Multi Width Decking: Eye-Catching Inlays

When speaking about a deck, the “inlay” refers to the patterned section within the deck surface. Inlay patterns can feature multiple deck board widths, colors, and orientations. A geometric inlay pattern, such as an inlaid square and herringbone runway, is a modern backyard idea that creates an eye-catching focal point for your deck design.

Benefits of Inlay Designs

BRINGS A DYNAMIC DESIGN TO YOUR YARD: The inlay design allows you to introduce new shapes and linework that can upgrade the look and feel of your home and yard.  

OFFERS AN INVITING SPACE FOR GUESTS: Nothing invites friends and family quite like a space that showcases well-crafted design. With their posh patterns, inlay designs allow you to designate certain areas for cooking, sitting, and play while also providing a place for your guests to gather.

Multi Width Decking: Polished Picture Frame Design

Another attractive use of Multi Width Decking is a picture frame design. Applying a picture frame to your deck involves running a deck board (or up to three) along the outer edge of the inlay, sometimes in a contrasting color. Standard-width picture frames combine refined style and straightforward protection by covering the ends of the deck inlay. With multi width deck boards from TimberTech, you’ll have even more ways to creatively picture frame your composite deck.

The Benefits of a Picture Frame Design

POLISHES THE LOOK OF YOUR DECK: The edge-tracing picture frame lends a nicely finished look to your outdoor living space while creating a natural cover to finish the ends of your composite deck boards. Alternate-width perimeters emphasize the well-crafted design at work and create visually interesting contrast.

MAKES YOUR DECK STAND OUT: A high-impact picture frame using multi width deck boards is a great way to make your deck stand out from others in your neighborhood. You can even use a different color than the inlay to further emphasize your deck’s perimeter.

Multi Width Decking needn’t only go underfoot. The TimberTech AZEK line can also be used to create coolly curved built-in deck benches thanks to its innovative capped polymer material that allows for heat bending. You can choose multiple colors and widths for a lively accent to show off the smooth curve of each heat-bent board.

The Benefits of Benches

SHOWCASES ARTISTRY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP: Using Multi Width Decking, you can create a uniquely designed permanent seating area that doesn’t depart from the materials, color palette, or look and feel of your deck. It’s a sophisticated way to bring both functionality and a fresh design to your outdoor living space.

IMPROVES YOUR DECK WITH INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY: A curving bench finished with multi width deck boards brings all the premium performance and unparalleled beauty of TimberTech decking to your seating solutions. Gone are the days of weathered chairs or stained couch cushions — and in are the days of easy maintenance, effortless comfort, and technology-driven design.
