When it comes to enhancing the beauty and functionality of your Australian home with a stunning composite decking solution, you’re likely to find yourself torn between two popular options: Spotted Gum decking and Merbau decking.

Brite Decking’s HD PRO range presents an ingenious solution to this dilemma, offering both exceptional colours on the same board with its remarkable double-sided design.

Comparing Spotted Gum Decking and Merbau Decking:

Remember that the choice of decking colour is a matter of personal preference and should align with your aesthetic goals and the overall design of your outdoor area.  When considering the Merbau vs. Spotted Gum decking choice, take into account the following factors:

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Are you drawn to the warm and elegant charm of Merbau or the natural vibrancy of Spotted Gum?
  • Architectural Harmony: Which color complements your home’s architectural style best (both indoors and outdoors)
  • Personal Preference: Which hue resonates with your unique taste and vision for your outdoor space?

Merbau Decking Explained:

The Merbau option within the HD PRO range pays homage to the timeless appeal of traditional Merbau wood, celebrated for its rich and inviting reddish tones. Choosing Merbau decking means crafting an outdoor sanctuary that exudes warmth and elegance, effortlessly complementing various architectural styles.

Choosing a Merbau colour for your composite decking can be a fantastic option in various scenarios, these include:

  • Warm and Cozy Aesthetic: If you are after an outdoor space with a warm and inviting ambiance, Merbau is an excellent choice. Its rich, deep tones exude warmth and elegance, creating a cozy atmosphere perfect for relaxation and entertaining.
  • Traditional or Classic Architecture: Merbau’s classic and timeless appearance pairs beautifully with traditional architectural styles. If your home features elements of classic design, such as columns, gables, or ornate details, a Merbau-coloured decking can complement the overall look.
  • Contrasting with Lighter Surroundings: Merbau’s dark and rich colour can create a striking contrast when used in outdoor settings with lighter-coloured surroundings. This can help draw attention to your deck and make it a focal point in your outdoor space.

On the flip side, the Spotted Gum decking variant offers a more natural and vibrant appearance, echoing the hues found in native Australian timber. Opting for Spotted Gum decking allows you to seamlessly integrate your decking into the surrounding natural landscape, creating a harmonious outdoor retreat.

Selecting a Spotted Gum colour for your composite decking can be an excellent choice in various situations and design preferences and objectives, including:

  • Natural and Rustic Aesthetic: Spotted Gum decking embodies the natural and rustic beauty of native Australian timber. If you want your outdoor space to have a genuine connection with nature, Spotted Gum’s earthy and vibrant hues can help achieve that look and feel.
  • Blending with Natural Surroundings: If your property is surrounded by lush greenery or you have a garden with native Australian plants, Spotted Gum decking can seamlessly blend into the natural landscape. It provides a harmonious connection with the outdoors.
  • Mimicking Hardwood: If you appreciate the look of traditional hardwoods but want a more sustainable and low-maintenance option, Spotted Gum offers the appearance of hardwood without the associated drawbacks of ongoing maintenance
