Today – Christmas Decking Ideas
Christmas Deck-orations make the best Christmas decking ideas
From the very moment, the calendar flips from November to December, the Christmas countdown officially begins.
Seemingly overnight, festive classics fill the airwaves, Christmas parties fill the calendar and yuletide magic fills our hearts as Christmas spirit sweeps the nation.
For many of us, that holiday cheer means decking out the homestead in woodland greens, sparkling tinsel and more lights than Las Vegas itself.
But why stop at the front door? Well and truly deck the halls this Christmas with these festive outdoor decking ideas from DeckPlus.
Christmas Decking Ideas – Oh Holy Lights
The first port of call for anyone looking to bring some deck-orative flair to their decking area, outdoor lighting is simply a must-have item.
While you could take the traditional route of wrapping outside fairy lights around balustrades, pillars and doorways, decking has the unique perk of allowing you to implement outdoor lighting in a more permanent manner.
Installing LED decking lights is a great way to brighten up your outdoor space for the festive period. Best of all, they look great all-year-round and can still be utilised to great effect long after Christmas is over.
Outdoor decking lights are built-in to the deck itself, providing low-level uplighting that’s also completely safe to walk on. Gorgeously atmospheric, these lights are available in five different colours, including festive favourite red, green and white.
Festive Garlands for Christmas Decking Ideas
Sprucing up your deck railing or balustrades with festive garlands is the perfect way to bring some natural Christmas greenery to your decking area.
Decorate these classy additions with ribbons, baubles and Christmas lights to instantly transform your decking area into a wintry enclosure of wonderment.
To complement your decking style, opt for compatible colours that harmonise with your shade of decking; e.g. you may want to explore a combination of reds and silvers if your deck boards are grey.
Meanwhile, for more traditionally coloured decks that are rich in woody browns, you may prefer to use gold ribbons and copper-coloured baubles.
Christmas Decking Ideas – Wreathes
Much like the garland option, festive wreaths bring an unmistakable touch of class to your decking décor and are a stylish Christmassy addition that looks
Again, follow the same principles as the garland option in terms of colour-coordination by choosing a wreath that features complementary colours that work well with your deck colour.
Hang your wreath on the door or in a visible location midway along your railing to simultaneously provide your outdoor space with a symmetrical design and a centrally-focused festive feature.
What better way to bring the festive feels to your outdoor space than by adding a colourful Christmas ornament to your decking area?
Acrylic ornaments with built in LED lights are perfect for any outdoor space and ideal for bringing some festive cheer to your outside space.
Best of all, there’s a whole host of colourful options for you to choose from: from classy glowing reindeer models to adorable penguin families.
For a stylish addition to your Xmas deck, opt for bright white bulbs to bring some real wow factor to your outside space.
