3 Stunning Deck Ideas for Your Home in 2022

Posted August 15, 2022

Are you looking to improve your deck this summer? Fortunately, there are plenty of stunning deck ideas that will provide you with inspiration for your next outdoor project! And, you’ll be happy to know that wood is not your only option for decking. Thanks to new materials and technologies, you can get a beautiful deck that looks like natural wood but without all the upkeep.

Here are three deck ideas that will transform your home in 2022.

1. Composite Decking

Composite decking is a combination of wood pulp and recycled plastic. Plastic might not be the first material that comes to mind when thinking of decking, but it’s revolutionizing outdoor construction. Compared to natural wood, plastic is more resistant to moisture and insects. You can also choose a custom color or wood grain to complement the exterior of your home.

The benefit of choosing composite decking over other materials is that it has a more natural appearance because it does contain wood fibers. This makes it possible to emulate the look and feel of real wood. Composite is also stiffer than materials like PVC and can span greater distances.

2. PVC Decking

PVC decking is also made from artificial materials. The difference between PVC and composite is that PVC decking is 100% plastic as opposed to plastic and wood pulp. This high-strength plastic is called polyvinyl chloride, though it’s important to point out that PVC decking is not the same as vinyl decking.

Like composite decking, PVC decking is resistant to moisture and insects. It’s sold in a variety of textures, colors and profiles, allowing you to mimic the look of expensive decking options.

3. New Railing

If you decide to update your deck with composite or PVC decking, you’ll also want to update your railing. Fortunately, deck railings are available in composite and PVC materials so that you can enjoy one cohesive look. Updating your deck railing also keeps your deck safe and prevents splinters since your hands will move along a smooth surface.

As you make these improvements to your deck railing, consider some of the latest trends. For example, you can choose a different color for your deck railing to make a bold statement, or you can use the railing to tie everything together.
