Another job well done from DeckPlus! We recently had the pleasure to install some of our stunning WeatherDek Aged Oak composite decking, and we think it turned out pretty great (if we do say so ourselves). Our WeatherDek Aged Oak composite decking is one of our most popular products, and it’s easy to see why – with such classic beauty, you’re guaranteed the perfect finish every time.  

For this project we collaborated with our sister company, SunSpaces – their Panorama garden room was the perfect match for these sleek and luxurious composite decking boards.


Getting stunning new decking for your garden is an exciting time. And what's more, now that you’ve finally got the outdoor space you wanted, it's time to start decorating!

Selecting furniture for your new decking space allows you to start adding your own personal touches – it’s finally time to make your decking your own, personalise it with furniture and finishing touches that make it truly unique.

With so many different furniture materials, styles, and designs available on the market, it can be difficult to know where to start. Here at DeckPlus, we’ve put together a compilation of some of our favourite outdoor furniture pieces to help you get inspired!

Mostly 1’s: Warm & Earthy

If you got mostly 1’s, you’ll likely be a good match with a warm and earthy tone decking, such as the EasyClean Edge+ Oak Decking and EasyClean Reserve Dark Roast Composite Decking. This type of decking doesn’t stand out too strongly from the crowd, keeping any striking visual contrasts to a minimum. These dusky decking tones let the garden do the talking – opt for a composite decking that can be charming without stealing the show.

Mostly 2’s: Neutral and Cool

Neutral decking is the perfect option for those who got mostly 2’s – it’s neutral, easy to pair with different colour palettes and furniture, and classic. Some great examples of composite decking options for those who got mostly 2’s include WeatherDek Grey or EasyClean Edge Maritime Grey Decking.

Mostly 3’s: Moody & Chic

If you got mostly 3’s you’re probably compatible with a decking like WeatherDek Charcoal Composite Decking or EasyClean ReversaDek Light / Dark Composite Decking. They’re bold, modern, and will give your outdoor space a contemporary aesthetic like no other decking can.
