Couples 'should look for garden decking which matches their wooden floor'

Posted on 14th Oct 2010 @ 2:38 PM

Those considering investing in garden decking have been told that finding some which matches the grain of their hardwood flooring is a good way to go.

Rebecca Jane, from Australian firm Install A Veranda, said that creating an outdoor living space which is elegant and appealing is achievable provided homeowners follow a few simple rules.

Among them is continuity, with Ms Jane stating that hardwood decking should match the wooden floors found in other parts of the property to create a good look.

"In some cases, even a similar match is better than none at all. If you have polished timber floors in your home, then try and pick a timber decking that will match the stain of the interior floorboards," she added.

According to the Press and Journal, decking can be particularly ideal for concreted, uneven or unkempt gardens, as it provides an area perfect for dining and entertaining.
