Deck Design Trends: Rustic Charm

May 31, 2019

Bring rustic charm to your deck by balancing decorative elements with the lush surrounding ones. Bold, earthy colors and textures wow up close and in connection with amazing views. Start with a dark wood deck, a sturdy railing, and build the look from there.

1. Pick a Strong Base

Perfect for docks and decks alike, Dark Hickory boards from TimberTech AZEK look lovingly lived-in yet can weather anything thanks to their capped polymer construction.


2. Design Your Deck With Pattern

Create spaces for the morning coffee or conversation with creative deck designs. The Assortment decking pattern lends itself to intricate inlays, as the narrow, standard, and wide sizes of these multi-width deck boards add subtle dimension.


3. Surround Strong

Keep the look strong with Premier Railing posts topped with Pyramid Caps with a sense of heritage. All black makes it modern while seamlessly highlighting warm, woody deck tones and scenery.


4. Light the Way

Embedded In-Deck Lighting does what bonfires can’t, illuminating stairs, walkways, and more.


5. Brighten Up

Mums give a burst of color without distracting from refined neutrals. Forgo traditional land scaping rules and scatter a few in natural clay pots around your deck.


6. Check Your Textiles

Buffalo check pillows, blankets, or cushions evokes campfires and coziness.
