The winter season has a unique ability to transform the outdoors into a serene and peaceful landscape. With the right exterior design elements, your composite decking area can look equally beautiful in all seasons. At North Valley Composites, we encourage our customers to get the most out of their composite decking by enjoying it throughout the year. Whether warm or cold outside, you can still make the most of your outdoor space with our composite decking solutions. So, we’ve put together some creative ideas to help you elevate your outdoor space, making it a warm, beautiful, and relaxing haven where you can unwind and enjoy the chilly season out on your deck! 1. Festive gatherings Winter doesn’t have to mean the end of your social life. In fact, with a little effort, you can turn your composite decking into a cosy spot for gatherings, especially at Christmas. Consider setting up an outdoor heater or a table-top fire pit to chase away the chill, and add some snug blankets to seating areas to create an inviting space for socialising the night away. Comfortable chairs or benches can also help create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and if you want your decking to be weatherproof, why not consider introducing a veranda into the mix? 2. Winter garden and decor Winter is the perfect time to get festive with beautiful decor, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be Christmas-themed if that’s not your style; you can opt for winter-themed instead! Create a cosy and inviting atmosphere by adding festive elements to your outdoor space. One of the best ways to decorate your deck is by hanging fairy lights, which can instantly transform your outdoor space and help you see that it’s getting darker earlier! Additionally, you can add some elegant wreaths, garlands or lanterns to your deck railings or walls to create a charming look. You can also introduce some potted evergreens or seasonal plants to your deck for an extra pop of winter charm and colour. 3. Bird watching During winter, your deck can be transformed into a nature observatory where you can enjoy the beauty of nature up close. By setting up bird feeders, baths, or nesting boxes, you can attract various winter birds like Robin Red Breasts and create a haven for them. If you’re an avid birdwatcher, you can arrange comfortable seating near windows or create a sheltered area with an unobstructed view. This will allow you to observe diverse bird species visiting your deck and add a delightful touch of wildlife to your winter landscape.
