Backyard designs to inspire your next project

Thinking of adding a deck to your backyard? Needing some inspiration for a renovation project? There are many architectural and inspirational features you can introduce to your outdoor space to enhance its overall appearance. DECO explores five backyard designs to inspire your outdoor sanctuary. 


Homes have increasingly adopted designs that allow a flow between indoor and outdoor spaces. Why not extend your indoor living to the outdoors with a beautiful deck? Australians love to enjoy their backyard and a deck is the perfect feature to enhance your entertaining spaces.  Decks are available in different materials and designs and most are custom fitted. For a low maintenance deck that can withstand UV rays, pets, chemicals and still look new for many years, choose DecoDeck. Traditional timber decks require a lot of care whereas DecoDeck will stand the test of time and requires no ongoing costs to maintain its appearance. 


Outdoor Kitchen

If you love backyard entertaining, why not consider installing a second kitchen in your alfresco area? Outdoor kitchens are a popular backyard feature and get a lot of use throughout the summer months. To add that wow factor to your second kitchen, explore our range of DecoSplash splashbacks. DecoSplash is ideal for outdoor kitchens as it is a hard-wearing finish that is unaffected by UV and harsh weather conditions. Not only is a powder-coated aluminium splashback durable, but it is also kitchen safe, hygienic and easy to clean, making entertaining feel effortless! There are a range of designs to choose from to suit your outdoor kitchen, or you can create your own.  


Open Pergola

Want to enjoy the sun but still have a bit of shade? Installing an open pergola can be a great feature statement to your backyard.  Open pergolas have been around for centuries and were traditionally used for supporting vines and trellises. Today, they are used to create architectural elements and secluded sections to a backyard. The open roof structure gives an area the frame of an enclosed space without actually being one. 

Pergolas are a great design feature if you want to add an aesthetic improvement to your backyard as well as make an entertaining or relaxing space seem more appealing. 


 Vertical Batten Wall

The growing appreciation for raw materials and natural finishes leads us to our next design inspiration, the timber batten feature wall.

The eye-catching vertical pattern of a batten wall adds a modern, geometric feature to your backyard, and looks fantastic when against block colours that offer a contrast to the timber look.

Whether you want to soften hardscapes or add warmth to your oasis, vertical battens deliver a striking effect that can enhance the appearance of any backyard. Looking for something low maintenance though? DecoBatten replicate the form, feel and appearance of natural timber with the Super Durable DecoWood powder coating. Achieve architectural style that is effortless to install and has no ongoing maintenance. 

Opening Roofs

Enhance your alfresco area with a specialised tailor-made opening roof system! Get full use of your outdoor entertaining area throughout the seasons and keep your guests comfortable with a remote-controlled roof. Opening Roof Specialists offer an aluminium opening roof system in a selection of our DecoWood colours that will give your alfresco a timeless look and make it enjoyable all year round.
