Creating the ultimate outdoor entertaining area
It’s no secret that Australian’s love to entertain, so having a great outdoor area is key to every home.
Creative Structures are the brains behind this quintessential coastal home in Henley Beach South, Adelaide. A three-bedroom, two-living room house, this family home simply needed an innovative decking solution around the pool and alfresco entertaining area to bring it to life.
The project called for a moisture resistant decking solution that wouldn’t be affected by pool chemicals like chlorine, and wouldn’t warp or splinter as a result of sun exposure.
Creative Structures chose HardieDeck™, a fibre-cement decking material that is hard wearing and made to withstand heavy foot traffic, from weekend BBQs to Christmas parties.
Using HardieDeck enabled Creative Structures to employ the coping method around the pool; a method used to separate the pool structure from the pool decking, providing a neat, flush finish aligned with the modern look of the house.
As well as the time-cost saving benefits of using HardieDeck, Creative Structures were able to paint the deck, colour-matching it to the house and creating a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor rooms.
“The product has come up well," says a Creative Structures representative, “it was easy to install and looks impressive.”
