With summer just around the corner, many of us are now turning our attention to our outdoor spaces and considering what we can do to get more enjoyment out of them while the weather is at its best.
Composite decking has long been a popular design choice for commercial and residential property owners looking to utilise space whilst increasing the value of their investment – and in 2017 grey decking is the hottest outdoor furniture trend across London.
Neutral shades are all the rage: why you should consider grey decking
Interior and exterior design trends tend to move in cycles, but as a general rule neutral colours don’t go in or out of style. Grey decking is essentially timeless and will look just as stylish in five or even ten years’ time as it does now – even without maintenance. Composite grey decking is incredibly hard-wearing and most manufacturers offer warranties in the region of 10 years.
Composite grey decking will never:
• Require staining.
It also retains its colour indefinitely, making it the perfect choice for those with busy lifestyles who simply want to be able to enjoy spending time in their outdoor space without having to excessively tend their decking.
Environmentally friendly grey decking
Choosing composite decking
is choosing to care for the environment. Believe it or not, the majority of composites are actually produced from recycled materials
like plastic containers, shopping bags, sawdust and wood offcuts. It’s estimated that a 20 foot stretch of decking contains approximately 30 feet of material which would otherwise have ended up in a landfill site.
Despite its humble origins, composite grey decking has a look and feel that belies its former existence. The end result is a stylish, contemporary material with a finish most people would be proud to display to friends, family, neighbours and colleagues.
Composite grey decking is safer than traditional wood decking
For commercial premises where health and safety are paramount, it makes sense to choose composite grey decking. Because it is less likely to gather moss or algae or absorb water, it means the odds of any slips, trips and falls become marginally less likely.
The potential for splinters to cause injury is also completely negated, making it great for families with young children or pets running around.
