Benefits of timber decking in modern architectural applications
Published 24 Apr 2017 in News
With outdoor living playing such a huge part in Australian life, designs for exterior spaces need to be delivered with the same attention to detail as interiors.
Timber decking has everything from stylish looks to incredible functionality and durability.
Five stand-out benefits of timber decking are:
- Increases property value
- Practical for the indoor-outdoor family
- Transforms lifestyle properties
- Stunning visual appeal
- Strength and durability
A striking timber deck can add value to a property
Integrating high performance wooden decking solutions into designs has the potential to increase a property’s value and improve return on investment when it goes to market.
A striking deck can aggrandise the look of a home significantly. When the doors are thrown open to an impressive outdoor space, the effect on potential buyers or investors will be lasting.
Reflect the needs of the Australian indoor-outdoor family
Indoor-outdoor family homes are in demand. They offer more space for growing families and enable parents to remain indoors yet still feel connected to their children playing outdoors.
Decks are a flexible, practical application that can maximise the potential for unused yard space to accommodate family needs.
While composite wood decking is another great choice for an outdoor family area providing the look of timber decking but being completely maintenance-free.
A free-flowing lifestyle property
Decking boards are a great lifestyle property choice. They feel good underfoot, are comfortable to walk on and don’t get too hot in the sun, great for the Australian climate.
Given the potential for timber decking to integrate indoor and outdoor living spaces, it’s a great choice for architects looking to achieve a free-flowing effect.
By creating an indoor living area that flows through to the exterior deck, the transition between spaces can be so smooth it goes unnoticed. This is particularly emphasised where timber flooring is used throughout.
