Deck Design Trends: Eclectic Sophistication

May 31, 2019

Eclectic sophistication lets you add a touch of the unexpected to make otherwise traditional designs pop, with details that make all the difference. Set your foundation by taking inspiration from classic design, and then follow your whims to incorporate fun elements that capture your personal style.

1. Pick a Strong Base

Rich and contemporary decking colors like TimberTech AZEK Mahogany keep the look grounded, setting the stage to experiment with other bold details.


2. Push the Limits on Layout

How can you break the mold without looking too quirky? Try a Herringbone decking pattern. This layout offers old-world charm yet always manages to look fresh with its mesmerizing symmetry.


3. Choose Regal Railings

Our Premier Railing with a Pyramid Cap profile gives your deck a proud perimeter in classic white.

Open up your view with a cable infill that serves as a sleek contrast in style.

4. Delight with Landscaping

Shaped shrubs don’t always have to skew stuffy.

With a handful of ball-like Boxwoods, you get a touch of formality without losing out on the fun.


5. Give your Deck a Glow

Since this style leaves so much room to play with lighting, we recommend starting with built-in accent light sconces offer relaxed, ambient light to your outdoor space.

This classic touch allows you to that give off warm, ambient light.

From there, add on whatever string lights, lanterns, or standalone lamps that call to you.


6. Mix and Match Fabrics

The final touch? Textiles that you can swap out depending on the season or mood.
We love accent pillows with cheery prints.
