Winter offers us the opportunity to snuggle up and be warm, but it also makes us daydream about summery days spent on the beautiful decks in Kingscliff. To get through the colder, somewhat gloomy season of winter, our team at Coastal Living Renovations decided to take a look not only at ways to spruce up your deck for winter but what the trends are for decks this year. As with gardening, winter is a great time to plan and prepare for the warmer months! So whether you are planning to do some winter maintenance, decorate to amp up the cosy factor, or are looking at a brand new deck to enjoy when things warm up, here are our top picks!
Five Handy Winter Maintenance Tasks
Want to make sure your deck is in great shape? Here are our top winter maintenance tasks:
- Fix and repair – inspect your deck for any loose boards or protruding nails
- Deep clean time – make sure to use timber friendly methods and products
- Feed your deck – oil and coat your deck to give it that extra protection
- Regular cleaning – leaves, debris and even spilt soil under pot plants must go!
- Problem treatments – make sure to address any mildew, water damage, etc.
Quick Decorating That Makes Winter Feel Indulgent
Have a few spare minutes? Want to spend a few hours making your deck more inviting? We recommend introducing three main things: life, luxury, and light. Specifically, bring in some plants that can manage the cold; add some indulgent textures in the form of throw pillows, blankets, and the like; and for the final touch, make sure to amp up the ambience with lighting from candles to permanent fixtures.
2021 Trends To Look Out For
We can’t stop ogling the gorgeous decks of 2021! We see a lot of open plan fusion to extend indoor spaces as well as the creative use of structure to create a space that is both inviting and private. At home, spaces are being used in new ways, and functionality has been a big driver in deck design decisions. From remote work done in the comfort of your yard to intimate family dinners, we see decks working double time!
