Decking areas are an extremely useful and highly decorative addition to any outdoor space, so if you've already gone through all of the trouble and expense of installing one in your garden, then you'll want to make the most of it this summer.
When the warmer weather arrives, we want to spend as much time as we possibly can enjoying our outdoor space, so here are three ideas that can help bring that wow factor to your decking this year.

Infrared patio heaters
If the British weather is refusing to play ball and the cool temperatures are set to ruin your decking party plans, an infrared patio heater can offer the ideal solution. Energy efficient, easy to install and directly heating people and not losing the heat energy to the night air like gas patio heaters do, infrared patio heaters are perfect if you want to keep the party going outdoors once the temperature starts to drop
Easy to mount to walls and other outdoor structures, you can even opt for a remote control infrared patio heater so you won’t need to leave your seat to stay warm and cosy late into the evening.
If you want to keep energy bills low but still illuminate your decking areas this summer, the BLT Direct range of solar lights has several options that will enhance the look of your decking and provide excellent levels of light without costing you a single penny in energy.
From ground fitting lights that are easy to install and stop unwanted slips and trips when night starts to fall to solar wall lights that offer a stylish contemporary look, these clever solar additions are perfect for the energy conscious homeowner.
LED Strip Lights
Perfect for illuminating decking edges or steps, LED strip lights are 100% waterproof hardwearing and cost very little to power making them the ideal choice for outdoor decking areas.
The great thing about LED strip lighting is that it can be easily attached to any outdoor area where a power source is present, so don’t be afraid to experiment by attaching to railings, spindles and steps to create the effect you want.
BLT Direct also stock a wide range of LED strip light accessories to make your decking light project even easier, so don’t forget to take a look before you place your order.
