Send me your deck pics

Hi everybody! 

 

Some of you may know that I've been hard at work for months on my Backyard Makeover. After what has been an ordeal, (I promise to update my original post with the many steps that were taken to finally get us to to this point) my deck is finally erected.

So I still need to complete the cladding on my planter boxes and complete my ledge along the fence - but I'm now at a point that I'm not too sure what to do. 

 

So I'd love to see everyone's deck pics for some inspiration for my own space. And any suggestions are most welcome!

Looks like a fantastic space. Well done. Do you envisage the area is primarily for entertaining?

 

Best addition to our deck was plumbing in a barbecue. The small investment in the plumber paid for itself in no time and there's no more running out of gas...

 

Second best investment was a very large Jarrah outdoor table with benches that can accommodate plenty of family and friends.

 

Third, a retractable outdoor blind to give sun protection.   

 

I'm sure the community will have lots of ideas and inspiration for you. Looking forward to seeing what you can come up with...

Hopefully you've also gone to the Workshop Gallery and filtered by Decking and Paving....

Lookin the goods @maknilsin

 

First thing that came to mind for me are some nice cushions so you can get as close to the timber as possible while kicking back with a beer.

@Jason I did know you could do that! I'll have to take a look.

 

@ProjectPete cushions could be a great idea. A good way to bring some colour into the space as well.

Hope you don't get bombarded with deck pics!

 

Totally agree with what @Jason said about getting your BBQ plumbed - so much easier than gas bottles. Can also get an outdoor fridge put in at the same time for keeping the beers cold.

 

Also, get yourself a day bed or large hammock so that you can chill out on your deck this summer!

Speaking of furniture, we bought some of these colourful Acapulco-style chairs on the weekend for relaxing by the pool. Might also work for adding colour to your deck area @maknilsin?
