Design your dream outdoor living space with Trex decking

Looking to improve your garden? Installing a decking area is a great way to transform any outdoor living space. Using solid composite decking is a stylish, durable and very low maintenance alternative to traditional patio areas and can really help to bring your garden to life, as well as adding value to your property.

In the winter months it is a great time to start thinking of ideas for your dream garden space, ready to enjoy from Spring onwards. The first thing to consider is what you’re looking for from your garden space. Would you like somewhere for alfresco dining? How about an area to entertain guests or relax in? Or maybe, you’re just looking to make an unusable space, functional again? A composite decking area is the perfect way to create your dream garden.

When choosing composite decking for your garden it’s always key to work out where you’d like the location of it to be. The most popular choice amongst homeowners has to be directly next to your kitchen or living room. It helps to extend your home into the garden and makes it much easier to step outside and onto your decking area. It’s always a good idea to consider how private your decking space will be too, so you’re not overlooking your neighbours!

Trex decking  supplied from DeckDirect is ideal for designing any outdoor living space. It can be bespoke to your home, with a whole range of design features available so you can get your dream outdoor living space. The low maintenance and high-performance qualities of Trex decking makes it ideal for many uses. Both the Transcend and Contour ranges by Trex feature a solid shell, which is highly durable and weather resistant, so you can be sure your composite decking won’t fade, warp or splinter, making it safe for the whole family to use and enjoy.

Take a look at the top design features to consider when using Trex decking, to help you create the perfect solid composite decking area.

Trex decking styles

Trex decking can be designed bespoke to your outdoor space. This includes the shape and style of your solid composite deck.


The most popular style of Trex decking is the rectangular decking design. It’s a classic choice for many as it maximises the room available for you to use. Its standard shape makes for a really versatile space.


This style is perfect if you’re looking for an ultra-modern solution for alfresco dining. It has a distinguishing bump-out and works perfectly for smaller spaces.

Bevelled Edge

An alternative to the classic rectangular style, bevelled edge decking features angled corners which help to maximise the space and views. Perfect, for a larger area.
