The Hottest Deck Trends Of 2022

Maybe 2022 is the year you finally get to start creating your dream outdoor space. If so, congratulations!

Need some ideas to get you started?

Here’s what other homeowners are loving in 2022:

Trend #1:


One of the latest 2022 deck trends calls for ditching—or rethinking—the traditional railing. Instead, you can install a cable railing system with metal balusters that run horizontally rather than vertically. Or try water-resistant PVC and vinyl railing. To gain more surface area for dining, put in cocktail railing, which is a flat surface on top of the railing that’s wide enough to fit a cocktail.

Trend #2:


Building outdoor living spaces is one thing.  Building a space where you can sit and enjoy a private date night with your loved ones, quiet moments with the kiddos, and safely tucked away neighbourhood gatherings is the next level.

This year, we’re expecting to see a big increase in adding privacy screens to previously built decks in the past couple of years.  There are so many options when it comes to privacy screens, Balau, Clado Calyx, Composite,Garapa, IPE wood, Jatoba, Meranti, Salinga and pine.

Composite allows homeowners, decking installers, and architects to enjoy all the benefits of a wooden deck without the high maintenance requirements of a traditional timber deck. With value added sustainability and durability, a composite deck will last for years without ever having to be re-painted, re-oiled or re-stained, and can be cleaned quickly and easily.

  • Moisture Resistance: Due to the encapsulation process used in production, composite products are less susceptible to the build-up of moisture – making composite ideal for coastal conditions
  • Innovation: New profiles to make the composite market more price competitive, a large range of accessories and colours for more variety in choice
  • Insect Resistant: Does not contain wood characteristics which attract problem insects, so it’s the perfect product for regions with climates which tend to encourage insect breeding
  • Low Maintenance: Decks made from composite materials don’t need to be re-painted, re-oiled or re-stained, requiring only a quick sweep and wash every so often
  • Comfort: Composite materials do not splinter and are non-slip, making it the perfect surface for areas around swimming pool and patio decks as it’s completely barefoot friendly.

Wood Plastic decking

  • Eco-Friendly: Wood plastic decking is made from 95% recycled material, contains no toxic chemicals or preservatives, and are certified green for sustainability as well as energy and water efficiency
  • Easy DIY Installation: Integrated concealed clip system with grooved decking makes for a seamless finish
  • Superior Anti-slip Properties: The textured surface of composite products prevents slipping and is rated one of the best in the industry
