Spring and summer with their warm sunny days, provide the best time to be outdoors, relaxing with friends and family.
Trex the eco-friendly decking company is encouraging homeowners to maximise the use of their outdoor living areas this summer, with patios, decks, or terraces.
With this in mind, Trex has produced some guidelines to help people transform an ordinary back-yard into an outside oasis:
Make best use of your space: Depending on how and for what reasons you prefer to use your outside space, entertaining friends, family lunches or as a restful area. With both comfort and function in mind dedicate areas for barbecues, dining and socialising. Add function and style, with built-in planter pots and tall potted plants.
The right materials matter: If you aim to exspend more time enjoying your deck, rather than maintaining it, opt for low-maintenance products that only require soap and water for cleaning, to preserve their fine appearance.
Trex decking is a wood alternative, therefore it resists stains and fading, scratches and mould, due to its special protective finish and high-traffic process; even after enduring years of splashes, spills and mishaps, making it an ideal decking for the whole year round.
Plan with distinction: Think about how your chosen space relates to its surroundings and let that inspire you, when creating your patio. Select a design and range of colours that complement your house’s exterior and reflect its natural environs.
Or you can experiment online with the Trex Deck Visualiser and Deck Designer tools, to work out how to integrate the elements of your outdoor living areas.
Add finesse with finishing touches: These days homeowners are tailoring their outside living aeas, to reflect their individual preferences and interests. However, if you have to keep within a fixed budget, try adding tropical plants or lively pillows for cool touches of colour and character.
