Timber decks are a great home improvement that can enhance the look and feel of your home and provide an inviting space where you can entertain friends and family all year round.

Even if you’re not much of an entertainer, a timber deck is also a great place to sit back, relax and enjoy those summer sunsets or simply just watch the world go by.

Nothing beats walking out your backdoor and enjoying the serenity that a timber deck provides.

Now that we’ve covered how a timber deck will improve your day to day life, let’s go through how a timber deck will improve your home.

Add another space to your home

As we’ve already touched on, a timber deck is a fantastic place to sit back and relax.

It’s always handy having another space in your home where you can do that, or somewhere peaceful where you can entertain guests.

A timber deck is a perfect addition to a home that provides a smooth transition from indoors to outdoors.

Dress it up with some décor or outdoor furniture and you really can create a warm and inviting space.

A timber deck also offers great benefits if you have a growing family.

It will provide another area in your home for you to sit down and eat, watch TV or even just hang out!

Improve the look and feel of your outdoor area

A timber deck can really add to the look and feel of your home.

Our design consultants will work alongside you to create a structure that suits you and most importantly your home, to make sure your new timber decking complements the existing features of your home.

A timber deck can also look great as part of a standalone structure like a pergola. Alternatively, you can install decking around your swimming pool to create a holiday at home feel.

Increase the value of your home

Outdoor home improvements will always increase the value of your home, and this is no different with a timber deck.

Installing a timber deck is not only a fantastic investment for the here and now, but if you’re ever planning on selling your home it’s a smart investment for the future as well.

Enjoy your new and improved outdoor area and have peace of mind knowing you have added value to your home should you plan on selling it in the future.

Timber decking can be paired with a number of backyard features

A timber deck is a great feature to pair with other outdoor home improvements to help further enhance your outdoor area.

Imagine having a swimming pool in your backyard that is surrounded by timber decking. It would be like your very own tropical oasis!

You could also feature a pergola or patio that is finished off with timber decking to create a peaceful area to sit back and catch up with friends.

Another popular option is timber decking that is paired with artificial grass. The options really are endless!

Timber decking is durable

The best part about timber decks is that they are strong and durable.

Depending on the type of timber you use and how well you maintain it, your deck could last up to 40 years.

It’s also important to ensure that you use the correct type of timber for your geographical location, as some timbers are more suited to certain climates.

Another great benefit of timber decking from Australian Outdoor Living is that we environmentally source our timber. Our beautiful and durable hardwoods are sourced from managed forests, meaning they are sourced in the most environmentally conscious way possible.
