When Planning your deck, it is a good idea to plan which style of planking will fit best for your deck and budget. Flip through the Past Work to see a number of these style combined. A spine with a picture frame. Or the deck planked on the 45° with a spine and Picture Frame. Planking with different styles can add a lot of character, with not adding a lot to the budget.
Clean, Simple, Classic. Straight Planked is great for decks that can take full length boards and have no but joints. If your deck is over 16″ wide, perhaps look at getting your deck planked with a Spine!
Picture frames are a nice touch to add to a deck. It adds a beautiful boarder, and caps off the end of the planks (as opposed to a straight plank). It can tie in very nicely with railings as well. You can get creative and make the picture frame a different colour when decking with composite decking.
This is a great way to break up the length of your deck that exceeds 16′ wide and adding a bit of a design factor. Inserting a plank perpendicular to the rest of the boards, breaks up the long deck, and can be strategically placed where ever it makes sense. In this photo we placed it to the left of the stairs.
This is a beautiful way to plank a deck. It is ideal for very wide (greater then 16′), but shallower (opposite to deep) than 11′. The idea is a 16′ board can span 11′ diagonally with no butt-joints. Leaving your wide deck with ZERO joints throughout. There is more waste in material, and needs extra framing to support the diagonal boards, but the end product is fantastic
