Decking Guide: Inspiration & ideas for your garden decking

This post in our decking guide is all about inspiration – if you’re certain it’s time to build a deck in your garden, or you’ve got one but no idea what to do with it, then hopefully we can give you some pointers.

The possibilities are almost limitless, it just depends how far your imagination will take you!

Classic natural looks for your deck

Many people don’t want any fancy colours or finishes, they just want a beautiful, natural-looking deck. With the right products such as Owatrol’s Textrol, or Aquadecks wood oils and some attention to detail this can be absolutely stunning. Check out some of the photos in the gallery below for ideas.

Add a dash of colour to your garden deck with opaque finishes

With so many colour options to choose from, you can have almost limitless possibilities if you choose a product such as Owatrol’s Decking Paint to finish your deck. Check out the gallery below for some interesting and unique ideas.

Why not think about adding those little extras to make your deck really stand out?

Getting the look you’ve always dreamed of can sometimes take more than just the wood and the finish. Sometimes you need a little more to get that extra sparkle you want. Why not think about adding some interesting lighting to your deck to make it stand out from the rest? You’ve also got the benefit of a nice soft light in the evenings for sitting outside too.

You could also think about your planting – it doesn’t just need to be around your deck – you could think about either including raised planters within your deck or using pot and trellis to incorporate plants into your decking that way. It gives a really warm finish and helps the deck to sit nicely within your garden rather than stand out apart from it.

Or, if you have kids, why not go all out and incorporate a super fun play centre for them within your deck?! We’re sure it would be great fun for both the kids and adults alike!

    1. Hi Jayne,
      Unfortunately as the finish of Textrol depends on the type and colour of the wood you are applying it to we do not have a colour chart. However, if you are looking at a particular colour we are happy to send you a free sample. If you would like us to do this, please send an enquiry though the contact form with your full name and address and the colour you would like and we will get one sent out. Alternatively you could call us on 01582 592707.
      Many thanks,
      The Owatrol Team

    1. Hi Lynne,

      As this post included a whole range of inspirational shots form across the web, this image doesn’t necessarily include our products. However, if you’re looking for this sort of grey finish then we would recommend using our Decking Paint in Aged Grey.

      Hope this helps,
      The Owatrol Team
