Gardens are getting smaller and more people are on the lookout for standout small garden decking spaces, particularly if you enjoy city living in Melbourne. These clever designs will give you stylish and standout solutions that will inspire you to create the perfect space for your outdoor space with our composite decking Melbourne.
We have the best tips and tricks for choosing the best materials, finishes, colours and layout to make your small outdoor feel more spacious.
1.Combine The Deck With A Mini Patio
Combining your composite decking area with a concrete patio will create a visually stunning space that looks like a larger, zoned area. The addition of mirrors can also make the space look twice the size.
Just because your space is small, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the look and feel of plants and floral displays. One of the best uses of space is to use the wall with containers to make a vertical garden. Wrapping the garden around the deck will make it look more cohesive and bigger.
Make the best use of any space that could be used to make clever seating and storage solutions. For example, creating seating around a tree trunk that doubles as storage.
Light colours make a small space feel larger, so choosing a light-coloured stain or decking paint will help your outdoor space feel more spacious particularly with your composite decking.
Like indoor small spaces, we can still make social spaces outdoors even when challenged with space. Adding an outdoor kitchen is just like squeezing in a small functional kitchen indoors and means you can still host outdoor meals with friends and family.
Exaggerating your gardens width by laying boards widthway will give your deck area a feeling of a space wider than it is. Also, laying them on both sides of the boundary will increase the look of space, and ensuring the outlook is pleasing to the eye will prevent the feeling of being boxed in.
7.Compact Garden Furniture
Picking the right type of furniture goes a long way to making your deck area feel spacious. Choosing furniture with small footprint that are either dual-purpose or have built in storage are ideal for a small space.
Potted plants are perfect for a small deck and allow you the flexibility to move plants around and onto different levels to liven up any outdoor area. The different heights and locations of potted plants will create impact on your space and are perfectly suited to raised beds or simply placed around the deck.
Any opportunity to create levels in your decking area is an opportunity to embrace. Rather than levelling out a garden slope, being able to create different zones helps create the feel of space that is purposeful and ambient.
Outdoor rooms are a wonderful extension to your home. While it doesn’t necessarily need a roof, a deck that has the flavor of moving the inside outdoors is perfect for making a small deck feel more centered and roomier. Adding a roof would be beneficial for more long term use.
Choosing paint for outdoors is just as important as your indoors as it will impact on how you use your space. A big difference to your small decking area can be made cheaply by simply choosing a pain that is contrasting to the whole zone. Choice of colour can make a space looked hemmed in or spacious and this is made much easier by a larger choice in outdoor paints available to us today.
