a transformation, with a shift towards energy-efficient and eco-friendly options. Solar-powered lights, LED fixtures, and low-voltage systems are popular choices for illuminating decks and creating an ambiance while minimizing energy consumption.

Natural Landscapes:

To enhance the visual appeal of decks and create a harmonious connection to the surrounding environment, sustainable landscaping is being integrated into deck design. Native Australian plants, drought-resistant succulents, and eco friendly irrigation systems are being used to create green oases that seamlessly blend with the natural landscape. This trend not only enhances aesthetics but also contributes to biodiversity and reduces water consumption. 

Maximizing Views:

Australia’s breathtaking landscapes area a major draw, and homeowners are keen on maximizing views from their decks. Elevated decks, strategically places windows, and glass railings are being used to ensure uninterrupted vistas of the natural beauty.

Biophilic Design:

Biophilic design principles, which emphasise a connection to nature, are influencing deck design. This trend incorporates natural materials, such as wood and stone, as well as elements like living walls, water features, and natural light to create a sense of tranquility and well-being.
